DANGER:
THIS MANUAL PROVIDES INFORMATION AND DATA FOR THE MAINTENANCE AND
OPERATION OF THIS MACHINE. ALL ELECTRICAL EQUIPMENT MUST BE
SERVICED BY QUALIFIED INDIVIDUALS WHO HAVE BEEN PROPERLY TRAINED TO
WORK WITH HIGH VOLTAGE SYSTEMS, VARIABLE FREQUENCY AC DRIVES, AND/
OR WARD LEONARD LOOP DC DRIVES. FAILURE TO COMPLY COULD RESULT IN
PERSONAL INJURY OR DEATH.

DANGER:
DO NOT ATTEMPT MECHANICAL OR ELECTRICAL MAINTENANCE ON THIS MACHINE
WITHOUT A FULL UNDERSTANDING OF EACH COMPONENTS OPERATION AND
FUNCTION. COMPONENTS UTILIZING ELECTRICAL POWER, AIR PRESSURE,
HYDRAULIC PRESSURE AND COMPRESSION OR TENSION SPRINGS FOR
OPERATION MUST BE DEACTIVATED AND ISOLATED PRIOR TO DISASSEMBLY.
The FEEDER CABLE must contain a provision for a ground connection, especially whenever
2,300 volts or greater are used. At the substation, the power line must terminate (see paragraph on
ground circuits) to a suitable permanent ground. At the machine, the power line must securely
terminate through a bolted connection to the machine frame. This provides a constant ground for
the machine and its electrical equipment. Failure to provide this adequate ground endangers
employees and equipment.
THE NEED FOR A POWER LINE GROUNDING CIRCUIT ADEQUATE FOR THE MACHINE
CANNOT BE OVEREMPHASIZED. Without a good grounding system, high voltages exist between
the machine and the ground. The portable trail cable and power lines supplying electric energy to
the machine must have a ground wire, ample in capacity, running parallel to the main wires over
the entire distance from the transformer to the machine. A suitable grounding system must be
used at the transformer. Consult your local electrical supplier for details.

DANGER:
DUE TO THE INHERENT DANGERS IN THE OPERATION OF HIGH VOLTAGE
ELECTRICAL EQUIPMENT, A SAFE GROUNDING SYSTEM IS REQUIRED THAT
INCLUDES GROUND CONDUCTORS IN THE CABLE, A NEUTRAL GROUNDING
RESISTOR, AND RELATED RELAYS AND SWITCHGEAR. A GROUND CONTINUITY
CHECK SYSTEM IS ALSO RECOMMENDED.

Excessive or repeated skin contact with sealants or solvents may cause skin irritation. In case
of skin contact refer to the Material Safety Data Sheet (MSDS) for that material and the suggested
method of cleanup.
Inspect safety catches (keepers) on all hoist hooks. Do not take a chance, the load could slip
off of the hook if they are not functioning properly.
If a heavy item begins to fall, let it fall, dont try to catch it.
Keep your work area organized and clean. Wipe up oil or spills of any kind immediately. Keep
tools and parts off of the ground. Eliminate the possibility of a fall, slipping or tripping.
Floors, walkways and stairways must be clean and dry. After fluid draining operations be sure
all spillage is cleaned up.
Electrical cords and wet metal floors make a dangerous combination.
Regularly inspect for any loose bolts or locking devices and properly secure them.
Use extreme caution while working near any electrical lines or equipment whether it be high or
low voltage. Never attempt electrical repairs unless you are qualified.
Check limit switches for proper operation.
After servicing, be sure all tools, parts or servicing equipment are removed from the machine
and secured in an appropriate storage area.
Mechanical Brakes are designed for use as static holding brakes only. Use as a motion (dynamic)
brake in emergency situations only.
Use proper interior and exterior lighting.
Install and maintain proper grounding and ground fault protection systems.
Allow electrical inspection and maintenance to be performed only by a qualified electrician.

