A nosecone exchange service you won't find anywhere else

Coxons is the only business in Australia to offer a true nosecone exchange service. Our range of available nosecones and cooling modules is unrivalled. We perform service magazine updates and can upgrade your truck or dozer to the latest cooling arrangement if required.

We can also overhaul your nosecone using exchange components, usually within 3 to 5 days. Overhauling your nosecone is beneficial when an exchange is unavailable, if you have labour shortages onsite or if you prefer to keep your own iron.

  • Reduce equipment downtime, resulting in huge cost saving
  • Minimise risks onsite
  • Maintain, upgrade, and standardise your fleet's nosecone modules
  • Work smarter by combining your maintenance strategies
Coxons dozer nosecone

Coxons were approached by BHP to exchange Caterpillar 797F nosecones for multiple mining sites. Our team were able to reduce shutdown time by 2 days, saving huge costs on equipment downtime for BHP.


Coxons overhauled a D11T nosecone module for Glencore in less than three days. This was achieved with our extended operating hours and access to exchange components including radiators and aftercoolers.


After an emergency breakdown, Coxons was approached to supply a Caterpillar D11T dozer nosecone to a BHP mining site. An exchange module was sent within 12 hours, achieving minimal downtime.


Coxons were approached to exchange multiple 793F nosecones for BHP's Goonyella Mine. Our exchange nosecones were custom built so BHP could standardise their trucks to match the latest Caterpillar updates.


A Thiess mining site used our parts exchange program to overhaul a fleet of 793F trucks. Industrial radiators were sent to the site and swapped out every three weeks, reducing costly downtime.

Are genuine parts used to rebuild nosecone modules?

We use genuine parts for all nosecone rebuilds. This ensures your nosecone is rebuilt to or above OEM standards.

How fast can you send a nosecone module to my site

It really depends on availability. If we already have the exchange nosecone module rebuilt, it can be dispatched immediately. If it needs to be rebuilt or tailored to suit your cooling arrangement it may take a couple of days before dispatch.

We recommend clients approach us to book their planned maintenance in advance in order to guarantee availability when required.

How is a nosecone exchange different from a service exchange?

Our nosecone exchange service is a smarter and faster maintenance solution for your mining equipment. A typical service exchange generally involves changing out only one component.

Your current cooling system maintenance strategy may involve ordering multiple exchange components along with hundreds of consumable parts, possibly at staggered maintenance intervals.

A nosecone exchange is one service that changes out your entire cooling arrangement in one go, combining multiple maintenance strategies. It simplifies your cooling system maintenance, significantly reduces the labour required onsite, and shortens your shutdown durations.

A noscecone exchange also increases your equipment's availability, reduces planning and parts ordering requirements and eliminates part availability issues.

Is your nosecone exchange service available for an entire fleet?

Our nosecone exchange service can be used to maintain an entire fleet of mining trucks and dozers. We can work with you and your maintenance schedule to guarantee availability when required.
