Tips and Wheels
Caterpillar offers a choice of tips and blades welded on our own steel wheels that will fit your needs. No matter what your choice may be, it is part of the total system our compactors offer: maximum production, performance and compaction.
Standard EquipmentThe standard machine offering is the long-life Plus Tip that provides excellent traction and side-hill stability with a self-cleaning layout that resists plugging. The self-cleaning chopper blades for shredding material are optional. All choices are specifically designed for our Cat steel wheels.
Plus TipsPlus Tips with Abrasion Resistant Material (ARM) have a plus-shaped design for superior compaction and sidehill stability on sloped material. A widely spaced 20 tip pattern requires fewer tips than other manufacturers and results in less plugging, lower replacement costs and maximum compaction. Plus Tips are guaranteed for 10,000 hours or four years of wear life. They offer the lowest cost per hour of any compactor tips in the industry.
Self Cleaning Chopper WheelsThe self cleaning chopper wheels are designed to deliver maximum compaction and traction. Aggressive chopping action is provided by 20 blades per wheel. Heat-treated DH-2™, ARM steel blades provide longer wear. The staggered, chevron blade arrangement evenly distributes chopping coverage. Blade center gussets help assure maximum refuse demolition. Blades are mounted differently on the front and rear wheels to maximize chopping and compaction in both forward and reverse.
Smooth Wheel OptionIf our tip selection does not meet your needs, consider Cat smooth steel wheels. This option ensures that no matter what landfill tip you prefer, you get Cat wheels built to our stringent specifications. Our manufacturing and research engineers work together to design, build and test a complete power train system. The wheels, a critical component to the total system, are manufactured in the same facility as our landfill compactors. This ensures the entire system is complemented by each component. Altering critical components can compromise our power train system that is designed for peak performance. If an off-the-shelf manufacturer's wheels are installed that do not meet our design specifications and do not balance the load over our final drives, bearing life could be reduced substantially and cause premature wear out of other components, resulting in unnecessary downtime. This situation runs contrary to the Caterpillar goal to keep our customers operating with maximum productivity, performance and compaction. This wheel option also allows our standard axle guard system to work with the components for which it was designed.
The Cat power train makes dependable performance a standard feature.
Cat® C9 ACERT EngineThe C9 engine with ACERT™ Technology delivers, at a rated speed of 2,100 rpm, net power of 173 kW (232 hp) and meets the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency Tier 3 emissions regulations and Stage IIIA EU Emissions Directive 97/68/EC. With high horsepower and low displacement, this innovative engine provides excellent fuel economy and durability which can significantly reduce operating costs.
Torque RiseThe electronically controlled, computer-actuated unit injection fuel system provides high injection pressure and more precisely controlled fuel delivery as the engine lugs back from rated speed, resulting in increased torque above the rated power during heavy loads on machine.
ADEM™ IV Fuel SystemA Cat electronic control module provides improved engine response, performance, fuel efficiency, troubleshooting diagnostics and reduced emissions. It allows integration with the electronic transmission control for maximum power train efficiency.
TurbochargerThe turbocharger packs more dense air into the cylinders for more complete combustion and lower emissions, improving performance and engine efficiency. These benefits are especially useful at high altitudes.
Air-to-Air AftercoolerEmissions are reduced by providing cooler inlet air for more efficient combustion. This also extends the life of the piston rings and bore.
Dual Cooling JetsLocated in the block, dual cooling jets spray oil on the piston skirt and cylinder bores to keep ring temperatures low for long ring and liner life with excellent oil control.
PistonsTwo-piece, articulated pistons with forged steel crowns offer excellent strength and aluminum skirts for reduced weight. The pistons are oil cooled for increased heat dissipation and longer life.
ValvesFour valves per cylinder allow for good air flow, enhancing fuel efficiency and heat rejection. The valves and unit injection system are camshaft-actuated for precise timing.
CrankshaftSteel-forged, carburized and induction-hardened, the crankshaft offers long-term durability and is dynamically balanced for smooth operation. The crankshaft is also completely regrindable, and the connecting rods can be removed through the tops of the cylinders for easy servicing.
Cat Engine OilRecommended for use in Cat diesel engines, Cat Engine Oil is formulated to optimize engine life and performance. The engine oil change interval is 500 hours.
Cat Remanufactured PartsA large choice of factory remanufactured parts and dealer proposed repair options increase machine availability and reduce total repair costs.
