Overview

Powerful Performance in a Compact Package

The Cat® R1300G is our smallest underground loader, but with a breakout force of 12 020 kg (26504 lb) and 117 kW (157hp) of engine power, it brings maximum production capability to smaller mines. Productivity is enhanced thanks to a smaller turning circle compared to competitive machines. It offers a larger fuel tank so it can run longer between refilling, and superior bucket reach and bucket dump for better loading and faster emptying.
An operator favorite, the R1300G features excellent loaded weight distribution, ride control and seat suspension for maximum comfort. And to raise the bar on air quality in your mine, you can equip your R1300G with an optional diesel particulate filter. The R1300G is an ideal match for the Cat AD22 truck.

Benefits

Production Advantage vs. Competition

Thanks to smaller turning circle, larger fuel tank, better bucket reach and greater dump angle

Operator Favorite

Excellent loaded weight distribution, ride control and seat suspension set the standard for operator comfort

Improved Air Quality

Raise the bar on air quality when equipped with optional diesel particulate filter

  • Cat Health

    Through regular monitoring of machine conditions, mines can adopt a more proactive approach to maintenance and repair. Equipment health data is a key contributor to that approach. Data helps mines identify equipment problems long before failure.

    Accessing the right data at the right time is critical to improving operational intelligence and machine predictive analysis. Cat® MineStar™ Health helps you meet that need by connecting you to your machines and delivering that important information. The MineStar Health portfolio set consists of Connectivity Enablers that collect, convert and transmit equipment data; and Applications that visualize, analyze and report health equipment data.
