This excavator is in Siberia, Russia so the lubrication system is in a very harsh and cold environment. Walking excavator is used in the open pit mining sector. Large quantity of earth is dug up and transported into the main production department where the raw material of Carbon is separated from soil.

Important Points of the System

​The temperature reaches ‐50°C and some points and pumps are placed outside. Engineering phase is essential on this type of project considering the harsh environment.
