How to Extend the Life of Your Undercarriage

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:

  1. Clean mud dirt and rock out of your undercarriage after each workday
  2. Regularly inspect undercarriage parts for excessive wear and damaged components
  3. Operate with some extra caution – sharp turns and harsh surface applications take a toll on undercarriage and tracks as well
  4. Maintain proper track tension
  5. Use tracks that match your application by carefully selecting your track width and tread pattern
  6. Adhere to proper digging procedures

Keeping your undercarriage in good condition will save you money. Talk to a professional if you have questions regarding the wear on your tracks or undercarriage. They can help you make the best decision to save you money and take care of your machine. Call the experts at MWE at 1-877-336-6825.

Learn How to Reduce Fuel Costs from Excessive Idling

According to a new white paper from Caterpillar published on, idle time for equipment is costing owners thousands of dollars. They report that machines idle for 20% of time while running costs over $1,500 per year in fuel alone.

Additional effects include reduced component life, accelerated wear of Tier 4 technologies, decreased warranty hours, and hurts your machine’s resale value.

To reduce idle time, it is recommended that you:

  • Minimize idle time at shut off
  • Turn off machines waiting more than 5 minutes
  • Restrict morning warm-ups to 3-5 minutes
  • Take advantage of the automatic shutoff feature
