953D SH

Time is money. Optimizing the unloading time is what it is all about when it comes to machine selection. You can load many types of machines inside a shiphold but none would provide the perfect match for the application as the Track-Type Loader can thanks to the combination of tracks giving traction, loader arm for the reach and engine at back for the machine balance.

BENEFITS & FEATURES
Track-Type Loaders
Shiphold/Port Handling


Track-Type Loaders

Infinite Variable Speeds (hydrostatic transmission)
  • Smooth controls, more operator comfort
  • Increased operator productivity

Joysticks for Transmission and Work Tools
  • Easy to maneuver
  • Intuitive controls minimize training requirements

High Reach Work Tool
  • Loader arm allows cleaning of the walls of the hold
  • Increases versatility of the machine

Track-Type Undercarriage
  • Low ground pressure for better traction in some materials
  • Several shoe widths available or can be manufactured at order to meet customer requirements
  • Optional center hole shoes reduce track packing and track chain tightening which extends undercarriage life

Lifting Eyes
  • Front eyes welded on the Track Roller Frame (TRF)
  • Rear eyes mounted on the main frame
  • Wide spacing for good stability during lifting

Sound
  • Sound suppressed cab and air suspended seat reduce operator fatigue and increase concentration
  • The sound levels measured per ISO 6396 reach 74 dB(A) for 953D

Visibility
  • Large windows all around operator and clipped engine enclosure provide excellent view to the environment and the work tool
  • Day and night operations are lighted with 8 halogen lights: 4 lights facing frontward, 2 lights facing rearward and 2 facing sideways

Rear Engine and Cooling System Location
  • Improved machine balance
  • Engine less exposed to dust, increase engine life
  • Limit plugging of radiator core
  • Better visibility at front
  • Reduce O&O cost

Reversing Fan
  • The air flow can be either automatically or manually reversed. Maintains proper heat transfer by blowing material out of the radiator core.
  • The hinged radiator grill gives easy access to the cooling system of the machine
  • The hinged hydraulic fan makes the cleaning of the radiator easy and faster

Maintenance and Serviceability
  • Filters and other systems are accessible from the ground on each side of the machine
  • Cab can be tilted 90° with a crane or 30° with a hydraulic jack allowing job site repair
  • Makes the maintenance of the machine easier for engine or hydraulic components

Engine Air Precleaner
  • Debris is centrifugally removed from the airstream and delivers cleaner air to the engine filter
  • Air filter life is extended

Work Tools and Optional Equipment
Designed to meet your needs


Work Tools and Optional Equipment

Work Tool Options
  • Pin-on trim blade for all material
  • Pin-on trim blade for coal
  • Pin-on general purpose bucket
  • Pin-on multi purpose bucket

Additional Fuel Tank
Additional fuel tank increases the working time into the shiphold. The unloading process is simplified and the ship unloading duration is optimized. • The 953D can work 25 hours without refill

For additional information on the Track-Type Loader D series, please refer to the 953D, 963D and 973D specalogs.

Features
When the attachments are available a typical Track-Type Loader working in the shiphold/port handling application needs to be equipped with the following recommended features:
  • Four lifting eyes
  • Joystick for the transmission control
  • Front guard for hydraulic tank
  • Guards for lift and tilt cylinders
  • Guard for the track rollers
  • Heavy duty bumper
  • Reversing fan
  • Engine air precleaner
  • E-SALT tracks equipped with center hole shoes
  • Trim blade or bucket (with or without quick coupler)
  • Lights facing forward, backward and sideways
  • Windshield sealed
  • Hydraulic tilt cab system
