Caterpillar expands its 2- to 5-tonne product offering by introducing 10 new tandem and combination utility compactors. The new line includes weight-based model nomenclature changes with the new Cat CB2.5/CB2.5 GC, CB2.7/CB2.7 GC, CC2.7/CC2.7 GC, CB2.9, CB4.0, CC4.0, and CB4.4. These rollers take on a range of soil and asphalt applications, including parking lots, driveways, urban streets, landscaping, and small construction sites.

The new models are built for power and production. The powerful Cat C1.7T engine meets U.S. EPA Tier 4 Final emission standards. Advanced hydraulics and power management software deliver performance on grades, while their new auto idle shutdown feature helps to conserve fuel and hours.

Powered by a turbocharged Cat C1.7T engine rated at 24.6 hp, the CB2.5 GC, CB2.7 GC and CC2.7 models meet Tier 4 Final emission standards without an aftertreatment system, simplifying maintenance and lowering service costs. These models excel in low- to medium-grade applications like driveways and parking lots.

Offering compaction widths from 39 to 54 inches, all new Cat utility compactors feature large drum diameters for a smooth mat finish and thick drum shells for added durability. The rollers’ 2-inch drum offset improves compaction efficiency when rolling next to curbs. A narrow frame design allows for improved visibility to the job surface and drum edge. Optional compaction measurement value (CMV) displays measured material stiffness to the operator, improving compaction performance, eliminating unnecessary passes, and improving consistency.
