20m teledipper all fitted up and ready to go off to the jobsite - Boss Attachments have done a really great job of the counterweight manufacture, install to machine with valving etc
On the home straight now - telescope sections, winch, head pulley assembly, internal pipework and most of the smaller ancillary parts are fitted - just the hose trolley and cable head pulley to go, and then it can be run up, tested and sent off to its new home in the USA !!
This coming week will see the preparation and shipping of a good used 20m teledipper for a customer in Houston Texas USA
Base excavator will be a Caterpillar M322D with TAB front
Rear overhang additional counterweight will be fitted, due to low clearance between factory counterweight and outriggers
The completed machine will go straight to work on utility projects in Houston CBD
Thanks Mark and Graham for your order, we appreciate it
Watch this space for photos of loading etc
Work on the first of the six units has continued this last week
Most of the major components have been line bored, shot blasted and painted
Next stop assembly bay to start putting it all together !!
The last few days saw the telescope tubes totally finished, with stop blocks, end flanges etc - next step over to the line boring rig then brighten it up with some paint !!
This week saw further work on the first of the current batch of six units - the telescope tube seems fully welded on the robot sub arc track, also some of the sub assemblies welded up such as head pulley bracket etc
