Waste Protection

Waste resistant designs and features on the 836H combine to reduce production-robbing buildup of refuse and provide added cooling capacity by preventing debris from entering the engine compartment.

Landfill Features

The Cat Axle Guard System along with several blades to match your site requirements - from spreading layers of refuse to dozing and clearing a dumping area.

Power Train

The Cat C18 MEUI engine with ACERT® Technology is U.S. EPA/EU Stage III compliant. This, the Cat planetary power shift transmission and Impeller Clutch Torque Converter with lockup clutch provide improved rimpull control for precise and efficient operation.

Wheels and Tips

Cat wheels are designed for high performance and to complement the Cat Axle Guard System and power train. Equipped with Plus Tips or chopper blades, the 836H provides productive and efficient compaction, as well as excellent traction and sidehill stability on sloped material.


The 836H uses electro-hydraulics for ease of operation and operator comfort. The new Automatic Blade Positioning helps to improve machine productivity.

Operator Controls

Experience a high level of efficiency and comfort with a state-of-the-art cab. Reduced sound levels, excellent ventilation, spaciousness and finger-tip blade controls all translate into increased productivity.

Operator Station

The 836H cab design promotes productivity and operator comfort. The cab includes an excellent viewing area and ventilation, intermittent wet-arm wipers, ergonomic design and control placement and is radio ready for two-way radios.


Many convenient service features such as hinged service doors, easily accessible scheduled maintenance points, conveniently located sight gauges and a separated cooling system make servicing easy. Service has been improved with new transmission remote pressure taps.
