Wheel changing device
ARTICLE
Wheel-changing on Cat 771 and 980 sized machines can be awkward and can involve significant manual handling, particularly during realignment. Fitters at Tarmac Western’s Gore Quarry came up with an effective solution. Their unit comprises a simple, robust frame with facilities for forklift engagement. An adjustable chain secures the wheel to the frame, and a roller arrangement allows the wheel to be turned with little effort via a short lever adjacent to the rollers.
