The CCS7 is a 7 metric ton vibratory combination compactor that combines the smooth front drum of a soil compactor, with smooth rear tires similar to a pneumatic compactor. In addition, the water spray system utilized on Cat® Asphalt Compactors keeps the drum and tires wet for excellent performance on asphalt. It offers outstanding operator comfort while continuing the legacy of durability, reliability and ease-of-service that contractors worldwide have come to expect from Caterpillar machines.
Touch pad machine functions enable the operator to fine tune engine speed control, travel speed, and water spray intervals for efficient operation.
Intuitive LCD Display
Easily monitor machine operating conditions including; travel speed, vibrations per minute, fuel level, operating temperature, and machine diagnostics. The display is backlit for easy viewing in various lighting conditions.
The Cat C3.4B engine with ACERT™ technology offers enhanced efficiency, better serviceability, ample power, and low sound levels. It provides 75 kW (100 hp) of power and utilizes the building blocks of ACERT technology in order to meet emission standards. This innovative combination yields cleaner combustion and delivers steady power in all operating conditions with optimal fuel efficiency.
Eco-mode helps to economize the use of fuel. When the machine idles for a predetermined amount of time, Eco-mode is engaged and the engine rpm is lowered. When the propel lever is engaged, higher engine speeds resume. For certain applications, Eco-mode can be engaged to operate the engine at lower rpm than normal. The lower engine speed results in less fuel burn. Eco-mode can also be programmed to shut down the engine after a user-defined amount of time.
Automatic Speed Control
Automatic Speed Control is a feature that allows the operator to select a maximum working speed. Once selected, the speed can consistently be reached by engaging the propel lever to the full stroke. Consistent speed contributes to compaction quality by making it easier to maintain compaction uniformity.
A single switch enables the operator to choose between two amplitudes for easy thin lift or thick lift operation. The thick lift setting delivers an amplitude of 0.92 mm (0.036 in), while the thin lift setting delivers 0.37 mm (0.014 in).
Optional Temperature Sensors
Optional Infra-red sensors enable operators to easily monitor surface temperatures to help determine when to begin and when to end the compaction process. The upper temperature limit for compaction is about 160 degrees C (320 degrees F), while the lower limit is about 90 degrees C (190 degrees F).
Automatic Vibratory Control
An auto-vibe function is tailored to activate or deactivate the vibratory system based on the propel lever position in order to prevent over compaction when making starts and stops.
The water tank capacity for the drum is 400 L (88 gal), while the wheel spray tank capacity is 18 L (4 gal). Dual pumps alternate with the direction of travel in order to optimize the service life of each pump.
High Flow Design
Dual spray bars and evenly spaced nozzles help ensure that the drum stays wet, even in the harshest conditions.
Triple filtration with filters located in the tank fill port, before the water pump and in the spray nozzles help provide reliable performance.
Long service intervals contribute to more productivity and lower owning and operating costs. The vibratory system scheduled oil change interval is 3 years/3,000 hours. The hydraulic oil service interval is 3,000 hours. Engine oil service is every 500 hours.
Tilting Cooling System
The cooling system tilts for easy cleaning. Normal cleaning ensures that the cooling systems protects the engine to full capacity.
