Electric rope shovel

4100C BOSS

  • Nominal payload 90.7 mt 100 st
  • Dipper capacity 49 m3 64.0 yd3
  • Production 6 830 - 8 707 MTPH 7,198 - 9,598 TPH

High productivity for softer surfaces

If you’re looking for high productivity in environments that need low ground-bearing pressure, the 4100C BOSS is designed for softer operating surfaces. Built for double-side loading, this machine has extra reach and clearance for maximum load capacity.

  • Low ground bearing pressure compared to similar class loading tool
  • Calculations show 64-71% less emissions compared to hydraulic shovels on a pounds of CO2/tonne mined basis

Features and benefits

Twin leg handle

Engage the hardest of materials and easily focus on penetrating the bank with the time-tested P&H twin leg handle, instead of wasting energy twisting or rotating the dipper.

TRC series dipper

One of the hardest working pieces on your shovel, the 4100C BOSS features the latest in dipper technology with a low maintenance latching system, optimal toe penetration digging and ability to pass match shovels with trucks.

Delta style undercarriage

Minimize maintenance with a proven shoe and tumbler that requires minimal intervention and allows for operation in a loose track configuration.

Propel

Propel on demand provides rapid transfer to propel mode. Rapid transfers allow frequent positioning of the shovel to the bank resulting in faster cycle times and more efficient digging.

Two rugged P&H planetary gear cases of proven design independently transmit torque to the drive sprockets, producing the tractive effort required for fast, efficient propel and positioning operations.

P&H brand Delta drive low tension sprocket drive system with heavy duty cast crawler shoes.

Spring-set air release disc brakes – one per motor
