Landfill space is expensive and finite. The more compaction and density you can achieve in your landfill, the greater your profit will be. Similarly, the more time, rework, damage and risk you can remove from your process, the more control you will have over unnecessary costs.
Cat® equipment, combined with computing, communications, imaging and global positioning satellite technology, can help you achieve up to 30% - 35% greater landfill compaction, as well as greater machine health and worker safety.
- CAES (Computer Aided Earthmoving System) from Caterpillar, uses global navigation satellite systems to show your machine operators color-coded images of their position and compaction progress in real time, eliminating wasted air space and rework.
- AccuGrade is a GPS technology used in the creation of critically accurate slopes and grades in landfill construction, lifts and capping.
- Other Cat technologies that contribute to greater levels of work efficiency, machine health and crew safety include ProductLink, which monitors machine health and alerts operators and service personnel to essential maintenance issues, and WAVS (Work Area Vision System) a remarkable self-cleaning video system that helps eliminate blind-zone accidents and damage.
