The integrated engine oil and filter system extends service intervals. This combines the oil stabilising systems, Reserve and Centinel, with the Eliminator self cleaning oil filter to extend, with oil analysis, the oil change interval to 4000 hours.
The high capacity engine radiator is cooled by a hydraulically driven fan for superior cooling efficiency and requiring little maintenance.

Hydraulic system
The power train consists of one main drive. Diesel engine or electric motor can be supplied. One gearbox drives four identical pumps which draw hydraulic oil from an unpressurized hydraulic tank. Open circuit hydraulics provide maximum cooling and filtering efficiency.

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 VHMS . The central lube grease system is supplied from a refillable 200 litre 53 gal. barrel. A second, identical system supplies open gear lubricant to the swing ring teeth through a lube pinion. Replenishment of the containers is through the Wiggins connections on the service arm (diesel version). Electric Version only fitted with Wiggins connections..

The large welded steel cab incorporating the ISO 3449 FOPS structure is vibration isolated with 18 viscous combination pads and sound insulated to below 70db(A). It is equipped with automatic climate control and is pressurized. The operators seat is air suspended, electrically heated and has a lap seat belt. There is a fold away trainer’s seat.

VHMS is designed for Komatsu mining equipment to provide real- time and stored information about the status of the operating machine. A touch-sensitive, flat-screen, color monitor gives a continuous display or can be activated to provide operator or service data. Non-serious and critical faults are automatically announced, while for major malfunctions the engine is also shut down. The integrated digital storage provides a full event history, which can be downloaded by laptop computer or by wireless link. The ability to provide real-time service information as messages, snapshot, or trend data automatically to mine control programs can improve mechanical utilization and reduce costs. The comprehensive diagnostic data will assist in predicting or reducing downtime.
