The new Caterpillar 562 Gross Horsepower (419 kW) Cat 836K Landfill Compactor with T4F engine embodies more than 20 years of Caterpillar expertise.
The compactor offers field-proven components with a history of reliability, ease of service, and an ergonomic environment to ensure the operator’s health, productivity and safety.
The 836K features a new cab, an engine that meets US EPA Tier 4-Final (EU Stage IV) emissions regulations, new wheel and tip configurations, and enhanced safety and maintenance features.
The newly-designed operator’s station features improved ingress/egress, and a standard rear view camera that significantly enhances overall visibility. A new instrument pod features membrane switch panels, while automatic temperature control adds to the overall comfort of the cabin. Interior and bystander sound levels are reduced, and optional sound-suppression packages are available.
For added productivity, 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 STIC steering controller uses a single lever for steering and transmission control, allowing the operator to sit comfortably back in the seat, significantly reducing fatigue. Available features include a heated seat and radio options, including Bluetooth, MPS or satellite.
