Cat launches four new util­ity rollers

Earthmovers & Excavators - - News -

Cat has launched four new roller mod­els with the rental mar­ket in mind. The four new util­ity rollers – the CB2.5, CB2.7, CB2.9 and CC2.6 – use their op­er­at­ing weight in met­ric tonnes as nomen­cla­ture. Cater­ing to the equip­ment rental sec­tor has meant the new ma­chines are easy to op­er­ate and quick to trans­port and ser­vice.

The new rollers are par­tic­u­larly suited for ap­pli­ca­tions such as roads, bike paths, court­yards, patch­work, car parks, drive­ways and shoul­der work.

The rollers use tog­gle-type switches to ac­ti­vate and con­trol ma­chine func­tions. An ana­logue dis­play pro­vides fuel level, en­gine tem­per­a­ture and ma­chine hours for fast ref­er­ence.

Cat says that hoist­ing the rollers on to trans­port ve­hi­cles is sim­ple thanks to the ma­chine’s sin­gle point lift op­tion and durable hitch de­sign. The rollers also have a fold­able ROPS op­tion that short­ens the trans­port height and en­ables the ma­chine to move un­der and around low struc­tures when per­form­ing com­paction du­ties.

Un­der the hood, the rollers are equipped with a 22.3kW Cat C1.5 en­gine con­fig­ured to US Tier 4 In­terim/EU Stage IIIA emis­sions re­quire­ments.

Ser­vic­ing the ma­chines has been sim­pli­fied by equip­ping the rollers with fuses and re­lays that en­able ser­vice per­son­nel to trou­bleshoot is­sues with­out need­ing to use spe­cial­ist equip­ment. In ad­di­tion, the rollers have vis­ual in­di­ca­tors for air­flow, fuel/wa­ter sep­a­ra­tor, cool­ing, hy­draulics and wa­ter spray sys­tems to help op­er­a­tors keep on top of main­te­nance.

They are con­nected to Cat’s Prod­uct Link soft­ware, al­low­ing own­ers to mon­i­tor their lo­ca­tion and ser­vice sta­tus. Cat says this al­lows the rollers to slot eas­ily into a rental fleet.
