The year 2020 at Codimatra
Arrival of the Hitachi EX1200-5C !
Codimatra was able to welcome a huge excavator for the spare part for quarries. The Hitachi Ex 1200-5C required the dismantling of its equipment and two exceptional convoys that you can find in video.
The Hitachi EX 1200-5C, an impressive excavator for large-scale work
This crawler excavator designed for mining work easily exceeds 100 tons and measures about 4.5 metres high and 4.6 metres wide, not to mention the huge monobloc boom, pendulum and bucket. This hydraulic excavator is designed to do huge jobs, when it was released in 2003, Hitachi Construction warned that its goal was to sell no more than 50 excavators per year worldwide. The EX 1200-5C follows the EX1200-5, a excavator that has proven its worth worldwide for stone crushing and rock crushing applications. But also for quarry, earthmoving and even demolition applications. It was also used for dredging harbours and rivers and sometimes for collecting and loading materials.
The engine of the Hitachi EX 1200-5C !
The models in this series feature a Hitachi S6R-Y2TAA-2 6-cylinder engine. It can reach a full power of 510.1 kW (power measured at 1650 rpm). The engine volume is 23.2 litres.
The dismantling of the Hitachi EX 1200-5C equipment for the first convoy
Since there are many regulations on the transport of machines, it is difficult to carry out a single convoy of the complete machine. This is why equipment such as the boom, the pendulum and also the cabin were dismantled by our specialists in 2 days. These first spare parts are then sent via a first convoy from the Vendée to Agen at the end of March. Also to save space, the platforms were also removed to facilitate the second convoy.
A second exceptional convoy for the largest part of the Hitachi EX 1200-5C
While waiting for the various authorizations and to prepare such a convoy, the second part arrived at the beginning of May accompanied by his vans for such an exceptional convoy. Indeed, such a transport of machines requires taking into account the dimensions and being well supported. Not to mention the loading to be carried out, which requires a lot of precision and patience. This second convoy supports the machine without its equipment and cabin. This includes the heavy chassis and its solid chain sets. Its high chassis which includes the engine part, counterweight, gearbox... all supported by a huge slewing ring. You can see on this video the unloading carried out by our teams:
