Mini Digger

Post #1 by Jeff Hall » Tue Feb 11, 2014 9:35 pm

Hi All,

We have just purchased a mini digger which we are led to believe is a Volvo Peljob 1 ton powered by a 2 cylinder diesel engine. It looks an old machine but digs quite well even tough there is a considerable slop in the bushes. It also has a lot of movement in the slew.

Please can anyone advise how we tighten the movement in the slew, and where would I be able to obtain a manual on this machine

Many thanks
Jeff

Hi Jeff, try volvo for a manual, digbits offer cheap aftermarket pins and bushes that should do you. As for side play, well more importatent it has n't got up and down play in the slew ring. Grease it up well and give it a go. Slew rings are available service exchange. The side play maybe down to the slew motor, check its bolted up tight. Good luck. :thumbup:
