Tag: excavators

Excavators are heavy construction equipment consisting of a boom, stick, bucket and cab on a rotating platform known as the “house”. The house sits atop an undercarriage with tracks or wheels. A cable-operated excavator uses winches and steel ropes to accomplish the movements. They are a natural progression from the steam shovels and often called power shovels. All movement and functions of a hydraulic excavator are accomplished through the use of hydraulic fluid, with hydraulic cylinders and hydraulic motors. Due to the linear actuation of hydraulic cylinders, their mode of operation is fundamentally different from cable-operated excavators.

Big and Tall Haul

Big and Tall Haul

Fluids are essential to machine health but are too often overlooked and under-prioritized. Also, many only learn basic or general fluid maintenance information, and this, plus some misinformation, often leads to less optimal machine productivity and longevity and can lead to catastrophic failure.

Other People’s Money

Other People’s Money

“Other people’s money” is an economic phrase that goes all the way back to Adam Smith’s The Wealth of Nations and has long since entered into common usage. According to The Farlex Financial Dictionary, other people’s money is an “informal term for the use or investment of borrowed funds. For example, a bank

Physical Gains from the Digital World

Physical Gains from the Digital World

The greatest productivity-enhancing features on new heavy equipment are digital—not mechanical. Machine size, attachment size, swing speed, travel speed…none of these changes have the potential to unlock productivity and efficiency in the same manner that digital technologies can. The technologies that have the greatest influence over heavy equipment production and

Digging With the Big Boys

Digging With the Big Boys

Excavators come in all sizes, from dining-room-table-sized mini excavators to the standard mid-sized machines. Yet even those pale in comparison to the largest excavators on the market. These behemoths of digging, these titans of exhumation are the types of tools that some construction industry members have dreamt of using since
