Caterpillar Launches 10 New Compactors
Caterpillar introduces 10 new compactors that deliver increased productivity, unmatched efficiency, simple operation and easy maintenance. The new line includes weight-based model nomenclature changes. These versatile rollers take on a range of soil and asphalt applications, including parking lots, driveways, urban streets, landscaping and small construction sites.
The new Cat CB2.5, CB2.7, CC2.7, CC 2.9, CB4.0, CC4.0 and CB4.4 models are built for power and production. Advanced hydraulics and exclusive power management software deliver exceptional performance on grades. Their new auto idle shutdown feature helps to conserve fuel and hours.
Designed for rental and low- to medium-duty applications, the efficient Cat GC series compactors deliver low total cost of ownership, simplified maintenance and long-term durability.
The reengineered operator controls features simple rocker switches and easy-to-read Cat display for intuitive operation, so even inexperienced operators can quickly learn. A switch efficiently controls low/high vibration frequencies, while auto vibration control ceases vibration when the travel lever is in neutral to prevent marking of the asphalt mat. Available dual propel levers help to improve operator comfort.
Offering compaction widths from 1.0 to 1.4 m, Cat utility compactors feature large drum diameters for a smooth mat finish and thick drum shells for added durability. The rollers’ 50 mm drum offset improves compaction efficiency when rolling next to curbs. A narrow frame design allows for improved visibility to the job surface and drum edge.
Both the standard and GC series models incorporate a water tank gauge for continuous monitoring from the operator’s station. Better positioned nozzles on the spray bars improves water coverage on the drum to prevent material pick-up.
The new utility compactor line features standard Cat ET (electronic technician) diagnostic software. When connected to the Electronic Control Module (ECM), Cat ET accesses diagnostic information such as status parameters display, active diagnostic codes viewing, logged diagnostic codes view, and diagnostic tests and calibration to help identify machine issues.
Standard Product Link™ technology captures critical operating data, fault codes and machine location information to boost fleet management efficiency.
