Overview

Smart. Precise. Powerful.

Designed for large bore hole production drilling, Caterpillar’s latest ultra-class drill provides the optimal mix of on-board air, feed force, rotary torque and machine mobility. It is a powerful, rugged machine that can stand up to the conditions of any site and deliver reliable performance with high availability.

Benefits

The Backbone of the Machine Cat Electronics

The MD6380 is controlled through proven Cat electronics, with an electronic architecture your technicians are familiar with from other Cat machines. Integrated machine protective features and interlocks help keep your operators safe, and the machine up and running by preventing potential failures or misuse. With Cat Electronic Technician (Cat ET), troubleshooting is quick and easy. The MD6380’s electronics also provide a common platform for the integration of a number of future autonomy solutions.

Efficiently Manage Loads Matched Powertrain

The MD6380’s powertrain is designed to efficiently manage loads generated by the compressor and hydraulics, delivering better fuel economy. The MD6380’s compressor is configured with electronic regulation and variable volume air control, allowing the driller to perfectly match the compressor output to drill tool and application needs. It also lowers stand-by pressures while the machine is in idle, further improving fuel consumption. The powertrain offers the durability you expect from a Cat machine, with longer service intervals and higher availability.

Productive and Efficient Cat Technology

A number of technology options make the MD6380 even more productive and efficient. Machine health and performance monitoring technologies help you make sure you’re getting the most out of your drill at all times.

The machine offers a number of automated functions through Drill Assist: including auto level, auto retract jacks, auto raise and lower mast, and auto drill (single or multi pass). The drill depth monitoring system helps to reduce over- and under-drilling, reducing the need for rework.

The MD6380 incorporates Cat Terrain for Drilling, which provides precise hole location, production reporting and strata reporting. Terrain seamlessly connects to Cat Command, offering you a path to autonomous drilling.
