BW900-2The 1-ton BW900-2 tandem-drum roller uses a series-type hydrostatic propel system that provides enhanced performance on grades. A replacement for the BW900, the new machine features 24-inch-diameter drums, and its front vibrating drum produces 3,150 pounds of centrifugal force. When working on thicker lifts, the BW900-2 can be ballasted to 1.5 tons. Minimal lateral overhang on both sides of the machine allows working close to curbs and walls.
