Guidance of Choosing a Safe Excavator

Tags: used excavator tips used Komatsu excavator available used excavator2013-09-30

Before using an used excavator as a crane,a thorough risk assessment should be undertaken to determine whether alternative work processes could be used to avoid lifting operations or whether a different item of equipment would represent a safer choice.

The operator has a duty to conduct maintenance and inspection at the start of each working shift (for example, of chains,shackles, hooks and slings) to ensure they are suitable for the lift, clearly marked with a safe working load and in good working condition. A full and complete record of all maintenance and inspection undertaken must be kept and any defective machinery or lifting gear found should not be used under any circumstance.

The used excavator must always be operated within its capability and if in any doubt, the operator should consult with the operations and maintenance manual supplied by the Original Equipment Manufacturer (OEM).Excavators that are used for lifting are subject to a thorough examination and test at least every 12 months. Machines must also be fitted with an audio-visual safe load indicator and lift capacity at various radii should be clearly stated. Lifting eyes should be closed, not open and rated by the OEM.

When travelling, machine stability will be improved by reducing travel speeds,crowding the load into the machine as far as is safe/practicable and keeping the load low to the ground. When placing the load into position, engine revs should be lowered to tortoise mode and the machine's boom and dipper manipulated to move the load into position. At all times, the load must remain freely suspended.
