BOMAG BW 138 AD-5 Tandem Vibratory Roller
identification of "soft" spots in the
material.
A 35.4-in (900-mm) drum
diameter delivers more drum impact
area with the surface to reduce
rolling resistance, deliver smoother
surface finish, and improve
asphalt mat quality. Dual vibration
frequencies of 3,000 and 3,360
vpm (50 and 56 Hz) offer rolling
speeds reaching 3.8 mph (6.1 km/h)
while maintaining proper impact
spacing on asphalt projects. With
its 0.020-in (0.50-mm) amplitude
and average linear load of 86.6 lb/
in (15.4 kg/cm), the BW 138 AD-5
penetrates asphalt and granular soil
base materials. Front-only, rear-only
or front-and-rear vibration mode
operation allows the operator to
adjust machine compaction output
to jobsite conditions.

The BW 138 AD-5 features
maintenance-free bearings. The
roller's articulation joint boasts bolton construction for fast removal
and 2-in (51-mm) steering for easy
compaction against obstructions.
Braided cable bundles improve
reliability of the roller's electrical
system. For more information, visit

the backlit color displays make
it easy to read current settings at
night or in bright sunlight. With
the ErgoPlus 3 screed console, the
screed can be adjusted variably and
rapidly in a range from 8 ft. to 15
ft. 6 in. (2.45 m to 4.75 m), or with
bolt-on extensions to 19 ft. 6 in.
(5.95 m).
The entire material handling
system of the SUPER 1700-3i and
SUPER 1703-3i is designed for
high output, starting with the

extra-large receiving hopper with
a capacity of 14.3 tons (13 tonnes),
which supports the easy and rapid
supply of mix from the trucks.
High-powered, separate hydraulic
drives on the conveyor and auger
deliver an optimum head of mix
in front of the screed in many
paving situations: They support
high laydown rates of up to 770
tons/h (700 tonnes/h). For more

With its large drum diameter and
high compaction forces, the BOMAG
BW 138 AD-5 tandem vibratory
roller is an all-round roller for paving
contractors and municipalities. Its
54.3-in (1,380mm) rolling width
is designed for granular soil and
asphalt compaction, efficiently used
on projects ranging from parking
lot paving to county road repair
to compaction of urban street
developments.
When equipped with the
intuitive ECONOMIZER compaction
measurement system, the BW 138
AD-5 alerts operators to compaction
progress of the soil or asphalt
material, reducing passes and saving
time and money. The system also
warns operators of potential overcompaction to prevent aggregate
fracturing as well as allows for the

With their strong performance and
a compact design, the new 8-ft.
SUPER 1700-3i tracked and SUPER
1703-3i wheeled pavers further
integrate many advantages for
demanding operating conditions.
For example, the material handling
concept effectively counteracts
thermal and mechanical segregation
via its receiving hopper, ascending
conveyors and hydraulic augers, the
height of which can be adjusted by 6
in. (15 cm).
The ErgoPlus 3 operating concept
encompasses an ergonomic paver
operator's platform with numerous
intelligent details, such as a hardtop
with an extendable sunshade and
comfortable seats that swing out to
the side. The heart of the ErgoPlus
3 system is the operating consoles
for the driver and screed operator.
All functions are arranged here
in logical groups; push-buttons
support reliable operation even
when wearing work gloves, and
