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 1978, the 826 has been the industry leader for over 35 years. Focused on helping our customers succeed, we have continued to build upon each new series. The 826K continues our legacy of reliability, performance, safety, operator comfort, serviceability, and efficiency.

POWERFUL EFFICIENCY
  • Eco Mode allows the machine to go into auto shift mode when not operating at maximum torque, optimizing performance and saving fuel.
  • The left 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
  • Single Clutch Speed Shifting (SCSS) delivers consistent, smooth shifting and efficiency.
  • Strategic use of metallurgy and heat treating ensures long-life gears.
  • The Cat C15 engine is designed for maximum fuel efficiency and increased power density.
  • Two engine options are available to meet Tier 4 Final/Stage IV or Tier 3/Stage IIIA equivalent emission standards. (depending upon market).
WHEEL TIPS BUILT TO PERFORM
  • New long-life paddle and plus design tip options.
  • Up to 40% longer life.
  • Purpose designed for landfils.
  • Improved machine performance.
  • Improved traction.
  • Select paddle tip for traction and fuel economy.
  • Select plus tip for increased side-slope stability.
OPERATOR COMFORT AND CONTROL
  • Pressurized cab sits on isolation mounts improving comfort and reducing sound.
  • Cab features a convenient floor storage tray/lunch box.
  • Cat Comfort Series III Seat includes mid-back design, thick, contoured cushions, air suspension, six-way adjustments, and a seat-mounted implement pod and STIC steer that moves with the seat for optimal control.
PRODUCTIVITY WITH TECHNOLOGY
  • Cat Compaction Control system uses Machine Drive Power (MDP) technology to measure rolling resistance and correlates it with landfill compaction. 3D mapping indicates where to work and when layers are at optimum density. The system eliminates voids, optimizes cell space and documents results.
BUILT-IN SAFETY FEATURES
  • Railings, ladders and non-slip surfaces enhance technician and operator safety.
  • Rearview camera with in-cab monitor increases operator awareness around the machine.
  • Reduced vibrations to the operator with isolated cab mounts and seat mounted implement and steering controls.

  • Reduce waste to the environment with maintenance-free batteries.
  • The 826K is built to be rebuilt, maximizing machine life, and minimizing environmental impact. Get the most from your investment, with our sustainable options including Cat Reman and Certified Rebuild programs. With these programs, remanufactured components deliver cost savings of 40 to 70 percent, lowering operating costs while also reducing waste and minimizing the need for raw materials.
