Tarmac buys new Bomag machine

Tarmac National Contracting has bought the first Bomag BF300 paver to arrive in the UK.

The compact wheeled paver has spent six weeks on the M62 motorway near Leeds, and more recently on a small scheme in York.

The machine has a basic width of 1.70m to 3.40m, but can be extended to 4m with two bolt-on extension boxes.
“The new BF300 is an ideal size for our small and medium sized jobs,” said Tarmac National Contracting contracts manager Steve Wragg.

“The machine is very manoeuvrable and provides operators with good “all-round” visibility. This is particularly important on smaller sites.”

The machine feature’s Bomag’s “Ecomode” management system, which saves fuel and reduces emissions by optimising engine power to match demand.

The newly designed hydraulic system ensures higher efficiency and lower fuel consumption, by eliminating flow dividers that are known to be a drain on energy.

Bomag’s range of pavers will be on show at Hillhead where they will be exhibited by supplier AP Pavers Sales.
