CCS9 Combination Asphalt Compactor

CCS9 Smooth Drum Combination Vibratory Compactor


The CCS9 is a 9 metric ton vibratory combination compactor that combines the smooth front drum of a soil compactor, with smooth rear tires similar to a pneumatic compactor. In addition, the water spray system utilized on Cat® Asphalt Compactors keeps the drum and tires wet for excellent performance on asphalt. It offers outstanding operator comfort while continuing the legacy of durability, reliability and ease-of-service that contractors worldwide have come to expect from Caterpillar machines.

  • Finger Tip Control

    Touch pad machine functions enable the operator to fine tune engine speed control, travel speed, and water spray intervals for efficient operation.

  • Intuitive LCD Display

    Easily monitor machine operating conditions including; travel speed, vibrations per minute, fuel level, operating temperature, and machine diagnostics. The display is backlit for easy viewing in various lighting conditions.

  • Cat C4.4 Diesel Engine with ACERT™ Technology

    The Cat C4.4 engine with ACERT™ technology offers enhanced efficiency, better serviceability, ample power, and less noise. It utilizes the building blocks of ACERT technology in order to meet emission standards. This innovative combination yields cleaner combustion and delivers steady power in all operating conditions with optimal fuel efficiency.

  • Eco-mode

    Eco-mode helps to economize the use of fuel. When the machine idles for a predetermined amount of time, Eco-mode is engaged and the engine rpm is lowered. When the propel lever is engaged, higher engine speeds resume. For certain applications, Eco-mode can be engaged to operate the engine at lower rpm than normal. The lower engine speed results in less fuel burn. Eco-mode can also be programmed to shut down the engine after a user-defined amount of time.

  • Automatic Speed Control

    Automatic Speed Control is a feature that allows the operator to select a maximum working speed. Once selected, the speed can consistently be reached by engaging the propel lever to the full stroke. Consistent speed contributes to compaction quality by making it easier to maintain compaction uniformity.

  • Simple Operation

    The five amplitude, single frrequency vibratory system can be tailored to match a variety of lift thicknesses and mix types. Simple hand wheel adjustments make fine tuning the compaction process easy.

  • Optional Temperature Sensors

    Optional Infra-red sensors enable operators to easily monitor surface temperatures to help determine when to begin and when to end the compaction process. The upper temperature limit for compaction is about 160 degrees C (320 degrees F), while the lower limit is about 90 degrees C (190 degrees F).

  • Automatic Vibratory Control

    An auto-vibe function is tailored to activate or deactivate the vibratory system based on the propel lever position in order to prevent over compaction when making starts and stops.

  • Capacity and Convenience

    The water tank capacity for the drum is 400 L (88 gal), while the wheel spray tank capacity is 18 L (4 gal). Dual pumps alternate with the direction of travel in order to optimize the service life of each pump. An optional freeze protection kit is avalailable for cold climates when the machine is not in use.

  • High Flow Design

    Dual spray bars and evenly spaced nozzles help ensure that the drum stays wet, even in the harshest conditions.

  • Reliable Performance

    Triple filtration with filters located in the tank fill port, before the water pump and in the spray nozzles help provide reliable performance.

  • Long Service Intervals

    Long service intervals contribute to more productivity and lower owning and operating costs. The vibratory system scheduled oil change interval is 3 years/3,000 hours. The hydraulic oil service interval is 3,000 hours. Engine oil service is every 500 hours.

  • Tilting Cooling System

    The cooling system tilts for easy cleaning. Normal cleaning ensures that the cooling systems protects the engine to full capacity.
