Hi All,

I am not sure how popular the French range of excavators "Poclain" were in the US or if you even had them over there??
But here are some shots of an old Poclain TY45 that I recently discovered on a farm in Cornwall England, Quite a strange looking machine with its Triangular base with two small wheels at the front for steering.

These machines were first introduced in the year of my birth 1961!!
This particular model is an early 70's version.

I have recently completed an article about this machine for a British plant magazine that I do a bit for called Classic Plant & Machinery.

So guys any Poclain photos to share??

Poclain was imported here, I've been on a few jobs where I've seen them. The operators seemed to think they were pretty good machines.

Ah I see that's interesting would be nice to see if anyone has any photos from the States.

I once operated a Poclain 60 cutting V-ditches back in the 80's as you say it was a good machine.

Sadly they are no more after being gobbled up by the mighty Case organization in 1987.

Here is a picture of a TY45 that has been restored in the town of Crepy in France and is on permanant display near to where the old factory used to be.

I should add the ones I've seen were traditional track style units, not like the ones pictured here.

When I worked for a equipment dealer in south Florida back in the early seventies, they were the largest seller of Poclain excavators in the world for a while. For one thing, Poclain was one of the very few excavators that would dig coral rock without it being ripped or shot. This was on account of the high hydraulic pressures the machines had. The 120 crawler was our big seller. Deutz engines, large & powerful swing and tram motors, but the swing gear assembly was the machines weakest point. The boom and stick were weak as well if you steadily dug in the coral. We also had a few models out on rubber tires, a real rarity for the day.

We had the only factory trained mechanic between Cuba and New Jersey. Our engine man could rebuild Deutz engines in his sleep and probably did, he looked like the face in the old Hastings's filter ads.

Nice machines, but Poclain never did put an effective marketing or dealer organization together in North America and they went away. I've never seen one west of the big muddy.

Very interesting machine. I never saw anything like this before. Thanks for the pics.
When I first saw the ca b it reminded me of a Case and even a Lebher.
Don’t know why, but that thought just popped in to my mind.

OK continuing with the old Poclain photos, Here are some shots of a 220 backhoe that I saw for sale recently at a plant sales yard here in the West Country of England.

It was sold to a guy who already has a Poclain 90 and a 61.

Yes D4c, I think that yard is called Sedgemoor Plant run by a bit of a strange chap who contacted me after one of my letters was published in CP&M, he seemed to be a bit secretive and said if I published any of the photos in CP&M he didn't want to be named???

He had a load of old machines up there which were quite interesting to see.

So you live up near Hook then? I have been up to the old Case/CRMS yard many times in the past, as I was born & lived most of my life in Southampton and we used to whizz up there for spares.

Cheers

Nick

oh yes hes a bit strange i brought my d4c from him about three years ago that yard certainly is a sight to be seen,when we loaded my d4 it was onto a flatbed he lifted it with this old crane ,the hoist did not work he could only boom in/out i must say a bit frightening i soon backed under as soon as it was high enough

Heres some more pics of other old kit from my visit.

Steve Frazier
06-02-2007, 07:00 PM
Eyesore??? There used to be a similar yard near me where a major contractor in the area stored his retired equipment, it was located next to a hospital. I remember when I was a kid driving by and seeing all that equipment sitting there with weeds growing through it. The word eyesore never crossed my mind, I thought I had found heaven!!!

Great pics BigBlueBox!!

They look a little compressed though??

Dickie,

Poclain being a very innovative company always offered a vast range of different shaped booms and front end equipment, being French they always seemed to have different designs to everyone else??

I have got an info sheet showing all the different combinations somewhere...I will try to locate it:Banghead

yeah the pics are a bit compressed i had a little trouble uploading them. I finally got to run the machine yesterday! ( a whole 36 hours since delivery!!) It does sit up a bit high and the controls are a bit awkward but for such an old machine it preforms really well. No vices as of yet. I was mucking out the bottom of an old cow pond and ended up digging alot of rock. It seemed to dig really hard until i examined the spoil a little closer. once we got into the clay soil it dosen't hesitate. I still need practice with the controls though they just seem odd.

