CB16 Tandem Vibratory Roller

The CB16 asphalt compactor offers enhancements that simplify operation, provide versatility, and deliver excellent fuel economy. Rotary dials, oscillatory vibration, and 360 degreeseating make this compactor a perfect match for urban streets, rural roads, highways, interstates and other high-production applications.

Simple to Operate, Easy to Learn

  • Innovative hand-wheel steering technology delivers precise control and good forward visibility
  • Easily activate the vibratory system, water spray system, and drum offset with the multi-function propel handle
  • Machine functions with LED indicators have been independently grouped for simplified control and quick activation
  • Dual side access on ROPS/Canopy machines provide operators with flexibility to mount and dismount the machine (U.S. and Canada only)

Better Fuel Economy

  • Get up to 10% better fuel economy with the Cat C4.4 engine and standard Eco-mode
  • The C4.4 engine provides 106 kW (142 hp) of power and meets regional emissions requirements
  • Unique Eco-mode design modifies engine speed based on load requirements; high amplitude vibration utilizes higher engine speed, while static rolling conserves fuel and operates at low engine speed with even lower sound levels

Easy Vibratory System Set-up

  • Five amplitude system utilizes a single frequency with five distinct amplitudes that provide excellent performance on thick lifts and rigid mix designs
  • Versa Vibe™ vibratory system creates a 2-in-1 machine with four amplitudes and two frequencies; two settings for lighter hitting and higher working speeds on thin lifts; and two settings for heavier hitting and slower speeds on thick lifts and challenging mix designs
  • 2-amplitude/2-frequency vibratory system automatically optimizes amplitude and frequency with a single switch for simple thin/thick lift operation
  • Reach compaction goals with automatic speed control; green indicators help ensure travel speed matches correct impact spacing

Compaction Options Include Oscillation

  • Oscillatory vibration on the rear drum combined with standard vertical vibration front drum delivers both performance and versatility
  • Oscillation system utilizes proven pod-style eccentric weight technology developed by Caterpillar
  • 2 year/2000 hour service interval helps maximize uptime and limit maintenance costs.
  • Durable power-transmission belt delivers 2-times the load capacity of timing belt systems leading to extended life
  • Standard drum shells offer exceptional long-term life on a variety of mix designs and delivers outstanding mat texture, density, and smoothness.

Ensure Mat Coverage with Compaction Control

  • Pass-count and Temperature Mapping combines infrared temperature sensors with GPS mapping to keep the operator informed of current asphalt temperatures, machine position, pass-count, and layer coverage
  • Compaction Meter Value (CMV) utilizes a drum-mounted accelerometer to measure the combined stiffness of the asphalt layer, base layer, and sub-base layer to indicate road structure quality beneath the surface
  • Machine to Machine communication helps keep rolling patterns in sync by sharing mapped data such as CMV, temperature mapping, and pass count coverage between multiple machines

Prevent Build-Up, Keep the Drum Surfaces Wet

  • High capacity water tank provides long duration between fills
  • Dual water pumps provide back-up capability and alternate with direction of travel to maximize service life
  • Triple filtration prevents clogs with filters located at the fill point, water pumps, and spray nozzles
  • Integrated freeze protection kit (optional) provides protection in cold temperatures when machine is not in use

Boost Performance with Enhanced Visibility

  • Optimize sight lines with 360  seating option; always face the direction of travel
  • LED Lighting delivers excellent job site illumination while conserving energy
  • Night-lighting option provides additional illumination to the ROPS/Cab, drum edges, and drum surfaces

Product Link™

  • Make timely, fact-based decisions to maximize efficiency, improveproductivity, and lower owning and operating costs
  • Easily track location, machine hours, fuel usage, and idle time
  • Diagnostic codes are made available through online web applications
  • Remote flash works around your schedule to ensure your machine’s software is up to date for optimal performance
