LANDFILL COMPACTORS THAT JUST WON'T QUIT

It doesn’t matter what you throw at them. Cat® K Series Landfill Compactors keep coming back for more. Hour after hour, day after day, they power through the toughest conditions with minimal downtime — compacting more trash, more efficiently, so you can get more out of your landfill. And one lifetime of smashing trash just isn’t enough. K Series compactors are purpose-built to be rebuilt one, two, three or more times. Because your work is their life’s work.

PERFORMANCE UNDER PRESSURE SINCE 1972

The 284hp (212 kW) 816K builds on a legacy established more than 45 years ago. It features a fuel-efficient Cat C7.1 ACERT™ engine, single-lever steering, pressurized cab and wheel/tip options that extend service life.
