The model of reliability for Cat® hydraulic mining shovels, the Cat 6040 mining shovel offers improved uptime with a new undercarriage design and enhanced safety with standard features designed in accordance with the principles of MDG 41 and 15. And with a wealth of proven features like TriPower (FS only), fully-independent oil cooling and the CAMP system, this model is a top performer in the Cat hydraulic mining shovel line-up and the right choice for your mining equipment fleet. 

Delivering the productivity you demand with the durability you expect, the Cat 6040 is a powerful and durable digger designed to power through the toughest materials while withstanding the harshest digging conditions day in day out. This Cat mining shovel features powerful twin C32 engines and an efficient hydraulic system to generate fast cycle times and deliver peak productivity of up to 4,000 tonnes per hour. This makes the Cat 6040 the ideal solution for mining operations that value a low cost-per-ton model with superior ruggedness, with the twin-engine concept delivering greater uptime and productivity, enhanced safety and better serviceability through simplified troubleshooting. Moreover, with its legacy of durability and reliability through robust structures and heavy castings, the Cat 6040 regularly exceeds its target design life of 60,000 hours in the field. 

The design of the 6040 mining shovel has been updated in line with mining safety best practices and offers a range of safety-enhancing features to keep your operators and workers safe on-site. These features include precise bucket control to minimise the potential for material spill onto the cab, emergency shut-offs and safe and comfortable access and movement around the machine. Additionally, all hydraulic hoses and electrical wiring are separated for fire prevention, service areas are accessible via anti-slip walkways and trip hazards have been eliminated with the Cat 6040.
