The 330D MH Waste Handler front linkage is designed to provide the excellent reach and durability necessary to meet the requirements of transfer station and demolition applications.
Heavy-Duty Boom and StickThe heavy duty reach boom and heavy duty 10.5 ft stick are more robust than the standard reach boom and stick. The "heavy-duty" features include thicker plates throughout the design to handle the increased loading experienced in transfer station applications.The front linkage has a maximum horizontal reach of 9.4 m (31 ft) and maximum vertical pin height of 8.8 m (29 ft). Thus, the working range of the machine provides an excellent match for loading hauling units from a platform or from level ground.
Welded Box-Section StructuresThe boom and stick are designed and built for maximum durability and performance. Efficient design of welded box-section structures with thick, multi-plate fabrications and internal baffle plates in high stress areas maximizes strength and durability required for the loading conditions of transfer stations and demolition applications.
Stress Relieved Boom and StickThe boom and stick are stress relieved to maximize the strength of the weld joints. The process of stress relieving also allows for the structure weight to be minimized, allowing heavier payload capacity.
Waste Handler Structures
The 330D MH Waste Handler has many structural components that add strength to the machine to improve it's durability.
Heavy-Duty Upper FrameUpper box-section reinforcement on the upeer frame provide additional strength for improved durability.Horizontal mounting plate provides more surface area for swing drive and swing bearing mounting bolts to handle increased loading.The heavy-duty upper frame has many specifically designed features for added strength and improved durability in waste handling applications. It is composed of higher strength material and thicker steel sections to handle the increased loading activity seen in waste transfer stations and demolition applications.Boom tower double plates add thick steel reinforcements to handle the greater stresses caused by increased loading.Box-section cylinder mounts allow for improved resistance against increased torsional loads and payloads.
Waste Handler Guarding
The 330D MH Waste Handler is equipped with special guarding, designed specifically for the challenges faced in waste handling and demolition applications.
Rubber BumpersThe rubber bumpers provide much needed guarding to protect the sheet metal of the machine from being damaged while maneuvering in tight areas.
Swivel GuardThe swivel guard, designed specifically for waste applications, protects the swivel from the wrapping of debris. This will allow more uptime through the decrease in maintenance associated with removing video tape and wire from the swivel.
Swing Bearing GuardThe swing bearing guard is a bolt on guard that protects the swing bearing from any damage by shielding it from any potential sources of wrapping such as video tapes and wire. It also prevents packing of debris around the swing bearing.
Falling Object GuardsThe optional falling object guard protects the cab and front windshield from debris in transfer stations.
Waste Handling Features
The waste handler has been designed with many benefit adding features to enhance its performance in waste applications.
Trash Resistant Cooling SystemA Trash Resistant Cooling arrangement reduces cooling system maintenance and downtime when operating in environments with large amounts of airborne debris such as feeding shredders in scrap applications, waste transfer stations, demolition and forestry applications. This package will also help avoid costly engine and hydraulic repairs and downtime resulting from overheating caused by a plugged cooling system. This arrangement is standard on the 330D MH Waste Handler.
Trash Resistant Cooling Features
- Debris Filters - These stainless steel mesh filters trap debris before it enters the house, keeping it out of the radiator and oil cooler. These filters can be easily removed and cleaned. A second set of filters minimizes downtime, allowing the operator to keep working while the first set is cleaned.
- Hydraulic Automatic Reversing Fan on the oil cooler.
Cooling SystemThe cooling fan is hydraulically driven and controlled by the ECM. The optimum fan speed is calculated based on the ambient temperature, coolant temperature and hydraulic oil temperature. This unique feature assists in the management of engine power and improves noise efficiency. The C9 delivered a completely new layout that separates the cooling system from the compartment. The auto reversing fan is controlled by the ECM and is adjustable.
Heavier CounterweightThe 330D MH Waste Handler has been outfitted with a counterweight that is 25% heavier than a standard 330D L counterweight for better stability while handling waste or demolition debris.
Cab RiserThe standard 2.6 m (8.5 ft) cab riser provides for elevated operating height to improve visibility while loading waste into a hauling unit and allows the operator to see over obstructions in the transfer station.
Turbine PrecleanerThe standard turbine precleaner helps keep debris away from the cooling system by removing debris from the air intake. The 330C MH Waste Handler is also equipped with the SyKlone Optimax dual stage engine precleaner which purges remaining debris from intake air, providing longer air filter and engine life.
SyKlone Gideon Cab Air PrecleanerThis cab air precleaner extends cab air filter life, increases operator comfort by effectively eliminating dust and odor, and keeps evaporator and heater coils clean.
Cab Mounted BeaconThe cab mounted beacon flashes whenever the master disconnect is on.
In-cab Master DisconnectAn additional master disconnect switch is provided in the cab for easier operator access.
Engine and Hydraulics
Caterpillar designed engine and hydraulics work together to give the 330D MH Waste Handler an exceptional combination of speed and power required in waste and demolition applications.
EngineSix-cylinder, turbocharged engine built for power, reliability, and economy will allow the machine to consistently perform at high levels. The CAT® C9 engine is designed for low emissions and will meet EPA Tier 3 emissions requirements.
PerformanceThe 330D MH, equipped with the C9 engine with ACERT™ Technology, provides 9% more horsepower as compared to the C9 in the 330C MH.
Electronic Control ModuleThe Electronic Control Module (ECM) works as the 'brain' of the engine's control system, responding quickly to operating variables to maximize engine efficiency. Fully integrated with sensors in the engine's fuel, air, coolant and exhaust systems, the ECM stores and relays information on conditions such as RPM, fuel consumption and diagnostic information.
Automatic Engine Speed ControlThe two-stage, one-touch control maximizes fuel efficiency and reduces sound levels.
ADEM™ A4 Engine ControllerThe ADEM™ A4 electronic control module manages fuel delivery to get the best performance per liter of fuel used. The engine management system provides flexible fuel mapping, allowing the engine to respond quickly to varying application needs. It tracks engine and machine conditions while keeping the engine operating at peak efficiency.
Hydraulic Cross Sensing SystemImproves productivity with faster implement speed and quick, strong pivot turns.
Fine Swing ControlFine swing control cushions swing start and stop for better implement control.
Hydraulic Cylinder SnubbersThe hydraulic cylinder snubbers at the rod-end of the boom cylinders and both ends of the stick cylinders cushion shock to improve cylinder life.
ControllabilityThe hydraulic system offers very precise operator control to reduce fatigue and improve operator efficiency translating into enhanced machine performance and productivity.
Boom and Stick Regeneration CircuitBoom and stick regeneration circuit increases efficiency and reduces cycle time for higher productivity and lower operating costs.
Mechanical and hydraulic work tools are offered by Caterpillar to maximize machine performance in waste and demolition applications.
Trash GrappleThe Cat Work Tools trash grapple has been designed to meet the requirements of waste handling. Powered by the bucket cylinder, the trash grapple mechanically works to compact trash while placing it into the bed of the hauling unit. This helps to maximize the amount of waste that can be placed into one unit, maximizing efficiency.
