BOMAG BMP 8500 Radio Controlled Trench Roller

Item # BMP 8500 Category
  • Superior Compaction:  With an operating weight of around 1.6 tons, this multi-purpose compactor achieves outstanding compaction results on soil compaction in trenches, sewers and on pipeline construction.
  • Reliable Radio Control:  With radio/cable remote control, problems caused by intense sunlight, shoring work, or the simultaneous use of other machines are eliminated. Frequency adjustments and malfunctions due to mechanical wear no longer apply.
  • Earthwork Revolution:  The first remote-controlled, multipurpose compactor that knows when it’s finished. With ECONOMIZER, the operator knows when optimum compaction has been achieved.
  • Safe Response:  If the operator enters into the close vicinity of the machine, the travel system is automatically stopped by BOSS (BOMAG Operator Safety System) to prevent accidents. Nothing could be safer.
  • Quickly Extended: Reliability from experience: the original BOMAG drum extender allows you to adapt the working width from 24 to 34 inch in just minutes.
