Above-ground surface mining equipment
The majority of the surface mining equipment in the world comes from one company: Caterpillar. And for good reason. Cat® equipment is designed to lower cost per ton by providing productive and reliable performance. Our product line is unmatched, with equipment for drilling, digging and cutting; moving and hauling material; and maintaining efficient mine sites.
Articulated trucks, belt systems, draglines and drills for the mining industry
Our surface mining products include articulated trucks, belt systems, draglines, drills, electric rope shovels, highwall miner, hydraulic shovels, mining trucks, unit rig, motor graders, off-highway trucks, open bowl scrapers, track-type tractors, wheel dozers, and wheel loaders.
Rugged underground mining equipment
As miners go deeper underground to provide the materials on which the world depends, they need safe, dependable equipment designed to handle these demanding applications. From drills, loaders and trucks for hard rock applications, to customized systems for longwall mining, and precision-engineered products for room and pillar mining – no one provides more rugged and reliable underground mining equipment than Caterpillar.
Underground drills, loaders, trucks and belt systems
Underground mining products include belt systems, hard rock, underground drills, underground loaders, underground trucks, long wall, automation, conveyor systems, CST drive systems, plow systems, roof supports, roof support carriers, shearers, room and pillar, continuous miners, feeder breakers, haulage systems, roof bolters, and utility vehicles.

And we strive to develop equipment that has more respect for the air we breathe and the earth we share.
