Cat® Engine with ACERT™ Technology
ACERT Technology utilizes a series of Caterpillar engineered innovations that provide advanced electronic control, precise fuel delivery and refined air management.

Cat C7.1 Engine with ACERT Technology
The C7.1 engine provides 168 kW (225 hp) at 2200 rpm with a torque of 872 N-m. The combination of large displacement and high torque allow the BG1055E to perform under the toughest conditions.

Cat C6.6 Engine with ACERT Technology
The C6.6 engine provides 168 kW (225 hp) at 2200 rpm with a torque of 1028 N-m. The combination of large displacement and high torque allow the BG1055E to perform under the toughest conditions.

Emissions Reduction Technology
The Cat C7.1 engine is equipped with a Diesel Particulate Filter (DPF) that traps soot from the exhaust stream. The soot is removed through a process called regeneration, while the ash remains in the filter and must be removed at a required service interval of 5000 hours. The C7.1 engine utilizes two types of regeneration, passive and active.

Regeneration occurs during normal idle periods. The C7.1 utilizes two types of regeneration: active and passive. Neither active nor passive regeneration require operator intervention.

Meets U.S. EPA Tier 4 Interim and E.U. Stage IIIB Emissions Standards
Reduces oxides of nitrogen by 50 percent from Tier 3/Stage IIIA levels. Reduces particulate matter by 90 percent from Tier 3/Stage IIIA levels. Ultra Low Sulfur Diesel (ULSD) fuel is required. Engine oil must meet Caterpillar ECF-3, API CJ-4/ACEA E9 specifications.

Service, Maintenance and Repair
Easier service, maintenance and repair is accomplished by monitoring key functions and logging critical indicators. Advanced electronic diagnostic capabilities are possible using CAT® Electronic Technician.

Eco-mode increases fuel efficiency
Once activated, Eco-mode reduces engine rpm from 2200 rpm to 1650 rpm, which is suitable for most normal paving applications. The reduction of engine rpm during operation will reduce fuel burn compared with normal engine rpm. If an application demands more power, Eco-mode can be deactivated to return to 2200 rpm.

Fumes Management System
The ventilation system draws fumes from the conveyor tunnel as well as the auger chamber and redirects them away from the operator for a more comfortable working environment.

High Capacity Cooling System
The high capacity cooling system allows the fan to run slower, reducing power demand while extending component life.

Variable Speed Fan
The variable speed fan is electronically controlled and hydraulically driven providing on-demand cooling, reduced engine power demand and quiet operation.

Dual Operator Stations
The dual operator stations provide complete control and good visibility from either side of the operating platform.

Dual Operator Stations
The dual operator stations incorporate fully equipped consoles with meter per minute (feet per minute) gauges, adjustable suspension seats, armrests and retractable seat belts.

Operator Visibility
The dual operator stations can be positioned in one of four different locations to provide optimum visibility. The stations can extend beyond the machine frame for good visibility when joint matching or while paving other applications where precise control is required.

Mobil-Trac™ Undercarriage
The Mobil-Trac undercarriage provides superior durability while delivering unmatched mobility and traction. Smooth or tread bar belts are available

Durable Mobil-Trac™ Belt

Large Ground Contact Area
The Mobil-Trac’s large ground contact area provides even weight distribution over the entire length of the belt.

Friction Drive
A hydraulic tensioning cylinder with an accumulator maintains friction between the Mobil-trac belt and the drive wheel in order to provide drive traction. Manual adjustment of track tension is not required.

Rubber Coated Steel Mid-Wheels
The fully bogied undercarriage provides low maintenance and long life.

Operator Consoles
The operator consoles are designed for productivity and accessibility. All gauges and displays are grouped for convenient and simple operation.

Operator Consoles

Speed Control Dial
A speed control dial located on each operator station allows the operator to set a maximum travel speed which is important for producing a smooth, high-quality mat.

Machine Controller
The machine controller integrates performance functions and allows the feeder and auger speeds to be set independently which extends component life.

Advisor Display
The Advisor display provides visual references, self diagnostics, and planning tools that keep the operator informed for better overall job site performance.

Exclusive Material Delivery System
Productivity and quality enhancements are built-in features.

Mix Delivery
The BG1055E provides precise mix delivery with minimal operator monitoring through the most advanced material handling system.

Feeders Controlled Independently
Left and right feeders in addition to the left and right augers are controlled independently. The ability to control these four components separately, through a machine controller, eliminates the need for feeder gates.

Mix Delivery Control
In order to control mix delivery, the operator sets a speed rate for each feeder that will maintain the desired mix level in the left and right auger chambers. Once the feeder speeds are set, the ratio of feeder speed to the maximum auger speed is automatically maintained by the machine controller, even through the propel rate may change as the job progresses.

Ratio Control
This ratio control capability is particularly helpful when paving wider on one side of the machine than on the other. Each feeder can be set at a specified speed to deliver the proper amount of mix that is needed.

Outboard Feeder Drives
Increased live tunnel area provides easy servicing.

Gateless Feeders
Variable speed feeders precisely control mix delivery while reducing wear and segregation.

Gateless Feeders Run Full of Mix
The gateless feeders on the BG1055E always run full of mix regardless of the speed required to fill the auger chamber. This is typically a slower speed than would be experienced with a paver utilizing feeder gates to control mix delivery rates. By not always having to run at full speed, feeder component wear is significantly reduced.

Changes in Feeder Speed
When changes in feeder speed are required, delivery of mix to the augers is immediate. This is in contrast to pavers with gates, where any delivery rate change is delayed for the length of time it takes to clear the tunnel of mix from the previous gate setting.

Running at Slower Speeds
Running at slower speeds can also help reduce the opportunity for segregation, especially when working with larger stone mixes that have more of a tendency to segregate.

Feeder Design
Tunnel construction improves mix flow.

Auger Assembly
Provides mat consistency while minimizing segregation.

Generator System (Optional)
The high capacity, integrated generator ensures peak performance and high reliability.

Single Control Switch
A single switch on the tractor’s operating console activates the generator. The generator operates at 1800 rpm and includes GFCI protection.

Auxiliary Power Panel (Optional)
The auxiliary power panel provides efficient power for night-time lighting and other job site power needs.
