BOMAG single direction vibratory plate compactors are a contractor’s indispensable tools for day to day use in soil and asphalt repair and maintenance compaction applications. Weighing just over 100-pounds, the new BOMAG BVP 10/30 compactor is the lightest single direction vibratory plate in its class and features a balanced lifting point, so it can be quickly loaded and unloaded from the transport vehicle without any support equipment.
While small in size, the new BVP 10/30 vibratory plate delivers on compaction performance. This flexible walk behind compactor boasts a compact design with its 11.8 x 20-inch plate width and length, making it perfect for compacting confined spaces and into corners. The productive machine generates 2,250-pound centrifugal force at working speeds reaching 82-feet per minute, making it the right plate for landscaping and earthworks contractors, building contractors and maintenance crews. By equipping the plate with its optional vulcolan mat, the BVP 10/30 is the compactor of choice for setting paving stones.
The new vibratory plate incorporates many field proven BOMAG design features that deliver reliable operation to reduce long term operating costs. Rubber buffer mounting of the 2.8 hp Honda gas engine minimizes damaging vibration feedback to the engine to maximize service life, while the low oil alert feature automatically turns off the engine before major component damage can occur. Built tough, the BVP 10/30 features a maintenance free exciter to reduce service time. The machine’s enclosed V-belt guard keeps material from entering the chamber for a longer service life with fewer repairs.
Several features of the new BVP 10/30 plate compactor serve to enhance safe machine operation. Its hinged handle features rubber mounts to effectively minimize vibration transmitted back to the operator’s hands and arms for more comfortable operation. The V-belt guard fully encloses the belt’s movement to protect the operator from injury. Compactor lifting handles help to advance safe loading and unloading from the transport vehicle.
The new BOMAG BVP 10/30 single direction vibratory plate compactor was among the many equipment innovations contractors experienced during CONEXPO-CON/AGG 2017.
