Shipping and Assembly

Machine breaks down into eleven modules for ease of shipping.

Maintenance and Service Access

The right and left side modules provide excellent service access as well as storage and working space.

Right Module

Right module includes walk-around, lighted access to the engine, engine cooling system, batteries, and hydraulic pumps.

Left Module

The left module includes a cab riser which allows stand-up access to hydraulic pilot lines and to the main junction box for electrical and electronic components.

Stability

Superior stability is achieved by crating a lower center of gravity and is a result of the modular design.

Power Train

The single engine of the 5230 FS provides an edge in operating costs and fuel efficiency.

Electronic Control System

The Caterpillar electronic control system provides superior integration of the engine and other machine systems.

Electronic Unit Injector

The 3516 Electronic Unit Injection (EUI) engine has many outstanding features.

Automatic Engine Speed Control (AESC)

Automatic Engine Speed Control (AESC) reduces fuel consumption and noise by reducing the engine speed from 1750 to 1350 rpm if the hydraulic controls are not actuated for four seconds.

Engine Cooling System

Engine cooling system reduces fuel consumption using a variable-speed fan.

Cold Weather Starting

Cold weather starting can be improved with Elelctronic Unit Injector's cold weather starting mode.

Displacement

High displacement, low rpm rating and conservative hp ratings mean longer service hours with less downtime for maintenance and repair.

Piston Design

Two-piece piston design with aluminum skirt and steel crown pivot at the wrist pin provides added flexibility for reduced piston scuffing.

SOS Sampling Valve

S.O.S sampling valve located near oil filter base speeds sampling.

C180101

The 5230 structural components are the backbone of the machines durability.

Castings

Heavy-duty castings are used extensively in high-stress areas for excellent, long-term structural durability.

Casting Uses

Castings are used in: Front end of the swing frame (with is a single, massive casting) Counterweight mounts, All boom and stick pin mounts, Carbody and Final drive mounts.

Box Section Construction

Rugged box section construction is used in key structures to proved unsurpassed strength while eliminating excess with. Box section construction is used in the booms, sticks, carbody and roller frames.

Digging Forces

High digging forces are a result of the efficient front linkage. Rod-ported bucket tilt cylinders eliminate external return lines, improving seal and rod life.

Floating Pins

One piece floating pins are used at swing frame to boom, boom to stick and stick to bucket joints for extra strength and life.

Front Structure Components

Front structure components are thermally stress relieved to reduce residual stresses from the welding process, increasing structure life.

CBuckets and Ground Engaging ToolsC080788148163

Aggressive bucket design and efficient linkage configuration promote high bucket fill factors.

FIll Factors

High fill factors for the 5230 front Shovel and Mass Excavator set this machine apart from the competition.

Box-Section Construction

Box-section construction is utilized in the dozer portion of front shovel buckets to provide torsional strength when the bucket is closed for digging.

Steel Castings

Steel castings are used in high-stress areas such as the dozer hinges, bowl pivots, cylinder mounts, and corner adapters.

Hardened Bearings

Hardened bearings improve the durability of the pivot and cylinder mounts in mass excavator buckets.

Wear Plates

Heat-treated steel is used to improve the service life of corner and center adapters, cutting edges and side bars which will be subjected to more abrasive conditions.

Coupler

Two piece coupler system for general purpose rock tips utilize a top-pinned coupler attached to a weld-on adapter nose. Tips are smaller and stay sharper, reducing throw away material. A one piece penetration tip is also available.

Variety

Several front shovel and backhoe buckets are available. Buckets range from rock/high density buckets to coal and light material buckets.

Undercarriage

Durable, maintenance-free undercarriage absorbs stresses and provides excellent stability.

Shovel Style Undercarriage

The Caterpillar shovel style undercarriage is a no-maintenance system. Free-floating track pins are positively retained and are designed for the life of the shoe.

Track Roller Frames

Track roller frames hold moving undercarriage components rigidly in place. They also absorb stress loads transmitted from the carbody.

Track tensioning

Automatic track tensioning maintains the correct track tension.

Three Shoe Widths

Three shoe widths are available to match your application: rock, general purpose and soft underfoot.

Wide Track Gauge

A wide track gauge offers the stability needed for top production.

Operator's Station

Designed for comfort and ease of operation.

Spacious Operator Compartments

Spacious operator compartments have exceptional, unobstructed view of the bucket and loading area.

Cab

Cab and nearby components are isolated to dampen sound and vibration.

Air Pressurization

Air pressurization with positive filtered ventilation keeps the cab environment comfortable and clean.

Seat

Contour series seat is fully adjustable for shift-long comfort.

Isringhausen Seat

Isringhausen seat is available as an option. The Isringhausen seat has weight-compensated support, three-way seat cushion adjustment and the backrest is adjustable.

Vital Information Management Sys

Provides operators, service technicians and managers with crucial operating data.

VIMS System

The Vital Information Management System continuously displays critical machine data.

Alert System

The three-category alert system provides advisory information to the operator when conditions in a monitored system exceed a prescribed setting for ordinary operations.

Diagnostic Program

The VIMS diagnostic program allows service personnel to download a complete record of machine data events and system diagnostics to a laptop computer.
