What elements should a proper checklist for inspecting a used excavator contain?

Inspecting a used excavator is crucial to ensure that it is in good working condition and meets your requirements. Here’s a checklist to guide you through the inspection process:

  1. Overall Inspection:
  • Check for visible signs of damage, cracks, or welds on the frame.
  • Look for any signs of oil or fluid leaks underneath the machine.
  • Inspect the condition of the paint for rust, peeling, or excessive wear.
  1. Undercarriage:
  • Check the tracks or tires for wear, damage, or uneven tread wear.
  • Inspect the rollers, idlers, and sprockets for excessive wear.
  • Measure the track tension and check for any loose or damaged components.
  1. Engine:
  • Start the engine and check for unusual noises, smoke, or vibrations.
  • Inspect for oil leaks around the engine and related components.
  • Check the air filter for cleanliness.
  1. Hydraulics:
  • Test all hydraulic functions, including boom, arm, and bucket movements.
  • Look for leaks in hydraulic hoses, fittings, and connections.
  • Check the hydraulic fluid level and condition.
  1. Boom, Arm, and Bucket:
  • Inspect the boom, arm, and bucket for signs of damage, cracks, or excessive wear.
  • Check for smooth and precise operation of these components.
  • Ensure there is no play in the pivot points.
  1. Swing Drive & Gear:
  • Test the swing functionality for smooth operation.
  • Check for any unusual noises during the rotation.
  • Inspect the slew ring for wear or damage. Measure the play.
  1. Cab and Controls:
  • Inspect the condition of the cab, looking for damage, rust, or water leaks.
  • Test all controls for smooth operation.
  • Check the condition of the operator’s seat, seatbelt, and visibility.
  1. Tracks/Undercarriage:
  • Inspect the condition of tracks for any signs of damage or excessive wear.
  • Check the tension of the tracks.
  • Inspect the rollers, idlers, and sprockets for wear.
  1. Electrical System:
  • Inspect the battery for age and condition.
  • Test all lights, indicators, and gauges.
  • Check the condition of wiring and connectors.
  1. Fluids and Lubricants:
    • Check the levels of engine oil, hydraulic fluid, and coolant.
    • Inspect the color and condition of these fluids.
    • Look for any signs of contamination in the fluids.
  2. Documentation:
    • Request and review maintenance records, service history, and any available inspection reports.
    • Check the serial number and verify it against the provided documentation.
  3. Operational Test:
    • Take the excavator for a test drive to evaluate its performance.
    • Test the functionality of all components in real-world conditions.

Always consider having a qualified mechanic or a Mevas-Technician perform a thorough inspection if you are not experienced in evaluating heavy equipment. Additionally, consulting the manufacturer’s guidelines and specifications for the specific model of the excavator is essential for a comprehensive assessment.
