No matter what you mine or where you mine it, your local Cat dealer is there to help you get the maximum value from your investment in Cat equipment. They're also your source for information on pricing, availability, aftermarket solutions and more.

   

WHY CHOOSE THE 6060?

Hydraulic Optimization

Conventional hydraulic systems operate all pumps at the maximum required cylinder flow and pressure, regardless of the demand from individual circuits.  The next-generation 6060 takes a different approach, dynamically assigning individual pumps or groups of pumps to deliver the exact flow and pressure that each hydraulic function requires. Called Hydraulic Optimization, this approach saves fuel and makes machines up to 15% more efficient than shovels without it.

Hydraulic Optimization:

  • Cuts down on waste
  • Eliminates metering losses
  • Reduces excess heat
  • Prolongs component lives
  • Conserves energy

OPERATOR ASSIST

Cat Operator Assist – Enhanced Motion Control boosts operator efficiency, reduces fatigue, and helps inexperienced operators more confidently load material. This feature also reduces contact of the linkage and cylinder, lowering maintenance costs, increasing component life and improving structural durability.  

GET THE INFORMATION YOU NEED

Key to connectivity is an improved Cat Product Link Elite (PLE) system, which boosts connectivity and increases the availability of data provided by the 6060.  Product Link Elite enables your shovel to collect and transmit information into locally hosted or cloud-hosted applications, such as Cat MineStar Health Office, Health Equipment Insights, Equipment Care Advisor or Vision Link. 

All Cat Hydraulic Mining Shovels leave the factory with PLE installed, but conversion kits are available for older models already in the field.  This onboard technology opens the door for industry-leading equipment health and condition monitoring services from Caterpillar and your local Cat dealer.   Product Link Elite delivers accurate, timely and useful information about the location, utilization, and condition of your equipment — the kind of information that can make a huge difference in the efficiency and costs of your entire operation.

Operators enjoy a spacious environment with patented 3-seat design and superior insulation that reduces noise and temperature. The cab features a new air conditioning system, Cat Next Gen heated and cooled comfort seat, elevated full-size trainer seat and laptop desk and fold-away auxiliary seat.
