Bomag Americas Displays Two New Gen Milling Machines
Bomag Americas, Ridgeway, South Carolina, featured two of its new generation milling machine designs at CONEXPO-CON/AGG 2023 in Las Vegas.
Offering a maximum 42.7-inch milling width, the BM 1200/35-2 features an enhanced swiveling mechanism for selective milling of road and ground surfaces, making it ideal for county road, urban and roundabout applications.
The BOMAG BM 2200/65 large planer boasts a 58-inch milling radius to increase efficiency in tight-radius applications like small cul-de-sacs. The BM 2200/65 mill displayed at CONEXPO-CON/AGG was equipped with the Bomag exclusive Ion Dust Shield. With this unique system that protects machine workers, fine dust extracted from the milling chamber passes through the Ion Dust Shield box before being blown onto the conveyor belt.
Both of these new Bomag milling machines are designed with vibration-isolated operator stations with height-adjustable seats that swivel 45 degrees in either direction to improve visibility. Enhanced forward visibility offers operators a view of the cutting edge, milling track and the front danger zone around the conveyor.
To simplify milling control, Bomag offers Easy Level that clearly displays grade and slope settings on the large 7-inch display. Mill settings can be quickly changed with minimal navigation and limited submenus on the monitor. Variable milling speeds between three application-specific presets on the control panel allow the operator to tailor drum speed to the material to increase milling efficiency.
