The first rollers were related to agriculture, making laborious and difficult farm work easier and faster. Steam powered machines eventually replaced these early versions, and were used throughout the UK. In the late 1970’s petrol and diesel arrived, and are still the popular fuel choices. After extensive research, the team here at Rhinos Plant Hire decided to add BOMAG rollers to our fleet. Reputable and reliable, these manufacturers have proved their worth time and again. We know the importance of reliability, especially where builders and construction companies are trying to make a name for themselves in a very competitive market.
BOMAG have a keen awareness of the high standards their machines must meet, and have continued to come up with the goods!
BOMAG have produced many innovations over the years, such as the double vibratory roller with all-drum drive. This was followed by the 7 tonne double vibratory roller and many more outstanding machines. Their rollers are to be found across a wide range of applications from preparation for a new home driveway, to major road surfacing and infrastructure work. You will commonly see BOMAG rollers carrying out compaction work at embankments, railways, pavements etc. The smaller or manual varieties are also a favourite for gardening and landscaping projects.
Their role is often a very important one, for instance in the case of preparation of foundations for new structures. There is no margin for error here, as a solid, firm base is essential before building can start. Any pockets of air that are allowed to form, could cause devastating problems down the line.
Bomag, as with many other responsibly minded companies, constantly strive to improve the sustainability of their products. Their machines are cleaner, quieter and more energy efficient than ever before. Fuel-efficient drive systems ensure that their products are environmentally friendly. That’s not all, Bomag have two impressive technology packages, namely ECOMODE and ECOSTOP, which will save thousands of litres of fuel per year.
ECOMODE is an intelligent and efficient system that guarantees motors are operating in their optimum range. Engine speeds which are lower, lessen fuel consumption by approximately 30%, without compromised performance. Less wear and tear on drive components is another result, meaning an extended product life. Rollers have in the past run at their maximum speed to enable adequate vibration frequency. This smart system cuts out the need for this excess activity.
With the ECOSTOP system, the engine is automatically shut down after a certain amount of time in idle speed. This saves fuel, and again ensures healthy drive components. Low noise levels are another advantage of BOMAG rollers, benefiting drivers, operators, workers and local residents.