CRAWLERS
This machine is provided with a crawler system composed of 2 independently-driven crawler frame
assemblies, one on each side of the truck frame. Each crawler has its own belt driven by a sprockettype drive tumbler. Individual crawler links are heavy alloy steel castings connected by heat treated
pins. Innovative drive tumblers made from large diameter steel castings have lugs extending beyond
the tumbler rims. They are mounted on forged alloy steel shafts which turn on large anti-friction
bearings mounted within the crawler frame. The sprocket type lugs provide a large area of contact
against the crawler links, extending the life of both links and tumblers.
Lower rollers rotate on forged steel shafts mounted within the crawler side frames. Eight smaller
rollers and 1 large roller per frame are specially suited to withstand the periodic single point ground
reaction caused by uneven pit floors. Slide bars on top of each frame support the upper crawler
belt, reducing propel friction and drag. These side frames are stress relieved weldments comprised
of steel castings and cold weather steel plates. The crawler assemblies are bolted to the truck
frame with large diameter rods and torque nuts. Each crawler belt can be independently adjusted
for tension.

REVOLVING FRAME

The revolving frame is the main structural member


of the rotating deck. It is a welded, stress relieved
structure with integral lugs for mounting the Aframe, crowd machinery and boom. Provisions
are made for mounting deck extensions, operators
cab, ballast box and swing gearcases. Machined
pads on the deck locate the hoist drive motor and
machinery frames.
Refer to the following page for a view of the
revolving frame assembly with deck extensions
and ballast box.
The revolving frame is connected to the truck
frame by the center pintle.

CENTER PINTLE
The center pintle is a large diameter, hollow
cylindrical forging with a flange at the top. It is
threaded at the bottom with a lower locknut used
to hold it in place. A bronze coated steel core
spherical thrust washer between the lower locknut
and the bottom surface of the truck frame provides
a wear surface for pintle loads. The upper locknut
at the top of the center pintle is doweled and bolted
to the revolving frame to keep the center pintle
from rotating.
The hollow pintle provides passage for air and
grease lines and electrical cables from the
revolving frame to the lower works using a swivel
and collector ring assembly.

BOOM
The boom is a welded steel structure consisting of twin box girders integrally connected at the
boom point and in the lower section between the shipper shaft and boom feet. Impact resistant
steel is utilized, coupled with 100% penetration and UT quality welds on all main splice joints.
Design optimization has resulted in heavier outside skin plates, minimizing the need for internal
diaphragms. This reduction in weld related stress concentrations further enhances structural life.
Open manholes have been incorporated in the boom as a standard feature permitting periodic
structural inspection. Integral ladders within the upper boom sections permit internal access
without lowering the boom.

[graphic boom1346 in process]

Boom Assembly

The boom is supported by four pre-stressed suspension (structural) strands attached to equalizer
links on the A-frame. These inherent long life structural strands carry the working loads of the front
end equipment. A boom limit switch with soft setdown prevents boom jacking shock loads.

CONTROLS ON THE LEFT CONSOLE


LEFT JOYSTICK

omsL1346

The Left Joystick controls the crowd/horn/dipper trip and propel. It is the vertical handle mounted
on the left console of the operators seat. This joystick will spring return to neutral when released.
During normal operation, pushing the joystick forward will extend the dipper handle and dipper into
the bank. Pulling the joystick rearward will retract the dipper handle and dipper toward the machine.
The neutral position between the crowd and retract functions is defined by a detent that is easily
felt. The rate of motion is controlled by varying the distance the joystick is moved from the neutral
(center) position. Full forward or full rearward position provides maximum speed to the handle.
Moving the joystick to neutral will cause a braking action slowing the crowding or retracting handle.
Reversing the joystick will cause the motion to stop and if the joystick is held in this position, it will
change the direction of the motion.
With the propel transfer switch in the PROPEL position, pushing the joystick forward will cause the
left crawler to move forward. Pulling the joystick to the rear will cause the left crawler to move in the
reverse direction. The crowd/retract motion is locked out electrically when the machine is in the
propel mode.
Refer to JOYSTICK CONFIGURATION in this section of the manual to view the standard and
alternate configurations for the Right and Left Joysticks.
DIPPER TRIP
The dipper trip is part of the left joystick function in the standard configuration. Moving the joystick
to the right will activate the dipper trip mechanism which releases the dipper door latch. The dipper
trip is operational throughout the entire range of the crowd motion.
SIGNAL HORN
Moving the Left Joystick (in the standard configuration) to the left will activate the signal horn. The
signal horn is operational throughout the entire movement range of the crowd motion.

