The purpose built Cat four wheel drive soil compactors maximize soil density through a tamping wheel tip design, machine weight impact and higher speeds for greater penetration.

Power Train

Caterpillar diesel engines, planetary power shift transmissions and heavy duty axles and brakes deliver performance and reliability.

Axles and Brakes

Heavy duty axles and brakes are designed to last. Planetary final drives use bronze sleeve bearings in the planet gears and differential pinion. Oil-disc brakes are adjustment-free and fully enclosed. Patented Duo-Cone seals between the axle shafts and housings keep lubrication in and dirt out. Oscillating rear axle ensures ground contact for traction and stability.


Cat Soil Compactors are provided with S-blades for fill spreading and other dozing. Lever at operator’s right controls blade.

Wheels and Tamping Feet

Tamping foot design and pattern give traction, penetration and compaction.


Innovative hydraulics play a key role in performance. Increased flow rate results in faster cycle times. Rugged XT-3 and XT-5 hose, O-ring face seals and large-bore cylinders carry on the tradition of Caterpillar hydraulics.

Operator Station

Operator comfort and productivity are maximized by visibility, position of levers, switches and gauges, and air quality and sound control.
