Cat delivers first ‘dressed’ excavator


Caterpillar has shipped its first hydraulic mining shovel from the former Bucyrus factory in Dortmund, Germany. In early October, the Caterpillar 6030, painted in full Cat trade dress, was commissioned at Yara International’s phosphate mine operated by E. Hartikainen Oy, located near Siilinjärvi, Finland.

The 319t mining shovel is the first Cat branded product from the former Bucyrus line to start operation at a mine. The machine, know as an RH120E under the O&K/Terex/Bucyrus banners, also makes history as the first shovel in that line to go into operation in Finland.

The original purchase agreement for the shovel was signed in January 2011 and stipulated that the machine would be delivered in Bucyrus trade dress. But following closing of the acquisition on July 8, and through the cooperative efforts of the former Bucyrus regional sales organisation and the Finnish Caterpillar dealer, Wihuri Oy Witraktor, the mining contractor was given the option to change to Caterpillar trade dress.