CONTROLS ON THE RIGHT CONSOLE

RIGHT JOYSTICK

omsR1346

The Right Joystick controls the hoist/swing and propel. It is a joystick mounted on the right console
of the operators seat. The joystick is used to control the hoist, swing and right crawler motions of
the machine. The position of the propel transfer switch will determine whether this joystick controls
the hoist motion or the crawler motion.
With the propel transfer switch in the dig position, and during normal operation, pushing the joystick
forward will lower the dipper. Pulling the joystick to the rear will hoist the dipper. The neutral
position between the hoist and lower functions is defined by a detent that is easily felt. The speed
of moving the dipper is controlled by varying the distance the joystick is moved from the neutral
(center) position. The full forward or full rearward position provides maximum speed to the dipper.
Moving the joystick to neutral will cause a braking action slowing the hoisting or lowering motion.
Reversing the joystick will cause the motion to stop and if the joystick is held in this position, it will
change the direction of the motion.
NOTE: When the right joystick is used in the hoist/lower mode it is a spring returned switch.
That is, it will return to the neutral position when it is released.
Moving the joystick to the left from the neutral position will cause the machine to swing to the left.
Moving the joystick to the right will cause the machine to rotate to the right. The swing motion is
operational throughout the entire movement range of hoisting or lowering the dipper. The swing
rate of acceleration is controlled by varying the distance the joystick is moved from the neutral
position. Moving the joystick to the neutral position will not stop the swing motion but will allow the
machine to coast. To stop or change direction the control joystick is moved past the neutral point
in the opposite direction. The rate of deceleration is controlled by varying the distance the joystick
is moved from the neutral position in the opposite direction.
Refer to JOYSTICK CONFIGURATION in this section of the manual to view the alternate
configurations for the Right and Left Joysticks.
With the propel transfer switch in the propel position, pushing the joystick forward will cause the
right crawler to move forward. Pulling the joystick to the rear will cause the right crawler to move in
the reverse direction. The hoist motion is locked out electrically when the machine is in the propel
mode.
NOTE: When the JOYSTICK is used in the swing mode the switch is a spring returned switch.
That is, it will return to the neutral position when it is released.

WINDSHIELD WIPERS
There are two electrically operated windshield wipers on the front window of the cab: one for the
lower portion of the window and one for the upper portion of the window.

Check the wiper blades to make sure they swing freely across the window without contacting the
window frame. Reposition the pantograph arm on the wiper motor shaft if necessary to prevent
contact with the window frame.
Frequently check the condition of the wiper blades and replace if damaged.
WINDSHIELD WASHER
An optional electric operated windshield washer unit supplies a cleaning agent to the windshield
through spray nozzles when activated. When operating in warm climates, water may be used as
the agent. In areas where freezing temperatures are encountered, a suitable commercial windshield
washer solvent with anti-freezing characteristics is recommended.

PRE-START CHECKS
Before starting, inspect the machine to ensure it is ready to be put into operation. Failure to make
such a routine check could result in unnecessary downtime. For example: an undetected oil leak
could result in a dry gearcase, eventually leading to excessive gear wear or destruction, seized
bearings or other mechanical problems. Broken strands in the hoist ropes, crowd rope, retract
rope or structural strands could, if undetected, result in serious injury or damage to the machine or
haulage unit. A few minutes spent inspecting the machine often results in considerable savings in
time and machine efficiency. Section 4 of this manual contains reproducible checklists to assist in
record keeping and ensure that adequate inspection standards are met.
WALKAROUND GROUND LEVEL INSPECTION
Check the following areas daily during a general walkaround inspection:
1.

