Elphinstone WR810 Delivery with crane

Reliable transport and day-to-day heavy lifting

With a payload of 11,130 kilograms, the new WR810 Delivery with crane ensures parts, components, equipment, and maintenance personnel are transported safely and securely throughout the mine.

The fully integrated Hiab X-HiDuo 092 ‘optimal performance’ loader crane features a rated lifting capacity of 8.8 tonne metre (TM) and a 7.7-metre outreach, providing a reliable solution for day-to-day heavy lifting.

Manual or Wireless Operation

Operated by manual lever control or via the wireless joystick remote, the operator can manoeuvre loads from a distance with built-in intelligence and automatic speed control (ASC) for safe and effective load handling.

Safety Features

Safety features include emergency crane stops located on the manual control station and wireless joystick remote. Stabiliser legs with levelling sensors provide a safe foundation with easy pack up for safe transit. The checker plate deck features thoughtfully positioned tie-down points and three-point access with high visibility green handrails and ladders on both sides.

Other safety features include firewalls and heatshields, machine interlocks, centralised isolation points (engine disconnect switch, starter isolation switch, jump-start receptacle and fire system activation, if fitted). Optional features include an integrated fire suppression system and metallic fuel water separators made from a non-flammable material.

Ground Level Emergency Stops

Emergency stops are fitted as standard inside the cabin, at ground level on the front left-hand side of the machine and located near the access ladders on the left- and right-hand side of the deck.

Tier 3 and Tier 4 Final Engine Arrangements

The C7.1 ACERT Tier 4 Final engine arrangement is optional, adhering to EU Stage V exhaust emission standards. The engine arrangement offers a dual horsepower configuration set at 151 kilowatts (202 horsepower) for a higher performance rating.

The lower reduced ventilation rating at 129 kilowatts (173 horsepower) is possible through a simple software change performed by a Caterpillar dealer.

The C7.1 ACERT Tier 3 engine arrangement rated at 168 kilowatts (225hp) is the standard option for less stringent emission regulations. Matched to the engine is a Cat five-speed (three-speed reverse) transmission fitted with a lock-up torque converter.

Operator Station

Integrated into the WR810 operator station is a ROPS (roll-over protective structure) ISO 3471:2008 and FOPS (falling object protective structure) ISO 3449:2005 that offers protection to the operator.
The operator station is designed to seat three people in comfort with exceptional visibility. This is ideal for training purposes, and allows the complete crew to travel collectively rather than deploying an additional light vehicle for personnel transport.
The driver’s seat is a ‘T’ seat with air suspension, and the crew seats are a standard ‘T’ seat or optional ‘T’ seat with air suspension.
Ergonomically designed machine controls are located for the operator to control the machine functions with minimal effort. The result is greater concentration on vehicle operation, with reduced operator fatigue.

Elphinstone WR810 Series

The WR810 is the smaller of Elphinstone's two purpose built base support platforms.  Available in forward or centre mount cab configuration, the WR810 features an integrated Caterpillar powertrain delivering optimum performance and reliability in tough underground conditions.

ACERT™ Technology Caterpillar optimizes engine performance while meeting EPA Tier 3 regulations. ACERT™ Technology reduces emissions during the combustion process by using advanced technology in the air and fuel systems, in conjunction with  integrated electronics. The Caterpillar engine meets emission regulations at the combustion source rather than recycling exhaust gases.

The C7.1 ACERT Tier 4 Final engine arrangement is optional, adhering to EU Stage V exhaust emission standards. The engine arrangement offers a dual horsepower configuration set at 151 kilowatts (202 horsepower) for a higher performance rating.

 

C11 ACERT EngineCat C7.1 Engine

The Cat C7.1 uses Caterpillar's breakthrough ACERT™ Technology to meet exhaust emission reduction standards. It features efficient fuel delivery, air management and electronic control for high productivity and exceptional service life.

The four-stroke engine provides efficient fuel combustion. Precise engineering and thorough testing assure durability, reliability and power. Built-in serviceability and excellent fuel economy lower operating costs.

Cat Five Speed TransmissionCat Five-Speed Transmission

The field proven Caterpillar power shift countershaft transmission easily matches engine power to the load size and ground conditions. Electronic control makes fingertip controls possible, reducing operator fatigue and improving comfort.

Gear Application Gear ratios are designed to maximise productivity in specific cycle segments: Gear 1 provides highest rimpull capability for heavy load applications;  Gear 2 and 3 for normal loads and higher speed operations; Gear 4 and 5 provide excellent empty return and roading speeds.
