This paper presents the directions for load and safety appreciation of carrying structures component elements and their application to a particular object respectively carrying structure of rotating excavator working wheel. Load and safety of the carrying structure and its component elements are estimated based on the calculation of load and safety factors. The estimated load is based on the calculated value of load factors, while the safety by comparison of the calculated safety factors to the values of recommended minimum safety factors obtained by examinations of such structures in practice. With these indicators we have a situation where we are providing the static strength control of the analyzed elements. The paper presents numerical values of the load and safety coefficients for the excavator SRs-630 working in the coalmine "Suvodol" Bitola, for all characteristic working regimes in its exploitation lifetime. The numerical values of load and safety coefficients relate to clamps of the working wheel carrying structure and the most loaded joint of this structure.
