The mechanical engineering division of the Rädlinger company group recently presented its new excavator bucket. For the first time the company produced a shutter-action shovel in this dimension: With a height of almost three meters and a weight of 16 tons, a bucket loading of 6.5 cubic meters of material is possible. After many months of construction time and an outlay of over 1000 man-hours in the different corporate divisions, such as the Construction Department, the Mechanical Engineering Department or in the Welding Shop, the employees of Rädlinger presented the blade directly before delivery to the customer.
Zeppelin Baumaschinen GmbH instructed Rädlinger at the beginning of the year with the manufacture of the bucket. A large 170 ton Terex O&K excavator of the type RH 90-C, with a power of approximately 1,000 hp, which for example is employed in the extraction of limestone in quarries, acts as a support device for the shutter-action shovel. Calcareous marl is frequently released using explosives. In proximity to residential areas, however, due to the noise and the vibrations that explosives cause for the residents, alternative extraction processes have to be used. The employment of a large excavator with the high bucket produced by Rädlinger offers a solution here, which tears limestone from the quarry wall vibration-free and without detonations.
We at Rädlinger are pleased since this year another large contract has come in for a deep-digging bucket with these gigantic dimensions.
