Combining single-drum roller innovations with proven design features from its line of refuse compactors, Bomag offers its BC462EB soil compactor. Powered by a 255-hp (190 kW) Deutz diesel engine and four-wheel hydrostatic drive, the BC462EB provides power, gradeability and traction to push, spread and compact soil for highways, bridges, dams and other medium- to large-scale dirt projects, according to the manufacturer.
Weighing 51,000 lbs. (23,133 kg), the BC462EB achieves compaction through a combination of sheer weight, wheel design, and the impact force of the teeth. To maintain the highest level of compaction performance, an oscillating center articulation joint ensures constant ground contact by all four wheels, while adjustable scraper bars keep wheels free of dirt.
The soil compactor features a sealed frame design to protect drive train components and keep debris from entering the frame or engine compartments. Additionally, a vertically opening hood provides easy access to components to simplify maintenance tasks. Available options include a dozer blade and central lubrication system.
An ergonomic, vibration-isolated operator station on the BC462EB allows enhanced visibility around the machine. Integrated armrest controls allow for additional operator comfort. An optional cab includes heat and air conditioning, noise insulation, safety glass, CD/radio and working lights.
