Meets Emissions Standards
The Caterpillar 3054C engine meets U.S. EPA Tier 2 and European EU Stage II emissions control standards worldwide.

Propel System
The efficient propel system of the CP-323C provides high tractive effort and gradeability for outstanding productivity, machine control and utilization.

Single Propel Pump with Flow Divider
The single propel pump with flow divider provides separate, balanced hydraulic flow to the rear wheel axle and the drum drive motors. It provides high gradeability and increases tractive effort in loose or poor underfoot conditions.

Limited Slip Differential
The limited slip differential provides balanced tractive effort and smooth torque transfer to both rear wheels.

Infinitely Variable Speed Range
The CP-323C has infinitely variable speed range for maximum torque when using the leveling blade or grade climbing, plus the ability to move quickly over longer distances.

Flushing Valves
Flushing valves in each propel circuit help keep hydraulic oil cool and clean for maximum system efficiency.

High Travel Speed
High travel speed up to 8.9 km/h (5.5 mph).

Operator's Station
The operator's station is designed for simple control, comfort and productivity. The platform is equipped with a ROPS/FOPS canopy and is enclosed by handrails and features foot rests for sure footing.

Single Lever Control
Single lever control for propel and vibratory On/Off provides simple and low effort operation.

Propel Lever
The easy to reach propel lever is located to the right of the operator's seat for convenient and accurate machine control.

Operational Guages
The operational gauges are located on the steering console for easy reference when operating.

Visibility is unrestricted to the drum and tire edge and to the side and rear of the machine.

Operator's Seat
The operator's seat is comfortable, durable and adjustable with flip-up arm rests and a 76 mm (3") wide retractable seat belt.

Isolated Operator's Station
The operator's station is isolated with heavy-duty rubber mounts to reduce machine vibration transmitted to the operator.

Compact Size for Specific Applications
The compact size of the CP-323C is designed specifically for utility construction with narrow working widths like trench compaction or job sites with limited space.

Narrow Machine Width
The narrow machine width of 1.39 m (4'6") is ideal for working in trench applications or job sites with limited space.

Machine Weight
The machine weight is good for light compaction of uniform layers over sewer and water pipes.

Propel System
The propel system allows the operator to stop, maintain machine position and change directions while on a grade.

Turning Radius
The CP-323 has a short turning radius for good maneuverability in confined work areas.

Padfoot Drum
The padfoot drum features involuted pads in shape to walk out of the lift without fluffing or "kicking up" the soil around the pads. Pads are tapered to help clean themselves. Heavy-duty scrapers mounted on the front of the drum are individually adjustable and replaceable and help to reduce excessive material build up between the pads.

Leveling Blade (Optional)
The leveling blade option increases the machines versatility and utilization, plus greatly enhances productivity.

Expands Machine Versatility and Utilization
The optional leveling blade expands the machines versatility and utilization for use in material knockdown, site leveling, trench backfilling and light dozing applications.

Single Lever Blade Control
Single lever blade control is located to the right of the operator’s seat for simple and convenient operation.

Efficient Propel System Combined with Ample Engine Horsepower
Efficient propel system combined with ample engine horsepower provides plenty of power and tractive effort for effective blade use without drum spin.

Reliability and Serviceability
Reliability and serviceability are integrated into every Caterpillar Soil Compactor. These important features keep your machine investment profitable.

Visual Indicators
Visual indicators allow easy check of radiator coolant, hydraulic oil tank level and air restriction indicator.

Operator’s Station Tilts
The operator's station tilts forward to allow convenient access to the hydraulic pumps.

Cooling System
A rear mounted cooling system provides easy access for cleaning. Hydraulic oil cooler tilts rearward for additional access to the radiator.

500 hour engine oil change interval.Vibratory Bearing Lube Service
The 1 year/1000 hour vibratory bearing lube service interval reduces maintenance.

Quick-connect Hydraulic Test Ports
Quick-connect hydraulic test ports simplify system diagnostics.

Ecology Drains
Ecology drains provide an environmental method to drain fluids. They are included on the radiator, engine oil pan, hydraulic and fuel tank.

Scheduled Oil Sampling (S•O•S) Ports
Scheduled Oil Sampling (S•O•S) ports allow for simple fluid collection of engine oil, engine coolant and hydraulic oil.

Secure Hose Routing
Secure hose routing with polyethylene blocks reduce rubbing and increase service life.

Electrical System
Nylon braided wrap and all-weather connectors ensure electrical system integrity. Electrical wiring is color-coded, numbered and labeled with component identifiers to simplify troubleshooting.

Maintenance-free Caterpillar Batteries
Maintenance-free Caterpillar batteries are mounted in the rear of the machine are accessible through the swing out rear grill. Cat batteries are specifically designed for maximum cranking power and protection against vibration.

Product Link Wire-ready
Machine is Product Link wire-ready. The Caterpillar Product Link System (CPLS) ensures maximum uptime and minimum repair costs by simplifying tracking of equipment fleets. provides automatic machine location and hour updates. can be obtained through your local Caterpillar dealer.
