TITLE
CYLINDER FAILURE CAT 775 DUMPER
COUNTRY OF ORIGIN
United Kingdom
ACCIDENT / INCIDENT DETAILS
The operator of a Cat 775D dump truck reversed into the primary crusher reception hopper area to discharge the load of blasted rock into the crusher. As the operator started to raise the skip body, he noticed the truck lurch to one side.

He stopped the operation and checked to see if he had reversed onto a rock. While checking, he noticed that the off side hydraulic lift cylinder had come off its bottom mounting and was positioned between the inside rear wheel and chassis. The bottom cylinder mounting bearing had disintegrated and allowed the cylinder to come away. On inspection the bearing was found to be dry and the grease line blocked. All other similar bearings were checked and all showed signs of wear/crack, although no lubrication problems were found.
