Re: interesting excavator

Sorry Guys, the link did not work, birthday , and brother and son both showed up yesterday, :confused:,

Ok , interesting excavator, and a clever Canadian miner, ( PS, a friend found this on a Candian Forum, ).


9.8 ton,122 hp Perkins Turbo Diesel,50gpm@3600psi , > sounds very good for prospecting, please note the rubber tyres, which allows the machine to be driven long distances, unlike a track mahine which is alot slower,

,
testing,

They say,

Here's a couple of less glamorous shots from Mission,B.C,It can stand in up to 5.5 ft of water,and pass between 7.5ft spaced trees...climb virtually anywhere eg.bouldered creek beds.Bought it from one of them little furrin' countries. Put it on a truck,a boat,a train,a truck...How 'bout diggin' test pits?Snipin' with a hose on the end?
G]

My line of thought is ,light weight 9.8 ton, nice machine for particular applications, ( long distance prospecting, )but for packed river river gravels and real mining, ( wet or dry, ) 20- 25 -30 ton tracked excavator is much more productive,very much more, and not that much more money,

Re: interesting excavator

You never said who makes it?

Is there a link to a website so we can check it out?

Re: interesting excavator

Here is the link to 2 of the oldest companies that build this equipment. There are several newer companies out there but I have no experience with them

Re: interesting excavator

Sorry Brian,

Thanks for the links,,

I agree a fun machine, but I would still suggest ,

"but for packed river river gravels and real mining, ( wet or dry, ) 20- 25 -30 ton tracked excavator is much more productive,very much more, and not that much more money ", up front,

dredger,

Re: interesting excavator

After thought here is ,these spider/wheeled machines have been around for ?? early 80's , lots of different makers models, they are always expensive, even second hand, usually made for specialized cleaning water ways, and landscaping,

My suggestion is if your working/ prospecting "deep" in the bush, and do not have a degree in computer repair you should have a machine that does not have a computer, straight hydraulics and or straight hydraulic with electric solenoids / electric switches,

Re: interesting excavator

That holds true for an ATV or a truck as well dredger.I'll stay clear of an ATV with a "system manager"from now on.Moisture can foul them up and they are an expensive item to replace.
A diagnostic tester will indicate what could be at fault but not a definite source.Ultimately,it could be the system manager(computer).

I've menioned this here before perhaps but it bears repeating.If you have a problem with computer controlled equipment,try this.Disconnect the battery...don't just shut down and expect it to reset.Wait a few minutes and reconnect.

My knowledge of computers is very limited but "cookies"is a term that comes to mind.It is a talent for remembering and storing that speeds operation in subsequent use of the computer.
One operator's habits may not be another's.If the same pattern of operation is not followed,the unit may lock up until cleared.

If anyone wishes to comment on that or correct me, feel free.For me,the rule in purchase of equipment will be to remember the KISS warning.
