Bomag’s BW141AD-5 and BW151AD-5 tandem vibratory rollers feature a frame design for clear visibility and Tier IV engines for increased fuel efficiency. The new rollers provide high VPM performance on a variety of asphalt compaction jobs, ranging from commercial sites and parking lots to highways.

A newly designed operator’s platform features a spacious working area that provides ample room and comfort, while still offering optimal all-around views of the roller drums, asphalt mat and surrounding areas. The station’s adjustable, multi-position seat rotates and slides laterally to both side positions, and a travel lever with integrated switches, the steering wheel, and other operating controls are arranged logically and within easy reach.

The new rollers are each powered by Tier IV compliant, 73.2-hp (54.5 kW) Kubota water-cooled diesel engines. Offering 59 and 66-in. (150 and 167 cm) working widths, respectively, the BW141AD-5 and BW151AD-5 each deliver up to 17,760 lbs. of centrifugal force. The rollers feature ECOMODE, a system that aids the operator in conserving fuel by controlling the engine speed in relation to load, reducing fuel consumption by up to 30-percent, according to the manufacturer.

The intelligent design of the rollers also features innovative component placement, such as a large water tank below the operator’s station and the engine located in the rear frame, contributing to high maneuverability and reduced noise during operation. A pressurized water spray system includes a second pump and triple filters to ensure reliable drum sprinkling. The large engine hood provides easy access from either side of the machine.

A crab-steer feature allows operators to offset the rear drum of the rollers up to 6.7 in. (17 cm) in either direction. Other standard features include automatic vibration control, speedometer, V-belt protection, halogen working lights, indicator and hazard lights, back-up alarm, master battery disconnect switch, and tool compartments.

Optional features include a mat temperature display, ROPS cabin with heating or air conditioning, Bomag Telematics, drum edge lighting and integrated edge cutter for the rear drum.
