BMP 8500 multipurpose articulated trench compactor has dual exciters and directed centrifugal force and is powered by a 19.4-horsepower Kubota diesel. Two amplitudes may be selected for two output options: 8,000 and 16,000 pounds. Bomag’s Ecomode system automatically idles the engine during pauses in compaction, and Intelligent Vibration Control helps achieve consistent results. Remote control is dual function, funtioning with an umbilical cable or wireless radio control. Bolt-on drum extensions give two working widths: 24 and 33.5 inches.
