Cat adds to heavy mining shovel line-up
The 6020B is the first machine in its class with a three-man cab
Caterpillar continues to build its mining shovel business with the launch of the 6020B, a 220tonne model offering a 22tonne bucket payload, which makes it an ideal match for the 777G rigid dump truck.
The machine has a large operator’s cab with three seats, enough for a trainer and an observer, which is said to be a first in this size class.
The modular construction is designed for simplicity and reliability and the machine features a walk-through power module, providing easy access to service points on the 778kW single engine.
The machine should be commercially available in the fourth quarter of the year.
