Loader fuel saving tips


When we buy wheel loaders, we usually need to master some fuel saving tips about wheel loaders, which can reduce fuel consumption and thus reduce operating costs. This is very important for engineering contractors, construction companies and other businesses that use wheel loaders because it can increase their profits and competitiveness. Here are some tips on fuel saving for wheel loaders compiled by the OXPLO brand.

1. Correct driving behavior: A smooth cab is the key to improving fuel efficiency. Avoid rapid acceleration and sudden braking, and try to maintain a stable speed. Avoid unnecessary sharp turns to reduce energy loss and tire friction.

2. Proper load management: According to the work needs, reasonable management and control of the load of the loader. A heavy load will increase the engine load, resulting in increased fuel consumption. Ensure that the load is within the rated working range of the loader and avoid unnecessary overloading.

3. Tire maintenance: Keep the tire pressure within the appropriate range, according to the manufacturer's recommendations for regular inspection and inflation. Low air pressure increases tire rolling resistance, resulting in increased fuel consumption. In addition, ensure that tire pattern depth and tire wear are in good condition to optimize traction and reduce rolling resistance.

4. Turn off the engine during downtime: If the loader needs to stay for a period of time during downtime, such as waiting for loading and unloading or stopping adjustment, turn off the engine. A long idle time wastes fuel. Keep the engine running only when needed.

5. Regular maintenance: Regular maintenance of the loader, including the replacement of air filters, fuel filters and oil filters. Cleaning and keeping the engine and drivetrain in working order provides fuel efficiency.

6. Reduce no-load driving: try to avoid no-load driving, unnecessary no-load driving will waste fuel, reasonable planning of work tasks, reduce the distance and number of no-load driving.

In the above mentioned reduction of no-load driving, which has a great help to save the oil of the wheel loader, how can we reduce the no-load driving of the loader?

1. Optimize the work plan: rationally plan the work tasks to minimize the number and distance of no-load driving. Through reasonable arrangement of loading and unloading tasks, try to avoid the loader in the absence of load.

2. Reasonable material management: On the work site, the loader should be as close as possible to the source and destination of loading and unloading goods. This can reduce the loader's no-load travel distance.

3. Multi-task operation: When waiting for loading and unloading of goods or other work, try to arrange the loader to perform other tasks to make full use of its working capacity. For example, cleaning up work sites, transporting materials or providing support for other equipment.

4. Joint tasking: Cooperate and coordinate with other equipment or vehicles to minimize no-load travel. For example, negotiate with truck drivers to enable loaders to load or unload cargo in a timely manner, avoiding unnecessary round trips.

5. The use of cargo containers or buckets: the installation of appropriate cargo containers or buckets on the loader can improve the loading efficiency when loading and unloading goods and reduce the number of no-load travel. Make sure the size and capacity of the container or bucket match the requirements of the job.

6. Implement real-time monitoring and scheduling: Use remote monitoring technology and scheduling system to monitor and manage the position and status of the loader in real time. This allows for better coordination of task distribution and reduces the need to travel empty.

7. Driver training and awareness-raising: Professional training is provided to drivers to teach them how to effectively plan their work and reduce no-load driving. Raise awareness of energy conservation among drivers and encourage them to actively participate in strategies to reduce no-load driving.
