Once you have the correct component located in the correct position, the next concern is how easy is it to access. Whether it is to provide routine maintenance or repair/replace a component access is the key. In the real world routine maintenance is more likely to be done on a consistent basis if the access is easy. AllTerra has provided a 2 tier access design. Major side panels have smaller access doors located within the panel. Routine observations and access to valves, filters and drain plugs are made thru the smaller doors. The larger side panels can be removed in order to access major components.
"If it is not on the machine, it can not break.....Keep it simple!"
The maintenance department was not an afterthought. AllTerra's design concept incorporates three of the most important aspects of maintenance; robust components, component location and component access. In the real world of 'Underground Coal Mining' it is not a matter of 'IF' there is going to be a maintenance issue, it is a matter of how easy is it to repair/replace that component. AllTerra has engineered-in component location and access as a high priority. Location reduces component abuse and removable panels allows for easier troubleshooting and eventual repair or replacement.
After components are specified, location becomes the next challenge. It is of little value to have the best components and then locate them in areas where they are vulnerable to physical or environmental abuse.
Engine and Transaxle are located above a 3/8" thick skid plates
First and foremost, component selection is a top priority, AllTerra designs-in some of the most heavy duty components manufactured for the most demanding requirements found in the 'Underground Mining Environment'.
