816 Landfill Compactor

816 Landfill Compactor

Overview

Cat Landfill Compactors are designed with durability built in, ensuring maximum availability through multiple life cycles. With optimized performance and simplified serviceability, our machines allow you to operate more efficiently and safely. Introduced in 1972, the 816 has been the industry leader for over 45 years. Focused on helping our customers succeed, we have continued to build upon each new series. The 816 continues our legacy of reliability, performance, safety, operator comfort, serviceability, and efficiency.

OPERATOR COMFORT AND CONTROL
  • Improved ingress/egress with a totally redesigned cab with flip up armrest.
  • Keep your operators informed about machine conditions and operation with VIMS™ 3G machine monitoring system.
  • Safety and visibility enhanced with standard rearview camera.
  • Preferred temperature settings maintained with automatic climate control.
TOP-TIER SERVICE AND SUPPORT
  • Easier access and in a controlled environment; electronics bay is located inside the cab.
  • Focused on safety with ground level or platform access to most major components.
  • Ground level: emergency shutdown, battery disconnect, and jump start.
  • Quick visual inspection and minimize fluid contamination with sight gauges for coolant, transmission, and hydraulic oil.
POWERFUL EFFICIENCY
  • Reliable performance, long life, low emissions.
  • High productivity and fuel efficient.
  • Two engine options available that meet U.S. EPA Tier 4 Final and EU Stage V emission standards or U.S. EPA Tier 3 and EU Stage IIIA equivalent.
  • For the Tier 4 Final and Stage V option, the Cat Clean Emissions Module contains a diesel oxidation catalyst, diesel particulate filter, and Cat Regeneration System, utilizing SCR technology.
PRODUCTIVITY WITH TECHNOLOGY
  • Compact technology combines advanced compaction measurement, in-cab guidance, and reporting capabilities to help you consistently meet compaction targets fast, uniformly, and in fewer passes – saving on fuel and the cost of unnecessary rework.
    -Optional 3D mapping system available
  • Link technology (standard) provides access to machine location, hours, fuel consumption, idle time, events, and diagnostic codes through the online VisionLink® interface.
WHEEL TIPS BUILT TO PERFORM
  • Designed specifically to complement Cat machines.
  • Improves machine performance through longer wear life and maintaining traction.
  • Three wheel and tip configurations are available to meet your
  • particular application:
    1) Paddle Tip – High performance and less fuel burn with more traction and less weight.
    2) Plus Tip – Traditional design for increased side slope stability.
    3) Combination Tip – Both paddle and plus tips provide the best compromise of performance and fuel economy with side slope stability.

  • Reliable performance, long life, low emissions.
  • High productivity and fuel efficient.
  • Two engine options available that meet U.S. EPA Tier 4 Final and EU Stage V emission standards or U.S. EPA Tier 3 and EU Stage IIIA equivalent.
  • For the Tier 4 Final and Stage V option, the Cat Clean Emissions Module contains a diesel oxidation catalyst, diesel particulate filter, and Cat Regeneration System, utilizing SCR technology.
  • Regeneration is completely automatic and does not interrupt the machine’s work cycle.
  • Experience maximum responsiveness and control with Steering and Transmission Integrated Control System (STIC™).
  • Conserve more fuel with the automatic engine and electrical system shutdown.
  • Achieve greater momentum on grades and fuel savings by carrying that momentum through the shift points with the all new Advanced Productivity Electronic Control System (APECS) transmission controls.
  • Operators experience less fatigue with throttle lock to maintain engine speed.
