Bomag reveals compact vibratory plate

Bomag has extended its light equipment range with the launch of the BR 95, a single direction vibratory plate for use on gravel, sand and mixed soils.
The square base plate with rounded corners (450 mm) makes the plate suitable in particular for repair and improvement work in earthworks and paving, said the manufacturer.
The machine is designed for working in confined spaces and it is able to compact right up to the edges. It has a working speed of 30 m/min, designed to maximise efficiency.
Depending on the material, the fill height in one pass is 25 cm. It comes with a lower amplitude than a tamper and a weight of 92 kg.
Mechanical vibrations have been minimised: in terms of hand-arm vibrations, the machine produces values of less than 2.5 m/s2.
This potentially allows operators to work with the Bomag BR 95 for up to eight hours, which also simplifies documentation requirements.
Its ultra-low centre of gravity makes the machine easy to steer and ensures it always has a secure footing, Bomag said.
