BOMAG's new RS500 stabiliser/reclaimer features a novel hydraulic offset system for its cutter drum
BOMAG’s new RS500 reclaimer stabiliser offers a combination of high performance and versatility, according to the firm. Its most innovative design feature is the sideshift system fitted to the cutter drum, which allows the entire rotor housing to be moved from one side to another. This means that the drum can operate outside of the wheel track, so that the machine can be used to stabilise ground alongside a Jersey barrier for example, boosting overall versatility.
The machine is also equipped with BOMAG’s Flexmix technology, which offers three infinitely adjustable gradation bars and is said to deliver optimum control over final material sizing.
Despite its output and performance, the machine is also designed for ease of transport and a novel feature is the height-adjustable cab that gives the machine a transport height of just 3.1m. This means that when the machine is being transported from site to site, the lowboy driver will have more route options due to its optimised height clearance.
