The cabin: the heart of the earth moving machines

Excavators, wheel loader, backhoe loaders, bulldozers, etc. lift very heavy materials during excavations and land handling in general.

These operations are carried out through the tools available to the operator such as the bucket which, thanks to the arm and the movement of the cylinder, carries out the excavations.

The operator activates the tools inside the cabin and it is made up of a series of elements and represents its control station.Used cabin Komatsu

Hydraulic cylinder: types and operating

Taop Parts offers hydraulic cylinders recovered from original machines, which have been tested and are ready to be installed.

Hydraulic cylinders are important components in earth-moving machines, such as excavators and wheel loaders, as they transform hydraulic force into linear movement, by facilitating the lifting and moving of heavy materials.

used spare parts komatsu volvo jcb catalog

The cylinder works thanks to the hydraulic system, consisting of pumps, pipes and hydraulic fluid.

A hydraulic cylinder is a tube closed at one end with a rod that moves inside. Inside the cylinder we find a piston. The piston separates the internal side of the cylinder from the external one. The fluid moves to both sides of the cylinder to extend or retract the rod.

Hydraulic cylinders can push, pull and lift different types of loads with different weights and sizes.

Tips on when to replace the components of heavy machines

Heavy machines such as wheel loader, backhoe loader, dump truck, bulldozers, etc., are essential in a construction, public works company, in a quarry or mine and they should be used correctly, it must be handled by skilled personnel and periodically checked.

It is very important to know the operation of each component, to carry out the appropriate tests.

THE BACKHOE LOADER: the masterpiece of heavy machines

The backhoe loader is an essential machine in earthmoving works. Due to their (relatively) small size and versatility, backhoes are very common in urban engineering projects and small construction projects (such as building a small house, repairing urban roads, etc.).

How to detect problems in the fluid system of wheel loaders, bulldozers, dumpers and excavators

Efficiency is a key issue when we talk about the operation of excavators, loaders, dumpers, bulldozers, etc.

The owners of heavy machines and their operator use fewer resources to complete certain jobs than others, certainly have a competitive advantage because they use the equipments more effectively.

Scheduled and preventive maintenance, which we always recommend to be carried out regularly, is the best ally to avoid breakdowns and damage to the machine.

In this article we will deal with a very important topic, namely how to detect any contamination in the fluids present in a heavy machine.

The operator’s safety of excavators, wheel loader, dump truck, bulldozer: fundamental labours standards and good practices

Excavators, wheel loaders, crawler excavators, bulldozers, backhoe loaders, etc. are special vehicles that perform heavy jobs with certain features. Operators must be properly trained and educated to the use of all the components of the machine, especially the engine, transmission, hydraulic system, electrical system, etc., and follow the safety standards defined by the legislation and by the company.

How to preserve the hydraulic system of earth moving machines

The hydraulic system of a machine determines how much weight it can load and at what speed it can operate. Therefore, it represents one of the fundamental elements for the correct functioning of a wheel loader or an excavator.

In the next video we can appreciate how, thanks to the hydraulic system, the excavator’s arm and the bucket move easily.

Operators must obtain the maximum possible performance of the machines to use them in the best way and avoid wastage of fuel.

This objective can only be achieved through the implementation of a failure maintenance and prevention strategy. The checking must be carried out daily and, in the specific case of the hydraulic system, must mainly be focused on the hydraulic oil level. The filters and oil must be changed in accordance with the manufacturer’s instructions.

Fuel consumption on wheel loaders, excavators, bulldozers, dumpers: technology and saving advice

Fuel is one of the basic elements of earth-moving machines. Saving fuel should be one of the main objectives of any operator, both for economic reasons but, above all, for environmental reasons.

The public works and the exploitation of quarries and mines, today, as ever, must be “sustainable”, which means that a balance is needed between the satisfaction of current needs and the well-being of future generations without compromising it.
