Excavator Parts

1 Main Structure of Excavator

1.1 Bucket

The main working parts of excavators generally include standard buckets, reinforced buckets, rock buckets, etc.

1.2 Bucket Link

Connect the bucket and cylinder to increase the range of activities of the bucket.

1.3 Bucket Cylinder

Bucket hydraulic cylinder mainly controls the movement of the bucket.

1.4 Arm and 1.6 boom

The main function of arm and boom is to control the digging, loading and other actions of the bucket.

1.5 Arm Cylinder

Arm cylinder mainly controls the movement of arm.

1.7 Boom Cylinder

Boom cylinder mainly controls the movement of boom, boom cylinder generally needs to configure two excavators per excavator.

1.8 Seat

The seat is for the driver, which is convenient for the driver to operate the excavator

1.9 Cabin Assy

The driver's workplace, protects the driver, isolates noise, and maintains a comfortable temperature. Its structure is directly related to the safety, work efficiency, and health of the driver. The cab generally adopts a thin metal shell structure and is flexibly connected to the frame.

1.10 Side Door

The side door is designed to facilitate the observation and maintenance of the internal components of the excavator, generally including the pump door, engine door, etc.

1.11 Counter Weight

Counter weight is to balance the movement of the excavator's boom, arm, and bucket.


2 Excavator Undercarriage and Parts

2.1 Track Roller

The track rollers of the excavator are mainly connected to the excavator frame and the track link to support the weight of the excavator. Usually, an excavator has several track rollers.

2.2 Tensioner Assembly

The tensioning assembly of the excavator is mainly to make a certain pre-tightening force between the track link and the drive sprocket, and between the track link and the front idler to prevent the link from falling off. This force is achieved by springs on the tensioner assembly.

2.3 Carrier Roller

The carrier roller is used for support the upper part of track link, preventing the track link from sagging too much and affecting the movement of the excavator.

2.4 Front Idler

The function of front idler is to guide the track link.

2.5 Track link Assy

The function of track link assy is to connect the track shoes, and at the same time receive the power transmitted by the sprocket

2.6 Link Protection

The function of link Protection is to prevent the track link from falling off

2.7  Track Shoe Assy

The function of this part is to provide support for the excavator and increase the contact area with the ground

2.8 Track Shoe

This part is the basic unit that makes up track shoe assy

2.9 Sprocket

Sprocket is the drive part, connecting the travel motor and the track link, and driving the track link to move


3 Excavator Hydraulic Parts

3.1 Hydraulic Cylinder

Hydraulic cylinder is an actuator in the hydraulic system, which converts hydraulic energy into the reciprocating motion of the hydraulic piston to drive the reciprocating motion of the boom, arm, and bucket.

3.2 Swing Motor Assy

Swing motor assy is an actuator in the hydraulic system, which converts hydraulic energy into reciprocating rotational motion. Through the cooperation of the swing Bearing, it drives the upper part of the excavator to do reciprocating swing motion.

3.3 Main Control Valve

Main control valve is a control components in the hydraulic system, which reasonably distributes the hydraulic energy to the various actuators, so that the actuators cooperate with each other to complete the predetermined excavation action.

3.4 Hydraulic Pump

Hydraulic pump is a power components in the hydraulic system, which converts the mechanical energy of the excavator engine into hydraulic energy. Excavators generally use piston hydraulic pump.

3.5 Travel Motor Assy

Travel motor assy belongs to the actuator in the hydraulic system, which converts hydraulic energy into mechanical energy (reciprocating rotational motion), and then drives the track assy, so that the excavator has the ability to travel.

3.6 Foot Pilot Valve

Foot pilot valve belong to the control components in the hydraulic system. Through the manual control of the Foot Pilot Valve by the driver, the Pilot Valve controls the main control valve with a small hydraulic flow and pressure to control the large flow and high pressure.

3.7 Joystick Pilot Valve

Joystick pilot valve works similarly to Foot Pilot Valve.


4 Excavator Engine Parts

4.1 Engine Repair Kit

This kit including full or partial seal when you want to repair your engine.

4.2 Engine Cam Shaft

Engine cam shaft drives the rhythmic movement of the valve, controlling the engine to inhale and exhaust at the right time.

4.3 Engine Rebuild Kit

Engine rebuild kit including piston ,liner, pin, piston rings, snap rings, bushing. generally speaking those parts should be changed if you want to repair an engine.

4.4 Engine Nozzle

The engine nozzle controls the amount and time of diesel injection, and these parameters are controlled by the engine controller unit.

4.5 Cylinder Head

The cylinder head is installed on the top of the cylinder block, which seals the cylinder from the top and constitutes the combustion chamber. The cylinder head is also equipped with intake and exhaust valve seats, valve guide holes for installing intake and exhaust valves, as well as intake and exhaust passages, etc.

4.6 Cylinder Block

The main body of the engine, which integrates each cylinder and crankcase, is the supporting skeleton for installing pistons, crankshafts, and other parts and accessories.

4.7 Crank Shaft

The crankshaft is the main component of the engine, which converts the reciprocating motion transmitted by the pistons into rotational motion.

4.8 Engine Fuel Pump

The fuel pump delivers high pressure fuel to the fuel manifold to ensure a continuous supply of fuel to the injectors,So that the fuel can be injected as required.

4.9 Engine Controller

The function of the valve is to input air into the engine and discharge the exhaust gas after combustion. From the structure of the engine, it is divided into intake valve and exhaust valve. The function of the intake valve is to suck fresh air into the engine and mix it with the fuel; the function of the exhaust valve is to discharge the burned exhaust gas and dissipate heat.


5 Excavator Electric Parts

5.1 Hydraulic Control Unit

Read the signals of the relevant sensors and output control signals to the hydraulic system to ensure the stability and smoothness of the hydraulic system of the excavator
