CP5 Vibratory Soil Compactor

The 5-ton Cat® CP5 GC Vibratory Soil Compactor features a padfoot drum and is ideally suited for cohesive and semi-cohesive soil applications. The CP5 replaces the CP34.

CP5

DESCRIPTION

The Cat® CP5 Vibratory Soil Compactors are ideally suited for cohesive and semi-cohesive soil compaction applications. A durable propel system and narrow machine width make it ideal for small compaction jobs or working in tight areas such as trenches or job sites with limited space.

Propel System

        
  • Powered by a Cat® C3.4B engine that meets U.S. EPA Tier 4 Final emission standards.
  •     
  • Built around a dual pump propel system, two pumps provide separate dedicated flow to the drum drive motor and rear axle motor for exceptional gradeability and traction in forward and reverse.
  •     
  • The limited slip differential provides balanced tractive effort and smooth torque transfer to both rear wheels.
  •     
  • The CP34 has infinitely variable speed range for maximum torque when using the optional leveling blade or grade climbing, plus the ability to move quickly over longer distances.
  •     
  • High travel speed up to 8.8 km/h (5.5 mph).

Vibratory System

        
  • High centrifugal force and amplitude provides superior compactive effort and exceptional productivity.
  •     
  • A vibratory frequency of 35.8 Hz (2150 vpm) combined with optimal drum weight, enables the operator to achieve density in fewer passes.
  •     
  • The large heavy-duty bearings for the weight shaft are designed for high compactive forces.
  •     
  • Heavy-duty isolation mounts allow more force to be transmitted to the ground and less vibration to the drum yoke.

Comfortable and Ergonomic Operator Station

        
  • A rear vision camera with large color touchscreen display enhances visibility for more complete operator control and safety.
  •     
  • The adjustable operator’s seat has an integrated multi-function LCD display and control console, flip-up arm rests and a 76 mm (3 in) wide retractable seat belt.
  •     
  • Operational gauges and basic diagnostics are displayed on the integrated LCD screen.
  •     
  • An easy to reach propel lever is located to the right of the operator’s seat for convenient and accurate machine control.
  •     
  • Single lever control for propel and vibratory ON/OFF provides simple, low-effort operation.
  •     
  • Outstanding visibility to the front and rear of machine.
  •     
  • Low sound levels and vibration for greater operator comfort and productivity.
  •     
  • The operator’s station is isolated with heavy-duty rubber mounts to reduce machine vibration transmitted to the operator.

Compact Size for Specific Applications

        
  • The narrow machine width of 1.4 m (4.6 ft) is ideal for working in trench applications or job sites with limited space.
  •     
  • The machine weight is good for light compaction of uniform layers over sewer and water pipes.
  •     
  • The propel system allows the operator to stop, maintain machine position and change directions while on a grade.
  •     
  • A short turning radius provides good maneuverability in confined work areas.

Reliability and Serviceability

        
  • Visual indicators allow easy check of radiator coolant, hydraulic oil tank level and air restriction indicator.
  •     
  • The operator’s station and platform tilts forward to allow convenient access to the hydraulic pumps.
  •     
  • A rear-mounted cooling system provides easy access for cleaning.
  •     
  • Monitor fluid conditions with regular sampling to help extend change intervals up to 500 hours engine oil, 1000 hours eccentric housing, 3000 hours hydraulic oil, and 12000 hours coolant.
  •     
  • Quick-connect hydraulic test ports simplify system diagnostics.
  •     
  • Ecology drains provide an environmental method to drain fluids on the radiator, engine oil pan, hydraulic and fuel tank.
  •     
  • Secure hose routing with polyethylene blocks reduce rubbing and extend service life.
  •     
  • Nylon braided wrap and all-weather connectors ensure electrical system integrity. Electrical wiring is color-coded, numbered and labeled with component identifiers to simplify troubleshooting.
  •     
  • Maintenance-free Cat batteries are mounted in the rear of the machine are accessible through the swing out rear grill. Cat batteries are specifically designed for maximum cranking power and protection against vibration.

Sustainability

        
  • The Cat C3.4 is available in configurations that meet U.S. EPA Tier 4 Final emissions standards.
  •     
  • Cat diesel engines are required to use ULSD (ultra-low sulfur diesel fuel with 15 ppm of sulfur or less) or ULSD blended with the following lower-carbon intensity fuels* up to: 20% biodiesel FAME (fatty acid methyl ester) or 100% renewable diesel, HVO (hydrotreated vegetable oil) and GTL (gas-to-liquid) fuels Refer to guidelines for successful application. Please consult your Cat dealer or "Caterpillar Machine Fluids Recommendations" (SEBU6250) for details.
        *Tailpipe greenhouse gas emissions from lower-carbon intensity fuels are essentially the same as traditional fuels.
  •     
  • A well-trained operator is worth the investment. Skilled operators benefit your bottom line by maximizing productivity, avoiding costly downtime, and maintaining jobsite safety - which can help to improve fuel efficiency and reduce greenhouse gas emissions.
  •     
  • Extended maintenance intervals not only reduce downtime but can decrease the amount of fluid and filters that are replaced over the life of the machine. Extend change intervals up to 500 hours engine oil, 3000 hours eccentric housing and hydraulic oil, and 12000 hours coolant.
  •     
  • Performance and safety can be augmented with a standard camera that is viewed on an in-cab display.
  •     
  • Cat Scheduled Oil Sampling (S•O•S℠) Services helps reveal excessive wear, contaminated fluids or other "unseen" issues that can shorten component life. In many cases, you can extend oil and coolant change intervals by using fluid monitoring. Consult your Cat dealer or the machine's operation and maintenance manual for more information.
