6060 Hydraulic Mining Shovel

The Cat® 6060 Hydraulic Mining Shovel is the industry’s most popular hydraulic shovel in its size class. And for good reason. With its rated payload of 61 tonnes (67 tons), the Cat 6060 was the first shovel in the mining industry tailor-made for mines using 240-ton (218-tonne) haul trucks, providing an efficient truck-shovel system solution to meet production capacity in these environments. Today’s 6060 remains the ideal shovel for these applications, with improvements and enhancements in durability and reliability to deliver the uptime you demand. And its powerful engine and efficient hydraulic system allow higher working speeds for fast cycle times. The result is higher productivity and lower overall owning and operating costs.
