BOMAG's new line of vibratory tampers includes a wider range of models that allows users to select a machine that best suits the requirements of a given job. The tampers combine low operating weights with increased compaction performance to optimize both productivity and ease of operation in applications such as trench construction, utility and cable backfill compaction, landscaping and small repair jobs.
The BT60 weighs 128 lbs. (58 kg) and delivers up to 3,372 lbs. of impact force, while the BT65 weighs 150 lbs. (68 kg) and produces 3,822 lbs. of impact force.
The BVT65 weighs 143 lbs. (65 kg) and delivers 3,597 lbs. of impact force. The BT60 is ideal for time-intensive use in confined spaces, the BT65 for jobs with the highest compaction demands, and the BVT65 for occasional use in typical applications. Each model is powered by an efficient 4-cycle Honda engine with recoil starter and offers a maximum travel speed of 66 ft. (20 m) per minute.
Built for demanding customer needs and long service life, the tampers include a cover and guards for all-around engine protection, dual air and fuel filter systems (single air filter for the BVT65), and an hour meter and tachometer with integrated service indicator (optional on BVT65). The units also feature a low oil alert system, easy access fuel and engine shutdown switch, and splash oil lubrication. A high-strength polyethylene tamping shoe with steel wear plate and a corrosion-free plastic fuel tank further contribute to enhanced durability.
