TEST RESULTS
TANA E520 VS. BOMAG 1172-RB
Test was conducted between 27.2-13.3.2015 in Belvedere Landfill, in Legoli, Italy. Test was done by Belvedere Landfill team with independent surveyor, highly qualified Bomag operator and TANA operator. Test shows that TANA Landfill compactor compacts 15% better than Bomag compactor. TANA was able to compact the material 850kg/m3 (1366 tons/cubic yards) and on the comparison Bomag with 740kg/m3 (1193 tons/cubic yards). Belvedere landfill team also measured the fuel consumption after every day and this was also recorded.

TANA can also handle higher capacity of waste and fully function in the peak hours. TANA Landfill compactors fuel consumption is 12% lower than Bomag machines in the same working hours and capacity.

Active time for compaction allows Bomag machine to get closer to TANA compaction level. But on the peak hours the compaction level can be even greater than 15% as TANA achieves the compaction level quicker.
