Cat Soil Compactors
Cat Soil Compactors are designed with durability built in, ensuring maximum availability through multiple life cycles. With optimized performance and simplified serviceability, our machines allow you to operate more efficiently and safely.
Representing a long-standing commitment to quality and performance, this rugged, powerful machine is designed and built for heavy-duty compaction and dozing operations. Focused on helping our customers succeed, we have continued to build upon each new series. The Cat Soil Compactor continues our legacy of reliability, performance, safety, operator comfort, serviceability, and efficiency.
Cat Soil Compactor Efficiency and Productivity
Delivering the efficiency and productivity you demand through integrated machine systems.
Soil Compactor Advanced Productivity Electronic Control System (APECS)
The new APECS is designed to improve transmission shifting performance, providing a higher level of comfort for the operator and increasing productivity.
Cat Soil Compactors are specifically designed and made with purpose built structures to remain safe and durable for the long run. Advanced design, materials and robotic welding contribute to increased durability and overall machine strength.
Engine and Power Train
Operate with improved power and control with next generation fuel systems, diesel exhaust fluid to reduce NOx emissions, Cat planetary Powershift Transmission, innovative integration, and aftertreatment technologies which support Tier 4 final stage emission standards.
Tamping Wheels and Tips
Chevron Tamping Tip Design
The modified chevron tamping wheel tip design provides greater ground pressure, more compaction, excellent traction and a smooth ride.
Compaction is achieved from the bottom of the lift to the top. The tapered tips walk out of the lift without “fluffing” the soil. The top of the lift is compacted and the surface is relatively smooth and sealed so hauling
units are able to maintain a high speed when traveling over the fill. The Soil Compactor travel speed allows four forces of compaction: pressure, manipulation, impact and vibration. Since the Cat Soil Compactors can also spread fill, the number of spreader tractors may be able to be reduced.
Symmetrical Tamping Tip Pattern
Equal compaction in forward or reverse is the result of the symmetrical tamping tip pattern. Tips are full perimeter and replaceable. The tip is welded to a base assembly, which then is welded directly to the drum.
Each wheel has two cleaner bars to keep the drums free of carryover dirt, regardless of rolling direction so efficiency is maximized. Cleaner bars are available with standard or abrasive tips depending upon the application.
Adjustable Cleaner Bar Tip
The adjustable cleaner bar tips are heat-treated and direct hardened, cutting edge steel to increase wear life, which translates into lower operating costs.
Your operators can work more efficiently and stay comfortable with our customer-inspired cab features. Best-in-class operator comfort and ergonomics.

Idle shutdown, waste reduction, high speed oil change, built to be rebuilt design
Data from customer machines show Cat Soil Compactors are among the most fuel efficient machines in the industry. Several features contribute to this excellent fuel efficiency:
• Fuel Tank Capacity minimum of 12 hours operation depending on the application
• ACERT Engine – Advanced engine controls maximizes power and efficiency.
• Engine Idle Shutdown – Automatic engine and electrical system shutdown conserves fuel.
• Advanced Productivity Electronic Control System (APECS) – All new APECS transmission controls provides greater momentum on grades and fuel savings by carrying that momentum through the shift points.
