Bomag

In General:

BOMAG construction machines can be identified from the following numbers:

  Location (short description)
Serial number – stamped onto the vehicle on the right, viewed in the direction of travel
– stamped onto the vehicle on the right, viewed in the direction of travel On the type plate (riveted on, beneath the cabin, on the left, viewed in the direction of travel) The type plate is milled.
Engine Number – engraved onto an adhesive and a riveted type plate

 

The serial number can be used to determine the units installed when the vehicle was first delivered. It is not possible to do this in reverse order.

Serial number àUnit installed = Yes

Aggregat àSerial number = No

4. Gearbox number:

Not available

5. Vehicle Keys:

Construction machines use unitary keys as there   few other locks requiring other keys. Keys cannot   use  for identification purposes.

6. Miscellaneous:

Certificate of Conformity

Owners of construction machines which   not license  for use on public highways only have a so-called ‘Certificate of Conformity’ (confirmation that the machine conforms with European Directives) as proof of ownership. BOMAG issues certificates of conformity only on printed A4 sheets of paper without specific security features.
