826G Landfill Compactor

Specifically designed for heavy-duty landfill operations.

Trash Protection

Increases cooling capacity and reduces trash and debris build-up.

Radiator and cooling system

Radiator and cooling system on the 826G incorporate many trash resistant features.

Tips and Wheels

Cat 826C Landfill Compactor offers excellent compaction and traction.


Extending the life of your current site through increased compaction can be a cost-effective alternative to new site development.

Weld-on Plus Tips with Abrasion Resistant Material

Exclusive Plus-shaped design provides superior compaction densities.

Self-cleaning Chopper Wheels

Self-cleaning Chopper Wheels are designed to deliver maximum compaction and traction in landfill work.

Weld-on Tips

Weld-on traction tips are designed for those landfill applications where maximum traction is required. These tips perform best in frozen or other difficult to penetrate applications.

Landfill Features

Standard and optional features are designed for heavy-duty work in waste management situations.

Cat Anti-Wrap Axle Guard System (optional)

Protects final drives, planetaries and seals from damage caused by wire, cable, plastics or other materials.

Anti-Wrap Axle Components

The Anti-Wrap Axle Guard System is comprised of three basic components.


A cab bottom guard protects hoses and wires beneath the cab from damage due to flying debris and waste.

Straight Blade

The straight blade is ideal for most waste management applications. The straight blade is built to withstand the rigors of heavy-duty dozing and is a versatile blade for most applications.

Power Train Components

Cat power train delivers top performance and durability in tough applications.


The six-cylinder, turbocharged and aftercooled 3406C engine is one of the most developed and proven engines offered by Caterpillar.


The Caterpillar planetary, power shift transmission features heavy-duty components to handle the toughest jobs.


Heavy-duty axles feature stronger gears and bearings in both the differentials and final drives for increased durability.


Oil-enclosed, multiple-disc brakes feature fewer parts, better heat rejection and improved serviceability.


Well-balanced hydraulics deliver precise low-effort control and trouble-free operation.

Hydraulic System

A revolutionary hydraulic system provides low-effort implement control. Armrest-mounted levers send electrical signals to a pilot valve mounted on the front frame.

Command Control Steering

Low-effort, Command Control steering is another result of innovative design. A new mechanical feedback system and redesigned valve ratio provide quarter-turn side-to-side steering.

Load Sensing Steering

Load Sensing steering maximizes machine performance by directing power to steering system only when the operator steers the machine.

Hydraulic Pumps

Positive-displacement hydraulic pumps perform with high efficiency and great reliability. For improved serviceability, all hydraulic pumps are mounted on a single pump drive.

Caterpillar's XT-3 and XT-5 Hose

Caterpillar's XT-3 and XT-5 hose, O-ring face seals and large capacity lift cylinder top off the hydraulic system, delivering the performance and durability owners expect.

Operator Controls

A revolutionary way to operate with easy-to-use, low-effort controls.

Operator Control Benefits

One of the most exciting benefits of the 826G is the dramatic reduction in operator motion effort provided by Command Control steering, integrated transmission controls and fully hydraulic brakes.

Command Control Steering

Command Control steering allows one hand operation of steering and transmission controls.

Implement Control Lever

Low-effort implement control lever requires very low operator effort and reduced travel.

Integrated Transmission Controls

Integrated transmission controls are part of the steering control design, providing one hand operation.

Dual-Pedal Braking

Dual-pedal braking lets the left pedal function as a brake. The right pedal functions as a regular brake.

Operator Control Options

Operator Station

Comfort and control - top-quality operator station will help maximize productivity.

Setting Industry Standards

The 826G sets a new industry standard for operator station comfort and efficiency. It offers easier entry and exit, 65 percent more volume, improved visibility and reduced sound levels.

Internal ROPS

Internal ROPS improves visibility and styling, giving the 824G a sleek new look.


Larger windows improve visibility in all directions.

Downsloped Hood

Downsloped hood also contribute to improved rearward visibility by allowing the operator to see objects on the ground closer to the machine.

Radio Ready

Radio ready means this cab includes 12-volt converter, speakers, antenna, all wiring and brackets for entertainment or communications radio installation.

Right and Left Rear-Hinged Doors

Right and left rear-hinged doors provide a walk-through operator's station.

Non-Metallic Floor

Non-metallic floor is rustproof and slopes to assist water drainage and clean-out.

Sound Level

Reduced sound level is the result of several new designs.


Increased storage space provides room for a lunch cooler, a thermos, a cup, coat hook and other personal items.


Caterpillar Contour Series seat is 6-way adjustable, providing comfort and support.

Monitoring System

826G Monitoring System provides gauges, tachometer/speedometer and 3-level warning to provide full-time monitoring of key functions.


Improved ventilation ducts and vents, in better locations, provide more air flow to the operator and the windows. Post-mounted vents provide air to the rear window.


Standard air-conditioning uses blended air for immediate temperature changes, clears windows with ease and improves operator comfort.

Reversing Fan Selection Switch

Reversing fan selection switch allows operator to reverse the radiator fan if conditions necessitate reversals more frequently than the automatically timed reversals.