Heavy-Duty Axles and BrakesThe axles and brakes are designed to last in all kinds of operating conditions. Two front axle disc brakes provide improved braking capability and better heat dissipation. Planetary final drives use free-floating, bronze sleeve bearings in the planet gears. • Oil-disc brakes are adjustment-free and fully enclosed to lock out contaminants
Front AxleThe front axle is rigidly mounted to the frame to support the weight of the compactor, internal torque loads and external loads applied during compacting operation.
Rear AxleA trunnion, two trunnion supports and associated bearings make up the rear axle which oscillates plus or minus eight degrees, ensuring four wheel ground contact for traction and stability.
Four-Piece AxleThe four-piece axle contains two axle shaft housings - the center housing and the intermediate housing. Features and benefits of the four-piece axle design include: • Inboard brakes on the front axle only are positioned immediately adjacent to the differential and operate on the low torque side of the final drive, requiring less braking force to stop the machine
Optional No-SPIN differentials are available for improving traction in poor underfoot conditions.
- Front No-SPIN differentials for corner loading, uneven floor applications where weight transfer occurs within the front axle.
- Rear No-SPIN differentials for uphill load operations or any other application where increased weight is transferred to the rear axle.
Both front and rear No-SPIN differentials are needed only for extreme poor underfoot conditions or for straight ahead heavy dozing applications. (NOTE: Both front and rear No-SPIN differentials installed, may reduce steering performance and maneuverability in tight turning radius applications as well as increase operating costs.)
Electronic Power Shift TransmissionDesigned, developed and built by Caterpillar, the transmission allows full power speed and directional changes. Fully modulated gear shifts significantly contribute to operator comfort and increase machine productivity as well as component life.
Electronic Clutch Pressure Control (ECPC)/Controlled Throttle Shifting (CTS)ECPC and CTS sense input from both the transmission and the operator controls in the cab to modulate each individual clutch through a proportional electro-hydraulic valve. This results in smoother shifts in both speed and direction. Energy is modulated into the clutches, resulting in longer clutch life.
Several blade options are available to match your spreading and dozing requirements.
The straight blade is a standard attachment and an ideal blade for most waste management applications.
- Built to withstand the rigors of heavy duty dozing
- Versatile blade for most applications
- Trash rack design provides excellent visibility
- Design incorporates Cat cutting edges
The U-blade dozes refuse while helping to retain load.
- Capacities and widths are set to achieve increased productivity
- Special design can spread cover material as well as doze refuse
- Wing angles up to 25 degrees help retain the load while dozing
- Top rack is designed to allow excellent operator visibility
- Cat cutting edges and ground engaging tools (G.E.T.) are standard
Semi-U-BladeThe Semi-U blade offers the spreading benefits of the straight blade but with the ends slightly angled in for U-blade benefits such as added control and carrying capabilities.Contact Cat Work Tools and Services for more information on U-blades and Semi-U blades.
Comfort and control - a top quality operator's station helps maximize productivity.
1 Exceptional All-Around Viewing AreaThe large viewing area reduces strain and fatigue, making operators more productive. With the rear vision camera attachment, the operator can more easily see what is behind the machine by way of an in-cab monitor.
2 Caterpillar® Monitoring SystemWith electronic analog gauges, the Caterpillar Monitoring System is a highly effective and reliable warning and diagnostic system. As a warning system, it constantly checks machine functions and tells the operator when there is a problem. Easy-to-read gauges display fuel level, temperatures for engine coolant, transmission and hydraulic oil, engine rpm and gear range. Hour meter, odometer and analog tachometer readings are also displayed. As a diagnostic system, it identifies conditions, shows current readings and plays back maximum or highest readings registered during recent operations. The right side panel contains a three-level warning system, providing full time monitoring of key functions. The system alerts the operator of immediate or impending problems with air inlet temperature, brake oil pressure, electrical system, low voltage, engine oil pressure, engine over-speed, fuel filter status, parking brake status, steering oil pressure and transmission filter status.
3 Quick Gear Kick Up/Down ButtonThe operator can easily downshift or upshift to a different gear with the kick up/down button. It is a convenient way to shift that saves time and effort.
4 Ignition Key Start/Stop SwitchThe ignition key/switch is positioned for easy machine starting and stopping.
5 12-Volt Power Supply and Electronic Technician (Cat ET) DiagnosticsThe power supply inside the cab can power radios, telephones or a laptop computer. This is particularly useful for powering a laptop running Cat ET to access the enhanced engine and transmission control system diagnostics.
