Caterpillar 836K landfill compactor

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.
