Overview

Reliable Power Train

The CS74B provides exceptional performance for granular soil compaction applications.

Benefits

Lower Operating Cost

Up to 15% fuel savings with eco-mode, exclusive pod-style vibratory design offering 3 year/3000 hour service intervals, and a no-maintenance hitch with sealed-for-life bearings.

Up To 50% More Efficient

On-board compaction measurement helps take guesswork out of the process with exclusive MDP technology that gives compaction readings; scalable solutions including mapping and machine-to-machine communication keep jobsite connected.

Enhanced Operator Comfort

Visibility is enhanced by the new rear vision camera; standard tiltable steering column gives the operator more flexibility, and our integrated backlit display console turns with seat.

  • Cat Compact with Compaction Meter Value (CMV)

    Compaction Meter Value is an accelerometer-based system that provides an indication of material stiffness. The system is available on smooth drum vibratory soil compactors and tandem vibratory asphalt compactors. It measures only when the vibratory system is active, and provides a unitless value calculation derived from the recorded data that indicates composite stiffness.

  • Cat Compact with Machine Drive Power (MDP)

    Cat Compact with Machine Drive Power (MDP) is an energy-based measurement system that correlates compaction with rolling resistance to provide an indication of soil stiffness. An optional mapping system helps operators visualize work as it occurs.
