The newest and largest addition to the Bomag line of walk-behind reversible plate compactors, the BPR100/80D comes standard with Bomag’s exclusive Economizer system, which helps the operator achieve optimum compaction by avoiding over-compaction and identifying and eliminating soft spots. By detecting soil stiffness, the Economizer provides an accurate overview of soil compaction status and, says the company, allows jobs to be completed with up to 25 percent fewer passes. Powered by a 14.75-horsepower Hatz air-cooled diesel engine, the BPR100/80D generates a maximum working speed of 88.6 feet per minute and gradeability of 35 percent. Maximum frequency is 3,360 vibrations per minute and centrifugal force is 22,500 pounds.
