The paper discusses two original systems to automatically eliminate negative behaviours in mobile construction equipment with 4WD.For example in an articulated frame steer machine one of the devices allows for over 2 fold decrease of energy consumption by steering gear. The devices have been designed on the basis of both theoretical analysis and the results of experimental in situ studies on these problems.
