The BM 2200/65 planer can be used on a wide range of asphalt and concrete milling applications

BOMAG’s new BM 2200/65 large planer is designed to be lighter, more compact and maneuverable for optimal performance and ease of operation.

A modest, 58-in milling radius – up to 14% smaller than competitive models, according to BOMAG – improves machine productivity in the field, increasing efficiency in tight-radius applications like small roundabouts and cul-de-sacs.

Its conveyor offers a 16-ft discharge height plus larger, 130˚ conveyor slewing angle – 65˚ to the left/right of center – allowing material to be efficiently discharged into trucks on both sides of the mill.

To facilitate transport, the conveyor retracts to a length 23.6 in shorter than previous designs.

Meeting Tier 4 Final/Stage V emissions standards, the mill’s 630-hp engine matches power with milling speed for greater operating efficiency. The profile of the BOMAG BMS15L quick-change cutting tooth holder system reduces resistance and delivers up to 20% fuel savings, the company said.

System design extends holder service life to lower costs. Offering a range of milling drum designs and the choice of three different rotor speeds to tailor rotor speed to the job, the BM 2200/65 planer can be used on a wide range of asphalt and concrete milling applications.

Intuitive operation was the goal of the design of the new 60,296-lb BM 2200/65 half-lane mill. To simplify milling control, BOMAG Easy Cut technology automatically regulates the height of the rear drive, so the rear of the machine follows the front to its set depth, making the operator’s work simpler.

BOMAG Easy Level displays grade and slope settings on the 7-in display, and settings are quickly changed with minimal screen navigation.
