Mid-may the trainers at Bergerat Monnoyeur, dealer, Caterpillar France, took advantage of a training in the use of tiltrotateur, mounted for the occasion on the all-new wheeled excavator Cat M315F. Meeting and explanations.—————— ADVERTISING ——————
Increasingly used in France, the tiltrotateur has long been the standard for the countries of the North like Sweden, Norway or Denmark, where it has changed the work habits. It is this experience that Bergerat Monnoyeur has wanted to bring to its demonstrators by inviting for the occasion, Mikael Holmström, a Swedish operator and a specialist of these tools. “In Sweden we find the tiltrotateur everywhere, and even on excavators of 30 tons, we he explains. The working speed is greatly improved, up to 40 % faster. The machine moves less and only has to change a tool in function of the progress of the work “. About the training : “The first day it was discussed a lot, done a lot of theory. The rest is dedicated to the practice : each demonstrator tries in turn to adapt to the situations that I offer them. The exchange is rich, I provide them with all the tips that I can, and I find the problems specific to France, including the little space available to work in the cities “.
Among the 5 demonstrators present, Serge Leboube, speaking about the region, gives us his impressions : “The tiltrotateur it is a new tool that will develop. It is proposed by Bergerat Monnoyeur optional but in the assembly factory. It is therefore important for us to know, and these 3 days allow us to both discover the tool to try and develop. Methods Swedish are a bit different, as explains Mikael [Holmström], the use of the “tilt” is much more intense than we are, and they do not hesitate to secure a construction site from A to Z with. Necessarily this requires special care, and this is what we learn here “.
This training is in support of the strategy for the integration of tiltrotateurs to excavators Caterpillar, an option now available on the entire range. Thanks to the factory assembly, the various adjustment possibilities of the tool are directly available on the main screen in the cabin, from which the operator can see and change the angles of rotation and tilt of the tool, but also save and recall them at need. The home was also equipped with two lines, high-speed hydraulic to connect to need hammers, tongs, or plates of compaction. A adaptable expanded represents a higher initial investment but it will be more quickly depreciated over time thanks to the great versatility of such holders, multi-tools.
The shovel also contributed to this training was the latest wheeled excavator Cat M315F, version low radius of gyration of the Cat M314F. “This is a shovel which has a radius of gyration reduced by 30 cm, with a counterweight heavier to a weight of about 1.5 to 2 t, explains Christophe Pupier, demonstrator for the South-eastern part. There are also possibilities of adjustments of the water, which allows you to adjust the machine according to its application with 3 different programs in order to encourage either the accuracy, or the nervousness of the machine. Side novelty we can also note the possibility of automating the blocking of the bridge and the brake as soon as the operator lifts the foot from the pedal of translation. “
The training took place on a site made available by the group Fish, in Gretz-Armeinvillier (77), of which the rental business includes a fleet of 450 machines, of which 60% is in the colours of Caterpillar. “This event allows us to open up and share information on the latest technical advances, says Benjamin Colinet, responsible for business development, and it is important for us to keep him informed of market developments to come. Because the goal for us is to be the bearer of solutions, not just carrier services. “A meeting will, therefore, have benefited everyone.
