Featuring a compact, highly maneuverable design, the new 60,296-lb. (27,350-kg) half-lane mill BOMAG BM 2200/65 large planer has a modest, 58” (11,473-mm) milling radius, which assists with tight-radius applications like small roundabouts and cul-de-sacs.

Its conveyor offers a 16-foot (4,880-mm) discharge height plus a 130-degree conveyor slewing angle (65˚ to the left and right of centre) allowing material to be efficiently discharged into trucks on both sides of the mill. To facilitate transport, the conveyor retracts to a length 23.6” (600 mm), which is shorter than the company’s previous designs.

Meeting Tier 4 Final/Stage V emissions standards, the mill’s 630 hp (470 kW) engine effectively matches power with milling speed for greater operating efficiency. The slim profile of the advanced BOMAG BMS15L quick-change cutting tooth holder system reduces resistance and is designed to deliver fuel savings.

Offering a range of milling drum designs and the choice of three different rotor speeds to tailor rotor speed to the job, the planer can be used on a wide range of asphalt and concrete milling applications.

To simplify milling control, the company’s Easy Cut technology automatically regulates the height of the rear drive, so the rear of the machine follows the front to its set depth. BOMAG Easy Level clearly displays grade and slope settings on a seven-inch display. Settings can be quickly changed with minimal screen navigation.
