The new Cat 6030 hydraulic mining shovel features Product Link Elite, which enables data communications for comprehensive machine health monitoring in the operations office using Cat MineStar Health.
To further boost machine availability and utilisation, major 6030 components are fully integrated into Caterpillar product support systems for reliable parts supply and efficient Cat dealer services. The new 6030 also claims the honour of being the first in the hydraulic shovel line to display the new Cat Modern Hex graphics.
As with previous models, the 6030 is offered in backhoe and face shovel configurations to meet site needs. With a bucket payload of 30 tonnes, the shovel is a three-pass match with the Cat 777 truck and a five-pass match with the Cat 785 mining truck.