I was working on my massive fencing project today and had to take down some trees that were a threat to the newly constructed fence. Naturally i was jumping up and down at the opprutunity to play with our not so new hoe. It got a little slippery when i went across the creek but i filled in the ruts with some fill from the pond i've been mucking out. The machine ran well even though i sometimes forget that it weighs 60,000 lbs, i remembered today when i got in to soft stuff! At the end of the day got another section of fence put up and i even cleaned the tracks off really good.

Ah yes AJ,

That fantastic working model was built and owned by Peter Happel from Germany, I have had some contact with Peter by email and he has sent me some wonderful shots of his model, but I do not like to post them without his permission, I will ask him if it is ok!!

The model is a real credit to him isn't it!!

Hi there,

I found this posting about Peter and his amazing Poclain in 1:5 scale.
In 2006 I did an interview with him where he demonstrates the machine. The video is in german and can be found here (http://www.bauforum24.tv/index.php?site=playmovie&movieid=138).

In response to a question, there was no 1200 Poclain machine, the 1000 was the largest they ever got; and was the largest hydraulic excavator in the world for a short period until Germany-based manufacturers started entering the field (O&K, Demag etc).

I found this post somewhat by accident as I was looking for identification features of the smaller Poclain machines (75, 85 and 90) in a somewhat vain hope of getting a model number of this machine which I happened to find today working at a scrapyard in Newcastle up here in the north-east of England:

http://i2.photobucket.com/albums/y19/balacau/Misc%20stuff/misc/Poclainscraphandler.jpg

There is another yard located on the bank of the river Tyne which also has a Poclain 85 scraphandler, very similarly outfitted to the unidentified machine above; standard mount cab with the long dipper and 5-tine grab.

We had an old Hc300 poclain. It was (at the time) the largest excavator I had ever seen. Had 2 hammer plates welded at the factory on the stick and boom so they would not hammer the 2 together and blow the cylinders on top of the boom apart. So many pedals and options for pedals in the cab the first time I looked inside I wanted to pretend I knew what the heck I was looking at!. It turned out not to be a bad machine. Problem was someone had let all the hyd. leaks get too low and one of the main pumps cavitated and was never the same. We used to put ATF in the tank, cause It would hold viscosity longer than 10 weight thus giving us a little more time till the next complete change of oil. It was A Huge and Heavy machine for it's time....My friend sold it at Silverdome auction in Pontiac auction around 1995 for 10 grand...

This is an old Poclain i bought to use around my farm , i have since sold it . It was a 26 and a 1/2 ton machine , It was a 125B . In the photo , i was placing a boulder around a pond on the property .

07-12-2008, 04:27 PM
i used to run a 160,very short tracked ,and took a special blue hyd.oil so every time it had a leak if case did'nt have a drum it would sit for a week waiting to get oil from france,i remember it would run hot.so you would have to open the doors up it looked like it had wings,we would call it the (fying none) also had a switch to lock the tracks so it would not free roll when digging,which was fine untill something happend and you always had to hunt for the switch before you could move.

07-12-2008, 06:58 PM
It run a radial piston hydraulic pump and had an incredible oil pressure . The Deutz 6 cylinder engine ran fore and aft with the pump at the back . It had been sitting in the bush for years with a crook pump . I bought it for scrap price and found a pump for a $1000 . Checked the filters and drained all the components to make sure it was not full of metal and fired it up . It ran like a clock and i drove it straight up on the low loader and took it home .

I was honestly surprised to see a Poclain still at work on a regular jobsite, especially these days the older machines just get replaced very quickly by machines which are in turn replaced very soon afterwards! :beatsme I cannot remember ever seeing a wheeled Poclain excavator however...

Sure remember those machines.We had three RC-200's,one HC-300 and a 220.Have some pics and will try to post them.They were decent machines for their era,and could do the work.We used Shell Tellus 32 in the winter and 68 in the summer for hydraulic oil.I operated the 200's mainly on sewer/watermain work and some bulk excavation jobs.Good visibilty,reach and balance imo.The short tracks were not much of a problem if you took the time to level up the work area.Sometime had to kick a little dirt under the front of the tracks and walk up on it to help if the machine rocked.Installed an extra hydraulic oil cooler on one of the 200's that was equipped with a NPK H-14X breaker,plus many other "in house" modifications.This helped with keeping the machine at a much lower operating temperature especially in the summer months.Others included exhaust sytem and isolating the engine from the machine frame as they were solid mounted from the factory(steel on steel).

