Bomag Offers BC472RB Refuse Compactor for Small Landfill Operations
KEWANEE, Ill. – The new BC472RB refuse compactor from BOMAG offers the performance and durability of the company’s larger machines, but in a more compact package. Ideal for smaller landfills, the 52,900-pound compactor offers a sealed frame design, outstanding operator comfort, easy maintenance access and superior compaction capabilities.
Featuring BOMAG’s exclusive PAKALL wheel design, the BC472RB utilizes polygonal compaction rings. The front wheel contains 50 teeth, and the rear wheel has 40. The machine eliminates air voids by shredding and crushing waste, allowing landfill operators to achieve greater density, preserve valuable airspace and extend the lifespan of their landfills.
The BC472RB comes with a hydrostatic drive system for superior control and traction. Powered by a 255-horsepower Deutz water-cooled diesel engine, the hydrostatic drive efficiently transfers power and torque to the wheels, providing high pushing power while consuming low amounts of fuel.
Like the larger compactors in the BOMAG line, the BC472RB features a sealed frame and hubs, which protect major drive components and prevent debris from entering the engine compartment. The compactor has 23.6 inches of ground clearance and an articulating/oscillating center joint, helping to maintain greater wheel contact, control and maneuverability. Adjustable scraper bars and wire cutters keep the wheels free of debris to maintain traction and allow maximum tooth penetration.
In addition to offering superior compaction to extend landfill lifespan, the BC472RB also reduces maintenance costs and labor. A central lubrication system automatically greases all major joints, eliminating the need for regular manual greasing. The vertically opening hood and lower access door provide complete access to all engine maintenance points.
Operator comfort and ergonomics are also enhanced with the BC472RB. Joystick controls allow the operator to drive the machine from a natural position, thereby reducing fatigue, and cab noise is minimized for a quiet operating environment.
Other standard equipment includes a sound-suppression cab with heating and air conditioning, vibration isolation and AM/FM CD radio; front and rear working lights; comfort seat; windscreen wipers and washers; back-up alarm; warning horn; seat belts; and a master battery disconnect switch. Optional equipment includes a hydraulic oil temperature gauge, decelerator pedal, cab protection grids, service platforms, a rotary beacon, special paint, charcoal cab filtration and an 11.8-foot refuse blade.
