The integrated engine oil & filter system combining the oil stabilizing
systems, Reserve and Centinel, with the Eliminator self cleaning oil filter
extends, with oil analysis, the oil change interval to 4000 hours.

The power train consists of two main drives. Diesel engines or electric
motors can be supplied. Each connected to a gearbox and 3 identical
main pumps which draw hydraulic oil from an unpressurized hydraulic
tank. Open circuit hydraulics provide maximum cooling and filtering
The four-circuit system features a load-limiting governor with oil
delivery summation to the working circuits and incorporates
pressure cut-off control. Hydropilot prioritizes hydraulic flow giving
smooth hydraulic response, simple hydraulic system layout, and a
reduced number of components. Filtration is at the oil intake to
pumps, valve blocks, heat exchangers and the oil tank.
The high capacity engine radiators are cooled by hydraulically driven fans for superior cooling efficiency and require little maintenance. The hydraulic system includes four large swing-out vertical air-to-oil hydraulic coolers with temperature-regulated hydraulically driven fans.
Undercarriage consists of one center carbody and two track frames,
each side attached by 80 high torque bolts.
Two hydraulically powered Lincoln single line automatic lubrication
systems are provided as standard, complete with time and volume
variable controls. Activity and malfunction events are linked to the ECS.
The central lube grease system is supplied from a refillable 300 liter / 80 gal. container. A second, identical system supplies open gear
lubricant to the swing ring teeth through a lube pinion. Replenishment
of the containers is through the service center.
The Electronic Control System (ECS) digital diagnostic system,
mounted in the operator’s console, provides a text display of realtime
and stored information about the operating systems of the
machine. Non-serious and critical faults are immediately
announced, and for major malfunctions the engines are also shut
down. The integrated digital storage provides full event history,
which can be downloaded with a laptop computer. The ability to
electronically record service events provides precise service
information to assist in reducing downtime.
The large welded steel cab is mounted with 18 viscous damping
pads and sound insulated.
It is equipped with automatic climate control and is pressurized.
The operator’s seat is fully adjustable, air suspended, electrically
heated and has a lap seat belt. Trainer’s seat included.
Low effort joystick controls are electric over hydraulic and foot
controls are for front shovel clam, crawler and swing brake.
Full instrumentation and Electronic Control System (ECS) are
provided. Space in the console is provided for an additional
monitor. AM/FM radio is included. The dual windshield wipers
have two-speed and intermittent operation (water reservoir 7 liters
1.8 gal.). Amenities include a wash basin with running water (water reservoir 50 liters 13 gal.), refrigerator, and storage cabinets.
Powered mirrors are adjustable from inside the cab.
