Excavator Operator Best Practice

Excavating equipment produced by major OEMs such as CAT, Hitachi, Komatsu and Liebherr is commonplace on mine sites, filling haul trucks with coal or overburden for dumping. The buckets on these excavators are generally one of two main types — face shovels or backhoe. Face shovels dig forwards with an apron section on the front that opens away to release the product. The backhoe is a one-piece bucket that digs back towards the machine. Mining buckets may be an OEM product or may be custom engineered by a non-OEM manufacturer to suit site-specific applications, whilst adhering to OEM equipment specifications.
