technology designed control panel supports the driver with automatic functions and operating aids, while the controls have been clearly arranged for easy operation. An operator is able to change between three application-specific settings — Eco/ Torque, Universal, and Speed — for the milling speed, by using a single three- stage switch on the front panel. Set for the required milling depth, the milling drum always works in the optimum torque range and travel speed is automatically maximised to deliver the best surface quality, fastest possible work rate, reduced consumption and minimised wear. “Since launching globally in 2013, Bomag has over 100 cold milling units working worldwide, and the introduction by Bell is in direct response to our customer needs. We are excited by the opportunity to broaden our road construction product offering and thereby strengthen our commitment to our customers to improve their operational and maintenance costs in a highly competitive market,” says Hanekom. n Compact design and manoeuvrability make these Bomag machines well suited for the removal of road and floor pavements under confined conditions. The compact Bomag BM1000/35 cold planer has a working width of 1 000mm and is capable of milling up to 3 000m 2 per day. QUARRY SA | MAY 2017 _ 31
