Benefits and Features

The revolutionary Adaptive Hydraulic System combines industry-leading and patent-pending dedicated pump-flow allocation technology with proven Cat features like independent oil cooling and boom float to generate flow and pressure, without waste – providing a 20% fuel efficiency advantage.

Additional efficiency is achieved via:

  • Variable oil flow
  • Variable fan speed

Sharing your commitment to safety, and driven by our commitment to Zero Harm, we work tirelessly to design the safest machines possible to protect your most important asset; your employees.

Some examples of the safety-enhancing features of the Cat 6020B Hydraulic Mining Shovel include the following:

This capability also allows for transporting of the power module away from the production area to allow service and repair in a safe, convenient, and clean environment.

The 6020B is offered with two variations of the C32 engine with ACERT Technology. One will meet Tier 4 Final emission standards and will be required for sale in higher regulated countries. The other option will emit equivalent to Tier 2 for lesser or non-regulated countries.

The 6020B meets Tier 4 Final emission standards using:

  • Cat NOx Reduction System – captures and cools a small quantity of exhaust gas, then routes it into the combustion chamber where it drives down temperatures and reduces NOx emissions.
  • Dual Diesel Oxidation Catalysts (DOCs) – use a chemical process called oxidation to condition exhaust gases to meet emission standards.
  • MEUI™-C Fuel System – delivers increased fuel efficiency, while further reducing NOx emissions. Ultra low sulfur diesel (ULSD) fuel and low ash oil are required.

The Tier 4 Final solution of the C32 ACERT engine has a maintenance free aftertreatment design, which uses the systems above to meet emissions standards. Designed to meet performance demands with lower cost of ownership, the primary advantages of this solution include:

The Cat 6020B is "MineStar ready", offering MineStar Health as a fully integrated option, as well as the Fleet, Terrain, and Detect as retrofit options.

  • Health – Health delivers critical event-based machine condition and operating data for your entire fleet. It includes comprehensive equipment health and asset monitoring capabilities with a wide range of diagnostic, analytic and reporting tools.
  • Fleet – Fleet provides real-time machine tracking, assignment and productivity management, providing a comprehensive overview of all your asset operations from anywhere in the world.
  • Terrain – Terrain enables high-precision management of drilling, dragline, grading and loading operations through the use of guidance technology. It increases machine productivity and provides you real-time feedback for improved efficiency.
  • Detect – Detect provides equipment operators with enhanced awareness for increased site safety, using a combination of radars, an in-cab display, and multiple cameras.
Please speak to your local dealer for more information on MineStar for the 6020B.

For added reliability, all lube lines supplying the swing roller bearing are located inside the superstructure for maximum protection.

Key Features:

  • Sized to match the 6020B mining shovel and your application
  • Cat G.E.T. systems
  • Various wear packages available to meet your site-specific requirements

The 6020B was designed to be an optimal pass-match with our popular 777 Series off-highway truck. It is also capable of pairing with the 785 Series mining truck, where applicable.

Flexible offerings accommodate various specialty front arrangements and the capability to work in mobile or fixed applications. With industry leading tool carrying capacity and reliability, HMS Specialty Solutions are ideally positioned to move more material at a lower cost and maximize profitability.

Versatile in nature, shovel solutions:

  • are designed with safety as top priority
  • have a proven durability you can rely on
  • are supported by an unparalleled network of dealers
  • are protected by Caterpillar’s standard warranty

Meeting the needs of today without compromising the needs of tomorrow is the goal for all Cat machinery. The commitment to helping you operate safely and sustainably is affirmed in the design of the 6020B hydraulic mining shovel.
