Two pneumatic-tire compactors, the 99-hp BW24RH and the 131-hp BW27RH, replace model BW24R. They feature hydrostatic drive and two-point pivot steering, providing seamless speeds up to 12 mph. Pivot-steer provides "sequenced" steering, allowing inside and outside tire pairs to turn at different rates for protecting the mat. The BW24RH's fully ballasted operating weight is 52,911 pounds; the BW27RH is 59,525 pounds.
