New Mining-class Shovel for Small- to Medium-size Operations
The 6015B is built upon the robust 5110B platform. The boom and stick utilize high-strength steel and rugged castings that are joined and thermally stress relieved for optimum structural life and resistance to impact and wear in difficult digging conditions. Box section design provides superior rigidity and strength, and heavy-duty castings are used in high load areas to add exceptional strength and durability. The 6015B swing system includes a unique cross roller bearing with sealed internal gearing, connected to an automatic lubrication system. Adding further to reliability, the undercarriage is a Caterpillar design that leverages proven Cat components. A newly designed hydraulic filtration system has been incorporated into the 6015B design. A separate kidney loop provides continuous filtration and optimum oil cleanliness at all times, ensuring consistent oil cleanliness for dependable hydraulic system performance.
The 6015B features conveniently located
access and egress with walkways for safe
movement around the machine and an
optional 45° powered access stairway. The
cab is pressurized to keep dust out, and the
climate control system is fully automatic,
allowing for consistent in-cab temperature
and operator comfort in any weather conditions.
The controls are ergonomic with
adjustable joystick console height, independent
of the seat, to suit operator preference.
