Despite following routine preventive maintenance procedures, mini excavators can still break down unexpectedly. You should watch for symptoms of common problems and take necessary measures to maximise the life of your machine.
Is your excavator heating up rapidly in a short period of time? Almost all equipment heats up with use but rapid overheating is sure to be a problem.
Here are a few things to check:
Many machine operators complain about low power. To troubleshoot low power, you can check a couple of things.
If you’re pushing the lever forward on the control panel and the machine is going backwards, you have a travel drive problem.
Drive motors can travel in both directions. You’ll see two high-pressure lines connected to the drive motor. Flip them to the opposite connections so the motor moves in the right direction. Once you install the drive motor, the mini-excavator will also roll in the right direction.
