Reach another level with the Boss Extractor 4000
Deep pit excavation is tricky, expensive and labor-intensive work unless of course you have the Boss Extractor 4000.
The Extractor series come in a range of sizes from 20 metres up to 45 metres. The unit we got to preview was set up for an impressive 40 metre reach using a Volvo EC480DL excavator jam packed with bespoke features.
Boss Attachments were appointed with customising the complete machine for optimal performance making modifications such as a glass floor to enable the operator to see directly over the excavation site in addition to the twin camera system supplied showing you exactly where the bucket is at all times with a 360 view.
The cab of the machine is capable of sliding forward 2.6 metres and has an auto lock out system to ensure utmost safety so there is no fear of damaging anything or more importantly falling into the hole. The complete setup goes from the very front of the excavator all the way to the back to the 4.6 tonne underslung counterweight which is one of the neatest weights we have seen.
The Boss Extractor 4000 features a unique backfill function allowing operators to use the bucket to put dirt back into the hole where generally telearms are used solely to take dirt out. This is a very first for telearms and only available on the current Boss Extractor series.
There are a range of buckets available and the model we viewed featured a 1.5 m3 bucket that is capable of reaching the full 40 metres down in 13 seconds, picking up a load and coming back up in 15 seconds.
Ordinarily for deep pit excavation you would need an excavator below loading up a skip bin, a crane pulling the bin up and a second excavator up top then processing the material once tipped from the bin. That’s three machines, three operators and two machines sitting stagnant the whole time. Very expensive, very time consuming and clunky to say the least. The Boss Telearm makes that old process completely draconian and redundant.
Furthermore the arm is easily removed within minutes so you can easily go back to having a standard excavator onsite as soon as required.
The Boss Extractor 4000 is ideally suited for foundation works, narrow excavation shafts, metro stations, underground parking, underground renovations, canal clearance, and much more!
