Excavator

This is a “standard” excavator customized to work in a variety of maintenance and repair functions, on and around the railway with up to six different boom attachments. The original version of this machine had only basic hydraulic controls with fixed ramps that limited the interchangeability and performance of the boom attachments resulting in potential boom damage.

GS Global Resources (GSGR) provides total machine control through the master controller and operator interface display in the cab. The operator selects application specific software options to choose the appropriate attachment. With the click of a button the machine’s performance parameters are updated in order to perform the next critical function. The cabin is now free of hydraulic hoses and valves. Custom joystick handles are configured for optimal operator ergonomics while meeting demanding performance criteria.
