Meeting Tomorrow’s Production Targets in Low & Medium Seams

For low seam shearer applications, the most compact Cat solution yet will be there to deliver the results you expect: the new Cat EL1000. This latest addition to the successful range of Cat longwall shearers will cover seam heights from 63 to 156 inches (1.6 to 3.9 meters). With cutting power of 1600 hp (2 x 500 kW) and haulage power of 2 x 134 hp (2 x 100 kW), the EL1000 represents a compact powerhouse for high productivity, making maximum impact in low and medium seams.

The EL1000 shearer has a unique one-piece mainframe that not only protects all the modular components but also enables selective overhaul and modular unit exchange for the most efficient maintenance in the industry.
The extremely powerful PMC® Evo-S control system offers enhanced automation and communication featuring state-of-the-art Ethernet communication. In consistent geological conditions the EL1000 can be operated in automated mode, keeping your personnel and productivity in the “safe zone”.
