The new Cat® 6015B Hydraulic Shovel meets your need to move more material at a lower cost, so you can achieve production targets, deliver on your commitments, meet deadlines and maximize your profitability. Load more, make more.
A powerful engine for faster loading cycles
Offering 606 kW (813 hp) of rated power via its single C27 ACERT engine, the 6015B is capable of providing class-leading cycle times and unmatched productivity.
The Cat C27 engine with ACERT Technology delivers power and reliability, ensuring top performance, high productivity, and exceptional service life. Its durability has been proven in heavy construction, quarry/aggregate, and mining applications alike; the versatility required of a 100 tonne (110 ton) hydraulic shovel.
The development of ACERT Technology began with the search for a better way to reduce diesel engine emissions, and culminated in a revolutionary engine design breakthrough that burns fuel more precisely than ever before. Lower combustion temperatures reduce emissions and prolong the life of lighter, more power-dense engine platforms. It also varies the injection timing based on factors like engine load and speed for optimum performance under a wide range of operating conditions, including mining.
Our engines are only as good as the service and support that stand behind them. Highly trained and experienced service technicians at your local Cat dealership are ready with whatever you need, wherever and whenever you need it. They know the Cat C27 ACERT engine inside and out, so they can promptly diagnose issues and keep your 6015B running at peak performance.
Designed to load trucks commonly used in heavy construction, quarry, and mining applications
Standard equipped with a large, 8.1 m3 (10.6 yd3) bucket, the 6015B is designed to optimally pass popular Cat 773, 775, and 777 trucks, at 4, 5, and 7 passes, respectively. This is a one pass advantage over leading standard equipped shovels in its class. When consistently achieved, the result is more material moved, and greater profit.
With its ability to pair with trucks most commonly found in heavy construction, quarry/aggregate, and small to mid-size mining applications across the globe, 6015B demonstrates the versatility required of a 100 tonne (110 ton) shovel to be an appropriate and productive fit for any of these environments.
Improved productivity, operational efficiency, and serviceability
Cat buckets are designed to match your Cat 6015B mining shovel, providing optimum payload and machine efficiency while protecting your investment. Bucket wear surfaces are armored with replaceable wear materials to extend the life of your bucket. Cat buckets are easy to rebuild, with all parts available through your Cat dealer. Trust Cat to give you long service life without adding excessive weight.
General Duty buckets are sized for low density materials, providing maximum payload in general duty applications such as top soil.
Heavy Duty buckets are suited for less dense rock and soils. The Heavy Duty wear package includes lip shrouds to fully guard the bucket lip and has hardened wear bars in the highest wear areas.
Extreme Duty buckets are the most heavily guarded for use in dense rock and aggressive digging conditions. It features lip shrouds as well as hardened wear material across the entire bucket surface.
The Coal bucket for the 6015B uses the General Duty wear package with guarding in the most critical areas and it’s sized to match the density of coal to provide optimum productivity.
Increase your operational efficiency and productivity with C70 hammerless Cat G.E.T. designed specifically for the 6015B hydraulic mining shovel. By designing our own G.E.T. in-house, we are able to take a production focus, rather than a component focus, to optimize performance across the entire machine. And like all Cat G.E.T., it is fully supported by your local Cat dealer.
Feel and familiarity of a construction HEX cab; robustness and durability for tough applications
A modified version of the Cat HEX cab, the 6015B cab has literally logged hundreds of thousands of hours digging in tough applications across the globe. You can rest assured that it will meet the demands of your application, as well as the comfort and safety requirements of your operators.
Excellent stability, maneuverability, lift capacity, and component life
Cat exclusive Positive Pin Retention (PPR) Sealed and Greased Track design resists pin walking and link cracking for reliable sealing and maximum track life.
Proven durability you can rely on
To extend service life and ensure that your 6015B keeps producing, our structures are designed for durability and dependability. Extended performance in the harsh digging conditions you face daily is accomplished through selection of high-strength steels and rugged castings, joined and thermally stress-relieved to create a reliable external shell.
The 6015B 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.
Providing superior stability, extending component life, and ultimately improving machine uptime, our swing system includes a unique cross roller bearing, with sealed internal gearing, connected to an automatic lubrication system.
Exceptional structural strength and durability is afforded by mounting the swing bearing directly to the 6015B carbody, eliminating collar welds.
Protecting against surface wear, while preserving structural toughness in the main bearing body, 6015B swing bearing rings are made of specially heat-treated steel, and raceways are induction hardened.
All 6015B structures have been fully tested and validated at our state-of-the-art proving ground in Tucson, AZ (USA).
Lower fuel cost; Lower total cost of ownership
Proprietary Cat integrated engine control technologies keep the engine running at or near the rated speed to maintain an optimized balance of power and fuel efficiency. This technology prevents large drops in engine speed, followed by over speeds, often observed in older equipment. It provides the following benefits:
Load more material, at lower cost, with energy recovery capability
Kinetic energy captured during the swing motion is fed back into the system during deceleration, providing more power to drive the main and auxiliary pumps. Energy is saved during deceleration, because braking occurs hydrostatically with pump displacement controls, as opposed to throttling flow through breaking valves as in open circuit swing systems.
Energy is saved during swing via speed control, ensuring that only the minimum necessary oil flow is utilized at any given time, and providing smooth acceleration and deceleration for fast cycles.
Efficient performance from a reliable, clean, and responsive system
More efficient hydraulic pump utilization, reduced energy losses, and increased fuel savings are realized with our innovative, automatic flow proportioning technology.
Smooth, efficient operation, and controllability is afforded by our Cat Proportional Priority Pressure Compensating (PPPC) technology. PPPC ensures that flow is proportional, according to demands, so individual functions – boom, stick, and bucket – are automatically prioritized during simultaneous operations.
Maximized hydraulic efficiency is delivered via our flow-on-demand system, designed with four pumps; three for implement and travel, and one for swing. Pressure and flow compensation deliver only as much flow as needed to reduce heat build-up and component wear.
The hydraulic system design has been optimized for peak performance and reliability, featuring a newly designed filtration system.
To maximize hydraulic efficiency, our oil cooling system is independent of engine cooling, providing cooling on demand.
Resulting in greater fuel economy, the temperature controlled variable speed fan provides cooling on demand to maintain optimum hydraulic fluid temperature.
