CW16 9-Wheel

CW16 Pneumatic Roller

CW16 Pneumatic Roller


The Cat® CW16 9-wheel pneumatic roller offers an operating weight range of 5200 kg to 15 000 kg (11,484 lb - 33,069 lb) for excellent versatility and performance. Equipped with an efficient Cat engine, this machine delivers smooth, reliable performance on grades and soft base materials.


  • Compaction Width

    Nine rubber tires provide an overall compaction width of 1754 mm (69") with 36 mm (1.4") overlap.

  • Flexible Ballast

    Ballast options deliver a load per wheel range of 0.58 to 1.67 metric. The the water-tight ballast chamber is equipped with baffled compartments to prevent surge.

  • Pickup Prevention

    Several features help prevent material from adhering to the tires. The water spray system includes a pump, triple filtration, and dedicated spray nozzles for each tire. Spring-applied, self-adusting scrapers help remove debris and prevent accumulation. Standard cocoa mats enhance water distribution over the entire wheel surface. Optional thermal aprons trap heat around the wheels and creates a warmer environment that helps prevent pickup.

  • Oscillating Front Wheels

    Oscillating front wheels optimize compaction beneath each wheel and eliminates bridging over softer areas.

  • Simple Operation

    An LCD provides a visual references of machine controls to keep the operator informed when making adjustments. The display can be customized to support multiple language options. The push-button controls make operation easy and enable operators to modify engine speed, travel speed, and water spray functions.

  • Engine

    A C3.4B engine meets U.S. EPA Tier 4 Final and EU Stage IV emissions and provides 75 kW (100.5 hp) of power. A C4.4 engine provides 75 kW (100.5 hp) of power and meets emissions equivalent to U.S. EPA Tier 3, EU Stage IIIA, and China Stage III.

  • Automatic Speed Control

    Automatic speed control enables operators to maintain consistent speeds for optimal performance.

  • Eco-Mode

    Eco-mode modifies the engine speed to 1900 rpm for peak performance and lower fuel consumption. The reduced rpm also lowers sound levels for enhanced operator comfort.

  • Best Lifetime Value

    Best Lifetime Value with efficient engine and durable rubber tires minimize life-time operating costs and maximize profit.

  • Lower Maintenance

    The standard 500 hour oil service interval, extended life coolant, eco-mode, and bio-degradeable oil, lead to longer intervals between scheduled service requirements.
