Hydraulic Mining Shovels

Cat® hydraulic mining shovels offer superior productivity with fast cycle times, high bucket fill and the ability to withstand the rigors of any digging environment. To provide increased uptime and low operating costs, components last longer and are easily accessible, and unique on-board technology features easy troubleshooting. Efficiency is enhanced with better energy utilization and an efficient hydraulic system.

Each Cat hydraulic mining shovel model can be perfectly paired with Cat mining and off-highway trucks for optimized hauling and loading solutions. Caterpillar also offers a full line of surface drills for pre-extraction material fragmentation, and track-type tractors, wheel dozers, and motor graders to support floor/bench preparation and clean-up for maximized hydraulic mining shovel productivity.
