Overview

Works Harder. Lasts Longer

The Cat® 6060 Hydraulic Mining Shovel is the industry’s most popular hydraulic shovel in its size class. And for good reason. With its rated payload of 61 tonnes (67 tons), the Cat 6060 was the first shovel in the mining industry tailor-made for mines using 240-ton (218-tonne) haul trucks, providing an efficient truck-shovel system solution to meet production capacity in these environments. Today's 6060 remains the ideal shovel for these applications, with improvements and enhancements in durability and reliability to deliver the uptime you demand. And its powerful engine and efficient hydraulic system allow higher working speeds for fast cycle times. The result is higher productivity and lower overall owning and operating costs.

Benefits

More than 40% Greater Visibility

With clear views to the digging and loading areas as well as the tracks

Up to 15% Fuel Reduction

In both face shovel and backhoe configurations

Improved Uptime & Durability

With 5% weight increase to critical structures
