BOMAG’s BF 200 Paver
To handle commercial projects such as parking lots, cart paths, sidewalks, and the like, contractors often turn to a compact paver to get the job done. The team at BOMAG Americas, Ridgeway, South Carolina, demonstrated its new BF 200 cart path and small construction site paver with 44-inch track width during its Innovation Days in 2019 for such projects. Here’s how it works.
First, the paving crew brings the 13,228-pound machine with its 51-inch transport width to the site by trailer. The MAGMALIFE heating system heats the screed, which has a basic extended width of 79 inches, to required paving temperatures in about 20 minutes, according to the manufacturer. The hopper, which has a 5-ton capacity, accepts mix from haul trucks—the wings open to 118 inches and the filling height is 17 inches in the middle.
Material moves along the conveyor to two 12-inch augers at the head of material.
The single-operator platform has two platforms to offer views to both the hopper and paver sides. Equipped with an automatic steering radius system, the paver matches and holds cart path radius, while allowing the operator to focus on other paving functions.
The 74-hp Kubota diesel engine requires no diesel particulate filter (DPF) or diesel exhaust fluid (DEF) aftertreatment to meet Tier 4 Final (Stage V) emissions regulations, according to the manufacturer, and the BOMAG ECOMODE active engine and hydraulics management system reduces fuel consumption by up to 20 percent standard mode operation.
