Since that first steam shovel built in 1882, we have focused on finding new and innovative ways to improve our products. Through different power sources, applications and even company names, the one common thread has been our dedication to giving our customers better and more productive digging and loading tools. This dedication has helped make mining shovels what they are today. We pioneered the electric rope shovel for mining, building the first all-electric AC-driven machine of its kind. We were one of the...

co u n t s In the mining industry, a high degree of productivity is the key to a profitable operation. That’s why we do everything we can to make sure you get maximum production from your primary loading tools. Our patented FastFil electric rope shovel dippers fill up quickly with no empty pockets, getting the most from every cycle. FastFil dippers are trapezoidal, which eliminates the void that occurs at the back of a traditional dipper.   n some I applications, this helps them achieve fill factors greater than 100 percent in sizes up to 65 cubic yards (49.7 cubic meters). Our front-shovel...
