Overview

The Productivity You Demand. The Durability You Expect.

The Cat® 6040 Hydraulic Mining Shovel is trusted on sites around the world — consistently delivering the productivity you demand with the durability you expect. This proven shovel is known for top performance and high reliability, backed by the on-the-ground support of the Cat dealer network.

But we’re always looking for ways to make the 6040 better. We’ve made improvements that enable peak production — delivering fast cycle times and high digging forces. We’ve increased uptime by making the 6040 more reliable and easier to service. And it’s now available for both highly regulated and lesser regulated countries with engines that meet U.S. EPA Tier 4 Final/EU Stage V standards without the need for DEF — saving time and cost during maintenance.

Benefits

Up to 4,000 Tons Per Hour Peak Productivity

Thanks to fast cycles, high digging forces and twin Tier 4 Final non-DEF C32 engines

At Least 60,000 Hours Target Design Life

Up to 18% more operating weight, robust structures and heavy castings at pivot points

Improved Reliability and Serviceability

Improved undercarriage, hose & coupling routing and layout, and dust ejection system
