Overview

MDP - Machine Drive Power is an energy-based measurement system that correlates compaction with rolling resistance to provide an indication of soil stiffness. The system is for use on all Cat® compactors over 10 metric tons: smooth drum (CS) or padfoot (CP), or smooth drum models with padfoot shell kits. It is suitable for granular and cohesive soil applications and measures to the depth of an average lift of 30-60 cm (12-24 in). Measurements can be made with the vibratory system active or inactive.

Consistent quality

  • Empowers operator to determine when compaction meets target value and move on to the next job, preventing unnecessary passes.

Optimizes efficiency

  • By continuously monitoring soil response, operator can determine when compaction meets target value and move on to the next job, preventing unnecessary passes

Wider range of applications

Can be used on more soil types and can be used with the vibratory system on or off
