Cat® 6015 used in Demolition?

On a traditional demolition job, you will find a mix of heavy machinery. From excavators to skid steers, all have their unique functions. When bidding on jobs, you want to perform work faster, cheaper and safer than other demolition teams. Can the Cat® 6015 Hydraulic Shovel have a place in that mix? What machines are most commonly used in demolition?

No demolition job would be complete without an excavator.

It can perform a variety of tasks, especially razing and demolition. By simply adding accessories and attachments, an excavator becomes a multi-use machine that offers flexibility across the site.

Compact track loaders also have several uses in demolition.

These machines offer serious power capability and are commonly used for clearing debris on a demolition job, loading it into trucks to be hauled away.

Skid steer loaders

offer a similar range of functions, but also offer the ability to maneuver in tight areas. Skid steer tool attachments also increase the capability of a single machine on the job site.

Dozers are a staple for most construction, excavation and demolition businesses.

Dozers can be used to move substantial amounts of material, for clearing sites and scraping away material.

What place does the Cat 6015 Hydraulic Shovel have on this list? Consider that the Cat 6015 allows you to move massive amounts of material at a lower cost, which can help your team hit production targets and meet deadlines. Like most excavators, attachments are occasionally used with the Cat 6015 to leverage the machine’s massive hydraulic power and extensive reach.

Cleveland Brothers Equipment Co. partnered with customer Independence Excavating and took these capabilities to the next level. By combining the Cat 6015B with a Fortress FS Series Mobile Shear and extending the reach of the machine with a Pierce Pacific intermediate boom, the Cleveland Brothers team was able to create a one-of-a-kind demolition machine capable of reaching, clearing and cutting the hardest materials in the most difficult to reach places.
