Front Linkage

Made for high stress and long service life

Booms and Sticks

The 324E is offered with a range of booms and sticks (see list below). Each is built with internal baf e plates for added durability, and each undergoes ultrasound inspection to ensure weld quality and reliability.

Large box-section structures with thick, multi-plate fabrications, castings, and forgings are used in high-stress areas such as the boom nose, boom foot, boom cylinder, and stick foot to improve durability.

The boom nose pin retention method is a durable captured ag design. Boom durability is improved with a number of plate thickness changes. Also, the front linkage pins’ inner bearing surfaces are welded, and a self-lubricated bearing is used to extend service intervals and increase uptime.

Selections

There are three basic boom options: HD, SLR, and ME. Sticks match the boom descriptions and applications below:

HD = Heavy Duty

This type of boom is best used for reach applications where conditions are optimal such as excavating basements, trenching for utility lines, and sewer applications.

SLR = Super Long Reach

This con guration offers reaches to 60 feet. It is well suited for ditch cleaning applications.

ME = Mass Excavation

Mass is best used for quarry, high-volume loading, and other demanding applications. Mass fronts provide higher digging forces due to the geometry of the boom and stick relationship. Bucket linkage and cylinders are also built for greater durability.
