Mr Lorimar is on a 20 hectare subdivision site ready to test the Kobelco 27 tonne excavator under the supervision of site Forman Ranga Maihi. “I was given the control of the Kobelco for what I thought would be a short test run.
About an hour later I was still enjoying the ride,” Dave says.
Dave Lorimar comes to the conclusion that Kobelco have made a good effort to keep maintenance to a minimum. The on board computer is quick to signal a problem and regularly replaced items, such as filters are easily accessible.
Dave adds, “I noticed that the anti-drop valves are installed on the dipper arm rams to allow for safe lowering should a hydraulic hose decide to give out. The radiator, oil cooler and intercooler are well set up and can be independently removed.”
