The new, compact BOMAG BW 120 AD e-5 electric tandem roller introduces sustainable, low-noise and zero-emissions operation to the 2.5-ton class commercial roller market. With its 47.2-in (1.200-mm) rolling width, this powerful all-arounder makes short work of parking lot, driveway, asphalt repair and soil compaction work. Impressively quiet, the new BOMAG roller is perfect for compacting in noise-sensitive areas such as nighttime jobs, inner city work and compacting around hospitals.
The new BW 120 AD e-5 features a low-voltage, 48V system with long-lasting 25 kWh Li-Ion batteries. The system requires no special safety precautions for maintenance, and the batteries offer plenty of capacity for a typical day’s work before recharging. With its recuperative system, valuable energy is recovered during braking, converting mechanical energy back into electrical. The roller offers flexible plug and charging options to meet the customer’s needs.
The new tandem roller’s efficient e-PERFORMANCE system is equipped with two electric motors – one dedicated to travel and the other for steering and vibration. A 26.8-hp (19,7 kW) electric motor propels the front and rear driven drums at working speeds of 0-3.1 mph (5,0 kmph) and travel speeds reaching 6.2 mph (10 kmph). When traveling, the roller only uses one motor to conserve energy consumption. The roller’s unique ECO function helps to further save battery power.
