Roller’s first appeared on the scene as horse drawn farm equipment, speeding up and taking the slog out of agricultural work. These early versions were eventually replaced by steam powered machines. Steam rollers were widely used in the UK up until the late 1970’s, when petrol and diesel became the fuel of choice. BOMAG is a major manufacturer of rollers, and the brand of choice for Rhinos. Reliability is a priority with our hire machinery, as many reputations are at stake.
BOMAG have constantly developed their roller technology, achieving the ground breaking products we see today. During their long and impressive history,they have produced innovations like the double vibratory roller with all-drum drive. Then came the 7 tonne double vibratory roller and many other subsequent options.
Whatever you need for your compaction project, we are sure to have the perfect solution, be it a small or large job. You have a choice of manually pushed or driven rollers, like for instance our 80 and 120 tandem rollers. With dual drum vibration, they come in a variety of sizes and weights, all sure to pack a punch. Rollers from BOMAG are frequently found at major construction sites, and where there is ongoing infrastructure work on pavements, roads, embankments or railways. Gardening or landscaping tasks can be carried out hassle free, where they would take time and effort without this type of equipment.
Preparation of building foundations is also one of the important tasks for rollers, as a solid and uncompromising base is needed. If small pockets of air are allowed to form, they can cause significant problems later when buildings are finished.
Like most forward thinking companies, Bomag have been actively improving the sustainability of their products. They are producing machines which are cleaner and quieter. Fuel-efficient drive systems are also featured, making their products even more environmentally friendly. Bomag have two major technology packages, namely ECOMODE and ECOSTOP, intended to save thousands of litres of fuel annually.
The efficient and intelligent ECOMODE system guarantees that motors are operating in the optimum range. Lower engine speed lessens fuel consumption by around 30%, without loss of performance. It also enables less wear and tear on drive components making for an extended product life. In the past, rollers have typically run at their maximum speed for adequate vibration frequency. This excess activity is avoided with this smart system.
The ECOSTOP system automatically shuts down the engine after a certain amount of time in idle speed, saving fuel, and again ensuring healthy drive components. Bomag machines also produce low noise levels, advantageous for drivers, operators, nearby workers and local residents.
Whatever the task, terrain or conditions, we have a roller to suit you, BOMAG are leaders in roller design and precision engineering. Our trench compactors work extremely well in confined or awkward spaces, and you have ultimate control as they can be operated remotely. They are practical and functional in all weathers, and operate in widths between 610mm and 850mm.
