The new 562 gross horsepower (419 kW) Cat® 836K landfill compactor delivers on more than 20 years of durable reliability and ease of service by ensuring the operator’s health, productivity and safety are all standard features.
The 836K advances the solid engineering of its predecessors with new wheel and tip configurations and enhanced safety and serviceability. The 836K comes equipped with one of three new wheel and tip con gurations available to meet the operator’s desired application.
A standard rear-view camera enhances overall visibility for the operator while a new instrument pod features membrane switch panels and automatic temperature control – improving operator comfort. Interior and bystander sound levels are reduced, with optional sound-suppression packages available. To protect key components and systems from damage, the 836K uses specialised guarding, including hydraulically actuated engine and power-train shields and front-frame guards to prevent trash build-up inside the frame. Axle-seal guarding stops material from binding around the axles.
The 836K’s Auto-Blade feature automatically raises the blade when the machine reverses and lowers the blade to a pre-set height when it moves forward. The STICTM steering controller uses a single lever for steering and transmission control, allowing the operator to sit comfortably back in the seat, reducing fatigue.
For optimum efficiency, the 836K can be fitted with the Cat Compaction Technology. Using a Global Navigation Satellite System and digital terrain files, the system delivers real-time information via an in-cab display to assist the operator in determining the appropriate number of passes for the level of compaction required.
