Bomag’s new generation of compact single drum vibratory roller series are able to climb grades up to 55 per cent.
The BW 124-5 vibratory roller is available in both smooth (BW 124 DH-5) and padfoot (BW 124 PDH-5) drum configurations.
With their 120-cm drum width and tight turning radius of 224 cm, these new compact single drum rollers are ideal for granular and cohesive soil compaction on congested jobsite applications such as backfill, landscaping, trench work or pipeline construction.
According to Bomag, the machines are the only single drum rollers in the weight class to feature dual pump drive, which allows them to climb grades up to 55 per cent.
The intuitive Bomag Economizer compaction measurement system — now available for the BW 124-5 series vibratory roller — offers a higher level of compaction control that was not available on prior models.
The Economizer alerts operators of soil compaction progress, reducing passes and saving time and money. It requires no calibration to deliver real-time compaction progress.

As the degree of compaction increases, more LED lights on the Economizer light strip illuminate and indicate when optimum compaction is achieved. The system also warns operators of potential over-compaction. As well, it identifies soft spots in the material.
A new-style ROPS/FOPS structure advances safe operation of the BW 124-5 series roller. The new four-post structure safeguards the operator from machine roll-over and falling objects. The new design enhances the operator’s 360-degree view around the machine.
A new, simplified method for controlling the optional levelling blade replaces the previous foot pedal with a multifunctional travel lever at the operator’s fingertips for blade movements.
The blade features standard up and down function with available float position or tilt function.
The flexible blade options expand the range of applications for the BW 124-5 series roller to include material distribution, profiling and levelling, all commonplace in construction and landscaping applications.
