Bomag expanded its cold milling product range by offering the new rear rotor design BM-35 Series. Advances in operator comfort and precision controls set the standard for these rear rotor mills, and an innovative exclusive cutter system delivers first rate milling performance, according to the manufacturer.

This is the second generation of Bomag’s milling models. Its prior BM 500/600 series gave contractors increased comfort levels and quick change rotors. Now this next generation of commercial mills has arrived with three new models: The BM1000/35, BM1200/35, and BM1300/35.

Bomag worked with experienced operators throughout the -35 design conception. A goal was set to eradicate time-wasting factors, which disrupt the milling process and that ultimately cost contractors time and money. Highest priority was given to maximizing the cutting tool life, while minimizing tool replacement labor to support an efficient and productive job site. Bomag developed its BMS 15 interchangeable holder system to accomplish these requirements.

This new cutting system utilizes a single bolt for holder retention and requires a low tightening torque of 75 ft. lb. Additionally, the low front face position increases efficiency and therefore overall milling power, while allowing desirable full tooth rotation. A special tempered steel material offers a significantly longer service life versus conventional cutting systems.

Operators also called for simplicity and ease of operation.


The -35 models incorporate a logical operating layout, easy intuitive controls and low noise levels. The vibration isolated operator’s stand features a comfortable swivel seat design, which allows all work to be done while seated. The control ergonomics are complemented by straightforward switches, levers and clear read-out displays.

Both the BM600/15 and BM1000/35 models will be on display at the 2014 ConExpo show.
