Cat Compact with Compaction Algorithm

Cat Compact with Compaction Algorithm

Cat Compact with Compaction Algorithm delivers advanced measurements and real-time guidance inside the cab to help operators meet compaction targets faster, more uniformly, and in fewer passes.


Compact with Compaction Algorithm combines advanced compaction measurement, in-cab guidance for operators, and reporting capabilities for managers. Includes a Global Navigation Satellite System (GNSS) receiver and mapping display.


  • Satellite-Based Augmentation System (SBAS) helps operators map pass counts based on low accuracy satellite positioning. Factory standard for 836, upgrade available for other models.
  • Factory upgradable Real-Time Kinematic (RTK) utilizes an elevation-based compaction algorithm to identify when the machine has achieved maximum compaction.
  • Operators can monitor areas of coverage and the number of passes made via a color display.
  • Monitor slopes to plan and control layer thickness.
  • Utilize asset hours effectively.


  • High accuracy pass count and elevation mapping features help the operator visualize the work as it occurs, achieving better density.
  • Ensures that the compactor covers the entire jobsite and produces uniform work, eliminating over-compaction.
  • Indicates problem areas and allows for remediation while the workface is open to help lower costs.
  • Enables operators to more effectively achieve proper grade utilizing design files while maximizing compaction.


  • The touchscreen interface offers easy access to information to help operators of any experience level work more efficiently.
  • Utilize the optional VisionLink® Productivity for Landfill application to track volumes, density, cut/fill data, and more. Stay informed of your operation and drive improvements that maximize the life of your landfill.
  • Operators can visualize the work they perform and quickly identify areas of concern.
  • Compact technologies feature the Landfill Compaction Algorithm (LCA), which tells the operator when a layer is compacted.
