It may seem that replacing the alternator in an excavator without the appropriate knowledge and tools is not the easiest thing to do, but it is not a complicated process. If you have experience in repairing machines, replacing the alternator in an excavator should not be a problem.
The quality of the hydraulic oil has a significant impact on the operation and service life of the entire machine. Like any operating fluid, it wears out over time and is no longer suitable for further use. Wondering how to tell when hydraulic oil is used up? We dispel all doubts!
The way the excavator is operated has a great impact on the occurrence of failures, because seemingly trivial negligence can result in serious faults. That is why one of the patents on how to extend the life of the equipment is to reduce the bad habits of operators so as not to lead to premature wear of the machine.
Excavators are machines that are used not only in construction, but also in many other industry sectors. It turns out that problems with driving an excavator can arise for several reasons. A few of them are the failure of the final drive, hydraulic system, brake system failures. We explain how to fix it!
When the V-belt fails, e.g. it breaks or slips, the components it works with lose their efficiency or completely lose their functions. What are the most common problems with accessory belts in excavators and how to deal with them? We explain all doubts!
The prices of new excavators are so high that the vast majority of entrepreneurs cannot afford to buy new equipment. Therefore, a used excavator seems to be the ideal solution, but buying used equipment is also associated with a lot of risk.
Simmerings protect the bearings and other important elements working in the subassembly, so they are necessary for the proper operation of the travel final drive. That is why, to avoid its potential failure, you should know how simmerings are damaged.
We always encourage you to regularly change the gear oil in your excavators. It is necessary to lubricate the key components of the planetary gearbox. Unfortunately, under the influence of many factors, the oil is aging. Find out what this means for your gearbox!
Very important to ensure the reliability of the equipment is the daily maintenance of the excavator, i.e. the visual inspection of the most important elements performed by the operator before starting work. Learn how to do it right!
The weather outside during the winter months unfortunately takes its toll on construction machinery. Therefore, proper maintenance should be performed to keep them in good condition.
