TRACKED EXCAVATORS : MAIN FEATURES AND SELECTION CRITERIA.
A tracked excavator is a type of excavation equipment fitted with a special crawler chassis.
When talking about tracked excavators, one deals with a large variety of models and modifications of excavation equipment, whose shared construction feature is that all such machines are mounted on a special crawler chassis. The rest of the features of the equipment in this group can vary significantly by type of main working body (e.g., a bucket in the form of a front shovel or a backhoe, a bucket grab, a hydraulic hammer), additional attachments, weight and dimensions. At the same time, the greater is the mass of a specific model of excavation equipment, the more likely it is to be equipped with the crawler chassis.
It should be noted that the tracked excavators have a number of advantages over their rubber-tyred counterparts. First and foremost, it is high off-road performance, which is extremely important for the machines, which often need to operate in difficult road conditions. There are, of course, weaknesses as well - tracked machinery do less well than wheeled in terms of speed, and, moreover, for their transportation on the public roads network one should use tractor units with low loaders because the caterpillars can seriously damage the pavement.
