Improving safety at Savage River with Smart Technology
Savage River called upon RCT’s help to customise a Line-of-Sight package for their Hitachi EX1200 excavator which would allow them to interchange the excavator with a rock breaker attachment.
The excavator was being used to dig holes and trenches and perform batter scaling and the modification would see the machine being used for normal excavation works and for rock breaking if there was a blockage in the main crusher.
