Atlas – Terex

Atlas – Terex

In General:

Atlas – Terex construction machines can be identified from the following numbers:

  Location (short description)
Serial number – stamped onto the superstructure, on the front right, as seen in the direction of travel, onto the cab underframe
– stamped onto the chassis on the front right, as seen in the direction of travel
– on a type plate on the superstructure, on the front right, as seen in the direction of travel; the plate is fixed on with rivets
– The type plates are engraved. The script is slightly indented
Engine Number – engraved onto an adhesive and a riveted type plate
– the type plates are on the valve cover near the oil filler neck.
Gearbox Number – Etched onto a riveted type plate. The type plate is on the gearbox housing, in the centre of the chassis
– The last 6 digits of the model/power train number have been wrought on, on the right, next to the type plate

 

The serial number can be used to determine the units installed when the vehicle was first delivered. On Atlas – Terex GmbH machines it is possible to do a reverse check by using the basic data cards to ascertain the condition in which a particular machine was originally delivered.

Serial number >> Power train = yes
Power train >> Serial number = Yes / using the basic data cards

2. Type Plate:

There is a type plate on every mach.

2.1 Location of the type plate

2.1.1 Location of the type plate on wheeled excavators

The type plate containing the serial number is fixed on with rivets and is on the front of the upper structure on the right (as seen in the direction of travel).

Example of the type 155

2.1.2 Location of the type plate on crawler excavators

The type plate with the VIN is fixed on with rivets and is located on the front part of the vehicle on the right, as seen in the direction of travel

Example of the type 284

2.2 Composition of the type plate

2.2.1/2.2.2 Composition of the type plates on wheeled and crawler excavators

The type plates are engraved. The script is slightly indented

The type plates contain the following data:

Manufacturer (Name and country)

Model

Year of manufacture

Serial number (VIN)

Maximum weight

Permissible axle load, front

Maximum axle load, rear axle

Engine performance

CE Mark

3. Engine Number:

3.1 Location of the engine number

3.1.1/3.1.2 Location of the engine number on wheeled and crawler excavators

The engine number is engraved onto an adhesive and a riveted type plate. The type plates are on the valve cover.

· The engine number is called “Serial No” on adhesive type plates. Adhesive type plates are put on at the works and cannot be removed without destroying them.

· On riveted type plates the engine number is called “Eng. No” and it is also found in bar code form.

The engine manufacturers (Deutz and Cummins) have adopted the same numbering system. The serial number cannot be determined from the engine number.

3.2 Appearance of the engine number

The engine number on engines produced by Deutz has 10-characters and   consecutive, regardless of the kind of engine.

The serial numbers of all engines manufactured by Deutz   stored in a database at Deutz and can   traced.

The following information can   obtained via the engine serial number: 

Using the engine number, the construction machine manufacturer can identify the particular machine in which the engine was installed.

 

4. Gearbox number:

4.1 Location of the gearbox number

4.1.1 Location of the gearbox number on wheeled excavators

The type plate containing the etched gearbox number   fixed on with rivets and   located on the gearbox housing, in the middle, beneath the chassis. The last 6 digits of the model/power train number have   wrought on, on the right, next to the type plate.

4.1.2 Location of the gearbox number on crawler excavators

The type plate containing the etched gearbox number  fixed on with rivets and  located on the gearbox housing. Both sets of gears are located on the right and on the left on the side frames of the track units (at the rear, as seen in the direction of travel).

4.2 Composition of the gearbox number

The gearbox number   a 10-character consecutive number contained on the type plate in the field for the article number [Stücklisten-Nr].

Using the article number, the manufacturer can identify:

· for which construction machine manufacturer the gearbox   produced, and

· of which components it consists.

The cast metal parts number cannot   used for identification purposes.

4.2.2 What the serial number looks like on crawler excavators

The gearbox number on sets produced by the Italian company TRASMITAL   an 8-digit consecutive number contained on the type plate in the field used for the serial number.
Using the serial number the exact machine for which the gearbox   produced can   identified via the excavator’s basic data card.

5. Other usefull information:

Atlas – Terex GmbH machines   painted in RAL codes. Bear in mind that the superstructure   painted in RAL 2001 (orange), the chassis in RAL 7011 and the cab in RAL 9006.

Machines produced for the Spanish, Scottish, Dutch and American markets   painted in Terex 1013.

6. Vehicle Keys:

Construction machines use unitary keys as there are few other locks requiring other keys. Keys cannot   used for identification purposes.
