Building on the outstanding productivity that’s seen it become the most-sold 600-tonne class hydraulic shovel in the world, the Next Generation Cat®6060 hydraulic mining shovel is now heavier and more rigid with an all-new Cat Heavy Duty undercarriage and new structural designs for frames and face shovel stick. Combining everything you love about previous generations of the 6060 with everything you demand from Caterpillar, the new Cat 6060 is a powerful, industry-leading hydraulic mining shovel that enhances your business’s production capacity and works harder and lasts longer to lower your overall owning and operating costs.

With its rated payload of 61 tonnes, the 6060 is tailormade to 4-pass load 218-227 tonne off-highway trucks, like the Cat 793 and 5-pass load 291 tonne trucks like the Cat 794 AC. Enhanced with a more hydraulic system, the 6060 mining shovel facilitates higher working speeds to deliver faster cycle times and higher productivity. And to meet your site-specific needs while maintaining a low operational costs that keep businesses profitable, the Cat 6060 hydraulic mining shovel features the durable and performance-proven Cat 3512E engine. Delivering high power output, proven reliability and excellent fuel efficiency across even the most challenging mine site conditions, Cat 3512E engines are renowned for their unsurpassed performance and durability. 

As a Cat hydraulic mining shovel, the new Cat 6060 delivers the highest operator safety and comfort standards, including a larger front window and integrated floor window that delivers more than 40% greater visibility over previous models. Featuring a redesigned state-of-the-art operator cab to improve operator efficiency, this Cat mining shovel provides a safe, comfortable and productivity-enhancing experience. Additional safety upgrades with the 6060 include improved machine access, additional shut-off switches, minimised trip hazards and precise bucket control.
