What is the maximum angle that my machine can work at?
The maximum fore and aft grade in static condition on which any machine will maintain proper lubrication is 45º angle (100%). Consult Operation & Maintenance Manual for POWER TRAIN fluid level overfill requirements for operation on extreme slopes. Extreme slope operation is anytime the slope exceeds 25° (47%). The ENGINE should never be overfilled with oil. This may lead to rapid overheating. For extreme slope operation, engine oil should be maintained at the full mark. NOTE: Both ENGINE and POWER TRAIN fluid levels should be checked on level ground before working side hills and slopes.
Does my Excavator have certified ROPS (Roll over Protection Structure) cab fitted on it?
All Hydraulic Excavators brought into South Africa are only fitted with FOPS cabs, The boom serves to a great extend as a protection for the operator in the unlike event if a HEX would roll over.

What is important in a lot of operations are FOGS (Falling objects guarding system) which is available in three levels. The front screen protection guard, the roof top protection guard and both guards a full FOGS.
All cabs and guard systems can only be certified by Caterpillar if purchased from Caterpillar
