Radio Remote Control of Earthmoving Equipment 800682

Radio Control of earthmoving equipment was originally introduced to relieve bulldozer operators of the intense heat and dust which was underneath the basic oxygen furnaces at steel mills. With proper insulating and other related safeguards, the remotely controlled bulldozers can even operate under the furnaces while they are still in use.Other companies use remotely controlled loaders and/or bulldozers to excavate basements underneath existing buildings, or on treacherous terrain. Whatever the application, technology and safeguards have made this a very reliable and safe system for both the operator and the earthmoving equipment itself.
