Bomag has launched the new BF 200 cart path and small construction site paver. At just 13,228 lbs. operating weight and 51 inches transport width, this compact paver can be transported to jobsites on a trailer. The paver’s narrow 44-inch track width fits in the cut of a 4-foot cold planer to boost efficiency of mill-and-fill applications. 

The hydraulically extendible electric screed offers base paving widths ranging from 3.6 feet to 6.6 feet. Manual screed extensions feature quick coupling technology with a locking wedge-and-socket design to quickly extend paving widths to 11.2 feet. Available reduction skids allow contractors to pave as narrow as 1.3 feet wide, significantly increasing the paver’s flexibility.

The BF 200 paver boasts patented Bomag Magmalife technology that heats the screed up to paving temperatures in approximately 20 minutes. This design casts heating elements into a single aluminum block for superior thermal conductivity. In addition to quick heating, Magmalife delivers higher uptime and more uniform heat distribution throughout the screed bottom for a tight mat texture without scuffing or tearing.

A two-level operator platform design provides the best view to both the hopper and paver sides. Offering single-operator capability, this new Bomag paver helps to lower labor costs as well as long-term operating costs. Equipped with an automatic steering radius system, the paver matches and holds cart path radius, while allowing the operator to focus on other paving functions.  

Powered by a fuel-efficient 74-hp diesel engine, the new BF 200 paver requires no diesel particulate filter (DPF) or diesel exhaust fluid (DEF) aftertreatment to meet Tier 4 Final emissions regulations. Bomag Ecomode active engine and hydraulics management system reduces fuel consumption by up to 20% standard mode operation. By delivering fast screed heat-ups, Magmalife further lowers fuel consumption to reduce the paver’s total cost of ownership.
