Operation - Component Upgrade 700570

Improved components usually improve the reliability and availability for work of earthmoving machines. This paper discusses a number of components that must be improved to make the entire industry more profitable-the customer gaining reduction of unit cost per yard of earth moved and the manufacturer obtaining a higher selling cost in exchange for greater availability. The components covered are: cooling systems, fabrications, tires, engines, pin joints, hydraulic pumps, hydraulic system cleaning, hydraulic fluid containers, ground engaging tools, transmissions, cabs and air conditioners, transfer gear trains, gages and sensors, and oil seals. All of these components must be improved and made more reliable to cut the downtime of the user.
