Tandem Vibratory Rollers

Compacting to specifications is critical for soil, landfill, and paving applications. Cat compactors are specifically designed for all compaction operations.

CB2.9 Utility Compactor

The CB2.9 is a versatile machine that can be used as the only vibratory roller on small sized jobs or on larger jobs as a support roller for high-production rollers. It provides greater production capabilities with its 1300 mm (51") wide drums. Its high amplitude and drum width give it the capacity to achieve a tons-per-day production rate that make it an excellent match for shoulders, small parking lots, lane additions or other similar sized jobs.

Simple Operation

The operating environment offers improved comfort and visibility. The narrow frame design and contoured engine hood provide good visibility to the drum edges and front of the machine. The intuitive control panel utilizes an analog display and toggle-type switches for easy operation.

Intuitive Controls

Intuitive, multi-function control panel with vandal protection enables good performance. Easy viewing analog display and vibrant LED lights on the control panel simplify operation in both day and night operation. The integrated vandal cover provides protection.

Analog Display

The analog display provides quick reference to fuel level, coolant temperature, and hour meter.

Nighttime Operation

Roading and working lights include front lights with turn signals, a single rear working light with turn signals, and a warning beacon.

Foldable ROPS and Canopy

Powerful lift cylinders enable a single person to raise and lower without the use of tools. A fixed ROPS is also available. The foldable canopy is compatible with the foldable ROPS.

Efficient Compaction Performance

The vibratory system is equipped with two frequencies and single amplitude that provide lower sound levels and job site versatility. A 40 mm (1.5”) drum offset feature enhances control near curbs and obstacles while providing more coverage.

Vibratory Drums

The vibratory system is equipped with automatic vibration de-activation when the propel lever is in the neutral position. Vibration is available on front only or both drums. The exclusive eccentric weight shaft delivers quick starting and stopping times and a bearing service interval of 3 years or 3000 hours.

Frequency Selection

Two frequency selections deliver excellent compaction performance and low sound levels. Selections of 60 Hz (3,600 vpm), 48 Hz (2,880 vpm) are available.

Drum Offset Capability

A 40 mm (1.5“) drum offset capability enhances control near curbs and offers more coverage.

Best_In_Class Water Spray System

More coverage, and easier access summarizes the water spray system on Cat Utility Compactors resulting is less material pickup, and increased uptime for your crew.

Performance Enhancing Features

The protected spray bar is designed to fight winds, while a low water level indicator keeps the operator informed. A single water tank with a capacity of 200 L (53 gallons) provides more hours of operation between refills. The intermittent and continuous modes increase control and efficiency. Triple filtration in the tank, before the water pump, and in spray nozzles provides reliability. A single point drain and filter simplifies service.

Spring Loaded Scrapers

Spring loaded scrapers keep the drums clean and distribute water evenly for reduced consumption. Robust, retractable hinges help maintain contact with the drum and retract when roading to reduce unnecessary wear. Scrapers are located at the front and rear of each drum.

Optimized Power

Cat engines are the power behind Cat Utility Compactors. Optimized engine power provides the push you need on any project grade.

Powerful Cat Engines

An electronic control module (ECM) helps enable steady operation. The Cat C1.5 engine includes an electric fuel-transfer pump and fuel tank sized for 8-12 hours of runtime. Two engine speed settings enable operators to customize to the specific application and environment.

Traction Control

A traction control option is available in a pin-on design that offers quick installation. Field retrofitting can be completed in an hour.

High Ambient Cooling

The cooling system provides ambient capability of 49°C (120°F) @ 80 percent load. The hydraulically driven fan motor enables variable speeds and reduces sound levels.

Designed For Rental

Simple operation with toggle-type switches, effortless starting, and good sight lines are just a few of the qualities that make this machine operator friendly. These features combined with simple diagnostics, unobstructed service access, and easy transport, make this machine a perfect fit for the rental market.
