Exceptional Visibility and Control

The B-Series Tandem Vibratory Rollers offer unobstructed sight lines with standard 180° seat positioning for excellent all-around visibility. Also, drum edge and drum surface lighting provide better lighting for nighttime operation. The innovative handwheel steering technology eliminates the front console that is commonly found on other machines for precise machine control.

Vibratory System Choices

Cat Tandem Vibratory Rollers quickly reach target densities due to their versatile frequency and amplitude selections. These powerful rollers provide finesse when necessary due to their flexible front or rear drum only vibratory capability. This machine offers vibratory choices to match your amplitude and frequency requirements. It performs particularly well in high-production applications. It provides high amplitudes for breakdown and intermediate work, while its high static linear load delivers excellent results for finishing work.

Cat Compaction Control

The optional Cat Compaction Control helps contractors increase efficiency and productivity while recording data for quality control documentation and future planning.

Smooth Operating Powertrain

The B-Series tandem rollers are powered by Cat engines with ACERT™ Technology. The engine includes a variety of features that help reduce fuel burn, including Eco-mode, yet still deliver the power required on challenging jobsites. Tough components help extend compactor life.
