Undercarriage parts are an important aspect of your compact equipment- and taking care of your sprockets, rollers, and idlers can save you money by increasing the lifespan of your tracks. Recently, Bobcat published an article on best practices for extending the life of your undercarriage.
Bobcat lists six tips:
Clean mud dirt and rock out of your undercarriage after each workday
Regularly inspect undercarriage parts for excessive wear and damaged components
Operate with some extra caution – sharp turns and harsh surface applications take a toll on undercarriage and tracks as well
Maintain proper track tension
Use tracks that match your application by carefully selecting your track width and tread pattern
Adhere to proper digging procedures
