We’re entering the dog days of summer, and if you want to make sure your equipment can handle the heat, there are few maintenance items you need to address.
According to the good folks at Takeuchi
, airflow is critical for keeping a machine productive in the heat. With all the dust flying around on the job site, filters become plugged more frequent which prevents proper circulation. They also say keeping your machines clean, greased and maintaining proper fluid levels is important. And, on extremely hot days, you should let your machine idle for a bit before shutting down.

Stay cool out there.
There are some things you should know about operating a compact track loader. According to Operation Efficiency: Pro Tips for Operating a Compact Track Loader by Compact Equipment, you might be prematurely wearing out your tracks and undercarriage. These are the main takeaways:
- Don’t spin in circles on concrete like you can with a skid steer- it eats up your tracks
- Use traction to fill your bucket, not ramming motions like with a skid steer which can wear on the tracks as well
- Keep your pressure on your undercarriage vertical whenever possible by avoiding riding sideways across slopes, etc. to extend the life of your undercarriage parts
- Clean your undercarriage and tracks after every use to prevent buildup
If you need to replace your rubber tracks or undercarriage parts, give us a call at and our experts help you decide between Bridgestone, Camso, or MWE rubber tracks as well as our extensive inventory of undercarriage parts.
