CaterpillarFour soil compactors, the CP-563E, CS-563E, CS-573E and CS-583E, replace their D-Series predecessors and feature operating weights from 11.1 to 15.7 metric tons. All use Cat's dual-pump propel system, with a mechanical rear axle that incorporates a limited-slip differential, and all are powered by the Cat 3056E ATAAC electronic diesel engine, which is Tier-2 compliant. Dual amplitude is standard, with a large spread between to make it easier to adjust for lift thickness, soil characteristics and density requirements.
