Workshop in Action: Caterpillar 980G Repair

August 25, 2010

This week we are attending to some faults on a Caterpillar 980G loading shovel.  The hitch bearings are badly worn and we have to ‘line-bore’ the trunion plates to accept our manufactured weld-in bushes.  When this is finished the replaceable bushes and bearings can be fitted.  All-in-all a time-consuming and expensive repair, this could have been avoided with a more diligent maintainance regime.
