Total performance in the 44 to 56 ton class: The BOMAG BC973/1173 RB-5 Compactors.

BOMAG refuse compactors of the 44 to 56 t class embody a multitude of design benefits, which result from decades of experience in landfill sites. These are combined with BOMAG’s philosophy of uncompromising quality to meet the challenges of modern landfill sites. The result is a compactor of outstanding effectiveness that uses state-of-the-art technology to deliver higher productivity with low operating costs and excellent serviceability.

Optimum compaction results from even distribution of the material – something you can always rely on with BOMAG. And compaction significantly influences the lifetime of a landfill site. With the high investment required in modern landfill sites, every additional cubic meter gained is money earned. BOMAG achieves ultimate compaction through a combination of its wheel geometry, scrapers, and uniform ground contact. The weight of the machine further enhances compaction results.

To ensure even distribution of material, operators need precision handling, high pushing power and good traction. These features come as standard on all BOMAG refuse compactors. The joystick is simple and effortless to use, offering excellent operational accuracy. The smooth hydrostatic drive converts the power of the water-cooled turbo diesel engine into high drive power. The load limit control automatically adjusts the travel speed to the load for optimum utilisation of the available power. A unique feature is the oscillating articulated joint, designed for the toughest loads and stresses of landfill operation. The joint has 15° oscillation and 40° steering to either side between the front and rear frames. As a result, all wheels maintain ground contact enabling optimum traction and compaction.
