Aggregate Industries’ Contracted division have introduced their latest pivot-steered rollers as part of their continued commitment to high health and safety standards across sites.
The new BOMAG’s BW 154 pivot-steered tandem roller has a 270° rotating seat, capable of maneuvering across the full width of the cab.
With a split drum and the absence of an enclosed front and rear cab, operators have the ability to always face in the right direction for compaction.
This ensures a safer working environment due to improved visibility.
Fitted with the compaction system ‘Asphalt Manager’, the roller monitors compaction and alerts the roller operator when no further compaction is required.
Over-compaction is elimintated, optimizing the whole-life performance of the asphalt. It also reduces drum bounce and vibration, lessening the risk of our operators developing a repetitive strain injury (RSI).
With the trial of the BOMAG 154 completed in June 2018, Aggregate Industries is rolling out a complete fleet of eight rollers across its Southern division by the end of the year.
