Benefits and Features

OPERATOR STATION

MD6200 has all of the comfort and control you expect from a Cat machine.

  • Multifunction joystick controls and touchscreens are easy and intuitive to use.
  • Three cameras give the operator excellent visibility.
  • An optional heated and ventilated seat keeps your operator comfortable and productive throughout the shift.

SMALL SHIPPING ENVELOPE

With the smallest shipping envelope in-class and it's low height, MD6200 can be transported with the mast on and is highly maneuverable on the job site.

The Cat® 336 excavator-style undercarriage provides increased stability and durability.

MONITOR PERFORMANCE AND TROUBLESHOOT EASILY

The MD6200 shares electronic architecture with other Cat machines.

  • Troubleshooting is quick and easy with Cat ET.
  • Product Link Elite lets you track performance in real time.
  • Drill health and production monitoring has integrated machine protection features and interlocks.

DRILL ASSIST AND CAT TERRAIN

Drill Assist offers auto level, auto retract jacks, auto raise and lower mast, and auto drill.

  • Drill depth meter helps reduce over and under-drilling.
  • Machine health and performance monitoring keep your machine running productively.
  • Cat Terrain ready.

VARIABLE AIR VOLUME FOR REDUCED FUEL CONSUMPTION

There are performance and fuel consumption benefits through electronic control strategies. The engine is matched to hydraulics and compressor for increased efficiency: Max operating engine rpm 1800 Engine idle rpm is reduced to 700 (Tier 2 and 4) Engine rpm is demand-based (both hydraulic and compressor) Variable volume air control to match application.

NEGATIVE ANGLE FOR PRE-SPLIT DRILLING

Angle drill from 30° to –15° (in 5° increments). 30° to vertical for production drilling or vertical to –15°for pre-split and developmental drilling.
