In a pulling match who do you think would win L 2350 vs komatsu d575a-3?I can imagine what chain is needed to endure such a titanic pulling force from both machines.My experience is little with big machines but i think that the loader will outpull the dozer because of its 100 tons more weight and really giant tires.Yes the dozer has better traction but still the loader is 2/3 heavier.What do you think?
I work in a hard rock mine up here in Alaska. We run the 992s and 994s (along with bigger Hitachi hydraulic shovels). (I can vouge for the oil leaks on a 994...LOL) We've tried electric haul trucks but didn't have much luck with them. The abuse our equipment takes, due to the material (Granite) we're removing and the extream temperature changes through the seasons, it seems the less electrical components and electronics they have the better they last. Unfortunately, everything seems to be going electronic these days, but I'd still rather see a machanical drive train under anything with rubber tires. The only 994's we've had are the old 994s with the conversion to the D model joystick steering. I'd love to get the chance to run a brand new 994D or, if the rumors are true, a 995. I'm also quite fond of the 992G and hopefully will some day get some time in a 992K. She looks like a sweet ride. Tracksoup71
