Overview

MORE TIME TO LOAD MORE

With class-leading tool carrying capacity, increased durabiity, and the most powerful engine in its class, the Cat 6015 Hydraulic Shovel generates higher productivity and fuel efficiency than other shovels. When optimally paired with our 773, 775, or 777 trucks, the 6015 can work across a full spectrum of applications, to include: mining, heavy construction, quarry and aggregate, and industrial applications.

Benefits

Up to 15% Higher Productivity

Produce the most tons per hour at a lower cost with industry leading tool carrying capacity, faster boom movements and cycle times to work across the spectrum of activities most commonly found in heavy construction, quarry and aggregate, and demolition.

Up to 20% Leading Fuel Efficiency

Delivering industry leading fuel efficiency over other shovels in its class, the Cat 6015 cuts fuel costs for every ton moved.

Enhanced Reliability

The Cat 6015 comes standard with an 8.1 m3 (10.6 yd3 ) bucket, giving it a full one-pass advantage per cycle over standard equipped shovels in its class. Fast cycle times and bigger loads per bucket add up to more trucks loaded per shift. Reliability enhancements, to include a new undercarriage protection package, provide customers more time to load more.
