While developing these machines, Bomag worked closely with some key customers and one target of the design process was to minimise down-time that impacts on milling and can affect a contractor’s cost-effectiveness. High priority was in maximising the cutting tool life, while minimising tool replacement effort. Bomag developed its innovative BMS 15 interchangeable holder system which features a single bolt for holder retention and requires a low tightening torque. In addition the low front face position increases efficiency and overall milling power while allowing full tooth rotation. A special tempered steel material offers a significantly longer service life versus conventional cutting systems and also provides Bomag’s traditional premium quality.
Operators also requested ease of operation and the -35 models have logical operating layouts and a vibration isolated operator's stand.
