Boom/Stick/Bucket Combinations
`
1.1. M316C Excavators
2.1. M318C Excavators
3.1. M322C Excavators

The following tables identify the acceptable combinations of the bucket and the stick. The acceptable combinations are determined by the stability of the machine. Minimum stability occurs when the following conditions occur:

  • The linkage is oriented over the side of the machine.

  • The blade (if equipped) and/or stabilizers (if equipped) are raised.

  • The linkage is fully extended with a fully loaded bucket.

Note: For each bucket, only the longest stick that has acceptable stability is shown. All other sticks which are shorter are also acceptable.
