BOMAG’s newest product is also its smallest and lightest. The new BVP 10/30 single-direction plate, which will be available from January 2017, will be officially launched in the UK at EHS in February.
It was a challenge for its designers to meet the tough brief set by management.
Weighing in at just 47kg, the lowest in its class, the new BVP 10/30 also has the lowest hand/arm vibration level (HAV), below 2.5m/s2, of any comparable plate making it the perfect solution for end users undertaking small jobs in house building, civils, landscaping and the utilities.
A new powerful exciter system operating at 100Hz, with an amplitude of 1.34mm produces 10Kn of centrifugal force, matching any other plate in the same class.
Designed for the rigours of the hire industry the new plate is tough despite its light weight with a cast steel, highly wear resistant, base plate. Powered by a reliable and economic 2.1kW Honda petrol engine the BVP 10/30 is protected against damage with an automatic ‘low-oil-level’ shutdown device.
User ergonomics are excellent. The light, well balanced machine has a single lifting point, integral lifting handles for a 2-man lift and a fully protected V-belt drive.
