While mobile material handling machines equipped with tires are limited to working on asphalt and paved surfaces, machines with crawler undercarriages are able to showcase their advantages on inadequately paved and yielding surfaces. This is the case at many wharfage facilities, where port operators are quick to show their preference for the sturdy and powerful crawler machines built by Fuchs®. In addition, a multitude of options is available for these machines depending on the ground and application involved: Mechanical and hydraulic track adjustment systems, XL-trac undercarriages for particularly tall pylons, and shoes optimized for each type of surface, among many other features, ensure that virtually no request or requirement will go unsatisfied with these mobile material handling machines.
Sturdy triple-grouser shoes for unpaved surfaces. Flat shoes (with a width of up to 800 mm) exert a minimum amount of ground pressure even while handling large loads.
For especially tall pylons with a height of up to 7 m, machines can be equipped with an XL-trac undercarriage.
Hydraulic adjustment systems get crawler undercarriages ready for transportation and operation the fastest, while mechanical adjustment systems are enormously sturdy and easy-to-maintain.
