Cool Images Of Excavator Crawling

Excavators come in a wide variety of sizes. The smaller ones are called mini or compact excavators. Caterpillar’s smallest mini-excavator weighs 3,549 pounds (1,610 kg) and has 19 hp; their largest model weighs 187,360 pounds (84,990 kg) and has 513 hp. The largest excavator available is the O&K(Orenstein & Koppel) RH400, it weighs in excess of 2,160,510 pounds (979,990 kg), has 4500 hp and has a bucket size of about 52.0 m³.
Engines in excavators drive hydraulic pumps; there are usually 3 pumps: the two main pumps are for supplying oil at high pressure (up to 5000 psi) for the rams, swing motor, track motors, and accessories, and the third is a lower pressure (700 psi) pump for Pilot Control, this circuit used for the control of the spool valves, this allows for a reduced effort required when operating the controls.
The two main sections of an excavator are the undercarriage and the house. The undercarriage includes the blade (if fitted), tracks, track frame, and final drives, which have a hydraulic motor and gearing providing the drive to the individual tracks, and the house includes the operator cab, counterweight, engine, fuel and hydraulic oil tanks. The house attaches to the undercarriage by way of a center pin, allowing the machine to slew 360° unhindered.
