Trash Protection and Cooling System

Numerous standard trash resistant features including our proven axle guard system and a sheet metal hood design combine with the Next Generation Modular Radiator to reduce production-robbing trash build-up and provide added cooling capacity.

Tips and Wheels

Caterpillar designed and manufactured steel wheels match the power train for the durability you expect. These, combined with standard Plus Tips or chopper wheels, will provide excellent traction and sidehill stability to offer the most productive and efficient compaction.

Power Train

The Cat® C9 engine with ACERT™ Technology delivers maximum power and combines with the Electronic Clutch Pressure Control and planetary, powershift transmission to offer superior performance and reliability in landfill applications.