Check the areas under and around the crawlers for signs of oil leaks. If single droplets are
noticed, leakage is minimal. Determine the point of leakage and make a note of it on the log
sheet. If pooling of oil is noticed, determine the source and take corrective action immediately.
Determine if loose hardware, a defective gasket, a combination of both, or a similar problem
is responsible. Tighten hardware or replace defective gaskets.

2.

Inspect the crawler belts for missing links or lock pins, excessive belt sag, cracked shoes or
other deterioration. Check the oil level in the propel planetary gearcase. Add oil as required.

3.

Check the swing rack and pinion guards for rocks, dirt and other debris that will interfere with
the operation of the machine. Inspect the swing rack gear and rollers for the proper lubricant
film.
DANGER:

HIGH VOLTAGE! THE MACHINE TRAIL CABLE CARRIES A LETHAL


VOLTAGE. Handle the cable in an approved manner with appropriate
rubber gloves and insulated hooks or tongs.

4.

Visually inspect the trail cable for cuts, abrasions and other damage.

5.

Visually inspect exterior of machinery house for damage or evidence of internal leakage.

6.

Inspect the dipper trip mechanism, rope, latch bar and associated hardware for damage,
adjustment and wear.

7.

Inspect the dipper door, hardware and bumpers for damage and excessive wear.

8.

Inspect fulcrum attachment points, take up cylinders and spacers, and dipper handle for

OPERATION
Efficient operation is essentially the result of understanding and applying the basic techniques
related to each machine motion, to achieve fast, smooth and safe load cycles. The interrelated
coordination of the hoist, swing and crowd motions results in efficient machine operation.
Each motion is described in the following paragraphs. The operator should thoroughly learn each
motion, its purpose and how this knowledge can be applied in becoming a better operator.
When learning to handle the operator controls, be sure that all personnel are clear of the machine
and that there is ample clearance with no danger spots around the machine, such as culverts,
ditches, embankments and that the machine is not too close to the digging face or overhanging
ledge and large rocks.
Use the Operator Display panel, in the operators cab, to assist in the operation of the machine.
The monitor allows a large number of messages to be sent to the operator from all portions of the
control system. These messages fit into four basic categories:
1.

Normal routine operational messages.

2.

Alarm only.

3.

Delayed shutdown messages.

4.

Immediate faults and shutdowns.

This monitor also allows the setting of certain operating parameters for the machine. Refer to
OPERATORS DISPLAY in this section of the manual for detailed descriptions of the Operator
Display monitor screens and how they relate to the proper operation of the machine.

PROPER SWING MOTION


Proper swing motion means smooth control and an efficient swing cycle. The swing motion is
begun toward the haulage unit when the dipper is filled and is clear of the bank.
DANGER:

EXTENSIVE DAMAGE TO THE DIPPER HANDLE AND DIPPER CAN


OCCUR IF THE MACHINE IS ROTATED BEFORE THE DIPPER
CLEARS THE BANK.

The swing motion begins with acceleration to an optimum point at which the excavator is brought to
a stop over the haulage unit. Maximum efficiency and minimum swing machinery wear are direct
results of mastering the swing motion.
NOTE: Improper swing motion results in erratic control and an inefficient swing cycle.

DANGER:

Dec 2008

THE DIPPER SHOULD NEVER BE POSITIONED OVER PERSONNEL,


TRAIL CABLES, RELATED ELECTRICAL EQUIPMENT OR OTHER
EQUIPMENT. When the dipper is loaded, accidental tripping of the
dipper door could result in death or serious injury to personnel and
extensive damage to equipment. Empty dippers may contain small
fragments of material that can be extremely dangerous when
dropped from a considerable height. On long moves open the door
on an empty dipper and lower the dipper to a point that permits
moving without striking the ground.

