The two main sections of an excavator are the undercarriage and the house. The undercarriage includes the blade (if fitted) tracks track frame and final drives which have a hydraulic motor and gearing providing the drive to the individual tracks and the house includes the operator cab counterweight engine fuel and hydraulic oil tanks. The house attaches to the undercarriage by way of a center pin. High pressure oil is supplied to the tracks hydraulic motors through a hydraulic swivel at the axis of the pin allowing the machine to slew 360° unhindered.
In 1842 Deere entered a business partnership with Leonard Andrus and purchased land for the construction of a new two-story factory along the Rock River in Illinois. This factory named the "L. Andrus Plough Manufacturer" produced about 100 plows in 1842 and around 400 plows during the next year. Deeres partnership with Andrus ended in 1848 and Deere relocated to Moline Illinois to have access to the railroad and the Mississippi River. There Deere formed a partnership with Robert Tate and John Gould and built a 1440-square-foot (134 m2) factory the same year. Production rose quickly and by 1849 the Deere Tate & Gould Company was producing over 200 plows a month. A two-story addition to the plant was built allowing further production.
Excavators (hydraulic) are heavy construction equipment consisting of a boom dipper (or stick) bucket and cab on a rotating platform known as the "house".1 The house sits atop an undercarriage with tracks or wheels. They are a natural progression from the steam shovels and often mistakenly called power shovels. All movement and functions of a hydraulic excavator are accomplished through the use of hydraulic fluid with hydraulic cylinders and hydraulic motors.2 Due to the linear actuation of hydraulic cylinders their mode of operation is fundamentally different from cable-operated excavators which use winches and steel ropes to accomplish the movements.
