Work With Our Application Engineers to Find the Best Fit

As part of the Cat network, we can connect you with application engineers to find the best model for your job site and application. Our dragline recommendation process involves the following steps:

  • Gather information: First, our engineers collect information on your mine design criteria and select a few possible models.
  • Evaluate job site conditions: Then, they analyze your mine conditions in relation to their selection of potential draglines.
  • Determine size: Based on your mine's dimensions, our experts develop cut diagrams to refine your dragline size requirements.
  • Estimate production: Using the data collected, our engineers determine the cycle time and production estimates for each section of your dig plan.
  • Select model: Engineers cycle through this process as needed until they find a model and specifications that meet your production expectations.
