This following provides a brief summary of the bedding conveyor installations procedures. For detailed instructions, download off of our bedding conveyor product page.
Conveyor Mounting Basics
-Felco’s bedding conveyor consists of five parts: the main frame, the nose section, the power unit assembly, the excavator-mounted hydraulics, and the hopper.
-The conveyor is usually mounted with the hopper on the idler end of the undercarriage so digging can take place over the sprocket end. This position is approved by all excavator manufacturers.
-The conveyor pins to mounting ears that are welded to the excavator’s car body.
-Because the conveyor is attached to the car body, special considerations are given to hydraulic supply, electrical supply, and 360 degree rotation of the upper house.
-The track drive hydraulic circuit powers the conveyor, and is controlled by the operator in the cab.
-Controls are installed in the cab.
