Compactor meets NJ needs
The Cape May County Municipal Utilities Authority recently purchased the first BOMAG BC1172RB refuse compactor in the state of New Jersey to help increase its refuse compaction capabilities and extend the life of its landfill. The BOMAG BC1172RB is the largest refuse compactor manufactured by BOMAG. Its dimensions of 15.8 feet high by 17 feet wide and weight of 120,000 pounds give it the size and static weight to move and compact the refuse productively. The BOMAG BC1172RB has 72 teeth per wheel and weighs 120,000 pounds. Its static weight, along with the number of teeth per wheel, creates optimum compaction. It also has a two-wire cutting system for each wheel, which protects the wheels from wire wrap-arounds. Slope grading tests were conducted, showing that the machine has high ground clearance and is built to handle tough inclines.
