Skid Steer Loader Undercarriage Replacement & Repair Parts

The skid steer loader is an excellent and versatile piece of equipment. However, it is as complex as it is practical, and that complexity results from a system of moving parts that make up the machine’s standout feature—the undercarriage. These slightly vary from manufacturer to manufacturer, but the basic concept of the machine stays the same. So first, we will look at a few of the components of skid steer loaders.

Every skid steer loader comes equipped with a cab. This enclosure is where the operator of the machine sits to access the controls of the vehicle. It is typically covered with steel beams that create a roll-over protection system. The operator can activate the bucket in the cab, which is the widely recognizable front large steel piece. Hydraulic arms allow the operator to lift and lower the bucket, picking up dirt, gravel, snow, or any other material.

Those aspects are universal across all skid steers. Where parts tend to vary is in how the machine moves. For example, some skid steers have wheels similar to a car—two of them on each side and axels that accompany them.

However, there is another more popular variety of skid steers called track loaders. Rubber tracks instead of wheels control these machines. They are advantageous in wet months when job sites are filled with mud. They can maintain their place atop soggy soil due to the tracks.

The main components of the undercarriage on this variety of skid loaders are sprockets, idlers, bottom rollers, and top rollers. The sprocket parts look like teethed wheels, and they hold the tracks in place. The idler also keeps the chain and track in its place while top rollers carry the tracks. Finally, bottom rollers ensure the machine maintains proper clearance height.

Bobcat Skid Steer Aftermarket Parts

The Bobcat skid steer leverages a unique undercarriage design that makes it ideal for harsh conditions like sandy or muddy soil. They utilize two direct-drive hydrostatic motors and have no-maintenance rollers. Typically, these machines need less maintenance than competitors’ products. However, they are still subject to the same wear and tear. We offer all aftermarket Bobcat skid steer parts at competitive prices for when you need to replace a piece of your crucial machine.

CAT Skid Steer Aftermarket Parts 

Caterpillar offers a unique design on its skid steers. Any of their nine-track loaders on the market come equipped with a suspension system that substantially curbs impact on the machine. As a result, operators will notice a smoother ride and greater load retention. The undercarriage is lighter than your average steel variety, and their machines typically boast better traction and floatation than competitors’ products. However, with all the proprietary design and tech utilized by CAT, more parts need to be replaced. We offer aftermarket pricing on all CAT skid steer parts.

Routine Maintenance for Your Skid Steer Undercarriage

Performing routine maintenance is the most dependable way to ensure your skid steer lasts its entire lifespan. However, there are a few key things to keep in mind when doing this. First, your operators must inspect the skid steer for at least a half-hour per week, ensuring that everything is in working order. Of the previously mentioned undercarriage parts, the sprockets are the most prone to wear and tear. First, you must check to make sure that the sprocket teeth are round. Once they begin to degrade, they will become hooked or pointed. If yours are in this condition, it’s time for a replacement.

You will also want to inspect the 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 and them to seize in the process. If the rollers or idlers start to break down, you can release the tension, which will sometimes help the parts. Along with the undercarriage, you need to perform routine maintenance on the track if your machine utilizes them. For example, operators can adjust track tension and use a grease gun to lubricate it.

Skid steer loaders are durable pieces of machinery. The average lifespan for one is 5,000 hours of working time. Whether yours hangs in there for that long can depend on several factors:

  • If the equipment is in new or used condition
  • How much you are using the machine
  • The kind of work you’re using the skid steer for
  • The level of difficulty of the work you’re using it for
  • How well you maintain your machine

 

Other Types of Heavy Equipment

While skid steers are notable for their usage of undercarriages, they are not the only heavy equipment that utilizes them. Excavators, cranes, bulldozers, drilling rigs, and other pieces of heavy equipment also have undercarriages. These, like skid loaders, contain wear parts and are prone to needing replacement. We also carry aftermarket undercarriage parts for other types of heavy equipment and can get your investment repaired, ready to get back on the job. Regardless of the type of heavy equipment you are using on your job site, DMC Wear Parts has the parts you need.
