The wheel loader is a vital machine for any ready mixed concrete plant.
The main function of wheel loader is to shovel and load loose materials and transport them in short distance. It has the advantages of fast operation speed, high efficiency, good maneuverability and easy operation. Any batching plant machine park would be incomplete without a wheel loader. What wheel loaders are, how they work and what kinds of tasks they can help with in readymix batching plants will be explained briefly in this e-Book.
Wheel loaders are used for different purposes in ready mixed facilities. There is a lot of material movement and loading which is done routine or continuous, special or sometimes. Major tasks to be carried out by a wheel loader at a batching plant are mixing and handling of aggregates, truck loading, backfilling and bush clearing, lifting of materials, towing for recovery, etc.
Although there are many types of mobile machines that can be used for these jobs, wheel loaders are preferred because of their high mobility and versality. The mobility of wheel loaders is a very important reason for preference for ready-mixed concrete plants. This machine can be used inside and the outside of the facility, if necessary.
A wheel loader that is not well taken care of and not used properly can cause fatal accidents in ready mixed concrete plants, to plant equipment, to company trucks, the supplier’s trucks carrying aggregate and cement etc. On the other hand, in case of malfunction, the operation of the plant is at risk. If the wheel loader is out of work, it can cause great losses to the plant.
The wheel loader operator is generally responsible for the safe and proper handling, loading and storage of aggregate materials and for the proper care and maintenance of the machine.
However, since the wheel loader will not be given a full-time job for production in ready mixed concrete plants, the operator is also expected to assist with other tasks with or without the machine such as maintenance of ready-mix plant equipment and for general housekeeping of plant property and premises.
This e-Book has been prepared for general information purposes. It is intended for the use of wheel loader operators, production and safety professionals and other related plant personnel. The study covers following chapters; what is wheel loader, operating wheel loaders, inspection of wheel loader, working at batchplant, other loader works, loader maintenance, work safely, hazard control, loader operatör, etc.
