Featuring a centrally mounted cutting drum that allows precise milling near walls, curbs and other obstructions, Bomag's BM1200/30-2 cold planer milling machine is ideally suited for shoulder repair, utility and general surface milling applications.

The BM1200/30-2 offers a standard cutting width of 47.2 in. (120 cm) Powered by a 275-hp (205 kW) Caterpillar diesel engine, the machine offers a high horsepower-per-cutting-tooth delivery ratio for maximum efficiency and productivity. Additionally, the direct mechanical drive design of the cutting drum provides maximum power transfer while reducing any external losses. The unit is capable of milling depths up to 12.6 in. (32 cm).

The BM1200/30-2's centrally mounted cutting drum eliminates the need to move the right rear track away from the cut line, providing the machine with improved overall balance. Compared with other units, the BM1200/30-2's cutting drum makes it possible to use a much shorter take-off belt, resulting in lower maintenance costs and more uptime, according to the manufacturer.

Featuring a centrally located “over-the-cut” operator's position, the BM1200/30-2 offers increased job site visibility. Furthermore, the operator's seat can slide out over the right edge of the machine, offering added visibility of the cutting drum's leading edge and the line or curb to be followed during the cut. User-friendly controls make the mill easy to operate either via the operator's station or from ground level with remote-mount controls.


The front-loading conveyor swings 36 degrees to the right or left of center for ease of loading, and folds for simple transport to and from the job site. With the conveyor folded, the unit can be hauled using any standard configuration, 25-ton (22.6 t) capacity single-drop or ramped trailer.

Four-track stability with standard polyurethane wear pads and independent or coordinated front and rear steering provide optimum travel performance. For fast, on-the-job site maintenance, the BM1200/30-2 features quick-change cutting teeth and holders.

Optional equipment includes water fill and high-pressure wash-down systems, an electrical diesel pump for refueling, a compressed air system, and a hydraulically folding operator's station canopy complete with front and rear windscreens.
