What does the 315 mean in a cat 315 excavator?

The 315 is a model size of the excavator. Cat uses the last 2 numbers ( the 15 in the 315) . In this case the 15 means 15 metric ton. If the machine was a 320 it would be 20 metric ton and 325 would be 25 metric ton and so on. Most other brands of excavators use the first 2 numbers in the model number. Like Deere's 160 you would use the first 2 numbers the 16 and that would mean 16 metric ton and the 200 Deere would be a 20 metric ton machine and so on!

How do you put a track back on a komatsu excavator?

This should work on most mid-size excavators:

Slacken off the track adjuster screw and push the idler back to a fully retracted position. If the track is worn you may be able to man-handle it back into position over the sprocket and idler and then readjust the track with grease.

If that is not possible, you might have to press out the master pin that holds the track together then wrap the track over the idler and press the pin back in.

The master pin has a dimple in the centre which helps identify it, these are very tight and special tooling is required to replace them easily.

What is thrust specific fuel consumption of turbo shaft?

There is no such thing as thrust specific fuel consumption of a turboshaft engine, as a turboshaft is designed to deliver mechanical power, not thrust. This mechanical power can be converted into electric power by a generator or converted into thrust by a propeller or rotor. Basically, a turboshaft uses jet technology but is an alternative to a piston engine.

While thrust specific fuel consumption doesn't exist for a turboshaft, "brake specific fuel consumption" does. It measures the rate of flow of fuel required for a certain amount of power. For example, a specific fuel consumption of 0.2 lbs/h/hp means that for every horsepower the turboshaft produces, it burns 0.2 lbs of fuel each hour.
