Excavators are one of the most versatile yet powerful construction and civil machines but can be overworked depending on the types of jobs they undertake. Therefore, inspecting your excavators for hire is an essential aspect ensuring not only your operators’ safety, but the safety of other parties involved. Making sure your excavator is reliable can also increase worksite productivity, allowing your project to be completed much quicker.
When you are inspecting an excavator of any size, there any many features of the machine that need to be thoroughly looked over to guarantee the machine is able to conduct your projects requirements. In this article, we will be explaining the 4 major aspects you need to inspect on an excavator:
Before you even start looking at the excavator for any cracks or broken equipment, you need to first check the machines operational history. The operational history will show you exactly how many hours the machine has been in operation for as well as basic facts about the excavator including the manufacture date and working condition. If you don’t know where to start your inspection the operational history is the best place as you are able to determine a baseline of facts before even looking at the excavator.
A slewing ring for an excavator is a rotational rolling element bearing that supports a heavy but slow turning load. If you notice that this slew ring is slight damaged this may need to be replaced. In order to check if it is damaged, turn the hydraulic excavator housing a quarter turn and this will allow you to notice any movement in the slew ring. You should also check for any loose connection points between the excavators stick and the bucket. If loose, this could mean it needs a repair.
If you see rust or cracking in the excavator’s construction, this could be a significant repair, especially if they appear in key connection points. If you notice rust, cracks, bends or dents, this could mean that the excavators overall structural integrity could be compromised and result in some costly repairs. If you notice dents on the undercarriage on the excavator, this could mean that the previous operator/s haven’t taken proper care of the machine.
If your excavator hire is accompanied but various attachments, make sure you inspect these just as thoroughly as the machine itself because if the machine is great, but the attachments are damaged, your projects efficiency will suffer. In terms of an excavator bucket, make sure you check between the bucket’s teeth for signs of scalloping and any shapes. This doesn’t necessarily mean you need a replacement bucket but your buckets cutting force will be hindered.
