BOMAG has a new top-of-the-range stabiliser in the shape of its RS650 model. The firm also has a new designation for its recycler stabilisers and instead of the MPH models, these are now the RS machines. Power for the new RS650 comes from a diesel delivering 485kW and the model is said to offer a productivity increase of 10% over the earlier model. Designed for large scale recycling operations, BOMAG believes the machine will suit customers carrying out medium-large scale projects in the Middle East, Africa, North America and Latin America.
Low emissions are claimed due to the double-SCR system, which allows the machine to meet Tier 4 Final requirements. However other installations will be available for customers in countries where low sulphur fuel is not available.
According to the firm, the machine offers a good all-round view as it has a centrally-mounted operator position with large glass areas for the gap.
In addition to the more powerful diesel, the travel system, electrics and assistance systems have been upgraded. Another new feature is the four camera system, which allows an excellent all-round view up to the milled edges, while the eight LED lights and two working head lights provide good visibility at night.
The RS 650 can be set to cut widths of 2.4m and 2.6m and to depths of 600mm. The machine is designed to mix soil with water, bitumen emulsion, foamed bitumen or cement slurry. In addition, the machine has BOMAG’s novel Flexmix technology, which allows infinitely variable crushing of materials.
