Bomag has launched the BF 200 cart path and small construction site paver.

Available for the first time in North America, the paver is designed to increase paving efficiency and quality on cart paths and small construction sites.

It has an operating weight of 13,228 pounds (6,000 kilograms) and a 51 inch (1,295 mm) transport width. The paver’s narrow 44-inch (1,118-mm) track width fits in the cut of a 4-foot (1.2-metre) cold planer to boost efficiency of mill-and-fill applications.

It features a hydraulically extendible electric screed and manual screed extensions with a locking wedge-and-socket design to extend paving widths to 11.2 feet (3.4 metres). Available reduction skids also allow contractors to pave as narrow as 1.3-feet (0.41-metres) wide, significantly increasing the paver’s flexibility.

A two-level operator platform design provides the best view to both the hopper and paver sides without compromise. Offering single-operator capability, this new Bomag paver helps to lower labour costs as well as long-term operating costs. Equipped with an automatic steering radius system, the paver matches and holds cart path radius, while conveniently allowing the operator to focus on other paving functions.

The machine’s large 5-ton (4.5-tonne) hopper capacity provides extended paving intervals between loads. Optional hydraulically unfolding hopper wings deliver convenient loading with an end loader. Alternatively, for mill-and-fill paving, the hopper’s 118-inch (3,000-mm) width easily accommodates truck loading, while the paver offers the traction and power required to push the truck.
