Efficiency and Productivity

Efficiency and Productivity

The Autoshift mode, when active, allows the machine to automatically upshift or downshift based on machine speed and torque, optimizing performance and thus saving fuel. This feature can be easily enabled or disabled on the soft keypad.
Decelerator Pedal
Decelerator Pedal - The left pedal acts as a brake, transmission neutralizer and an engine decelerator to override the engine speed selected by the throttle lock. This enables the operator to slow down when the throttle lock is engaged and to return to throttle lock without pressing a resume or set button again. This aids in maneuvering around trucks, tractors or any other obstacle.
Steering and Transmission Integrated Control System (STIC™)
Steering and Transmission Integrated Control System (STIC™) - Experience maximum responsiveness and control with STIC that combines directional selection, gear selection and steering into a single lever.
  • Simple side-to-side motion turns machine right or left, minimizing operator movements
  • Easy to operate finger controlled gear selection
  • Smoother, faster cycles help reduce operator fatigue through the use of low effort integrated controls
Steering System
Steering System - Confident machine operation starts with precise machine control enabled by the 825K's load sensing hydraulic steering system.
  • Increase efficiency with our variable displacement piston pumps
  • Achieve precise positioning for easy loading in tight areas with 43 degrees each way of steering articulation
  • Enhance operator comfort with integrated steering and transmission control functions
Electro Hydraulic Controls - Operators increase productivity with our responsive implements feature.
  • Operate comfortably through electronically controlled hydraulic cylinder stops
  • Handle easy-to-use soft detent controls

Robust Structures - Your bottom line is improved by highly durable structures that achieve multiple life cycles and withstand the toughest loading conditions.
  • Full box-section rear frame resists torsional shock and twisting forces
  • Heavy-duty steering cylinder mounts efficiently transmit steering loads into the frame
  • Axle mounting has been optimized for increased structural integrity

Power Train

Power Train

Cat Planetary Powershift Transmission - Building your success begins with a best-in-class transmission.
  • Consistent, smooth shifting and efficiency through integrated electronic controls that utilize Single Clutch Speed Shifting (SCSS).
  • Long life and reliability through heat treat gear and metallurgy.
  • Three forward and three reverse speeds to match your application.
Cat Torque Converter (TC) with Lock-up Clutch -

Cat C15 ACERT Engine
Cat C15 ACERT Engine - The Cat C15 ACERT engine is built and tested to meet your most demanding applications. Two engine options are available that meet Tier 4 Final/Stage IV emission standards or Tier 3/Stage IIIA equivalent emission standards.
  • Fully integrated electronic engine controls works in concert with the entire machine to make your fuel go farther.
  • Use less fuel idling with Engine Idle Shutdown.
  • Maximized durability with Delayed Engine Shutdown.

Tamping Wheels and Tips

Tamping Wheels and Tips

Chevron Tamping Tip Design - The modified chevron tamping wheel tip design provides greater ground pressure, more compaction, excellent traction and a smooth ride.
Compaction - Compaction is achieved from the bottom of the lift to the top. The tapered tips walk out of the lift without “fluffing” the soil. The top of the lift is compacted and the surface is relatively smooth and sealed so hauling units are able to maintain a high speed when traveling over the fill. The 825K travel speed allows four forces of compaction: pressure, manipulation, impact and vibration. Since the 825K can also spread fill, the number of spreader tractors may be able to be reduced.
Standard Tips - Standard tips are used in typical soil compaction applications where compaction specification requirements are 95-100 percent Standard Proctor.
Symmetrical Tamping Tip Pattern - Equal compaction in forward or reverse is the result of the symmetrical tamping tip pattern. Tips are full perimeter and replaceable. The tip is welded to a base assembly, which then is welded directly to the drum.
Cleaner Bars - Each wheel has two cleaner bars to keep the drums free of carryover dirt, regardless of rolling direction so efficiency is maximized.
Adjustable Cleaner Bar Tip - The adjustable cleaner bar tips are heat-treated and direct hardened, cutting edge steel to increase wear life, which translates into lower operating costs.

Benefits and Features

Efficiency and Productivity

Efficiency and Productivity

The Autoshift mode, when active, allows the machine to automatically upshift or downshift based on machine speed and torque, optimizing performance and thus saving fuel. This feature can be easily enabled or disabled on the soft keypad.
Decelerator Pedal
Decelerator Pedal - The left pedal acts as a brake, transmission neutralizer and an engine decelerator to override the engine speed selected by the throttle lock. This enables the operator to slow down when the throttle lock is engaged and to return to throttle lock without pressing a resume or set button again. This aids in maneuvering around trucks, tractors or any other obstacle.
Steering and Transmission Integrated Control System (STIC™)
Steering and Transmission Integrated Control System (STIC™) - Experience maximum responsiveness and control with STIC that combines directional selection, gear selection and steering into a single lever.
  • Simple side-to-side motion turns machine right or left, minimizing operator movements
  • Easy to operate finger controlled gear selection
  • Smoother, faster cycles help reduce operator fatigue through the use of low effort integrated controls
Steering System
Steering System - Confident machine operation starts with precise machine control enabled by the 825K's load sensing hydraulic steering system.
  • Increase efficiency with our variable displacement piston pumps
  • Achieve precise positioning for easy loading in tight areas with 43 degrees each way of steering articulation
  • Enhance operator comfort with integrated steering and transmission control functions
Electro Hydraulic Controls - Operators increase productivity with our responsive implements feature.
  • Operate comfortably through electronically controlled hydraulic cylinder stops
  • Handle easy-to-use soft detent controls

  • Use less fuel idling with Engine Idle Shutdown.
  • Maximized durability with Delayed Engine Shutdown.

Tamping Wheels and Tips

Tamping Wheels and Tips

Chevron Tamping Tip Design - The modified chevron tamping wheel tip design provides greater ground pressure, more compaction, excellent traction and a smooth ride.
Compaction - Compaction is achieved from the bottom of the lift to the top. The tapered tips walk out of the lift without “fluffing” the soil. The top of the lift is compacted and the surface is relatively smooth and sealed so hauling units are able to maintain a high speed when traveling over the fill. The 825K travel speed allows four forces of compaction: pressure, manipulation, impact and vibration. Since the 825K can also spread fill, the number of spreader tractors may be able to be reduced.
Standard Tips - Standard tips are used in typical soil compaction applications where compaction specification requirements are 95-100 percent Standard Proctor.
Symmetrical Tamping Tip Pattern - Equal compaction in forward or reverse is the result of the symmetrical tamping tip pattern. Tips are full perimeter and replaceable. The tip is welded to a base assembly, which then is welded directly to the drum.
Cleaner Bars - Each wheel has two cleaner bars to keep the drums free of carryover dirt, regardless of rolling direction so efficiency is maximized.
Adjustable Cleaner Bar Tip - The adjustable cleaner bar tips are heat-treated and direct hardened, cutting edge steel to increase wear life, which translates into lower operating costs.
