Macorp Launches CAT D2 Series Hydraulic Excavators

Machinery Corporation of Guyana Limited (Macorp) the only authorised dealer for Caterpillar in Guyana and Caterpillar Inc. are pleased to announce the introduction of the New D2 series hydraulic excavators to Guyana.

Improvements were made with customers’ needs and challenges in mind.

Today’s operations require dependable machines that can produce more with less. This is the essence behind the new D2 series. They are exceptionally reliable and highly productive machines built to lower operating costs through reduced fuel consumption and simplified routine maintenance.

Some of the features and benefits of these excavators includes a mechanically controlled engine that handles less than standard fuel in a better way and lowers fuel consumption, a powerful hydraulic system, a developed operator station, the largest bucket in its class and a robust design which is built to provide years of reliable service.

The field-proven C7.1 engine is designed for ease of service and can work efficiently at altitudes up to 4,000 meters (13,120 feet). Compared to its predecessor, the new engine uses approximately 3 to 5 percent less fuel, depending on work mode. An automatic engine-speed control lowers engine rpm during no-load or light-load conditions to minimize fuel consumption.

Hydraulics, structures, operator environment

The implement hydraulic system on the D2 series provides high hydraulic horsepower for digging and lifting, as well as for using heavy-duty, hydraulically powered work tools. Available couplers allow the operator to quickly change work tools and move from task to task for optimum machine utilization.

The pilot-type hydraulic system provides low-effort operation and precise control and maximizes efficiency. Boom and stick regeneration systems save energy during boom-down and stick-in operations, reducing cycle times and adding to overall fuel efficiency.

The ergonomically designed operator station is both quiet and comfortable, and it features a full-color LCD (Liquid Crystal Display) monitor with a choice of 28 languages. The standard suspension seat is adjustable to accommodate a wide range of operators and to enhance operator comfort and efficiency.

Large windows ensure all-around visibility and promote job-site safety. Viscous rubber cab mounts dampen both vibration and sound transmitted to the operator station, to further enhance operator comfort and productivity. New for the Series 2 is a large metal roof hatch that can be opened for added visibility and air circulation.

Work tools, serviceability

The versatile 320D/D L Series 2 can use a wide range of buckets, either pin-on or coupler-type, along with a selection of ground-engaging tools, to fit the machine to its digging environment for optimum performance and durability. Buckets feature precise geometry for easy loading, which speeds digging cycles, increases production, and conserves fuel. The selection of Series 2 work tools includes grapples, shears, hydraulic hammers, multi-processors, pulverizers, vibratory-plate compactors, rippers and rip-and-load packages.

The 320D Series 2 features ground-level access to most routine service points, including the pumps, pilot filter and fuel filters, which are conveniently located behind a service door on the right side. The left, rear service door allows easy access to the radiator, oil cooler, air-to-air aftercooler, and AC condenser.

A reserve tank and drain valve attached to the radiator simplify service, and a central grease block on the boom allows easily lubricating hard-to-reach locations on the front linkage. The Series 2 also is equipped with S•O•S™ (Scheduled Oil Sampling) ports that ensure quality samples from circulating fluid in the engine oil, hydraulic and cooling systems. Convenient hydraulic test ports allow safe, accurate checks of system pressures.

Macorp is confident that these new machines will meet and exceed customers’ expectations for superior performance, lower owning and operating cost and its durability. These excavators were manufactured with the voice of our customers echoing in the background and since its worldwide introduction last September, success stories are being told.
