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 40 years. Focused on helping our customers succeed, we have continued to build upon each new series. The 816K continues our legacy of reliability, performance, safety, operator comfort, serviceability, and efficiency.

POWERFUL EFFICIENCY
  • Advanced Productivity Electronic Control System (APECS) delivers improved transmission shifting performance and a higher level of comfort for operators.
  • Decelerator pedal acts as a brake, transmission neutralizer and an engine decelerator to override the engine speed selected by the throttle lock. Allows the operator to slow speeds when the throttle lock is engaged and to return to throttle lock without pressing a resume or set button.
LONG TERM VALUE AND DURABILITY
  • Designed and made with purpose-built structures to remain safe and durable for the long run.
  • Long-life-designs, materials and robotic welding ensure multiple life cycles and ability to withstand the toughest conditions.
  • Full box-section rear frame resists torsional shock and twisting forces.
PERFORMANCE WITH LESS FUEL
  • Advanced Productivity Electronic Control System (APECS) delivers consistent, smooth shifting and efficiency through integrated electronic controls.
  • Strategic use of metallurgy and heat treating ensures long-life gears.
  • The Cat C7.1 engine is designed for maximum fuel efficiency and increased power density.
WHEEL TIPS BUILT TO PERFORM
