Cat® Electric Rope Shovel Series


The Cat® Operator Assist - Enhanced Motion Control system was designed, tested, and optimized to provide additional self-protection features to the 7495 Series Electric Rope Shovels without sacrificing productivity. Simplifying the dipper loading process allows operators to benefit from the enhanced machine capabilities.

Operators can focus on the truck loading process while improving thru-bank digging; reducing system stress and providing equal or better cycle times.

Compatible with operating 7495 Series shovels and standard on a new 7495 shovel, the operator Assist — Enhanced Motion Control system reduces machine downtime while maintaining productivity, ultimately improving cost per ton.

Avoid the leading cause of rope shovel downtime with the LatchFree™  Dipper System. The first successful solution to the number one cause of rope shovel downtime, the LatchFree Dipper System, replaces the maintenance-intense latch assembly with a strong steel link assembly. 

With the elimination of the maintenance associated with the latch assembly and an extended service interval, your rope shovel will spend more time loading, ultimately reducing your total cost of ownership.

Reducing the time your electric rope shovel is down for maintenance is critically important. Caterpillar's new propel drive system upgrade reduces downtime and lowers total cost of ownership by making servicing the propel drive shaft easier and less labor intense. 

Accessibility from the outboard side allows the drive tumbler and propel drive shaft to be replaced without removing the propel transmission. Plus, as the original equipment manufacturer, you can rest assured that all areas of the machine have been carefully analyzed. No modifications to the frame ensure proper fit and function. That's Reliability at Work.

What was once a regular maintenance event is no longer. The revolutionary wet disk snubber design is maintenance and adjustment free for two years.

Correlating with a dipper rebuild cycle at 12,000 hours,  the new set-and-forget snubber design works and wears with the dipper creating a more reliable, robust system.  

Better yet, the units can be rebuilt three times before they have to be replaced. Reduced maintenance costs along with increased service life leads to more productivity and lower total cost of ownership. That's Reliability at Work.
