The BOMAG BVP 12/50 A single direction vibratory plate compactor is designed and equipped for asphalt compaction for repair, maintenance, and paving applications, expanding the machine’s use beyond traditional soil compaction. This asphalt specialist features a cast iron base plate specifically designed to avoid asphalt material pushing, shoving, and scuffing.
With its base machine weight of less than 150 lbs. and balanced single lifting point, the compactor is easily moved around the jobsite and quickly loaded and unloaded from the transport vehicle. The compactor’s standard sprinkler system with removable 1.8-gallon water tank prevents asphalt material from sticking to the base plate.
The compactor’s base plate offers more than 400 square inches of coverage. It offers a working speed of up to 82 feet per minute, amplitude of 0.043 inches, and centrifugal force of 2,698 lbs. to deeply penetrate asphalt and granular materials and quickly meet specified densities.
The compactor is powered by the 3.5-hp Honda GX120 gas engine meeting CARB Phase III emission standards. The engine’s fuel efficient design plus 0.5-gallon fuel tank delivers up to 2.5 hours of uninterrupted operation. Rubber buffer mounting of the 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.
