How to build a Cat 6030

Digger Blogger | 20:03, Thu May 03 2012

Hot on the heels of yesterday’s announcement that a Cat 6030 is going to be appearing at Hillhead 2012, have you ever wondered just what it takes to build a large mining machine? Well checkout this incredible time lapse video to get an idea of how much work goes into putting these earthmoving giants together.

The video shows a team of Finning engineers assembling the first Cat 6030 in the UK for Hargreave’s Surface Mining Division at the Tower Colliery open cast mine site in Hirwaun, Rhondda Cynon Taff, South Wales.

I believe that Scott Girvan, a good friend of the Digger Blog and Finning engineer is likely to be featured in this video. Hopefully Scott will let us know what part of the process he was involved in.
