Overview

The Productivity You Expect. The Reliability You Demand.

The Cat® 6030 Hydraulic Mining Shovel is owned by more customers than any other product in the Cat portfolio — and for good reason. It provides the most powerful engine output in its class, along with the mobility and flexibility you need from a 300-tonne machine, to deliver the productivity you expect, with the reliability you demand.

The 6030 offers a standard bucket capacity of 17 m3 (22.2 yd3) in backhoe configuration, and 16.5 m3 (21.5 yd3) in face shovel (FS) configuration with the unique Cat TriPower™ system. The 6030 is ideal to load Cat 777 to 793 mining trucks.

But we’re always looking for ways to make the 6030 better. The only shovel in its size class offered with dual engines, it’s available with a Tier 4 Final engine solution that eliminates the need for Diesel Exhaust Fluid (DEF), saving time and cost during maintenance.

With 18% more power, up to 24% more crowd force and 17% more tearout force

100% Cat Hose Assemblies

Which deliver 20 times more abrasion resistance and 2 times the durability

More Sustainable

Thanks to proven, efficient Cat C27 engines with non-DEF aftertreatment

  • 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.

  • Cat Terrain for Loading

    Mine site output depends on efficient loading and hauling. Cat® MineStar™ Terrain for loading makes those operations more productive while providing accurate feedback to key personnel. Terrain for loading is a machine guidance system that delivers real-time data in the cab — on everything from bucket positioning and bench height to ore bodies and volume of material cut and filled. That enables every operator to maximize machine efficiency, leading to better material management, more accurate grades and less rework and wear.