Nick I pick up a Classic Plant and Machinery book every month at the tractor store, usually the only reason I make the 25 mile trip there is that book. I have some older pictures of a TY45 that had a variable geometry boom with a hydraulic side shift like a modern compact. It was amazing for its day. I also enjoyed the MRS articles. I have a friend that introduced me to one of the founders of MRS scrapers and tractors. I also live about 95 miles from ther new site of the Ace of Spades in Akerman MS.

Hi guys,

im thinking of buy this old beast. i believe its a SC150.im not sure if it is the K model however. I dont know much about it at all really so i relying on some helpful people on this site to help out!!!

i have a farm so id love one of these. i dont want to spend a whole lot on the purchase price, but over time i dont mind throwing $1000 here and there, just as long as its not heaps. the owner says that the 'beast' runs like a dream and will dig to china. BUT..........the track motors play up, im assuming thats the final drives????? he said once the oil gets hot one drive goes slow and moving from place to place is difficult as it wants to go around in a circle.
i think it has an air cooler Deutz motor in it???, which have a great reputation.

now does anyone know what brand of track motors/final drives this thing would have in it?? ,so i can see if i can get them fixed!!!

Hi guys,

im thinking of buy this old beast. i believe its a SC150.im not sure if it is the K model however. I dont know much about it at all really so i relying on some helpful people on this site to help out!!!

i have a farm so id love one of these. i dont want to spend a whole lot on the purchase price, but over time i dont mind throwing $1000 here and there, just as long as its not heaps. the owner says that the 'beast' runs like a dream and will dig to china. BUT..........the track motors play up, im assuming thats the final drives????? he said once the oil gets hot one drive goes slow and moving from place to place is difficult as it wants to go around in a circle.
i think it has an air cooler Deutz motor in it???, which have a great reputation.

now does anyone know what brand of track motors/final drives this thing would have in it?? ,so i can see if i can get them fixed!!!

also any tips on removing them?? also where can i buy a manual or get some information on it!!!

]

i think i have the same machine you show in the pic, my is a mc100 , i have the same problem when the oil is geting hot, it goes to one side, i change the viscocity for the oil, but ones geting hot start doing again, and the wether ofcourse, my place is hot all the year, try to go to poclainHidraulics, they show the pumps and the motors .
Can you take a picture of the hidraulic pipes and hose and valves, that will help me alot to compare, the last owner chance almost all the pipes for hose for my machine.
Thanks

This machine is called a TY45. No idea what the "T" stands for The "Y" designates 3 point stability (rigid axles rear and single wheel front), the "45" designates approx horsepower. Was a pOCLAINfactory rep for 22 years. No one was ever able to explain the firt letter "T" or any of the others they used G,H, L, R.


Hi All,

I am not sure how popular the French range of excavators "Poclain" were in the US or if you even had them over there??
But here are some shots of an old Poclain TY45 that I recently discovered on a farm in Cornwall England, Quite a strange looking machine with its Triangular base with two small wheels at the front for steering.

These machines were first introduced in the year of my birth 1961!!
This particular model is an early 70's version.

I have recently completed an article about this machine for a British plant magazine that I do a bit for called Classic Plant & Machinery.

So guys any Poclain photos to share??

diggerdan1
03-14-2009, 09:36 AM
This is a TY45. Approx 45 HP. Case bought Poclain in 1977. They ruined the company because of lack of sincerity, knowledge, lack of marketing savvy, poor support. Typical Big American buy, as Case was owned by Tenneco. I know, I was with them for 22 years, starting with Poclain in 1969


Ah I see that's interesting would be nice to see if anyone has any photos from the States.

I once operated a Poclain 60 cutting V-ditches back in the 80's as you say it was a good machine.

Sadly they are no more after being gobbled up by the mighty Case organization in 1987.

Here is a picture of a TY45 that has been restored in the town of Crepy in France and is on permanant display near to where the old factory used to be.

