In the May 2012 issue of H&P. our Editor, Alan Hitchcox writes about a "rock star." In this case, the rock star is the I-Drive system that mates with Digga's (Australian equipment manufacturer) planetary gear box.
This system really is a rock star as it enables the excavator to which it is attached to achieve up to 300% greater productivity than currently available systems! It does this because it takes full advantage of the hydraulic flow capabilities of an excavator producing up to 1,000lpm to delliver a mazimum torque of 300,000 NMm and 240 kW. The actual title of this article in our May issue is Rock Star of Digging.
This article, like all of our printed content, is also available on the H&P website.
