The Bomag BVP 12/50 A single-direction vibratory-plate compactor is specifically designed and equipped for asphalt compaction.

This asphalt specialist features a base plate specifically designed to avoid asphalt material pushing, shoving and scuffing to deliver a superior finish. The highly wear-resistant cast-iron base plate delivers exceptional service life.

With its base machine weight of less than 150 pounds and balanced single lifting point, the unit is easily moved around the jobsite and quickly loaded and unloaded for transport. The compactor’s standard sprinkler system with removable 1.8-gallon water tank prevents asphalt material from sticking to the base plate. With the tank’s lightweight design, this asphalt compactor has an operating weight of only 159 pounds.

The new compactor’s 19.7- x 20.9-inch  base plate offers more than 400-square inches of coverage to make quick work of asphalt repair work or compacting around obstructions. Offering a working speed of up to 82 fpm, the BVP 12/50 A features an amplitude of 0.043 inch and centrifugal force of 2,698 pounds to deeply penetrate asphalt and granular materials and quickly meet specified densities.

Offering trouble-free starting and reliable operation, the unit is powered by the 3.5 horsepower 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.

The compactor features a hinged handle design that includes rubber mounts to effectively minimize vibration transmitted to the operator’s hands and arms for more comfortable operation. Its V-belt guard fully encloses the belt’s movement to protect the operator from injury, while the enclosed design prevents material from entering the chamber to reduce repairs and increase service life. Compactor lifting handles assists in safe loading and unloading for transport.
