That Old Bomag Roller Work? If So, Europe Awaits You

September 28, 2010

Operating an old roller can actually pave the way to an exciting new experience for a lucky contractor.

In celebration of Bomag's 50th anniversary last year, Bomag Americas has launched the “Rollin' with the Oldies” contest in search of the oldest operating Bomag roller in North America today. The owner of the vintage compactor will win a trip for two to Bomag's world headquarters in scenic Boppard, Germany.

The winning machine must be in operating condition, and only ride-on single- or tandem-drum rollers are eligible. The manufacturer's original name or nameplate must be adhered to the machine and must be visible and legible. In addition, the serial number and model number must be original and legible.

The contest runs through Sept. 30, 2008, and is open to all contractors in the United States and Canada. Contractors can enter by visiting their Bomag distributor or by going online to

Every contractor who enters will receive a free gift. Photos of entrants and their machines will be posted on the contest website.
