6040 Hydraulic Mining Shovel

Product description

The Cat® 6040 Hydraulic Mining Shovel is trusted on sites around the world — consistently delivering the the productivity you demand with the durability you expect. This proven shovel is known for top performance and high reliability, backed by the on-the-ground support of the Cat dealer network.

But we’re always looking for ways to make the 6040 better. We’ve made improvements that enable peak production — delivering fast cycle times and high digging forces. We’ve increased uptime by making the 6040 more reliable and easier to service. And it’s now available for both highly regulated and lesser regulated countries with engines that meet U.S. EPA Tier 4 Final/EU Stage V standards without the need for DEF — saving time and cost during maintenance.
