Cooling System

The high capacity engine radiator is cooled by a mechanically driven fan for superior cooling efficiency and requires little maintenance. The hydraulic system includes large swing-out vertical air-to-oil hydraulic coolers with temperature-regulated hydraulically driven fans.

Automatic lubrication

Two hydraulically powered Lincoln single line automatic lubrication systems are provided as standard, complete with time and volume variable controls. The central lube grease system is supplied from a refillable 200 litre 53 gal. barrel. A second, identical system supplies open gear lubricant to the swing ring teeth through a lube pinion. Replenishment of the barrels is through the service arm.

Hydraulic System

The power train consists of one main drive. Diesel engine or electric motor can be supplied. One gearbox drives three identical main pumps which draw hydraulic oil from an unpressurized hydraulic tank. Open circuit hydraulics provide maximum cooling and filtering efficiency.

Main hydraulic pumps3 x 910 ltr/min3 x 240 U.S. gal
Relief valve setting310 bar4,495 psi
Swing flow rate800 ltr/min211 U.S. gal
High pressure in line filters one per pump located at the valve block 200 microns

Full flow return line filters 3 x 10 microns and leakage line filter 3 microns all with monitored 200 microns by pass filters. The three-circuit system features a load-limiting governor with oil delivery summation to the working circuits and incorporates pressure cut-off control. Hydropilot prioritises hydraulic flow giving smooth hydraulic response, simple system layout, and a reduced number of components.

Operator Cab

The large and comfortable cab is mounted on 15 viscous damping pads and sound insulated. The cab has automatic climate control and is pressurised. The operator’s seat is air suspended, electrically heated and has a lap seat belt and offers multiple adjustments. The trainer seat is also equipped with a seat belt. Low-effort hydraulic joystick controls are combined with foot controls for front shovel clam, crawler and swing brake. Full instrumentation, KOMTRAX Plus and an AM/FM radio with MP3 ready CD player is fitted. Two windshield wash wipers are synchronised and have two speed and intermittent operation. Two heated rear view mirrors are externally mounted. External metal sun blinds on the cab side windows and internal roller blinds on all windows are standard. There is a left hand sliding window. All windows are tinted parsol green. A walkway is mounted in front of cabin. (Subject to change without notice.)

Major cab engineering standards are:

  • ISO 3449 Falling Objects Protection Structure
  • ISO 6396 Noise in operator’s cab is 77 dB(A)
  • ISO 2631-1 Whole body vibration and shock below 0,5 m/s²

Vehicle Health Monitoring System

The KOMTRAX Plus monitoring system is designed for Komatsu mining equipment to provide real time and stored information about the operating status of the machine. Fault messages are immediately available to the operator via a digital display and in the event of critical malfunctions the engine is also shut down. The digital storage provides failure summary and analysis, which can be down loaded by laptop computer. This data will assist in predicting or reduction downtime.
