At Caterpillar, we’re always thinking of new ways to meet our customers’ needs. It’s how we constantly improve on the electric rope shovel and provide the extreme levels of productivity and cost-effectiveness that our global customers demand.
All specifications are based on a 32 m3 (42 yd3) dipper and standard 213.4 cm (84 in) treads.
One piece, forged, seamless tubular dipper handle and wide-spread boom point sheaves equipped with hoist ropes and dipper padlocks to stabilize dipper handle.

Ground Bearing Pressure
Ground bearing pressure is dependent upon many factors.
Dual-motor independent drive.
Two planetary gearboxes, each driven by a vertically mounted motor, are located on either side of the revolving frame. Dual-output pinion shafts from each gearbox engage the swing rack.
A planetary gearbox with dual-output pinions provides the hoist torque transfer from the electric motor to the hoist drum gear.
