BOMAG BM 2200/65 Milling Machine

June 9, 2022

The BM 2200/65 BOMAG planer has a 58-inch milling radius. The milling machine's conveyor discharges at 16 feet with a slewing angle of 130 degrees—65 degrees in either direction. It retracts to 23.6 inches for transport. Operating weight for the BM 2200/65 half-lane planer is 60,296 pounds.

The 630-horsepower diesel engine matches power with milling speed. The slim profile of the BOMAG BMS15L quick-change cutting tooth holder system reduces resistance and delivers up to 20 percent fuel savings, according to the company. The milling machine has a range of drum designs and the choice of three different rotor speeds.

BOMAG Easy Cut technology automatically regulates the height of the rear drive of the cold planer, so the rear of the machine follows the front to its set depth. BOMAG Easy Level clearly displays grade and slope settings on the 7-inch display, and settings are quickly changed with minimal screen navigation.

The vibration-isolated operator’s station delivers comfortable operation from either a seated or standing position, according to the company, with additional cushioning at the platform’s standing areas. Stepless platform side-shift up to 7.8 inches enhances visibility to the right cutting edge and side plate.

The standard water spray and dust extraction systems, complete with conveyor shrouding, remove fine particulate matter. Optional Ion Dust Shield removes up to 80 percent more fine dust particles smaller than 10 microns in size, according to the company.

All key machine service points are easily accessible, according to the company, and all filters can be reached from the operator’s platform through the engine hood. Large left- and right-hand service panels provide accessibility to the machine’s auxiliary drive and milling gear, and engine service points are accessed from both above and below.
