Offering high static linear load and more weight at the drum for compaction, the new series consists of the 10-ton CS10 GC, 11-ton CS11 GC and CP11 GC, and 12-ton CS12 GC and CP12 GC. With both smooth (CS) and padfoot (CP) drum models available for compaction of granular and cohesive soils, the new models are aimed at road building, site preparation, large residential construction, large earth fill, and agriculture applications.
The Cat GC Series vibratory soil compactors are powered by the 120.7-horsepower Cat C3.6 diesel engine that meets Tier 4-F emission standards. Standard Eco-Mode operation reduces engine speed to 2,000 rpm to deliver up to 10 percent fuel savings over operation at high idle, Cat says.
Easy-to-select speed control offers one-button switching from working to travel speed. The compactors’ single propel pump with limited slip differential rear axle deliver expectation-exceeding gradeability up to 55 percent for the 10- and 11-ton models and up to 50 percent for 12-ton models. All compactors feature a low overall 9.8-foot height plus improved tie-down locations for fast, low-cost transport that meets market regulations.
The Cat GC Series vibratory soil compactors feature the Cat exclusive pod-style vibration system, providing a 3-year/3,000-hour service interval. Providing more weight at the drum than the B Series, these new models offer high compaction performance. Dual amplitude and frequency increase compaction versatility of the new line, and a single button allows the operator to quickly change from high to low amplitude.