SC150 No one has ever been able to explain the first letter "S" (I was factory rep for Poclain for 22 years), "C" designates crawler, 150 designates approx HP. If it has "K" (SCK) it would indicate a "Quarry Bottom", heavier more beefy. The Motors were made by Poclain Hyd. a Good supplier for used parts is rapid construction machinery in Virginia. Very reliable although they did leak a little. These were not built to be obsolete, but to last forever (the machine that is)

If this machine has a detroit in it (8V71) it would be a model HC300. They made two versions. HC300 and HC300L. Only diff was the bottom was longer on the L. Leakers but very powerful 118,000 lb machine. 2 5/8 cy bucket.


I am helping build a campground on an old gravelpit. At the back of the property is some old machinery. One piece is a big old Case excavator. It is tagged as Made by Poclain. It has a big old Jimmy diesel in it. Its a big machine.

They made three different versions of the MC100. The original had a VonRoll variable flow pump, they modified most of these in U.S. to a fixed displacment pump and and modulation valve system. I know, I modified a bunch of these. Ebay has a guy in Massachusettes that is selling books, I sold him all mine and they are in very good condition. I believe it is Johnson's books. They were basically built in the early 70's. Good source for parts is rapid construction equipment, fredricksberg virginia


is good to know some one have books of these special machine, i have a old copy of a spare parts book for the mc100 , is in very bad conditions, i hope you can help me with the hidraulic diagram (presure and return lines) i rely dont know what year is my machine, the only rference is a date in the small pump under the pl pump, 76

My father and uncles owned a HC-300 in the late 70's/early 80's.I remember a serviceman from Blackwood-Hodge working on the main hydraulic pump.The tool he used had three prongs on the end and he was changing some tapered seats in either the pump or main control valve-I can't exactly remember as it was in about 1981.That machine had a Deutz F12L-413 engine for power.It was one poweful machine,especially with those twin stick cylinders.It would have kept up to a Cat 245 of the same vintage imo.It would be interesting to see what machine today would touch it on a staight lift.It set eight foot diameter concrete pipe on one job-a Cat 235 from another company would budge one off the ground.Will post some RC-200 pics shortly.The T in TY probably is probably short for the French word "trois" meaning three.

can u help me out here!! im thinking of buying an old poclain. it tracks to one side but. so what i was thinking, was swapping the hydralic lines from the right hand side to the LHS to eliminate if it is the final drive or hyraulic motor on that side!!! what do you think??

03-14-2009, 09:27 PM
Was A very powerfull macine for it's time, as Dominion 410 said! I could not believe the things we could do with the HC300 back then. We set manhole sections at depths and distances from the machine I as a laborer at the time, did not think was possible. Our company replaced that machine with a 3500 Insley, then a 330 Cat, but it all comes back to the power of the Poclain for sure!!!

I have bought an old poclain GCK 120. I have fixed a bunch of leaks, a big crack accross the top of the boom and a problem with the swing system. I now have a problem with the drive system that may be related to the swing system problem I had earlier.

I have signed up to this forum to see if I could get the opinion of someone with more "poclain" experience.


The drive problem is there is very little power to climb slopes. It is as if the system is in high range. or that one side motor communicates with the other - they both want to go in the same direction when only one lever is operated. And when the swing is operated the drive does not work at all.

This poclain has a detroit 4-71 engine and there is a high range system that appears to apply to the swing as well.

I am looking for any info or perspectives I can get.

will drive.

yep, or probably is the viscocity of the oil, look for temp.

Hi Paul
I noticed from your thread that you have worked on Poclains in the past.I wondered if you could give me some advice.The pump on my old Leibherr excavator has packed up (can't get a replacement at a sensible price) and I have been told I could use a Poc 75 triple pump as a substitute?
My question is on the triple pump was one of the outputs set at servo pressure and if so which one? Any info greatly appreciated.

Great thread, back in the 80's we purchased an old 300 shovel, those pictures sure brought back memories. Thing was a good machine until the deutz blew up, stupid superintendent (former stupid mechanic) decided to replace it with a 4 cyl. Cat engine out of a gen set :Pointhead, didn't have enough RPM to properly turn the pump we kept turning up the pressures to get it to work right and this caused consent oil leaks, oh the old days.

