The 816F has a 3176 air-to-air after-cooled (ATAAC) engine producing 220 flywheel horsepower (FWHP). It comes standard with torque rise, a suction fan, F-series cab, and hydraulic controls and brakes.

The 816F was given a 5FN serial number prefix.

[edit] Modifications

In 1996 Caterpillar added long life coolant antifreeze to the cooling system, beginning with 5FN00290.

Production of 5FN ended in 2001; it was replaced by a new 816F unit, with a BMR prefix.

Production of BMR ended in 2006; it was replaced by 816F Series II, with a BZR prefix.

The BZR unit has a C9 engine with ACERT (Advanced Combustion Emissions Reduction Technology) and ADEM4 (Advanced Digital Engine Management IV) producing 240 HP. It comes standard with a two-speed planetary powershift transmission and a new cooling system. It has an operating weight of 52,800 lbs (24,000 kg).

Based on data from the sales database of Ritchie Bros. Auctioneers, it is estimated that more than 400 Caterpillar 816F/816F Series II compactors have been produced.
