Cabin Walkthrough & Operation (9T Excavator)
Hello everyone and welcome back to our excavator series
and in today’s video we’re with our 9 Tonne
excavator and what we’re going to do is
go through a full cabin walk through
with you so you can familiarize yourself
with the machine and it’s functions so you
can get the most out of your hire. To
start with we need to get ourselves into
the machine. Secure the door correctly as
we’ve always done
and then enter the machine using three
points of contact.
Sit down on your machine and the first thing
we need to do is just pop our seat belt
on before we go any further.
And now let’s have a little look at the
controls so we’ll start with the left
hand joystick. The left-hand joystick
controls the arm of the machine,
pushing the joystick away will cause the
arm to move further away from you
pulling it closer
we’ll bring the arm closer to the
The left hand joystick also controls the
turning of the machine. By choosing nine
o’clock on the joystick handle we’ll
turn the machine left
and on the other side
choosing three o’clock
we’ll turn the machine right pivoting on
exactly the same spot.
The left hand joystick also has an
operating button so you can switch
between your bucket and your attachment.
The right hand joystick controls the
boom of the machine. By pushing the
joystick forward we’ll further the boom
away from the cabin
pulling back will bring the boom closer.
Also in addition to controlling the boom
it also controls the bucket and we
control the bucket by crowning it and
uncrowding it by choosing either nine
o’clock to crowd the bucket,
or three o’clock to uncrowd the bucket.
You’ll also notice on this right hand
joystick we’ve got a number of buttons.
We’ve got a horn,
Auto idle set,
We’ve got our attachment toggle switch
and also we’ve got our slew.
And that’s our joystick controls .Now in
front of that we’ve got our track
controls. These levers control the tracks
underneath the machine can be operated
by the hands or also by the feet if
you’re doing long-distance tracking
across a site.
To the right of that, we’ve got our
heads-up display that will show us all
the information about the machine that
we need. Including the warnings if
there are any issues with the machine.
Moving back from that and down the right
hand side of the seat
we’ve got our dozer blade operator.This
lever, if we push it down or further away
from us we’ll lower the dozer blade
pulling it back towards us we’ll higher it.
You’ll also nptice that there is a fast
track button on top of the dozer blade
that you can press when you’re tracking
across large building sites. Behind that
we’ve got a controls to our onboard
computer system which allows us to up
the revs of the machine choose specific and
settings for the machine
to allow us to get more out of our
operation. And then behind that we’ve got
our keypad. The keypad is quite essential
into actually operating the machine and
let’s go over all the buttons one by one.
First of all we’ve got our go-to button
this is to operate the Hydraulics and
also to confirm a lot of the commands on
the machine. Number two allows us to
switch between a bucket and an
Number three and number four are
auxiliary outputs. Number five is our
lifting warning light which we can turn
on and off depending on what we’re doing
with the machine.
Number six is our auto idle. Number seven
and eight number seven being our
Number eight being our beacon light.
Number nine is our windscreen wiper.
Number zero is our quick hitch button.
And the last two commands we’ve got a
back button which is also a whole auto
heat button for the machine. and finally
The Tick to go button. Following that
we’ve got our operators comforts which
is we’ve got
our radio and also our built-in heater.
And that’s all the built-in features
that you’ll find in one of our 9 Tonne
excavators here at WHC Hire. Now
hopefully this will help you familiarize
yourself with the machine so you can get
more out of your hire. If you’re stuck in
finding any of the features or you need
