The pod-style vibratory system delivers superior compactive force while offering serviceability advantages.
Pod-style Weight Housing
The pod-style weight housing is assembled and sealed at the factory to ensure cleanliness, longer bearing life and easier field exchange or service.
The dual amplitude works efficiently in a wider range of applications. Selection is controlled from the operator's station.
The CP44B has a vibratory frequency of 31.9 Hz (1914 vpm) for maximum compaction results. An optional variable frequency control allows frequency to be better matched to varying job conditions.
Large Heavy-duty Bearings
Large heavy-duty bearings for the eccentric weight shaft allow higher frequency for greater force.
3 year/3000 hour
The 3 year/3000 hour vibratory bearing lube service interval reduces maintenance.
The heavy-duty isolation mounts on the CP44B allow more force to be transmitted to the ground and less vibration to the drum yoke.
Proprietary Eccentric Weights
Reliable dual amplitude selection and innovative design of the proprietary eccentric weights ensures precise performance.
Positive Amplitude Selection
Positive amplitude selection is accomplished when the spherical steel shot is repositioned inside the hollow eccentric weight. Direction of weight shaft rotation determines amplitude level.
Control is simplified from the operator’s station with a selection switch on the operator’s console.
The proprietary eccentric weights offer high reliability since there is no chance of the high-strength spherical steel shot welding together. System reliability is superior to swinging mechanical weights and is also quieter during starts and stops.
The proprietary eccentric weights offer long service life. There are no heavy weights to slam together and no metal fragments to contaminate the bearing lubrication system.
Cat® C3.4B Engine
This high-tech four cylinder engine provides outstanding durability, performance, reliability and operating economy while producing less emissions. The C3.4B engine is certified to meet U.S. EPA Tier 4 Final and European EU Stage IV emission standards.
Engine Certified to Meet Emission Standards
The C3.4B engine is certified to meet U.S. EPA Tier 4 Final and European EU Stage IV emission standards.
When engaged, Eco-mode reduces the operating speed of the engine to a lower rate, which reduces fuel consumption. Eco-mode is suitable for most normal applications. When more engine power is required, Eco-mode can be disabled.
Dual Pump Propel System
The dual pump propel system offers high tractive effort and gradeability for outstanding productivity and machine control in demanding environments.
Dual Propel Pumps
The dual propel pumps provide separate, balanced flow to the rear wheel axle and the drum drive motors. 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.
Two Speed Ranges
The dual pump propel system offers two speed ranges for versatile operation. Low speed range for vibratory operation and maximum torque when climbing grades. High speed range moves the machine quickly over longer distances.
Flushing valves in each propel circuit help keep hydraulic oil cool and clean for maximum system efficiency.
The padfoot drum allows the CP44B to perform well in cohesive or semi-cohesive material. Two padfoot designs are available: oval or square. The exclusive Cat oval padfoot design provides deeper penetration to ensure compaction from the bottom fo the lift to the top. The square pad design provides less penetration than the oval, but provides an excellent surface seal. Steel drum scrapers effectively remove excess material that clings to the drum.
Gradeability and Machine Control
The exclusive dual pump propel system provides superior performance, machine control and excellent grade climbing capability.
Two Propel Pump System
The two propel pump system has dedicated pumps to drive the heavy-duty, high-torque rear wheel and drum motors independently. Should the drum or wheels begin to spin, there is always hydraulic flow to the non-spinning motor, allowing continuous tractive effort. This is especially useful in loose underfoot conditions.
Controllability is another feature of dual propel pumps. The operator is able to stop, maintain machine position and change directions while on a grade.
The CP44B provides high productivity when working on more demanding grades. These machines are very effective in trench applications.
Open Platform with ROPS/FOPS Canopy
Machines configured with a ROPS/FOPS canopy are enclosed by handrails and features foot rests for sure footing and support when working on a grade.

Full-length Glass Windshield
The full-length glass windshield provides exceptional visibility to the drum and optional leveling blade.
Mirrors and Lights
Included with the cab are two exterior rear view mirrors, and front and rear working lights.
Windshield wipers on the front and rear windows allow good vision in adverse conditions.
Side windows open for cross ventilation.
The cab is climate controlled with standard heater/defroster and available air conditioning to keep the working environment comfortable.
Leveling Blade (Optional)
The Leveling Blade option increases machine versatility and utilization, plus greatly enhances productivity.
Expands Versatility and Utilization
The leveling blade expands the machines versatility and utilization for use in material knockdown, site leveling, trench backfilling and light dozing.
Leveling blade control is controlled by the operator’s right foot to provide simple, one-handed operation of machine propel, steering and blade functions simultaneously.
Power and Tractive Efforct
The dual propel pumps provide plenty of power and tractive effort for effective blade use without drum spin.
No special permits are required for transporting with a blade width of 2.12 m (6' 11").
Two-piece reversible and replaceable cutting edges increase edge service life and reduce replacement costs.
