Fourth Caterpillar dozer to Yallourn

THE era of dredger coal mining at Yallourn Energy's namesake mine in Victoria, Australia ended this week with mine operator Roche Thiess Linfox (RTL) taking delivery of its fourth new state of the art D11R bulldozer.

The D11R Caterpillar dozers have the largest coal blades in the world, capable of carrying 90t of coal.

These dozers will replace the well-worn bucketwheel dredgers used at the mine since the 1950s.
