Undercarriage Springs & Recoils

Undercarriage recoil springs are critical to the proper function of crawler-type heavy equipment. The recoil springs serve as shock absorbers to protect the track and idler system from impact, excessive weight, and premature wear in order to extend the life of the undercarriage. The undercarriage makes up most of the repair investment put into heavy machinery, so it is crucial to extend the wear life with quality support parts, like recoil springs and track adjuster assemblies. These parts are critical to a machine’s proper performance and safety. To maintain your equipment, you must also understand the equipment’s inner workings and the importance of each part. It is vital to learn how to preserve these parts, how they function in the undercarriage of your machine, and the best replacement parts for when things break.

Undercarriage Spring Recoil Parts Inventory

If your springs, recoils, or track assemblies are not properly maintained it can cause significant issues for the operation of your machine and the wear life of the entire undercarriage. DMC Wear Parts carries a wide range of undercarriage springs and recoil parts for all popular makes and models of heavy equipment. There are many sizes and types of springs that are used across the different equipment models, manufacturers, and types of machinery.

Spring Recoil

  • Spring recoils act as buffers to protect other undercarriage parts against shock.

Track Adjuster Springs

  • Track adjusters and recoil allow the machine to adjust the track tension in reaction to the terrain automatically. As the front of the machinery faces resistance, the idler will move back and compress the springs, adjusting the pressure in the track.

Importance of Recoil Springs in Heavy Equipment

Recoil springs operate as shock absorbers, protecting the machine from heavy impact and overload. With a higher tolerance for impact and overload due to these recoil springs, the machine’s track and idler will last longer. These parts are essential for maintaining proper track tension, allowing the machine to maneuver through rugged terrain. Maintaining your recoil springs can ensure the machine performs optimally in any situation.

Track Adjusters & Springs Prevent Wear on Undercarriages

It is vital to prevent wear and tear on your machine’s undercarriage if you want your machine to last through its estimated lifespan. The undercarriage includes many other connected parts, including:

Track Rollers & Idlers

  • Track rollers reinforce the machine’s crawler/track movement against heavy loads and protect against shock. Idlers drive the belt system of the tracks by connecting each rotation from one section to another. Carrier rollers ensure the connection between the carrier roller chain and the rest of the machine to ensure the stability of heavy loads and smooth out the ride.

Equalizer Bars

  • Equalizer bars connect the track frames and act as the suspension for the vehicle.

Sprockets & Link Assemblies

  • Sprockets protrude from the wheels’ rims to guide the chains that move the track. Link assemblies are connected to the sprockets and aid in supporting the vehicle’s weight.

Bogies & Bogie Assemblies

  • Bogies are load-bearing frameworks that carry the vehicle’s movement components.
