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.

SAFETY

  • Excellent visibility thanks to cab position that provides clear view to the digging and loading areas, floor window that provides a view to the tracks, LED lighting, and optional camera monitoring system.
  • Emergency egress ladder with a self-closing door located in direct proximity to the cab.
  • Safer access with 45-degree powered access stairway that features emergency lowering via a nitrogen accumulator, which ensures it remains operational even when engines shut off.
  • Safer electrical and/or mechanical maintenance thanks to lockable starter and battery isolation switch cabinet.
  • Safer service with improved sealing between engines and hydraulic pumps, improved routing and separation of hydraulic lines and electric cables.

OPERATOR CAB

  • Improved operator comfort with Cat Next Gen heated and cooled seat and integrated joysticks.
  • First-in-class and patented 3-seat design, including elevated full-size trainer’s seat and laptop work desk.
  • New and improved air conditioning system.
  • Reduced noise and temperature control thanks to superior insulation.
  • Productivity-boosting Operator Assist – Enhanced Motion Control, which reduces fatigue and helps inexperienced operators more confidently load material.

RELIABILITY & DURABILITY

  • Improved structures, including increased weight, strengthened superstructure and increased thickness in several locations.
  • 33% longer service life for new and enlarged slew ring.
  • New undercarriage with long-life components, frame and electronics.
  • New crawler frame and Cat undercarriage with HD rollers, HD idlers, HD track, and track tensioning.
  • New and improved engine design that improves reliability and extends gallons consumed before first overhaul by 10%, which also contributes to longer engine life.

PRODUCTIVITY & PERFORMANCE

  • Up to 15% greater efficiency through Hydraulic Optimization, which dynamically assigns individual pumps or groups of pumps to deliver the exact flow and pressure that each hydraulic function requires.
  • Faster cycle times and improved energy efficiency delivered by closed-loop swing system, which also generates less heat.
  • Greater operator control thanks to five circuit hydraulics that allow for two cylinder motions, two travel motions, and swing to be controlled simultaneously.
  • Easier and faster face shovel operation with unique TriPower face shovel design, which generates superior mechanical leverage and control.
  • Increased productivity and greater uptime with the twin engine concept, which enables up to 65% of full production with a single engine.

BUCKETS & GET

  • Buckets and ground engaging tools (GET) designed to maximize durability and productivity and ideally matched to your shovel and application.
  • Integrated to work as part of a machine system — helping you achieve high productivity and the lowest cost per ton.
  • Variety of sizes and material densities for the ideal match to your shovel and application.
  • Deliver optimal payload when combined with Cat GET and wear components.
  • Wear packages that protect your investment, including special liner material and lip shroud, wing shrouds and heel shrouds.

CONNECTIVITY & TECHNOLOGY

  • Greater connectivity with improved Product Link™ Elite system, which increases the availability of data provided by the 6060.
  • Additional performance and reliability advantages through integration of proven and validated Cat electronics.
  • Intuitive, informative onboard electronics that help operators be more productive.
  • Enhanced diagnostic capabilities and troubleshooting functions with factory-installed Monitoring and Diagnostic System.
  • Connectivity features and the integration of Cat MineStar™ Health offerings enable a proactive approach to maintenance.

SERVICEABILITY

  • More room in the service compartment, plus easy access to slew gearboxes, rotary distributor, oil cooler and more.
  • Clear arrangement of components on the superstructure for easy access and serviceability.
  • Hose assemblies that can be built locally using all Cat material.
  • Access to Cat Electronic Technician, which helps dealer service personnel more easily diagnose and prevent issues.
  • Reduced maintenance downtime thanks to exchange intervals for engine oil and engine filters that have been increased from 500 to 1,000 hours

SUSTAINABILITY

  • Reduced fuel burn thanks to 10% improvement in hydraulic efficiency.
  • Reduced emissions with engines that satisfy Tier 4 standards and eliminate the need for Diesel Exhaust Fluid (DEF) — saving time and cost during maintenance.
  • Less heat and improved efficiency with the closed-loop swing circuit.
  • Reduced owning and operating costs thanks to increased commonality of systems and components, plus a reduction in unique part numbers.
  • Preservation of raw materials, energy conservation and reduced emissions through the Cat Reman program, which returns end-of-life components to like-new condition.
