Caterpillar is changing the nomenclature of its vibratory soil compactor range to feature weight-based names.
To correlate with the GC models in the compaction product line, all soil compactor models will feature weight-based names derived from the metric tonnage class in which the model competes.
As well, the model series descriptor letter suffix will be removed.
The Caterpillar vibratory soil compactor line includes smooth and padfoot drum designs offering compaction widths ranging from 127 cm to 213 cm.
Durable and reliable, the rollers deliver high compaction performance, speed and gradeability to maximize productivity on a range of soil types and applications.
The updated vibratory soil compactor models include:
The Cat CS79B becomes the Cat CS20 The Cat CS10 GC, CS11 GC and CP11 GC vibratory soil compactors retain their current nomenclature.
The updated vibratory soil compactor models include the following:
