The new BW213-40 Series 13-ton single-drum vibratory rollers from BOMAG include the BW213D-40 and BW213DH-40 smooth drum rollers and the BW213PDH-40 padfoot roller.
The BW213D-40 and BW213DH-40, powered by 160-hp Cummins diesel engines, are designed for compaction of granular and mixed soils, while the BW213PDH-40, powered by a 133-hp Deutz water-cooled diesel engine, is designed for cohesive and semi-cohesive soils. All three units are ideal for a variety of site preparation applications, including highway construction and maintenance, airports, streets and subdivisions, parking lots and landfills.
Dual vibration frequencies and amplitudes allow rollers to be customized for different jobsite requirements. All three models deliver frequencies of 1,800 and 2,160 vibrations per minute, while each generates 61,825 lb of centrifugal force in high amplitude and 44,550 lb in low amplitude.
New features on the BW213-40 Series increase operator comfort and jobsite safety. Engineers improved the line of sight to the rear of each model, ensuring better all-around visibility for maximum safety. The comfortable design of the vibration-isolated operator platform is enhanced with an ergonomically repositioned steering wheel. An optional swivel seat and a heated and air-conditioned cab also are available.
Anti-Slip Control systems on the BW213DH-40 and BW213PDH-40 models monitor slip potential between the drum and rear tires to maximize traction and gradeability. As a result, the BW213DH-40 and BW213PDH-40 offer maximum gradeability of 55% with and without vibration. In addition, all three models feature a no-spin differential on rear axles for improved traction.
