eDaily: Bomag Soil Compactor

September 28, 2010

Model BC462EB soil compactor features four-wheel hydrostatic drive and 255-horsepower Deutz diesel engine. Its sealed frame design keeps jobsite materials from entering the frame or engine compartment and protects drive-train components. The machine also comes equipped with a scraper bar system designed to keep the wheels free from dirt. Bomag says unlike its full line of single-drum vibratory rollers, the BC462EB achieves superior compaction through sheer weight (51,000 pounds), the wheel design, and impact force of the teeth.
