With a bigger payload and more powerful engine, the new model Cat R1700 underground loader looks on paper to be major step-up from its predecessor. But how do the old and new models compare under real Australian conditions? A new production study undertaken in Western Australia’s goldfields shows the new R1700K offers mine operators major productivity and efficiency gains.
Mining and infrastructure contractors need equipment that is productive, reliable and built with the operator in mind. The new Cat® 745 Articulated Truck ticks all the boxes. Its efficient Cat C18 Engine and advanced traction control system let it carry large loads and go places other artics can’t. And operators will love the feature-packed, redesigned cabin.
Sometimes it pays to go first. Kalgoorlie-based contractor Hampton Mining and Civil snapped up the very first Cat 6015B excavator in the Australian market and has been rewarded with increased productivity and outstanding fuel efficiency.
Weighing in at 140 tonnes and with an 8.1 cubic metre bucket, the Cat 6015B fills a long-standing gap in the Australian hydraulic excavator market. But how does it stack up against its rivals? A new production study conducted in Western Australia’s Goldfields region shows the new Cat easily outperforms the competition for fuel economy and productivity.
