Link-Belt 750 X4 excavator provides a production workhorse for various demanding tasks
LBX Company announces the Link-Belt 750 X4 excavator for the US and Canada, featuring an electronically-controlled 512 horsepower Isuzu engine that meets EPA Final Tier 4 requirements, without the need for a diesel particulate filter (DPF). The 750 X4 is a production workhorse, suitable for demolition, haul road construction, aggregates work and other demanding tasks.
“The 750X4 moves more tons in fewer hours and less cost,” said Adam Woods, LBX Product Manager. “Compared to its predecessor, the 750 X4 delivers up to 7% faster cycle times and 15% increased arm digging force. Two electrically controlled Kawasaki variable-displacement axial piston pumps and one Kawasaki gear pump assure that hydraulic flow gets delivered precisely when and where it’s needed. The end result is more smoothness, maneuverability and precision across all operating modes.
“The 750 X4 delivers a thrifty 3% DEF consumption rate,” Woods continued. “Combined with the large DEF tank, you can work long hours without having to worry about refilling DEF.” The FOPS-certified cab provides improved operator ergonomics and comfort. A large, automotive-grade high-back seat offers unprecedented lumbar support and tilts to a 155° maximum reclining angle for a relaxed environment during breaks. Arm rests move proportionally with the console, which means that the distance and angle between joysticks and operator remains the same, no matter how the seat is adjusted.
A large, 7-inch LED color monitor allows the operator to easily navigate a full menu of user-friendly controls to take full command of the excavator and attachments. The standard rear-view camera is accessible through the monitor, displaying a panoramic view of the worksite from the rear of the machine, with sight guidelines that can be turned on or off by the operator. Rear and side lights can also be added to the camera system.
For the ultimate in visibility, the Wide Angle Visual Enhancement System (WAVES) can be added. “WAVES is an exclusive, award-winning feature for Link-Belt X4 excavators,” Woods said. “The system is easy to use and includes three closed-circuit, high resolution cameras that provide a seamless 270° viewing envelope with no blind spots.”
Other notable new cab features include: dual halogen cab lights (with optional LED lighting); a cup holder and storage areas for cell phones and other small items; newly designed joysticks with easy-to-hold grip and radio mute buttons; new MP3 audio input, Bluetooth-enabled for hands-free communication. A standard control pattern changer so every operator can feel right at home. The catwalk has been widened to provide convenient maintenance access to all routine service points, including sample ports for engine and hydraulic oil. All service ports are easily accessed via hand-turn knobs.
RemoteCARE GPS-enabled telematics system allows 24/7 remote monitoring and security. The system tracks and records routine and major service intervals, as well as machine health, providing more flexibility and control when determining when and where to service machines. It also lets you be more proactive if potential failure conditions arise; flashing diagnostic codes on the monitor quickly alert the operator to potential trouble and an e-mail alert is automatically sent. The system also provides machine location in real time for better job supervision and remote security monitoring. A 6-year subscription is included at no extra charge.
