Agricultural, Forestry, Construction, and Mining Equipment
Agricultural, forestry, construction and mining equipment pose different challenges for investigators as these types of equipment are often a combination of mechanical and hydraulic systems in order to operate the equipment. Introduction of the hydraulic system adds a new challenge for investigators as they need to be able to identify and examine the pumps, lines, and fittings connecting the motors and other hydraulic components. These types of equipment are often working in a more hazard filled environment with combustible organic material such as crop material or wood chips and other ignitable fuel sources that can collect and be ignited by hot surfaces.
