Coal Bowl Scraper Benefits
Dependable Coal Management and Hauling
Dual Engines allow Coal Bowl Scrapers to achieve maximum payloads and deliver fast cycle times.
All-Wheel-Drive allows the machine to work effectively in poor underfoot conditions and climb piles of slippery, loose coal.
Large Capacity Coal Bowls
Coal Bowls are longer and higher than standard scraper bowls, which allows you to haul 50 cubic yards (38 cubic meters) with a 637G.
Coal bowl scrapers are effective in compacting coal, which reduces the risk of spontaneous combustion of coal in the stockpile by eliminating the air spaces.
Coal Stockpile Management
Coal Bowl Scrapers are the ideal stockpile management tool.
Maintaining the Coal Stockpile
Coal Bowl Scrapers are effective in compacting coal, which reduces the possibility of spontaneous combustion in the coal stockpile. This allows your company to meet plant safety regulations and eliminates the need for additional compaction equipment.
Reclaiming Coal from the Stockpile
When incoming coal shipments cannot satisfy your coal burn requirements, you need a way to reclaim the coal off the stockpile. Coal Bowl Scrapers can move coal from the stockpile to the inlet supply of the plant.
Building the Coal Stockpile
Coal Bowl Scrapers allow you to create your coal stockpile by self-loading coal in the receiving area, hauling it to the stockpile area, and dumping coal in thin lifts.

Proven components combine to deliver the most durable, reliable power train in the industry, keeping costs low and production high.
Proven Cat engines provide the power and torque rise for excellent lugging in tough loading conditions.
The fuel system and Electronic Control Module on the C18 tractor engine economically and precisely deliver fuel.
High injection pressures, independent of engine speed, decrease smoke and emissions while improving response.
Variable Injection Timing
Variable injection timing and duration improve fuel efficiency and cold starting, decrease smoke and emissions.
Injection Rate Shaping
Injection rate shaping reduces emission and engine noise.
Fewer mechanical parts in the fuel system improves reliability.
Electronic control provides automatic altitude deration and automatic air filter restriction deration.
Multiple Horsepower Ratings
Multiple horsepower ratings limit output in first and second gears unless the operator has the auger or elevator engaged.
Neutral Start Control
Neutral start control prevents engine from starting unless transmission is in neutral.
Throttle back-up provides the operator with a preset engine speed control in the event of a throttle input failure.
The throttle lock allows the operator the capability of locking both engines at any operating level.
Directional Shift Management
Directional shift management prevents the operator from shifting out of neutral when engine rpm is above a preset level.
Controlled Throttle Shifting
Controlled throttle shifting increases drivetrain life by reducing the fuel injection rate just prior to shifting.
Automatic Ether Starting Aid
Automatic ether starting aid greatly improves cold weather starting.
Electronic Ground Level Shutoff
Electronic ground level shutoff enables the operator to stop the engine from the ground with the flip of a switch.
Steel Spacer Plate
Steel spacer plate between the block and head eliminates the need for counterbores and helps prevent associated cracking problems.
Oil-cooled pistons and full-length water-cooled cylinder liners provide maximum heat transfer for longer component life.
The aftercooler lowers intake charge air temperature to increase power and reduce thermal stresses that can cause premature wear of pistons, rings, and liners.
Engine Oil Cooler
Engine oil cooler maintains optimum oil temperature for proper cooling and longer lubricant life.
Laminated thermal-shield improves tractor protection by reducing the temperature of exposed engine surfaces, cools engine and operating compartments, extends hose and wiring life.
Direct Injection Fuel System
Direct injection fuel system is adjustment-free with individual injection pumps and valves.
Optional Hydraulic Retarder
An optional hydraulic retarder can extend brake life.
Eight-speed power shift transmission provides automatic, on-the-go shifting for simple, reliable operation.
Neutral Coast Inhibitor Control
Neutral coast inhibitor control helps prevent the transmission from shifting to neutral at speeds above 8.1 km/h (5 mph).
Top Gear Control
Top gear control helps prevent shifting above a programmed gear to better regulate haul road speeds.
Electronic Programmable Transmission Control (EPTC II)
Electronic Programmable Transmission Control (EPTC II) records both current and intermittent faults.
Electronically Controlled Cushion Hitch
Smoother ride improves productivity.
The Caterpillar electronically controlled cushion hitch design dampens shocks to provide a smoother ride.
Nitrogen-over-oil accumulators absorb and dampen road shocks.
Cushion Hitch Lock
Electronically controlled cushion hitch locks down for positive control of the cutting edge during loading and dumping.
Double Kingbolt Design
Double kingbolt design withstands high external forces and allows easy installation and removal.
Extensive use of steel castings eliminates many welded joints, making a strong hitch.
Low, wide, large-capacity scraper bowl design boosts production and tandem power increases efficiency.
Caterpillar Coal Scraper bowls come from the factory especially built for coal handling.
An auger mechanism in the bowl improves self-loading capabilities by lifting material off of the cutting edge and carrying it to the top of the load.
A coal-handling scraper has to keep working around the clock, in all kinds of weather and conditions.
Comfort and control increase operator efficiency.
Standard rubber-mounted cab reduces noise and vibration for comfortable, shift-long operation.
