Tracked Equipment Undercarriage Parts
To keep your machinery functioning at its peak, you need to understand the components that make up your machine. DMC Wear Parts offers customers a wide selection of undercarriage parts to ensure that your equipment works as well for you today as it did on day one. Maintenance is critical to keep your track functioning properly. Performing routine maintenance is the most dependable way to ensure your equipment tracks last.
Routine Inspection of Your Machine’s Undercarriage
Another essential part of maintaining your equipment is performing routine maintenance on the undercarriage. You will want to inspect the undercarriage’s idlers and rollers to see if they are sealed and lubricated. Worn rollers and idlers begin to leak around the seals, which can cause bearing failure, forcing them to seize.
Adjusting Track Tension
Adjusting track tension is an essential part of your maintenance program. The tracks carry the machine’s weight and take much of the daily wear and tear. If your track is loose, it can result in larger damage and more costly repairs for the equipment. While over-tightening can cause undue stress on the tracks, stretching tracks too thin can also cause issues. To properly fit your equipment’s track for your job site, you will want to make adjustments to match the machine and conditions.
