Overview

The Cat® CS13 GC Vibratory Soil Compactors are ideally suited for granular soil applications or cohesive soil applications with the use of an optional padfoot shell kit. A reliable vibratory system, exceptional operator comfort and ease of use deliver dependable, economical production with performance that exceeds expectations.

Reliable Power
        
  • A single propel pump design delivers excellent gradeability.

  • Powered by a Cat® C3.6 engine that meets U.S. EPA Tier 4 Final, EU Stage V and Korea Stage V emission standards.
  •     
  • Eco-mode limits engine RPM helping to reduce fuel consumption.
Comfortable and Ergonomic Operator Station
        
  • The ISO-mounted operator station and rubber floormats help reduce noise and vibration for comfort during operation.
  •     
  • Easy to use controls are grouped by function and a large display informs operators of machine performance.
  •     
  • The seat, armrest and steering column are adjustable for all-day comfort.
Safety Features
        
  • Angled steps, handrails, and an antiskid surface help provide stability during entry and exit of the operator station. 
  •     
  • Internal and external mirrors are available to provide the operator with a broad view of the jobsite.
  •     
  • Enhance visibility with an optional rear vision camera with large color touchscreen display for more complete operator control and safety.
Excellent Compaction Performance
        
  • Exclusive eccentric weight design provides high reliability, smooth performance and low noise with a 3-year, 3000-hour maintenance interval.
  •     
  • High static linear loads and amplitudes.
  •     
  • The Auto-vibe function makes it easy to ensure consistent, high-quality compaction.
Enhance Quality and Productivity with Technology
        
  • Optional Cat Compact technologies help you consistently meet compaction targets faster, more uniformly, and in fewer passes – saving on fuel and reducing rework and material costs. 
  •     
  • Exclusive Machine Drive Power (MDP) is an energy-based measurement and can be used on all soil types in either static or vibratory mode. 
Virtually Maintenance Free
        
  • Maintenance-free hitch with sealed-for-life bearings.
  •     
  • Ground-level access to all maintenance points for easy service and fluid sampling.
  •     
  • Monitor fluid conditions with regular sampling to help extend change intervals up to 500 hours engine oil, 3000 hours eccentric housing and hydraulic oil, and 12000 hours coolant.
Sustainability
        
  • The Cat C3.6 is available in configurations that meet U.S. EPA Tier 4 Final, EU Stage V and Korea Stage V emission standards.
  •     
  • Cat diesel engines are required to use ULSD (ultra-low sulfur diesel fuel with 15 ppm of sulfur or less) or ULSD blended with the following lower-carbon intensity fuels* up to: 20% biodiesel FAME (fatty acid methyl ester) or 100% renewable diesel, HVO (hydrotreated vegetable oil) and GTL (gas-to-liquid) fuels Refer to guidelines for successful application. Please consult your Cat dealer or "Caterpillar Machine Fluids Recommendations" (SEBU6250) for details.
        *Tailpipe greenhouse gas emissions from lower-carbon intensity fuels are essentially the same as traditional fuels.

  • Easy to use controls are grouped by function and a large display informs operators of machine performance.
  •     
  • The seat, armrest and steering column are adjustable for all-day comfort.
  •     
  • Operators are protected from the elements by a standard equipped ROPS/FOPS canopy or an optional climate-controlled ROPS/FOPS cab with hinged glass windows.
  •     
  • Cab configurations can be upgraded to a deluxe high back air-ride seat to enhance operator comfort. 
Safety Features
        
  • Angled steps, handrails, and an antiskid surface help provide stability during entry and exit of the operator station. 
  •     
  • Internal and external mirrors are available to provide the operator with a broad view of the jobsite.

  •     
  • The Auto-vibe function makes it easy to ensure consistent, high-quality compaction.
  •     
  • Increase machine versatility with the addition of an oval or square padfoot shell kit, allowing your smooth drum machine to compact semi-cohesive and cohesive materials.
  •     
  • An optional MicroVibe™ drum configuration provides a lower range of amplitude than the standard drum for vibration-sensitive applications.
Enhance Quality and Productivity with Technology
        
  • Optional Cat Compact technologies help you consistently meet compaction targets faster, more uniformly, and in fewer passes – saving on fuel and reducing rework and material costs. 
  •     
  • Exclusive Machine Drive Power (MDP) is an energy-based measurement and can be used on all soil types in either static or vibratory mode. 
  •     
  • Compaction Meter Value (CMV) is an accelerometer-based measurement for granular soils, measuring only when the vibratory system is active. 
Virtually Maintenance Free
        
  • Maintenance-free hitch with sealed-for-life bearings.
  •     
  • Ground-level access to all maintenance points for easy service and fluid sampling.
  •     
  • Monitor fluid conditions with regular sampling to help extend change intervals up to 500 hours engine oil, 3000 hours eccentric housing and hydraulic oil, and 12000 hours coolant.
  •     
  • Extended maintenance intervals not only reduce downtime but decrease the amount of fluid and filters that are replaced over the life of the machine.
  •     
  • VisionLink® takes the guesswork out of managing your entire fleet–regardless of size or equipment manufacturer*–by providing maintenance needs, machine hours, location, fuel usage, idle time, diagnostic codes, and more through interactive dashboards on your mobile device or desktop, helping you make informed decisions that lower costs, simplify maintenance, and improve safety and security on your jobsite. 
  •     
  • Remote Flash allows you to update onboard software without a technician being present, allowing you to initiate software updates when convenient, increasing your overall operating efficiency**

        *Tailpipe greenhouse gas emissions from lower-carbon intensity fuels are essentially the same as traditional fuels.
  •     
  • Auto engine idle shutdown helps reduce unnecessary fuel burn and greenhouse gas emissions by allowing the engine to automatically go into idle mode when the machine is not working.
  •     
  • A well-trained operator is worth the investment. Skilled operators benefit your bottom line by maximizing productivity, avoiding costly downtime, and maintaining jobsite safety - which can help to improve fuel efficiency and reduce greenhouse gas emissions.
  •     
  • Extended maintenance intervals not only reduce downtime but can decrease the amount of fluid and filters that are replaced over the life of the machine. Extend change intervals up to 500 hours engine oil, 3000 hours eccentric housing and hydraulic oil, and 12000 hours coolant.
  •     
  • Performance and safety can be augmented with standard and optional cameras that are viewed on in-cab displays.
  •     
  • Cat Compact technologies help you consistently meet compaction targets faster, more uniformly, and in fewer passes - saving on fuel and reducing rework and material costs.
  •     
  • Cat Scheduled Oil Sampling (S•O•S℠) Services helps reveal excessive wear, contaminated fluids or other "unseen" issues that can shorten component life. In many cases, you can extend oil and coolant change intervals by using fluid monitoring. Consult your Cat dealer or the machine's operation and maintenance manual for more information.