Time is required to accelerate any motion from zero to working speed and also to decelerate from
working speed back to zero. THE TIME EXPENDED FOR ACCELERATING AND DECELERATING
THE SWING REPRESENTS THE MAJOR PART OF THE ENTIRE DIG CYCLE. Therefore, the
swing arcs must be kept to a minimum to obtain maximum operating efficiency. As an example:
assuming that a 90 swing results in 100 percent of the maximum output, increasing the swing arc
to 180 reduces output to 70 percent, while decreasing the swing arc to 45 increased the output to
126 percent. Therefore, a swing arc of 90 or less should usually be used.
Haul units should be positioned so their center line is approximately under or not more than slightly
outside the swing path of the boom point. This substantially reduces the amount of dipper
maneuvering required of the operator when positioning the dipper for dumping. Positioning of the
haulage unit inside or outside the boom point makes it necessary to retract or crowd the dipper
handle and dipper, which breaks the operators natural rhythm.
A clean, level pit floor must be maintained. A good operator will always clean the floor before
moving into the bank. A clean and level floor grade is a requisite to safe and stable machine
operation and reduces damage to crawler links and related components.
DANGER:

SWEEPING SHOULD NEVER BE ATTEMPTED WITH THE


MACHINE. Sweeping consists of lowering the dipper to the ground
and using the swing motion of the machine to move the dipper from
side-to-side and sweep the pit floor. THE DIPPER, DIPPER
HANDLE AND BOOM STRUCTURES CAN BE DAMAGED BY
SWEEPING. A bulldozer or loader should be used to help the
machine operator maintain a clean pit floor in conjunction with the
shovel.

COUNTER-ROTATION TURNS
Although possible, a single sharp turn should be
avoided to minimize material build up on the
crawler belt roller path. This results in high
loading of the crawler belt and associated propel
components.
To make a sharp right turn, move the LEFT
joystick forward and pull the RIGHT joystick to
the rear.

To make a sharp left turn, move the RIGHT


joystick forward and pull the LEFT joystick to the
rear.

CAUTION:

When using the counter-rotation method for turning, have a helper


ensure that the trail cable does not get fouled and/or torn from the
machine.

NOTE: The ability of the machine to turn sharply is dependent on the surface on which the
machine is setting. A soft surface will cause the crawlers to dig-in and machine to bogdown.
CAUTION:

The propel brakes are released when either joystick is moved from
neutral. The propel brakes are set when both joysticks are returned
to neutral.

When moving the machine in a straight line, propel forward, which is in the direction of the take-up
axle to reduce strain on the crawler belts and propel mechanism. When not possible and propelling
to the rear, make sure the trail cable is clear of the machine and follow the signals given by the
helper. The machine should be rotated in a position to allow the operator to face the direction of
travel.
NOTE: Turning when propelling to the rear requires that the master control be positioned in a
direction opposite the actual direction in which the turn takes place.
The machine should be moved close to the bank in short and frequent moves to maintain digging
efficiency. Movement should occur between the loadings of haul units.

POSITIONING THE MACHINE


There are two basic methods for positioning the machine at the working face of the bank: the
back-up method and the drive-by method. Both methods are acceptable and effective.

BACK-UP METHOD
When using the back-up method, position the machine at the bank with the front of the machine
facing the digging face. The haul units are spotted on both sides of the machine. The bank can be
excavated until a 180 circular area of material has been removed from the bank. Once the material
is removed, a 90 or greater swing will be required in order to load the haul units, requiring the
machine to be moved.

To reposition the machine, propel to the rear, away from the bank, at an approximate 45 angle to
the bank. When the machine is centered in-line with the untouched edge of the previous excavation,
propel straight toward the bank and position the machine for further digging.
The back-up method will minimize the swing arc and reduce moving time, produce less bank toe
area clean up and simplify handling of the trail cable, cable standard and trail cable boat.

