Bomag Vibratory Tampers Offer Power, Speed, Safety

Wed February 16, 2000 - Northeast Edition
Construction Equipment Guide

Power, speed and safety are key features of the Bomag BT50, BT60 and BT65 vibratory tampers.

With travel speeds of 19 to 20 meters per minute (62.3 to 65.6 fpm) and impact forces of 1,193 to 1,581 kilograms (2,630 to 3,485 lbs.), the new Bomag tampers offer increased productivity. The powerful, low-cost engine has no mechanical linkage, resulting in fewer parts and less down time.

Easy handling, reduced noise and a well-balanced design lead to increased operator comfort. Each model features Bomag’s anti-vibration handle, allowing for more comfortable and reduced health-risk operation during extended operating periods. The tamping foot’s high-strength polyethylene honeycomb construction absorbs shock, ensures stability and smooth operation.

The tampers’ well-balanced design, featuring unique engine mounting, as well as a low center of gravity, requires little effort for guiding. The durable, high-density plastic air filter cover is foam insulated, reducing dust intake and decreasing noise levels by up to six decibels.

Other standard equipment includes an externally-mounted electronic ignition system and a specially designed fuel tank. To reduce maintenance concerns, the corrosion-free leak and rustproof tank is equipped with built-in fuel filter and engine oil measuring and mixing thread on the cap, minimizing the potential for fuel contamination and inadequate oil mix.

Bomag tampers utilize an impulse style carburetor, rather than a float-bowl style carburetor, reducing wear and repair while virtually eliminating the chances of engine flooding. Commonality of parts between the three new models greatly reduces the cost of parts inventory.

The BT50, BT60 and BT65 are designed for the compaction of cohesive, semi-cohesive and granular soils. Ideal applications include highway patching, backfill around foundations and footings, reinstatement in trenching applications, as well as utility and cable backfill applications.

The standard operating width for the BT50 is 23 centimeters (9 in.), while the BT60 and BT65 have a 28-centimeter (11 in.) standard operating width. Four interchangeable shoe sizes of 15, 23, 28 and 33 centimeters (6, 9, 11 and 13 in.) and a 15-centimeter (6 in.) extension foot for utility work are available as optional equipment on all three models.
