7495 HF Electric Rope Shovel

Electric rope shovels have been successfully removing overburden and ore on mine sites around the world for more than a century. Driven by a vision to make these highly productive machines safer, more reliable and even more productive, we challenged the status quo and built an electric rope shovel that’s better.

Main Structures

Planetary Propel Dual-motor independent drive
Swing Two planetary gearboxes, each driven by a vertically mounted motor, are located on either side of the revolving frame. Dual-output pinion shafts from each gearbox engage the swing rack.
Crawler Dimensions - Overall Width 317.5 cm (125 in) Treads 41.67in
Hoist A planetary gearbox with dual-output pinions provides the hoist torque transfer from the electric motor to the hoist drum gear.
Ground Bearing Pressure - Note Ground bearing pressure is dependent upon many factors
Upper Works Overall Width - Including Standard Walkways 41.99in
Ground Bearing Pressure - Total Effective Bearing Area (317.5 cm/125 in) Treads 57 m2 (248 kPa); 614 ft2 (36 psi)
