COMMON MISCONCEPTIONS ABOUT HYDRAULIC FINAL DRIVES FOR EXCAVATORS
Hydraulic final drives are essential components in
excavator systems, and there are many myths and misconceptions about them. From
their maintenance to their cost, let’s debunk some of the most common hydraulic
final drive misconceptions.
Misconception 1: You can save money by choosing a
lower quality drive.
This couldn’t be further from the truth. The cost of
replacing a broken or low-quality drive is dramatically more than investing in
one that is designed for longevity. Quality drives are manufactured to last,
often with warranties that guarantee the life of the part. Low-quality drives
may be cheaper initially but will require more frequent repairs, which quickly
add up over time.
Misconception 2: Hydraulic final drives are
complicated and expensive to maintain.
On the contrary, hydraulic final drives are
relatively easy to maintain and don’t require much attention beyond regular
checks for leaks and general wear and tear. If any problems arise, they can
easily be fixed with minimal downtime or disruption to your operations.
Furthermore, when it comes time to repair or replace a drive there are plenty
of cost-effective options available on the market today.
Misconception 3: Hydraulic final drives have been
replaced by electric motors on excavators.
Not so fast! While electric motors may be an option
for certain tasks and applications, hydraulic final drives still remain one of
the most reliable solutions when it comes to powering excavators with large
loads and high torques—especially in difficult conditions like extreme
temperatures or dusty environments where an electric motor would fail quickly
due to overheating or dust buildup on its components.
As you can see from this overview, there is no need
to be intimidated by hydraulic final drives if you’re unfamiliar with
them—they’re actually quite simple and reliable components when properly
maintained! Investing in quality products that come with warranties is key; not
only will they last longer but they provide peace of mind knowing that you
won’t have any unexpected surprises down the road due to a faulty drive system.
