Bomag introduces the BF 200 paver to North America

BF 200

Bomag’s BF 200 cart path and small construction site paver is now available in North America. 

At 6,000 kg operating weight and 130 cm transport width, the paver can be transported to jobsites on a trailer. As well, the paver’s narrow 112 cm track width fits in the cut of a 1.2-metre cold planer to boost efficiency of mill-and-fill applications.  

The BF 200’s hydraulically extendable electric screed offers base paving widths ranging from 1.1 metres to 2 metres. Manual screed extensions feature quick coupling technology with a locking wedge-and-socket design to quickly extend paving widths to 3.4 metres.

Available reduction skids also allow contractors to pave as narrow as 41 cm wide, significantly increasing the paver’s flexibility. 

MagmaLife

The BF 200 paver includes Bomag’s patented MagmaLife technology, which heats the screed up to paving temperatures in about 20 minutes. This exclusive Bomag MagmaLife design casts heating elements into a single aluminum block for superior thermal conductivity.

In addition to quick heating, MagmaLife delivers higher uptime and more uniform heat distribution throughout the screed bottom for a tight mat texture without scuffing or tearing. 

A two-level operator platform design provides the best view to both the hopper and paver sides without compromise. Offering single-operator capability, the Bomag BF 200 paver helps to lower labour costs as well as long-term operating costs. Equipped with an automatic steering radius system, the paver matches and holds cart path radius, while allowing the operator to focus on other paving functions.   

While compact in size, the machine’s 4.5-tonne hopper capacity provides extended paving intervals between loads. 

As well, optional hydraulically unfolding hopper wings deliver convenient loading with an end loader. 

More news from Bomag:

Alternatively, for mill-and-fill paving, the BF 200 hopper’s 3 metre width easily accommodates truck loading, while the paver offers the traction and power required to push the truck. 

Powered by a fuel-efficient 74-hp diesel engine, the new BF 200 paver requires no diesel particulate filter (DPF) or diesel exhaust fluid (DEF) aftertreatment to meet Tier 4 Final (Stage V) emissions regulations. 

Bomag Ecomode active engine and hydraulics management system reduces fuel consumption by up to 20 per cent standard mode operation. 

By delivering fast screed heat-ups, MagmaLife further lowers fuel consumption to reduce the paver’s total cost of ownership.
