Bomag has extended its range of products with the addition of a new recycler and soil stabiliser, the MPH 364
MPH 364 is a compact and powerful machine which was launched at the Bell Equipment stand at BAUMA CONEXPO AFRICA 2015. The new construction machine has an operating weight of 17 tonnes and a working width of 2,005 mm. The compact design and a powerful 360 HP engine make the MPH 364 a good choice for small projects such as car parks, minor roads and paths.
The rear-mounted milling rotor allows the machine to perform well in places where manoeuvrability is important, like on corners and around street lights, manhole covers and other obstacles. The design allows the driver a good view of the relevant work areas around the machine and also to negotiate them with precision.
Operating controls are clearly arranged and focused on the essentials. Functions are clearly described to enable intuitive handling of all instruments and help familiarisation. Along with the hydraulic steering, there is a travel lever and separate wheel brakes for the rear axle, providing the machine with effective precision steering.
To stabilise soil, lime, fly ash or cement is mixed into the prevalent material to improve the soil or stabilise the sub-soils in embankments. When used for recycling, the MPH 364 also rips up asphalt pavements, including the bearing course, crushes the material and mixes in new binder. This extends the machine’s range of application, therefore increasing its utility.
Maintenance openings, such as those to check oil level or to clean the air filter, have been designed for easy access.
The MPH 364 also performs well in larger road construction projects on account of equipment like a water spray system that is usually only found as standard in larger machines.