DRIVE-BY METHOD
NOTE: If mine conditions or equipment prevent the use of the following procedures, use the
Back-up Method instead.
Position the machine crawlers parallel to the bank with the outer set of crawler tracks directly in line
with the bank toe.
The haul units must approach the machine from the front, making a turn away from the machine as
the units front wheel approaches the outside crawler. Haul units then stop in a position to allow
backing toward the point of the bank for loading.
During the load cycle, swing arc is to one side only and should not exceed 90. The cycle time from
one full haul unit to the next empty unit should not exceed the cycle time between successive
dipper loads to each unit.

During the load cycle, the swing arc should not exceed 90. The time between finishing one truck
to the first digging cycle of the next should not exceed that of any cycle during a load.

START OF THE DIG CYCLE

The crowd motion forces the


dipper lip into the bank at the
start of the digging cycle. It is
the crowd thrust which
enables the dipper lip and
front opening to get into a
column of material of
sufficient cross section to fill
the dipper rapidly.

Force the Dipper Lip into the Bank

There is a direct relationship between crowd depth of bank penetration and the distance the dipper
must rise in the bank to fill the dipper. The deeper the bite the quicker the dipper will be filled,
providing the hoist force is sufficient to cut the column of material. Do not attempt to lift the entire
bank with each pass. As soon as the dipper is full, retract it from the bank and swing the machine
to fill the truck.
Crowd penetration should be rapid just at the arc of entry and rise as the dipper enters the bank.
This will permit as much digging as possible near the base of the bank. This is of particular
advantage when digging loose or blasted material. The greater the hoist force and crowd thrust,
the faster the dipper filling time of the dig cycle. The crowd thrust should be maintained to hold the
dipper in the bank while it is being hoisted. An added benefit of proper crowd thrust and hoist force
is that the opposing vertical resistance of the bank material tends to have a ramming effect in the
dipper front opening, minimizing voids and producing larger dipper loads.

It is important that the full


cutting surface of the dipper
contact the bank on each
pass. A full face cut combined
with deep bank penetration will
result in a full dipper for the
least amount of hoist. A partial
cut, even with deep bank
penetration, requires a greater
rise and tends to leave voids
in the dipper, requiring
additional passes to fill the
haulage unit.

295HR Electric Mining Shovel

Shallow bank penetration of the arc of


entry and rise is ineffective and
inefficient. A shaving cut dribbles
material into the dipper resulting in
voids and making additional passes
necessary while accelerating dipper lip
wear.
NOTE: A Deeper Bite = Quicker Fill Times

Digging should take place under the boom point for maximum shovel effectiveness. If necessary,
the machine should be moved closer to the bank face, rather than extending the dipper handle.
Reaching for material results in a partially filled dipper and excessive crowd and retract time. Use
caution not to damage the boom point sheaves when operating close to the high wall.

Overcrowding with the dipper


lowered can result in lifting the
boom. This jacking action can
result in damaged components.
Overcrowding the dipper in the
bank slows up the dipper loading
process, thereby reducing
machine efficiency.

Dig with the Dipper Beneath the Boom Point

ENGAGING THE BANK

To make maximum use of the hoist rope pull, the


dipper rise should be as close to vertical as possible.
The dipper should enter the bank approximately under
and behind the boom point. The actual cut should
start a few degrees behind an imaginary vertical line
from the front of the boom point sheaves. Proper
bank engagement results in maximum hoisting force
in line with the cut. When the dipper is too far forward,
bank penetration will be minimal and the hoist and
crowd forces will oppose each other rather than
working together.
Make Effective Use of the Hoist Effort

Dipper capacity rating is the struck measure cubic


yard capacity. When digging, a load greater or less
than the rated capacity may be obtained, depending
on the type of material. An efficient operation can be
measured by the number of dipper loads required to
load a haulage unit. When the dipper capacity is
efficiently sized to the truck capacity, not less than
three or more than five dippers full should be required
to load a unit. Other factors such as improper sizing
of haulage units to dipper, improper material
fragmentation, etc., also must be considered.
Hoist Force Opposes Crowd Force

In all types of digging the skilled operator must carefully


control the desired depth of cut and control the hoist
power requirements. Often, digging situations are
encountered which require hoist and crowd motions
to maneuver around oversize or lodged obstructions
in the bank, rather than attempting to lift the entire
bank.

