Warrnambool Hydraulics designed and installed the hydraulic system to run an upgraded shear attachment on this PC4000. This shear was custom manufactured in the USA for our customer McMahon Services. This is the largest mobile shear in the world. Warrnambool Hydraulics were requested to custom design modifications to the existing hydraulic circuit on the 400 tonne excavator. The PC4000 failed to supply sufficient pressure and flow to operate the shear to its full potential. The new system was designed around available components. Warrnambool Hydraulics was commissioned to complete these improvements within a six week timeline.
Warrnambool Hydraulics engineered custom cylinders to accommodate this attachment and have been involved in further upgrades for other attachments.
