Electric rope shovels offer the lowest cost-per-ton loading solution for long-life mines. They can load more material – more efficiently and more cost-effectively – than any other loading tool on the market. The electric rope shovel’s immense payload capability, low maintenance requirements, and high reliability make it Caterpillar’s lowest total-cost-per-unit loading tool available.
High Reliability, Low Maintenance and Long Life
Cat® Electric Rope Shovels are designed to have an operating life of 120,000 hours, making them a viable option for mines with estimated lives that meet or exceed a timeframe of 20 years.
Industry-leading safety features of the electric rope shovel protect your most valuable asset, your people, keeping operations running consistently.
Availability is crucial to your operation, so we use a continuous improvement process to re-design and re-engineer machine components and systems to achieve optimal results.
Based on your feedback, we constantly strive to make your electric rope shovel even more productive, easier to service and maintain, and operating at maximum efficiency to reduce your total cost of ownership.
