Cat® 3054C Turbocharged Diesel Engine
The Cat® 3054C is a high-tech four cylinder engine that provides outstanding durability, performance, reliability and operating economy.
Turbocharged Air-to-air AftercoolingThe turbocharged air-to-air aftercooling provides improved fuel economy by packing cooler, denser air into cylinders for more complete combustion of the fuel and lower emissions.
Direct-Injection of FuelThe direct-injection of fuel provides maximum efficiency.
Cross-flow Cylinder HeadThe cross-flow cylinder head improves air flow into cylinder which increases power while lowering fuel consumption, engine emissions and noise.
Oil PumpA low-mounted oil pump allows for quick start-up-lubrication.
Large Oil CoolerA large oil cooler reduces oil deterioration and varnishing of internal components. Allows for 500 hour engine oil change intervals.
Meets Emission Control StandardsThe engine meets U.S. EPA Tier 2 and European EU Stage II emissions control standards worldwide.
The pod-style vibratory system delivers superior compactive force while offering serviceability advantages.
Pod-style Weight HousingsThe pod-style weight housings are assembled and sealed at the factory to ensure cleanliness, longer bearing life and easier field exchange or service.
Dual AmplitudeDual amplitude works efficiently in a wider range of applications. High or low amplitude is selected from the operator's station.
Heavy-duty BearingsLarge heavy-duty bearings for the eccentric weight shaft are designed for high compactive forces.
Vibratory Bearing Lube Service3 year/3000 hour vibratory bearing lube service interval reduces maintenance.
Isolation MountsHeavy-duty isolation mounts allow more force to be transmitted to the ground and less vibration to the drum yoke.
Proprietary Eccentric Weights
The proprietary eccentric weights on the CP533E provide reliable dual amplitude selection and the innovative design ensures precise performance.
Positive Amplitude SelectionThe positive amplitude selection is accomplished when the steel shot is repositioned inside the hollow eccentric weight. Direction of the weight shaft rotation determines amplitude level.
Simplified ControlThere is simplified control from the operator's station with a selection switch on the operator's console.
High ReliabilityThe weights are highly reliable since there is no chance of the high-strength spherical steel shot wedging together. System reliability is superior to swinging mechanical weights and is also quieter during starts and stops.
Long Service LifeThe proprietary eccentric weights have a longer service life because there are no heavy weights to slam together and no metal fragments to contaminate the bearing lubrication system.
Dual Pump Propel System
The dual pump propel system provides high tractive effort and gradeability for outstanding productivity in tough applications.
Propel PumpsThe dual propel pumps provide separate, balanced hydraulic flow to the rear wheel axle and the drum drive motors. Ample power is provided for compacting on moderate slopes and increases tractive effort in loose or poor underfoot conditions.
Limited Slip DifferentialLimited slip differential provides balanced tractive effort and smooth torque transfer to both rear wheels.
Two Speed RangesThere are two speed ranges for versatile operation. Low speed range for vibratory operation and maximum torque when climbing grades. High speed range moves the machine quickly over longer distances.
Flushing ValvesThe flushing valves in each propel circuit help keep hydraulic oil cool and clean for maximum system efficiency.
The operator's station is ergonomically designed for maximum operator productivity while offering excellent visibility and unmatched comfort.
Single Lever ControlA single lever control for propel and vibratory On/Off provides simple and low effort operation. A padded adjustable wrist rest provides comfort.
Comfortable and Durable SeatA comfortable and durable seat has adjustable fore/aft position, bottom cushion height, suspension stiffness and flip-up arm rests with a 76 mm (3") wide retractable seat belt.
Operator's StationIsolated operator's station with four heavy-duty rubber mounts limits machine vibration transmitted to the operator's station.
Rubber Floor MatA rubber floor mat provides sure footing and helps further isolate the operator from machine vibration and noise.
Gradeability and Machine Control
The exclusive dual pump propel system provides superior performance, machine control and good grade climbing capability.
Two Propel Pump SystemThe two propel pump system has dedicated pumps to drive the heavy-duty, high-torque rear wheel and the drum motors independently. Should the drum or wheels begin to spin, the non-spinning motor still receives hydraulic flow, allowing continuous tractive effort especially useful in loose underfoot conditions.
ControllabilityControllability is another feature of the dual propel pumps. The operator is able to stop, maintain machine position and change directions while on grade.
GradeabilityThe good gradeability of the CP533E allows high productivity. It is designed for typical applications working on level to moderate grades.
The sloped fiberglass hood design provides good service access and exceptional operator visibility.
VisibilityVisibility to the tire edges and rear of the machine is exceptional. The sloped hood allows the operator to see obstacles measuring 1 meter (3'3") high located 1 meter (3'3") to the rear of the machine. Excellent visibility increases productivity when working near obstructions or maneuvering around the job site.
Lockable Engine HoodThe lockable engine hood opens quickly and easily with the use of gas struts to provide good access to the engine, cooling system and all service points.
Low Sound LevelsLow sound levels for the operator and the ground crew is due to the engine hood and cooling air flow through the rear mounted radiator.
Open Platform with ROPS/FOPS Canopy
The platform on the CP533E is equipped with a ROPS/FOPS canopy and is enclosed by handrails and features angled foot rests for sure footing and support when working on a grade.
Working EnvironmentThe platform has a spacious and comfortable working environment with all controls, levers, switches and gauges positioned to maximize productivity.
VisibilityThere is unrestricted visibility to the drum and tire edge and to the side and rear of the machine.
HandrailsThe platform is enclosed by handrails and features angled foot rests for sure footing and support when working on a grade.
Padfoot Drum and Scrapers
Padfoot drum provides superior performance when compacting semi-cohesive or cohesive materials.
ScrapersHeavy-duty scrapers mounted on the front and rear of the drum yoke are individually adjustable and replaceable. The scrapers help to reduce excessive material build up between the pads.
PadsThe padfoot drum has 140 pads. The pads are tapered to help clean themselves.
The CP533E Soil Compactor provides the exceptional reliability and serviceability that you've come to expect from Caterpillar.
Visual IndicatorsVisual indicators allow easy check of the engine coolant, hydraulic oil tank level and air filter restriction.
Operator's Station Tilts ForwardThe operator's station tilts forward to allow convenient access to the hydraulic pumps.
Rear Mounted Cooling SystemA rear mounted cooling system provides easy access for cleaning. Hydraulic oil cooler tilts rearward for additional access to the radiator.
Sealed-for-life BearingsSealed-for-life bearings in the articulation hitch eliminate the need for greasing or maintenance.
500 Hour Engine Oil Change Interval500 hour engine oil change interval.
Vibratory Bearing Lube Service3 year/3000 hour vibratory bearing lube service interval for reduced maintenance.
Ecology DrainsEcology drains provide an environmental method to drain fluids. They are included on the radiator, engine oil pan, hydraulic and fuel tanks.
Secure Hose RoutingSecure hose routing with polyethylene mounting blocks reduce rubbing and increase service life.
Electrical System IntegrityNylon braided-wrap and all-weather connectors ensure electrical system integrity. Electrical wiring is color-coded, numbered and labeled with component identifiers to simplify troubleshooting.
