Sustainable Operation Meets Performance in the New BOMAG BT 60 E ePERFORMANCE Tamper

March 8, 2023

The new BOMAG BT 60 e battery-powered tamper gives customers the best of both worlds – emissions-free operation and uncompromising performance similar to its fuel-powered counterpart. In its element where strict noise and CO2/NOx emissions limits are set, this go-anywhere tamper can be safely used in applications such as deep trenches, enclosed structures and tunnels.

With its rugged, future-proof design, BOMAG’s battery-powered BT 60 e tamper starts reliably in all weather conditions, simply at the touch of a button. It’s powered by a brushless, asynchronous 3.1-hp (2,3 kW) electric motor that requires no maintenance. The tamper’s rugged casing fully protects the motor from shocks, dirt and damage at the jobsite for reliable operation. Eliminating the need for oil and filter changes, service costs for the battery-electric tamper are nearly cut in half compared to the fuel model, resulting in extremely low owning and operating costs.

Two battery sizes are available to operate the BT 60 e tamper – 1,000 Wh or 1,400 Wh – and are interchangeable with BOMAG’s battery-powered plate compactors to increase flexibility. The powerpacks are quickly and conveniently swapped out at the release of a lever without the need for a tool. Standard and fast chargers are available for the batteries, and the quick-charge capabilities enable a discharged battery to be ready for use in less than 2 hours.

On top of the advantages of low-cost, emissions-free operation, the new BT 60 e delivers the same compaction power as the conventional tamper. It features 696 vpm (11,6 Hz) compaction frequency, a jumping height of 2.8 in (70 mm) and impact force of 3,372 lbf (15 kN). Offering a working width of 9.1 in (230 mm), it compacts at speeds reaching 65.6 ft/min (20 m/min).

BOMAG’s new BT 60 e tamper will make its North American tradeshow debut at CONEXPO-CON/AGG 2023 in Las Vegas from March 14-18. Show attendees are invited to visit BOMAG’s Central Hall exhibit #C30221 to learn more about the new ePERFORMANCE tamper and how the company is Building Better Roads.