DANGER:

MAINTAIN A DIGGING FACE WHICH AVOIDS ANY MAJOR SLIDES


WHICH COULD CAUSE AN ACCIDENT. Examine the digging face for
large boulders, large rocks, or frozen material which could slide and
cause an accident. Avoid overhanging material.

Do not repeatedly stall the dipper in the bank, nor


maintain a stall condition. The life expectancy of the
hoist machinery and hoist ropes is directly related to
the operators skill in avoiding stalling. Whenever stall
conditions are encountered, back off on the hoist
motion, retract the dipper, or do both. Avoid stall
conditions at all times.

DANGER:

DO NOT SUSPEND A LOADED OR EMPTY DIPPER IN THE AIR WITH


THE BRAKES SET FOR LONG TIME PERIODS. Lower the dipper to
the ground if the machine is to be idle or unattended for any length
of time. Failure to comply can result in personal injury or death of
anyone beneath the dipper.

For most efficient production, the dipper should be


loaded from the most remote point while waiting for a
truck. When the truck is positioned, excavating should
begin close to the haulage unit, progressively working
away from the unit.
This technique saves time by allowing smooth, short
dig cycles and eliminates excessive swing, crowd and
retract motions.

EXCAVATED MATERIAL
It is important that the operator not only know the controls but recognize other aspects of the mining
operation. Chief among these is the type of material to be excavated. It plays a great part in the
overall efficiency of the machine.
Materials can be roughly divided into four categories.
1.

EASY DIGGING - This category includes all loose, free-flowing materials, such as sand and
gravel deposits, stock pile materials such as finely crushed stone, ore fines, coal fines and
any other similar materials. The dipper will usually obtain a heaped load.

2.

MEDIUM DIGGING - This category includes only materials which can be excavated from
their natural beds without blasting and which break up in bulk with some voids. Such material
includes clay, dry earth, clay-gravel mixtures, gravel with some boulders, certain types of
ores and coal. The dipper will usually obtain a full load, with filling augmented by the materials
natural tendency to break apart when it encounters the dipper lip and teeth.

3.

HARD DIGGING - Included in this category are materials that require blasting, resulting in
good fragmentation, but leaving large chunks which develop voids. Limestone, gypsum shale,
cemented gravel, wet earth, clay and certain types of ore and overburden all fall within this
category. The dipper will average less than a full load because of the resistance of the
material against flow and voids due to blocky material

4.

VERY HARD DIGGING - This category includes all materials that require heavy blasting and
give irregular fragmentation. Taconite, granite, laminar shale, certain types of limestone and
conglomerate overburden fall into this category. The dipper will average considerably less
than a full load, because of the large chunks and interlocking action of the material which
block fill.

OPERATION CHECKS
During machine operation there are several things to consider relative to safe, efficient machine
operation.
1.

Check the motors for unusual noise, loss of power or failure to respond to controls.

2.

Check hoist, crowd, swing and propel machinery for unusual sounds and overheating of
bearings.

3.

Avoid slack hoist ropes which could allow the ropes to become crossed on the drum, or skip
a groove.

4.

Check the air gauge frequently and investigate immediately if there is a drop in air pressure.
Correct all air leaks.

5.

When propelling, check the engagement of the drive tumblers on the crawler belt links and
adjust the belts to correct any improper alignment.

6.

When operating auxiliary functions, such as steering, note any tendency of the controls to
jam or hang up. Check and correct any problems at the earliest opportunity.
