SR Hybrid Drive

Outstanding fuel efficiency – in some cases up to 45% less fuel consumption than comparably sized mechanical drive wheel loaders – is the result of our exclusive SR Hybrid Drive system.

Utilizing proven switched reluctance technology, the SR Hybrid Drive system allows power generation that is fully regenerative, resulting in very efficient wheel loader operation. During braking or retarding, electrical motors become generators and feed power back into the generator connected to the engine.  The SR Hybrid Drive system allows for 100% capture and utilization of all braking energy during the loading cycle. Major components of the system include power electronics, motor/generator, control system, and gear train.

Learn how the SR Hybrid Drive can lower your costs.

LINCS II network control system

The LINCS II network control system is designed to help operators meet the challenges of even the most demanding surface mining applications. The dash-mounted interactive touch screen displays:

  • Instant, real-time feedback, with a wealth of information to adjust performance according to conditions
  • Vital statistics, such as bucket height and angle, individual bucket payload, cumulative truck loads, elapsed time per loading cycle, total tons moved, available fuel, vehicle speed, coolant temp, etc.
  • An easy-to-interpret graphical format that can be easily configured to meet personal preferences

Learn how LINCS II can help you maximize your loader’s productivity.

PreVail remote health monitoring (RHM) system

The PreVail remote health monitoring (RHM) system helps reduce cost per ton/meter through life cycle management. We have a substantial and evolving knowledge base, developed from information gleaned from hundreds of machines worldwide. As a result, issues are detected and analyzed with greater speed and solutions are developed and applied with increasing efficiency.

Our performance benchmarks and best-in-class standards are constantly undergoing continuous improvements.