The first machine I learned how to run was a 977K... then the RC 200 on my grandfather's development company. I was 13. You had to be an octopus to run it. Ours was different from what I've seen, it had two foot controls for the stick and bucket. I'm now 31... the Poclain has been gone for 2 years now, it had to go once we built the new house to help pay for it. I really regret cutting it up. Saved all the motors and pumps, but then Rapid Hydraulics backed out, so they got scrapped, he does have the engine. It would dig rock like no other machine I've run since. It was so slow... could eat lunch between buckets, but wow it would pull anything apart. We had 2 RC 200's 3 GC 120's and a 100. We "modernized" with a Case 170B... it was junk, then Pap went out of business. I still have Dad's 888 with 6600 hours on it, needs the punps rebuilt, but works on the farm. It has been replaced with a Kobelco 160. The Polcain literally had 15,000 hours it in... 4th engine, atleast 3 set of pumps. I would love to buy one if one is available!!!

We "modernized" with a Case 170B... it was junk, then Pap went out of business. I still have Dad's 888 with 6600 hours on it, needs the punps rebuilt, but works on the farm. It has been replaced with a Kobelco 160. The Polcain literally had 15,000 hours it in... 4th engine, atleast 3 set of pumps. I would love to buy one if one is available!!!

Good grief, did I take that wrong? 4 engines in 15000 hours is terrible.

4 engines in 15,000 hours... well may be it was 4 engines between the 2 RC 200's... I was pretty young back then. I know it was last rebuilt in 1995 by Stauffers in Harrisburg, then retired to farm duty in 1996. I know one was locked up by the genious operator (changed oil and forgot the drain plug, so that was his first and last day at work). My grandfather liked Deutz so well, we had 3 Deutz farm tractors, the one probably had nearly 10,000 on the factory engine.

No real use for the 120, really looking for the RC 200. If you have some pictures of the 120 and price, let me know... I talk to lots of people around here.

Casepoclain,your 200's were set-up with the same controls I used to operate.From the factory,they had a pedal attached to the bucket control lever.A second pedal was usually added to the stick control lever to make operating a little easier.I know where there is a RC-200 about 80 miles from here.The owner does'nt want to part with it yet,but would sure like to see it in the yard here someday.I have some pictures posted on here of one of the 200's my dad and uncles had.

I would like to find one too, I'm glad to hear there are still some around. If I had one it would probably be painted up nice and sit infront of the shop, and visit the steam show 2x a year. We live very near Brownsville, Pa with the National Steam and Gas Show.

So those pedals weren't unique to ours? The one I learned on had the stick in the right foot and the bucket in the left if memory serves, but the one that was junked first only had a stick pedal, which was a pain to switch machines. They looked like someone took a torch and chopped the lever off and attached the pedal. Couldn't tell if that was homemade.

Dominion 410
11-09-2009, 09:02 PM
I've seen them set-up like ours with the stick control on a pedal,and also with the swing on a pedal.Not to fussy about the foot swing,imo.The 200's were good machines and had good power for there size.They had three speed travel,back when most other's had single speed.There was a selector lever beside the operators seat that had three postions.If the selector was placed in the middle postion,the second hydraulic pump would help in the travel.The second pump helped when making a heavy lift,reducing the attachment speed but really boosting lift capacity.
One thing I really notice compared to today's equipment is in the undercarriage.The track frames were short but higher in design as compared to say a Cat 330.But when digging in tough going such as rock trench,the 200's seemed quite solid on there feet.The 330's seem to not have this going for them.
The Poclain HC-300 was by far the strongest backhoe that I have had dealings with in the fifty ton range. One of those would give a Cat 345 a go anyday in a straight lift.Not as fast digging wise,but put a 60" wide bucket on a 345 in hardpan,our 300 had a 60" bucket 2 7/8 cu.yd. and it would literally have sparks coming off the bucket teeth.It was plain tough,and with the wrong operator would pull itself apart.The 345's don't have enough weight built into them,at least in the fixed guage undercarriage.

