Comfortable Operating Station
The machine controls and LCD display are integrated with the pivoting adjustable seat, and move with the operator. Seating options include vinyl for open-platform configurations and cloth for cab, both can be equipped with a heated option. An optional deluxe highback air-ride seat is also available. Other comfort features include a vibration-absorbing floor mat, 12-volt power receptacle, wide-width seat belt, cup holders and a lockable storage compartment.
The multi-function propel lever with integrated controls for water spray on/off, drum offset, vibratory control, and optional edge cutter height adjustment enables the operator to work with confidence.
The back-lit LCD display includes machine data and diagnostics. It is integrated with the seat, so it remains in the same position even as the seat pivots. A built-in lockable anti-vandalism cover offers protection. The display provides multiple language options, split-screen capability, and indicators for ground speed, vibrations per minute, and fuel level.
The console is integrated with the seat, providing fingertip access. Soft keys with tactile feel provide instant feedback to the operator for intuitive operation. The armrests are adjustable and can be tailored to the operator for additional comfort.
Cat Oscillation Technology combines standard vibration on the front drum with oscillatory vibration on the rear drum. The oscillation system performs effectively on thin lifts and near sensitive structures such as buildings, bridge decks, and over underground utilities. The design utilizes proven pod-style eccentric weights and has a 2 year, 2000 hour service interval. A durable power transmission employs a unique belt-drive design that delivers 2 times the load capacity of timing belt systems. A hardened drum shell option offers excellent long-term strength on a variety of mix designs.
Versa Vibe Vibratory System
The Versa Vibe vibratory system offers 2 machine in one. It offers two frequencies and four amplitudes for working on thick or thin lift applications. Two settings accomodate lighter hitting and higher working speeds, while 2 settings offer higher amplitudes for thick lifts and harsh mix designs.
Five Amplitude Vibratory System
The five amplitude system is a heavy hitter for thick lifts and tough mix designs. It utilizes a single frequency and five amplitudes that can easily be fine-tuned to match application requirements.
2-Amplitude and2-Frequency Vibratory System
The 2-amplitude and 2-frequency vibratory system can be tailored to thin and thick lifts. A single switch automatically matches amplitude and frequency for simple operation.
The vibratory systems offer multiple options that help fine-tune performance on thick challenging lifts. The automatic speed control feature makes it easier to maintain consistency and impact spacing requirements. Also, an auto vibe function helps prevent over-compaction and contributes to uniformity.
Dual infra-red sensors mounted on the front and rear of the machine deliver real-time readings that keep the operator informed of when to begin rolling and when to stop. This system helps operators avoid tender-zones that often occur in the 104º-110º C (219º-230º F) temperature range.
Pass-count mapping helps operators achieve target density and increase roller efficiency. The system records and monitors pass patterns in order to display coverage. The system also helps operators optimize drum overlap, simplify nighttime operation, eliminate second guessing and prevent incomplete passes such as stopping short.
Temperature mapping provides a visual readout of mat temperature in order to keep the machine in the proper temperature range. The system records and monitors temperature for future analysis of the proper temperature range.
Machine to Machine Communication
Machine to Machine Communication improves worksite efficiency by allowing operators to monitor fleet patterns. The system allows operators to monitor rolling patterns of other machine and pickup where they left off. It also simplifies night-time operation when lighting conditions make it difficult to see after the first pass.
Cat C4.4 Engine
The C4.4 engine provides 98 kW (131 hp) of power and meets emissions equivalent to U.S. EPA Tier 4 Interim and EU Stage IIIB emission requirements. It features an electronic control module (ECM), providing optimal performance through precisely synchronized timing and fuel delivery. The ECM enables advanced troubleshooting and diagnostic capabilities using Electronic Technician (Cat ET). Cat dealers are the single-source providers of all machine and engine warranty service.
High Capacity Cooling System
The large capacity cooling system keeps the operating temperatures low, even in extreme conditions. The high capacity fan directs warm air away from the operator for a more comfortable operating environment.
