SPECS FOR YOUR FILES: HOW TO SELECT HYDRAULIC BACKHOE EXCAVATORS

These guidelines to selecting an excavator also present certain rules developed to help in evaluating equipment specifications and in determining which machine best suits one's needs. The specifications presented here cover various aspects related to operating ranges, buckets, hydraulic systems, engines, general dimensions, undercarriage and stabilizers. The importance is emphasized of selecting the most economic work site, the reach and dumping range of the excavator, the dipper capacity (level or heaped), light, heavy or medium-duty dippers, dipper lip, bucket rollback, and bucket penetration, and the factors which determine bucket discharge.