Dominion 410
12-23-2009, 02:40 PM
That is a nice looking restoration:drinkup:drinkup.
Having spent my share of time on a RC-200,am well versed with the lever set-up.The two levers directly in front of the operator are for travel,one for each track.The lever bank from left to right,1-bucket,2-red lever is for swing,3-stick or arm,4-boom.The picture with the operator in it shows him holding the two levers for boom and stick with one hand.Swing was left hand,and bucket was on a foot pedal or lever.Lot's of operators used them like that.Some places used to set-up a second pedal on the stick lever.We had them like that.A little getting used to, but those machines could do a decent day's work.Easier to repair and maintain than todays machines by far.May be not as fast or fancy,but they will get the job done.A steady pace and lack of wasted movements wins every time.
As a modern day operator being productive,most would get onto them fairly easily.Might curse a little at first,but it's mind over machine.

Hi,Poclain Holland

Have some pictures of one of the 200's on this thread on page 8.My father and uncles had three RC-200's,an HC-300(with 12 cyl.Deutz engine)and a Poclain 220(V-10 Deutz engine).Got a lot of hard work out of those machines.They were always in tough digging,rock trench,hard pan,frozen ground in the winter month's.Back before we had bought the first hydraulic breaker in the region.An NPK H14X breaker was installed on one of the 200's in 1980.Equipment Domar from Montreal did the installation in our shop.It was quite the attachment to have working,and saved alot of unecessary labour and breakdowns.

With the inventory you described your Grandfather must be Charlie Metz? If so, he was a customer of mine during the 70's and early 80's. Linda was buying the stuff then. Yard was off I70. Small world. You got the 120's from Beckwith Machinery in the early 70's(the Cat dealer). Didn't he also have a big MF 88 front end loader?

Casepoclain
01-16-2010, 11:12 AM
You are correct! Those 120's came new? I know Beckwith was a Poclain dealer before Cat started making their own machines. Pap passed away in 2002 and Linda managed to not probate the will and she ended up with everything, cut most of it up to feed her coke habit. My Dad was Randy, he did a lot of the sewer and water lines and some of the strip mining. I didn't come until the last 70's, so I don't remember any of the wheel loaders, but I know they had a Hough 400, but anything is possible. Do you remember the Deutz tractors? I have one of them.

Hi folks i own a Poclain p60 tracked excavator and i need help getting a few parts eg i need a hydraulic slewing/swing motor or spares for one would you guys be able to help. This must be a common fault in these machines as my slewing motor is actually one of a P90 that has been modified to fit so getting one the same from a P90 would probably be the easiest option.D4C24A or Nick would you have any part numbers or manuals for this P90 motor and a contact number for the Sedgemoor Plant yard or similar breakers so that i can get my baby up and running again? Any help will be much appreciated. By the way im in Northern Ireland so if you know of any breakers over here it would be great.

You may be the perfect person to ask this question!

My friend has a Case/Poclain excavator. He says he knows it is a 1978 Case but no more than that. It has no markings on it. It looks exactly like a Case 220B, with the four access hatches on the top (plus the rear one), but it has a Deutz six cylinder with a turbocharger (seized!) instead of the V-10 Deutz that I see on all of the 220s that I have looked up on the internet. Is this the original configuration of the 220, before the V-10? Or is this something else?

Thanks for any info anyone can provide!

djskipp
09-29-2010, 03:16 PM
I was replying to DiggerDan, by the way, since he was a factory Poclain rep when this thing was built, but if anybody else can shed some light on this it would be greatly appreciated.

Also, does anyone know of a good source for a new/rebuilt turbo?

Very true,

I used to get parts for our Poclains from a fellow just north of Montreal. He was also an ex-Poclain serviceman , and really knew those machines. Would come to our yard in the spring and go over the Poclain machines we had. Hydraulic tune-ups,leaks ect...A few days of maintenance on those machines really paid off over the rest of the year.

Hi All,
I've just found this forum and joined up. Great to be here!

I'm based in Galway, Ireland. I have a few old machines lying around including a JCB 3CII.

As mentioned in another post, I'm currently looking for information on behalf of a friend who's got a 1971 Poclain FC30. His biggest problem relates to 'modifications' by former owners. For example, someone has added an oil cooler but seems to have made a mess of the 'plumbing' in the process. Now my friend is just trying to get the machine back to it's original configuration. In order to do this, he needs advice, docomentation or - preferably - some detailed photographs from an unmodified FC30 (or FY30). He already has some pages from Parts Manuals, but these don't seem to provide all the information necessary to restore the machine to its original state. I've downloaded some PDFs from earlier posts - thanks neilcop ;) - and these certainly provide some help. However, as he's not an expert in hydraulics, he may need further assistance with this one.

