By Katie Weiler, Managing Editor | September 28, 2010


Replacing the 826G, the 826G Series II landfill compactor weighs up to 81,498 pounds and features an upgraded cooling system, a 380-hp Cat 3406E engine with EUI, a Cat Axle Guard System and more. An electronically controlled, hydraulically driven fan directs air through the system as needed, and it automatically reverses direction for 20 seconds every 30 minutes to purge the intake screen of debris. The reverse system can also be engaged manually at any time from the cab.
