Yes, I would like to receive future marketing communications (such as email) from Caterpillar Inc., its affiliates and subsidiaries worldwide and the Caterpillar dealer network. Regardless of whether you decide to receive these marketing communications, Caterpillar will continue to send service/transactional messages, including those that have to do with any accounts that you may have with us.


Compaction Algorithm for Landfill Compactors combines advanced compaction measurement, in-cab guidance for operators and reporting capabilities for managers. The system includes a Global Navigation Satellite System (GNSS) receiver on top of the cab and mapping display inside the cab.

You can map pass counts (low accuracy) or both pass counts and elevation (high accuracy), depending on your desired configuration. Either option is ready to go on Cat K Series compactors direct from the factory.

The high accuracy Pass Count and Elevation Mapping helps the operator visualize the work as it occurs, ensures that the compactor covers the entire jobsite and produces uniform work. It can also indicate problem areas allowing remediation to occur while the ground is open at a lower cost. Mapping documents the work and provides data for analysis. SBAS or RTK systems are offered depending on accuracy needs and available infrastructure. Initial investment can be scaled up to meet job-specific needs.

Connectivity, an optional machine to machine communication system, helps sync rolling patterns by sharing coverage and pass-count maps between the operating displays of multiple machines. Ideal for use when performing echelon compaction, operators can monitor areas of coverage and the number of passes made via a color display. If a trailing operator sees an area of missed coverage, they can easily pick it up to ensure the entire rolling pattern gets the attention that is needed. System records temperature and passes for future analysis and documentation.
