Our customer needed a Hi-Rail excavator that had increased ground clearance, could operate high powered attachments, and was able to transport heavy rail car loads. The Ceres team of engineers rose to the challenge and designed and built a product based upon the Caterpillar 541 Feller Buncher.
This Ceres customer was having repeat issues with an electrical system on an OEM skid steer. This particular system component enabled a skid steer to couple up to multiple attachments. The component was failing in harsh environments, thus disabling the automated connection to a work tool. In some cases, the failed connection would stop the entire machine from using any work tools.
