Exceptional Visibility and Control

The CB8 Tandem Vibratory Roller offers unobstructed sight lines with standard 180° seat positioning for excellent 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 also provide finesse when necessary due to their flexible front or rear drum only vibratory capability. Options include dual amplitude/dual frequency and five amplitude systems.

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 CB8 tandem roller is powered by a Cat® engine 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.
