RELIABILITY AT WORK

Cat® Electric Rope Shovels

Cat® Electric Rope Shovels


Cat® Electric Rope Shovels can load more material — more efficiently and more cost-effectively — than any other loading tool on the market. They combine immense payload capability with low maintenance requirements and high reliability to deliver the lowest cost-per-ton loading solution for long-life mines. With an operating life of 120,000 hours, they are a viable option for mines with estimated lives that meet or exceed a time frame of 20 years.

Support to maximize life — and profitability

The investment in an electric rope shovel is a long-term partnership. With the support of the global Cat dealer network along with Caterpillar’s technical resources, you can expect a long, productive life from your rope shovel. We help maximize availability and increase your return on investment through:

  • Support services (training, site assessment, parts planning, etc.)
  • Retrofits/machine overhaul
  • Service contracts
  • Replacement parts
