Overview

COMPACT POWERHOUSE FOR LOW AND MEDIUM SEAM HEIGHTS

The Cat EL1000 features a robust, modular design, designed for top productivity, enhanced safety and the best reliability in the industry. Using high cutting and haulage power, this compact powerhouse makes maximum impact in low and medium coal seams. Equipped with a state-of-the-art automation, it delivers efficient cycle times and cutting consistency with face alignment and horizon control.

Benefits

Advanced Automation

The Cat PMC-S control system delivers efficient control of the shearer. The modular design allows individual configuration – from basic monitoring and protection to advanced automation and data transmission.

Maximum Power

High-powered ranging arms and haulage units ensure world-class production in the toughest mining conditions.

Modularity is Key

The mainframe not only offers maximum protection of major units – its fully modular construction means versatility in application as well as independent replacement of units.
