Caterpillar Production-Class Vibratory Soil Compactors
August 29, 2008

Caterpillar’s Production-Class range of vibratory soil compactors includes 11 models. The range of vibratory soil compactors includes the smooth drum CS54, CS56, CS64, CS74, CS76 and CS76 XT. Padfoot models include the CP54 (not offered in North America), CP56, CP64, CP74, and CP76. Production-Class soil compactors have operating weights ranging from 10.5 – 19 metric tons (11.6 – 21 U.S. tons) and feature the exclusive Cat dual pump propel system that provides excellent gradeability and blade performance. The dual pump propel system provides separate hydraulic flow to the rear wheels and the drum for exceptional tractive effort in soft underfoot conditions or steep slope applications and allows for superior control on a grade in forward and reverse. The new models feature a new engine that offers improved efficiency, better serviceability, more power, less noise and lower emissions. There are a number of options available as well, including AccuGrade Compaction, an intelligent compaction solution that correlates compaction measurements with GPS positions to create detailed compaction maps of the work area.
