Caterpillar’s new CB10 is a 10-metric-ton asphalt compactor that can be equipped with a combination of oscillatory and vibratory drums. The machine can be used for a wide range of applications from large expressway projects to smaller, urban work. The front drum utilizes vertical vibration that delivers the amplitudes and frequency options for thicker lifts and tough mix designs, while the oscillation system on the rear drum performs effectively on thin lifts and near sensitive structures such as buildings, bridge decks, and over underground utilities.

The design combines Caterpillar’s vertical vibration on the front drum with new oscillation technology on the rear drum. The front drum with vertical vibration is available in two amplitude, five amplitude, or Versa-Vibe systems that provides initial compaction, while the rear drum with oscillation continues the performance for optimal smoothness and density.

The oscillatory system utilizes the proven pod-style eccentric weight technology developed by Caterpillar and has a two-year/2,000 hour service interval that helps users maximize uptime and limit routine maintenance costs. A durable power-transmission employs a unique belt-drive system that delivers two times the load capacity of timing belt systems for more reliable operation. In addition, the hardened drum shell offers long-term strength on a variety of mix designs.
