TYPES OF GET AVAILABLE

Here are a few of the GET options for your electric rope shovel:

  • Adapters and edge protectors are reusable and easily installed. And wear caps have a tapered fit to their adapters, which makes them easy to remove.

  • Lip shrouds protect the lip from constant abrasive wear that shortens its lifespan. They are reusable and easy to install.

  • Wing shrouds protect the structural integrity of your bucket and sustain enhanced penetration. This minimizes wear and maintenance. 

  • Tips: Every Cat tip is designed for a unique balance of strength, penetration and wear life. Depending on your application, you’ll pick one or more of these:

    • General purpose
    • Pen abrasion
    • Abrasion
    • Impact
    • Oil sand penetration

 

SELECTING THE RIGHT ELECTRIC ROPE SHOVEL GET

When selecting GET for your electric rope shovel, it’s important to know your machine, the application and the environment of your site. You should assess whether the abrasion and impact at your site are low, moderate, high or extreme. Armed with that knowledge, your Cat dealer can help you choose powerful tools that resist breakage.