We would appreciate any help with this problem.

Thanks in advance for any help.

Hi Paul, our Poclain 90 is old but sturdy. We have recently redone all the oil seals in the digger arms. Now we have an electrical fault. We have taken parts off to try to fix.
It would be great to have a manual for the machine. Can you help us please?
Thanks MaxP90 Australia

Poclain, almost forgot about them. We never owned one here but did rent one on tracks with a grapple for loading big rocks for a couple months years ago. It was a tired and abused machine when we rented it from a local heavy equipment/junk dealer.

One little story about it: This dealer was famous for his "spray gun overhauls" if you know what I mean! Well he delivered the machine to us and said it was ready to work. Our operator climbed in and walked it down to the pit in the quarry to start sorting rocks. This was back in the day when the way you were taught to run a machine was to be told climb in and see what the levers do! Well a few hours later I get told to go down and see the operator as it seems to have an oil leak. When I get there he starts it up and sure enough oil is coming out of the engine breather pipe. Open hood and see it has a six cylinder Deutz diesel in there, first time I saw one. I notice that there is an alternator with no belt on the pulley and then see there is another pulley connected to this big fan inside the sheet metal covering of the engine. A little closer look and I notice that both pulleys have a nice fresh coat of red paint in the grooves! Not sure if the guy who painted this unit took the belt off to keep paint off it or just didn't notice there was none there at all. Boss said see if there is any fix to the engine. Well I dropped the pan and proceeded to remove the heads and cylinders, kind of like working on six air cooled motorcycle engines at the same time. As it turned out to no ones surprise there were some scuffed up pistons with the rings froze in the grooves. As I recall we only had to replace two pistons and do a quick hone of the cylinders and reassemble with new rings. OH! YES a new fan belt. Would hate to think what it would have taken to fix a an 855 Cummins if run that long and hard with basically no coolant.

The only other problem we had with this unit while it was here was finding hydraulic fittings for hoses when replacing them.

hey thanks guys. i can't believe that i have never found this board before now! here are some pics of the machine i got today.

That looks a lot like our P90 only probably a little brother. Maybe the manual would be similar? We are seeking manuals to fix ours, great ol'machine!

Here are some pics of our Poclain (OJI nick name) hard at work :)

We are still trying to get proper identification of its model number, apparently it is not a P90 lol.

Here's a couple more images you might enjoy, to show the machine in action. it took several hours to dig this big guy out. The deeper roots were in rocky soil and was holding on tight! We had to scrape the dirt off all way around before OJI could move the stump, it was so big and heavy!

We think it was a yellow Tallowood. It was a very tall tree, beautiful wood, unfortunately it had to go. Was leaning a bit toward road, fell straight across.

Looks like the Hydraulic Oil Cooler is leaking too bad to fix, trying to see if we can get it aluminium welded or a replacement of some sort.

The alternator at the auto electrician's, hopefully it can be fixed.

Case trying to help us identify what model we have. Poclain 90CLB?

She's a great ol' gal with much work to do yet :)

Good pictures of excavator on this thread. And the last post of images are great. It looks like the machine and the operator are doing good.

Yes, she loves to work!

The oil cooler was aluminium welded and placed back in, the alternator rebuilt and placed back in. The roadwork was almost complete, when the hydraulic plug started weeping quite badly and a lower boom hose failed. We are having the hose remade, and the plug was off the shelf. We were having a problem with the tracks intermittently not running- it came down to a loose earthwire in the electrical box!

She is a 1984, 90CKB, 22,000 tonne

We are still looking for maintainence and part manuals to help us keep her going.

Can anyone help?

I have just purchased a Poclain 61p railroader to use on a heritage railway unfortunately the brakes have locked on which I think may be due to a hydraulic interlock problem any ideas. I also need a copy of the operators and workshop manual as it needs some work done on it including a new fuse circuitboard. Can You help?

Jeff, My old hand book is showing the gc at 49,000 to 52,000, and the gy at 46,200 lbs. This is per the mechanic's hand book.
