Caterpillar® 3024C Engine
The Caterpillar® 3024C engine provides efficient power while meeting U.S. EPA Tier 2 and E.U. Stage II engine emission requirements.

The Caterpillar® 3024C engine provides a gross power of 34.1 kW (46 hp) and a torque of 143 Nm for good performance and reliability in tough conditions.

Large Cooling System
The large cooling system keeps engine temperatures low in order to maximize fuel efficiency and minimize emissions.

High Ambient Cooling
The high ambient cooling system provides efficient operation in high ambient temperatures.

Operator's Station
The convenient, comfortable operating environment with three-position seating provides good visibility and promotes day-long productivity.

Operator’s Station
The operator’s station incorporates a fully-equipped console and an adjustable suspension seat.

Instrument Panel
The easy-to-understand instrument panel integrates a fuel level indicator, hour meter and light indicators for machine functions.

Pre-Heat Ignition System
The key switch includes an automatic engine pre-heat feature in order to assist in cold-weather starting.

Traction Control (Optional)
The traction control system transfers torque between the front and rear drums.

Vibratory System
The vibratory system provides good balance between frequency and amplitude in order to meet various job site conditions.

Dual Frequency Vibratory System
The standard vibratory system incorporates two frequencies of 61 Hz (3,660 vpm) and 69 Hz (4,140 vpm) and an amplitude of 0.37 mm (0.015") in order to provide application versatility.

Vibratory Selection
A vibratory selection switch provides front, rear and both drum vibratory capabilities.

Automatic Vibratory Control
The vibratory system includes an automatic start feature that activates whenever the propel lever is moved from the neutral position.

Rear Drum Vibratory Delay
The rear drum vibratory delay feature controls the start of the rear drum in order to assist power management on slopes.

Water Spray System
Corrosion-proof components provide long life and reliable operation.

Spray Capabilities
The standard pressurized water spray system with constant or intermittent capabilities provides extended operation between refills. The intermittent spray setting increases spray time by 50% over the continuous setting.

Water Pump and Filters
The extended life water pump and filters are conveniently located for easy access while providing optimum spray and flow.

Water Filtration
Triple water filtration reduces machine downtime caused by system clogs.

Large Water Tank Fill and Drain
The large water tank fill and drain allow the system to be filled and drained within minutes.

Drum Design
The Caterpillar drum design delivers high production and a smooth mat surface.

Drum Edges
The drum edge design promotes a smooth surface and reduces marks on lifts when turning.

Folded Drum Supports
The folded drum supports provide good visibility to the ground contact points.

Self-Adjusting Scrapers
Each drum is fitted with two retractable, spring-loaded, selfadjusting scrapers. The scrapers are designed for even wear.

Replaceable Rubber Mounts
The rubber mounts isolate vibration and enhance vibratory capabilities.

Easy Access Tie-Down
The tie-down location provides easy access for quick loading and unloading.

Reliability and Serviceability
The CB-334E provides the reliability and serviceability that you’ve come to expect from Caterpillar.

Vertical Lift Engine Enclosure
The vertical lift engine enclosure allows fast access to routine service points.

Water Spray System
The filters can be easily removed without the use of special tools.

Extended Life Oils
Extended life oils increase maintenance intervals for the engine oil, hydraulic system and vibratory system. Remote mounted drains provide simplified collection of fluids.

Quick-Connect Hydraulic Test Ports
The quick-connect hydraulic test ports simplify system diagnosis.

Oil-bath Lubrication
An oil-bath lubricates the eccentric weight bearings, extending routine maintenance to 3 year/3000 hour intervals.
