New excavator guide
15 December 2011
Hydraulic Excavators: Quarrying and Mining Applications by Rob Sinclair is a new book that goes in-depth into how to select the right machine across a variety of extraction applications.
The book covers more than 75 excavator models , focusing on the larger machines that are often used as prime movers, and features in-excess of 400 photographs showing them at work in Europe, South Africa and North America.
The main focus of the book is on how to determine the right size and configuration of excavator for any given application. In addition to describing reasons for their selection and how the application is undertaken, the book details how performance can be calculated and provides numerous examples of actual production volumes achieved when extracting various types of material by the use of explosives and direct methods.
Furthermore, the increasing need for a wide array of minerals and the five-stages of quarrying and mining is provided in order to understand why the hydraulic excavator is such common place in these industries.
This book was written primarily for all who are involved with hydraulic excavators, quarrying and mining applications, but it is also accessible for those less experienced in the industry but keen to learn.
The book is available to buy from Amazon, among other retailers. Click here to go to the Amazon page.
