Before we talk any further on Komatsu Excavator, we first need to understand what an excavator is and what use it is of. An excavator is heavy equipment machine which is mainly used in construction and mining sites and is seen moving earth, layering the land, so on and so forth. The machine seems to have a neck like a giraffe and on top of it; you will find a rectangular bucket which is used to dig the mud using its sharp edged like fingers and after collecting the mud in the bucket, it moves to dump them. This is what an excavator is meant to do. This may sound easy but technically one need to learn a lot of things before they could start working in an excavator. With development in technology, many new changes come up on a regular basis and this is why the operator needs to upgrade his knowledge on operating the machine.
After knowing what an excavator is, let us share some thoughts of the brand that is known to produce one of the best excavators in the globe. We would be talking about Komatsu excavators and how they have managed to make their way to the top.
Komatsu has produced excavators of various models and each one has its own speciality. Not going into the specifics of each model, we would be speaking on the utility and efficiency of the machine and how Komatsu has inched higher making itself a brand in the world market.
Komatsu has developed compact excavators which can be used for many purposes. It’s mainly used for digging the earth and loading it in a truck. This sort of excavator has the potential to function in a confined area as it can swing easily and turn around with comfort. The operator is given a big cabin which is also known as “house of the operator”. The cabin is quite spacious which allows the operator to freely move himself inside the cabin and do his work with absolutely no difficulty.
The engine provided in the Komatsu excavator is diesel powered and it helps to drive the travel motor and the hydraulic pump. Hydraulic pressure is generated when the hydraulic oil which is inside the hydraulic pump sends out the oil to a cylinder that finally moves the excavator. The levers located inside the cabin allow the operator to do back breaking work with ease. Komatsu engineers have taken special care while designing the different parts of the machine. They wanted to ensure that the operators do not experience any difficulty in performing their duties and the most laborious work is done with extreme ease.
It is noteworthy that the work equipment of the excavator which is the long neck it has is quite similar to a human arm. It allows the machine to move itself just the way a human moves his arm to do his work. In this case, one can remove the bucket and attach some other equipment to perform a various other work. This makes the machine multifunctional and one doesn’t require any other machine to get the work done.
Komatsu is working hard to bring further changes in its machines by adding new technologies and making it user friendly.
