The new Bomag BM 2200/65 large planer has a lighter, compact, and maneuverable design than previous generations. The machine has a 58-inch milling radius, which is up to 14 percent smaller than competitive models, which improves machine productivity in the field, and increases efficiency in tight-radius applications. Its conveyor offers a 16-foot discharge height plus a 130-degree conveyor slewing angle which allows the material to be discharged into trucks on both sides of the mill. To facilitate transport, the conveyor retracts to a length 23.6 inches shorter than previous designs.

Meeting Tier 4 Final/Stage V emissions standards, the mill's 630 hp (470 kW) engine matches power with milling speed for ideal operating efficiency. The profile of the Bomag BBMS15L cutting tooth holder system reduces resistance and delivers up to 20 percent fuel savings. System design extends holder service life to lower costs. Offering a range of milling drum designs and the choice of three different rotor speeds, the BM 2200/65 planer can be used on a wide range of asphalt and concrete milling applications. 

Intuitive operation is the main feature of the new 60,296-pound 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 clearly displays grade and slope settings on the large 7-inch display, and settings are quickly changed with minimal screen navigation. 

Comfort and visibility of the new Bomag BM 2200/65 large planer

Designed for comfort and efficiency, the BM 2200/65's vibration-isolated operator's station allows for comfortable operation from either a seated or standing position. Additional cushioning at the platform's standing areas helps to ensure fatigue-free operation. Stepless platform side-shift up to 7.8 inches provides ideal visibility to the right cutting edge and side plate, allowing the operator to hold the milling line.

The mill's design gives the operator all-around visibility of the machine. Forward visibility offers operators a view of the cutting edge, milling track, and the front danger zone around the conveyor for ideal precision. A flat rear design offers an improved view of the area behind the mill for increased operating safety. 

The standard water spray and dust extraction systems, complete with conveyor shrouding, remove fine particulate matter from the machine. Removing up to 80 percent more fine dust particles smaller than 10 microns in size, the optional Bomag ION DUST SHIELD is a technology that meets fine dust regulations. 

With all key machine service points easily accessible, routine maintenance is completed quickly and efficiently. All filters can be reached from the operator's platform through the wide-opening engine hood, as are the fill ports for fuel and AdBlue. Large left- and right-hand service panels provide simple accessibility to the machine's auxiliary drive and milling gear, while engine service points are easily accessed from both above and below.
