826K Landfill Compactor


Purpose-built for landfill operation, the Cat 826K delivers a level of reliability, performance, safety, operator comfort, serviceability, and efficiency that can only come from 35-plus years as the industry's leader. Field-proven protection and integrated technologies provide peak availability and optimized landfill performance.Cat Landfill Compactors are designed with durability built in, ensuring maximum availability through multiple life cycles. With optimized performance and simplified serviceability, our machines allow you to operate more efficiently and safely. Introduced in 1978, the 826 has been the industry leader for over 35 years. Focused on helping our customers succeed, we have continued to build upon each new series. The 826K continues our legacy of reliability, performance, safety, operator comfort, serviceability, and efficiency.

  • Eco Mode allows the machine to go into auto shift mode when not operating at maximum torque, optimizing performance and saving fuel.
  • The left pedal acts as a brake, transmission neutralizer and an engine decelerator to override the engine speed selected by the throttle lock. Allows the operator to slow speeds when the throttle lock is engaged and to return to throttle lock without pressing a resume or set button.
  • Electro hydraulic controls increase productivity with responsive implements feature. Operate comfortably with easy-to-use soft-detent controls.
  • Steering system provides confident machine operation and precise control enabled by the 826K's load-sensing hydraulic steering system.
  • Increased efficiency with variable displacement piston pumps that give operators precise positioning for easy operation in tight areas with 43 degree articulation in each direction.
  • Steering and Transmission Integrated Control System (STIC™) enhances operator comfort by integrating steering and transmission control functions in a single lever. Includes finger-controlled gear selection.

  • Cat Compaction Control system uses Machine Drive Power (MDP) technology to measure rolling resistance and correlates it with landfill compaction. 3D mapping indicates where to work and when layers are at optimum density. The system eliminates voids, optimizes cell space and documents results.
  • VisionLink 3D Project Monitoring provides managers with detailed compaction analysis to more effectively monitor and manage operations.
  • DETECT technologies help keep people and equipment safe by keeping operator aware of the work area and by monitoring and reporting unsafe conditions, like avoidance zones.
  • COMPACT technologies combine advanced compaction measurement, in-cab guidance and reporting capabilities to help you consistently meet compaction targets fast, uniformly, and in fewer passes.
  • Rear vision camera greatly enhances visibility behind the machine to help the operator work with greater confidence and at peak potential while keeping people and assets safe.
  • Product Link is deeply integrated into your machine, giving you access to information like machine location, hours, fuel usage, idle time and event codes via the online VisionLink user interface. Helps effectively manage fleet and lower operating costs.

  • Railings, ladders and non-slip surfaces enhance technician and operator safety.
  • Rearview camera with in-cab monitor increases operator awareness around the machine.
  • Reducción de las vibraciones para el operador gracias a los soportes aislados de la cabina y a los mandos de dirección e implementos montados en el asiento.

  • Cabina presurizada con aire filtrado.
  • Engine and power train guards prevent trash build-up and shield components.
  • Front frame guards prevent trash build-up inside the frame and protects components and hydraulic lines.
  • Axle wrapping and seal guarding prevents material from wrapping and binding around the axles and assists when cleaning is needed.
  • Transmission oil tube is guarded to resist damage from debris.
  • The fuel tank is positioned away from the debris in the front frame and is easily accessed.
  • High radiator air inlet with screen helps prevent trash from entering the radiator area, maintaining proper airflow and aiding debris to fall off.
  • Striker bars and optional cleaner fingers are located in front and behind the rear wheels and behind the front wheels. Striker bars help to keep wheels free of debris to assist the wheel tips in maintaining good compaction.
  • In cohesive material or severe packing conditions, optional cleaner fingers are available to further assist in keeping the wheel tips clean.
  • Roof extends past the cab doors and windows to minimize debris build up.
  • Suction fan allows ambient air to cool, enhancing cooling capacity. It also pressurizes the engine compartment, preventing trash build up.
