Structures

Structures

Robust Structures
Robust Structures - Your bottom line is improved by highly durable structures that achieve multiple life cycles and withstand the toughest loading conditions.
  • Full box-section rear frame resists torsional shock and twisting forces.
  • Castings in the engine end frame are used in high stress areas to spread high loads.
  • Cast axle pivot mounting areas better disperse stress loads for increased structural integrity.
  • 90 percent of the machine structure is robotically welded to provide highly consistent welds and increased strength.
Frames
Frames - Your key to maximum uptime and productivity is our purpose built front and rear frames.
  • Full box-section frames absorb torsional forces during dozing, maintaining alignment for hitch pins and drive line.
  • Spread hitch design features double tapered roller bearings and hardened pins that resist both horizontal and vertical loads.
  • Enhance strength in key pin areas through the use of one piece castings.
Push Beam and Push Arm Dozer Arrangement
Push Beam and Push Arm Dozer Arrangement - To ensure long life and reliability, solid one piece push beams are through-width, not merely attached to the side of the frame. In corner dozing, stresses are transferred and absorbed through a larger portion of the frame.

Benefits and Features

Structures

Structures

Robust Structures
Robust Structures - Your bottom line is improved by highly durable structures that achieve multiple life cycles and withstand the toughest loading conditions.
  • Full box-section rear frame resists torsional shock and twisting forces.
  • Castings in the engine end frame are used in high stress areas to spread high loads.
  • Cast axle pivot mounting areas better disperse stress loads for increased structural integrity.
  • 90 percent of the machine structure is robotically welded to provide highly consistent welds and increased strength.
Frames
Frames - Your key to maximum uptime and productivity is our purpose built front and rear frames.
  • Full box-section frames absorb torsional forces during dozing, maintaining alignment for hitch pins and drive line.
  • Spread hitch design features double tapered roller bearings and hardened pins that resist both horizontal and vertical loads.
  • Enhance strength in key pin areas through the use of one piece castings.
Push Beam and Push Arm Dozer Arrangement
Push Beam and Push Arm Dozer Arrangement - To ensure long life and reliability, solid one piece push beams are through-width, not merely attached to the side of the frame. In corner dozing, stresses are transferred and absorbed through a larger portion of the frame.
