While excavator companies are manufacturing equipment with advanced technology, the choice in the market is becoming overcrowded. Consumers are becoming spoilt with choices, this has created confusion in purchasing the best for the business. To save yourself from making a wrong decision while purchasing excavators, here are the factors that you must consider when buying excavators for your construction business. Tips To Purchase Excavators in Construction Industry Types of Excavators One of the first considerations that one must take care of before purchasing an excavator is to know what type of excavator fits the need. There are various types of excavators, and each of them serves a range of purposes. The types of excavators from Sany India are mini, small, medium, large, and wheeled excavators. Each type of excavator is designed to serve different purposes, the size, and model are suited for various applications at a job site. The excavators work very well in excavation, grading, and site development. For these reasons, you must know the reason for which you are purchasing, which helps in the selection of the right excavator for higher adaptability. Engine Power The excavator selections depend highly on engine power. High-power engines provide high power with high digging forces that help in operating in tough conditions and delivering high productivity. The excavator company includes an engine that is responsible for providing the power needed to operate the hydraulic system that powers the excavator’s boom, arm, and bucket. The power generated by the engine directly affects the amount of time and resources which are invested to complete the job. Although power is crucial, it is also important to consider an engine that does not make much noise and ejects less smoke during operation. Condition at Work Site One must have a thorough study of the work site condition before purchasing an excavator. An excavator is useful for versatile operations, this includes digging, landscaping, site grading, demolition, digging trenches, and moving objects from one place to another. This means you must know what the operations condition will be and the operating environment. The terrain on which the excavator will be operating affects the machine’s stability, traction, and maneuverability. While, the climate or weather condition…
Excavator Safety Tips: Before, During and After Operation
Also known as diggers, excavators consist of a boom, dipper or stick, bucket, and cab on a rotating platform known as the upper structure or revolving frame. This upper structure sits on the top of an undercarriage with tracks or wheels. Excavators fall under the heavy equipment category and like any other heavy equipment, they are costly and hence, need to be safely operated and properly maintained so as to boost their life. If you are a contractor or a construction company owner or an excavator operator, then you might agree that adherence to the safety and maintenance tips not only keep the equipment in the good condition but give you peace of mind too that the equipment will not show signs of depreciation too early and can be used efficiently for years together with high uptime. Further, observance of safety tips can also increase job site safety. So what are these excavator safety tips? Well, here is a look at those excavator safety tips for before, during, and after the operation. Safety tips before the operation Read the operators’ manual to get familiar with the controls of the equipment. Read the warning labels and stickers as well as maintenance information, specification charts, and other important information posted around the machine. Visually inspect controls, engine compartment, undercarriage parts, hydraulic parts, and other parts and see that everything is in proper condition. Check that mirrors are clean and set properly. Check all the attachments of the excavator. See if everything is in its proper place. Check the track system as well before operating the excavator so that accidents can be prevented at the Jobsite. Walk around the equipment and check loose bolts, trash build-up, oil leaks, or damaged parts. Always ensure that all the safety equipment is working and clean. Make it a point to know and understand the width of the machine in order to maintain proper clearances from surrounding obstacles and obstructions. Switch on the key and check for any diagnostic codes or warning alerts that are active. Rectify the code before starting the operation. Test the equipment thoroughly before the operation to check its condition and effectiveness. Always use seat belts as they are provided for comfort and safety. Check with the concerned person if there are any underground lines or structures at the job site. Excavators should never be used too close to the edge of trench. Safety tips during operation Excavators have only one seat where the…
Factors affecting the durability of excavators
According to statistical data, growth in demand for Earthmoving and Mining Equipment was almost 23%, wherein the growth of hydraulic excavators was almost 24% of it. Since the demand for construction equipment is increasing, it is essential to know which of these should be invested in. Excavators are equipment that is put to rough use because of the work that they are used for. These machines are used for a large variety of tasks - from digging trenches and holes to lifting waste and excavating mines. Excavators are used to fulfill a variety of contractor and industrial needs which include mining, road construction, building construction and demolitions. While the performance of the excavators is important, what is more, important is the durability of the equipment. Little differences in the quality of these machines make a huge difference in deciding the machine’s durability. There are a number of things to check when judging the durability of the excavators. Excavators should be purchased carefully keeping in mind the hazards caused by them in case of mishandling of the machine. Following are a few factors for you to judge the durability of excavators at the time of purchase of these machines : 1.Boom and arm : The most important factor while checking the durability of the excavator is to look for the boom and arm of the product. These are the parts that take up most of the hard work of the machine. All the booms and arms are covered by steel plates. However, the difference comes in the thickness of the plates. The thicker these plates, the more durable your machine is. It is necessary that these parts are nicely covered and even better if you could get a warranty for these parts while purchasing an excavator. 2. Wear plate between arm and bucket: Usually there is a lateral wear plate between the arm and bucket. If the excavator isn’t well designed, the plate would have to be cut off and re-built again. A wear plate that is well-made wears off less and is durable for a longer period of time. 3. Upper and lower frame: Another factor to look out for when purchasing a durable excavator is the strength of the frames of the machine. Since this equipment has a rough usage, the frame is put under a lot of stress. Hence, it is important to look out for frames that are designed well and have greater…
