Recently we had a call from a new client who was having trouble with their brakes on a Case 580SK Backhoe. They had owned the machine for over ten years & said that they felt the brakes had never really performed as they should. The machine was “only used once or twice a week, for[…]
Recently we carried out an oil leak repair on a Case TR270 which could have been avoided if the machine had been given some TLC. While this post is specifically dealing with the TR270, we have noticed similar issues with all track type skid steer loaders. The current owner had only purchased the machine 3[…]
ALR carried out a brake repair job on a Case 521D this week. We found a couple of problems with this loader as the brake discs had completely worn out on the rear axle & this allowed hydraulic oil to enter the rear axle through the brake piston seals. Also, the wrong oil had been[…]
Keeping an eye on coolant temperature is very important. Regular cleaning of your radiator is a vital part of caring for your machine. In severe dusty conditions, this may need to be carried out each day. Usually blowing out the radiator core with compressed air or even a garden leaf blower – in the opposite[…]
It never ceases to amaze me how neglected some machinery can be. Often when a customer asks me to service their newly acquired, used excavator, I always suggest a full service to give their service records a clean slate. Most times we find the final drives to be completely neglected, with the condition of the oil[…]
I was at the workshop of one of my clients & noticed a small engine oil leak on the ground, beneath their Case 855E track loader or drott as they are commonly called here. I suggested that we had better take a look ASAP, as that type of leak is usually caused by a hole[…]
When your hydraulic cylinders are leaking oil, some people think that a workshop repair is required. We can reseal most cylinders onsite with a minimum of fuss on most machines up to about 8 – 10 tonnes. This includes – all skid steer bobcats; backhoe loaders; some wheel loaders; most crawler loaders, drotts, & dozers;[…]
I would like to take this opportunity to thank Andrew Frino and his staff at ALR for their ongoing support and meticulous eye for detail in servicing and repairs of our loader on site. As a contractor for Ipswich City Council it is imperative to have a machine operable 7 days a week. Andrew has[…]
Most Case backhoes since the mid to late 80’s run “wet” brakes. This means that the brakes run in oil. This was a great advancement in backhoe transmission / brake design, as it allowed a much longer service life in comparison to the earlier “dry” brake design. It does mean however, that when the brakes[…]
Problem – Received a call from customer saying they are having trouble starting the engine on their Case 430 Skid Steer Loader. After a series of questions it seemed the machine had rolled over & the operator had failed to shut down the engine…. Hmmm… Diagnosis – An on-site inspection was carried out & amongst an[…]
