Positive amplitude selection is accomplished when the spherical steel shot is repositioned inside the hollow eccentric weight. Direction of weight shaft rotation determines amplitude level.
Control is simplified from the operator's station with a selection switch on the operator's console.
The proprietary eccentric weights offer high reliability since there is no chance of the high-strength spherical steel shot welding together. System reliability is superior to swinging mechanical weights and is also quieter during starts and stops.
The proprietary eccentric weights offer long service life. There are no heavy weights to slam together and no metal fragments to contaminate the bearing lubrication system.
The C3.4B engine is certified to meet U.S. EPA Tier 4 Final and European EU Stage IV emission standards.
When engaged, Eco-mode reduces the operating speed of the engine to a lower rate, which reduces fuel consumption. Eco-mode is suitable for most normal applications. When more engine power is required, Eco-mode can be disabled.
The dual propel pumps provide separate, balanced flow to the rear wheel axle and the drum drive motors. Provides high gradeability and increases tractive effort in loose or poor underfoot conditions.
Limited Slip Differential
The limited slip differential provides balanced tractive effort and smooth torque transfer to both rear wheels.
Two Speed Ranges
The dual pump propel system offers two speed ranges for versatile operation. Low speed range for vibratory operation and maximum torque when climbing grades. High speed range moves the machine quickly over longer distances.
Flushing valves in each propel circuit help keep hydraulic oil cool and clean for maximum system efficiency.
The two propel pump system has dedicated pumps to drive the heavy-duty, high-torque rear wheel and drum motors independently. Should the drum or wheels begin to spin, there is always hydraulic flow to the non-spinning motor, allowing continuous tractive effort. This is especially useful in loose underfoot conditions.
Controllability is another feature of dual propel pumps. The operator is able to stop, maintain machine position and change directions while on a grade.
The CP44B provides high productivity when working on more demanding grades. These machines are very effective in trench applications.
The open platform of the CP44B offers a spacious and comfortable working environment with all controls, levers, switches and gauges positioned to maximize productivity.
The open platform offers unrestricted visibility to the drum and tire edge and to the side and rear of the machine.
Handrails and Foot Rests
The platform is enclosed by handrails and features foot rests for sure footing and support when working on a grade.
Standard equipment includes a rotating, adjustable seat with integrated operators console and LCD display, two front-facing and two rear-facing working lights, handrails with footrests, a lockable vandalism guard and a rear view mirror.
The steering console is adjustable within the tilt range to the desired position of the operator or for simple entrance and exit. Integrated cupholders provide a convenient and secure place to put beverage containers.
Operator'c Console with Integrated LCD Display
The operator's console is integrated with the operator's seat. The console includes a control keypad that is backlit to enable low light operation. The console also houses the propel lever and an integrated LCD display that functions as a gauge cluster as well as a diagnostics center.
Single Lever Control
Single lever control for propel and vibratory On/Off provides simple and low effort operation.
The comfortable and durable seat has adjustable fore/aft position, bottom cushion height, suspension stiffness. The seat rotates to the right 20 degrees from center to provide greater comfort during operation. The seat is equipped with a seat belt.
Isolated Operator's Station
The operator's station is isolated with heavy-duty rubber mounts reducing machine vibration transmitted to the operator.
A floor mat helps further isolate the operator from machine vibration and noise.
A visual indicators allows easy check of the hydraulic oil tank level.
Air Restriction Sensor
Sensors detect when air restriction occurs and alerts the operator via the LCD display on the operator's console.
Rear Mounted Cooling System
The rear mounted cooling system provides easy access for cleaning. The hydraulic oil cooler tilts rearward for additional access to the radiator.
Sealed-for-life bearings in the articulation hitch never need to be greased.
500 hour engine oil change interval.
500 hour engine oil change interval.
Vibratory System Lubrication Service
A 3 year/3000 hour vibratory bearing lube service interval reduces maintenance.
Hydraulic System Oil Service
A 3 year/3000 hour Hydraulic System oil service interval reduces maintenance.
Quick Connect Hydraulic Test Ports
Quick connect hydraulic test ports simplify system diagnostics.
Provide a method to drain fluids that is more environmentally safe. They are included on the radiator, engine oil pan, hydraulic tank and fuel tank.
S•O•S (Scheduled Oil Sampling) ports
S•O•S ports allow for simple fluid collection of engine oil, engine coolant and hydraulic oil.
Secure Hose Routing
Hose routing is secured with polyethylene routing blocks to reduce rubbing and increase service life.
Electrical System Integrity
Nylon braided wrap and all-weather connectors ensure electrical system integrity. Electrical wiring is color-coded, numbered and labeled with component identifiers to simplify troubleshooting.
Maintenance-free Cat Batteries
Maintenance-free Cat batteries are mounted in the rear of the machine and are protected by the engine hood. Cat batteries are specifically designed for maximum cranking power and protection against vibration.
Product Link Wire-ready
The CP44B is Product Link wire-ready. Product Link System ensures maximum uptime and minimum repair costs by simplifying tracking of equipment fleets. The system provides automatic machine location and hour updates. The system can be obtained through your local Cat dealer.
