Bomag Releases BOMAG BM 2200/65 Large Planer
BY AsphaltPro Staff
Bomag, Ridgeway, South Carolina, has released the BOMAG BM 2200/65 large planer, weighing in at 60,296 pounds for half-lane milling. It has a 58-inch milling radius. Its conveyor offers a 16-foot discharge height plus larger, 130˚ conveyor slewing angle—65˚ to the left/right of center—allowing material to be discharged into trucks on both sides of the mill. To facilitate transport, the conveyor retracts to a length 23.6 inches shorter than previous designs. The mill’s 630-horsepower engine meets Tier 4 Final/Stage V emissions standards, according to the manufacturer.
The slim profile of the BOMAG BMS15L quick-change cutting tooth holder system is designed to reduce resistance and deliver up to 20% fuel savings. The BM 2200/65 planer offers a range of milling drum designs and the choice of three different rotor speeds to tailor rotor speed to a range of asphalt and concrete milling jobs. The manufacturer states: “To simplify milling control, BOMAG Easy Cut technology automatically regulates the height of the rear drive, so the rear of the machine follows the front to its set depth, making the operator’s work simpler. BOMAG Easy Level clearly displays grade and slope settings on the large 7-inch display, and settings are quickly changed with minimal screen navigation.”
The standard water spray and dust extraction systems, complete with conveyor shrouding, remove fine particulate matter from the machine. Removing up to 80% more fine dust particles smaller than 10 microns in size, the optional Bomag Ion Dust Shield—described in the July 2021 issue—is a pioneering technology designed to meet stringent fine dust regulations.
