Equipment Rental for the Mining Industry

Equipment Rental for the Mining Industry

Extracting ores, precious metals and minerals from the earth is a demanding process that takes a toll on heavy equipment. For many mining operations, renting offers the most convenient and cost-effective equipment acquisition solution. Renting provides a host of benefits, such as making the ideal match between machine and application to increase productivity and efficiency, reducing maintenance and repair costs, using the most up-to-date technology and gaining more financial flexibility. 

The Cat® Rental Store offers a wide selection of high-quality mining equipment rentals at affordable rates. Choose late-model products from Caterpillar and other leading manufacturers for surface and underground mining applications.

What Types of Mining Equipment Rentals Are Available?

You'll find no shortage of options when it comes to equipment rentals for the mining industry. Examples of some of the most in-demand machines include:

  • Draglines: A dragline is a valuable surface mining machine that uses a bucket attached to a wire cable to remove overburden in strip and open-pit mining operations.
  • Electric rope shovelsAlso known as power shovels, these tools function much like an excavator to dig and load earth and rock during the mineral extraction process.
  • Drills: Rotary and track drills cut precise holes for blasting in underground mining applications.
  • Highwall miners: A highwall miner uses a specially designed cutter module to extract coal from exposed seams.
  • Longwall miners: Longwall mining systems consist of shears mounted on hydraulic ceiling supports that create long, single slices of coal.
  • Surface mining conveyor systems: Conveying equipment helps to move large volumes of mined materials over long distances. 
  • Room and pillar: These underground mining systems extract mined materials (typically coal, gypsum, uranium or iron) across a horizontal plane. 
  • Hard rock: Hard rock mining applications can benefit from a wide range of equipment such as rock flow and rock straight systems, as well as underground mining trucks and load-haul-dump loaders.

 Many types of general-use earthmoving equipment also contribute to mining operations. Examples include hydraulic excavators, skid steer loaders, articulated trucks, backhoes, bulldozers and cranes.
