The Cat Control System

We have led the way in increasing the productivity of battery powered mining equipment.


State-of-the-Art Drive Technology

Optional HiPAC 10 VFD – The Cat HiPAC 10 is a DC to AC variable-frequency inverter control that drives high-performance AC electronic motors, which have a superior speed-torque characteristics.


Mine Duty, 37 kW/50 hp Tram Motor

The scoop is equipped with a 50 hp, 110 V DC, class H insulation series wound traction motor.


Explosion Proof, 11.9 kW/16 hp Pump Motor

All Cat utility scoops feature large hydraulic fluid reservoirs for maximum cooling capacity. Each reservoir is equipped for easy fluid-level monitoring.


Human-factor Engineered Operator’s Compartment

For long-shift productivity, operator comfort is paramount for maintaining a safe working environment.


Heavy-duty Center Section

To provide superior stability in tough conditions, the scoop offers ball bearing oscillation. The problems associated with three-point-hitch style oscillation are eliminated with the robust design of the pivot section.


Environmentally Responsible

The Cat Diesel Power pack, in both permissible and non-permissible configurations, is the cleanest power pack available for the underground mining environment.


Diesel Options

Cat diesel-powered equipment boasts the most efficient engines and powertrains available while ensuring the lowest levels of emissions. The SU482 DN is capable of operating for long distances at high speeds and is designed for challenging roadway conditions with steep gradients. The unit has SAHR Braking systems and can be available for PA or WV operations.
