Caterpillar simplifies Soil Compactor Nomenclature

Caterpillar has launched an initiative to simplify nomenclature for select models in the Cat® vibratory soil compactor range.

To correlate with the GC models in the compaction product family, all models within the soil compactor line will feature weight-based names derived from the metric tonnage class in which the model competes. Additionally, the model series descriptor letter suffix will be removed.

The Cat vibratory soil compactor line includes smooth and padfoot drum designs offering compaction widths ranging from 50 to 84 inches (1270 to 2134 mm). Durable and reliable, the rollers deliver high compaction performance, speed and gradeability to maximize productivity on a range of soil types and applications.
