One is to dump the cart almost completely upside-down so that even dirt stuck to the bottom of the bucket falls out. The other is to pivot the cart skyward and shake it a few times. This agitation loosens clumps of soil that stick to each other and to the bucket.</p></div> <div class="og_rss_groups"></div><p><a href="http://hydraulicspneumatics.com/construction/movers-and-shakers-ride-rails" target="_blank">read more</a></p> http://hydraulicspneumatics.com/construction/movers-and-shakers-ride-rails#comments Construction Mon, 08 Sep 2014 13:38:00 +0000 28601 at http://hydraulicspneumatics.com Lever Changes Joystick Pattern in Off-Highway Machines http://hydraulicspneumatics.com/construction/lever-changes-joystick-pattern-highway-machines <div class="node-body article-body">When two of the big guys in the hydraulic excavator business — say, Caterpillar and John Deere — each design a different operating pattern for the two joysticks that control the pilot circuits on their machines, it’s highly likely that both patterns will appear in the field. </div> <div class="og_rss_groups"></div><p><a href="http://hydraulicspneumatics.com/construction/lever-changes-joystick-pattern-highway-machines" target="_blank">read more</a></p> http://hydraulicspneumatics.com/construction/lever-changes-joystick-pattern-highway-machines#comments Construction Mon, 08 Sep 2014 13:32:00 +0000 28591 at http://hydraulicspneumatics.com Mobile Concrete Pump Breaks 100-m Height Barrier http://hydraulicspneumatics.com/construction/mobile-concrete-pump-breaks-100-m-height-barrier <div class="field-deck"> One of the world’s largest concrete pumps soars to heights exceeding 100 m and is controlled, of course, by hydraulics. </div> <div class="node-body article-body">Nowhere in the world are cities currently growing faster than in China.
