This paper presents a three dimensional modeling and dynamic anlaysis of a hydraulic excavator. An excavator is composed of a ground, an under-frame, two idlers, two spockets, an upper-frame, a boom, an arm, a bucket two yokes, two connecting rods, two boom cylinders, an arm cylinder, and a bucket cylinder. Each cylinder is modeled with two separate bodies which are linked to each other by a translational joint. The three dimensioanl model of the excavator consists of 22 bodies and each body is assumed as rigid. This paper suggested the maximum lifting capability, a critical load and reaction forces at joints form the DADS simulation. It was presumed that the reaction forces due to a critical load are three times bigger than those due to the maximum lifting capacity.
