Regularly checking your undercarriage is an important part of the routine maintenance of your heavy machinery. Before starting any inspection, it’s a good idea to clean the undercarriage of dirt and debris so you can get a clear view of the undercarriage parts and components of your machine. Once your undercarriage is clean, you should check the track frame for any signs of cracks, bends, or other damage. Then, you should check the following for wear and damage: rubber tracks, rollers, sprockets, pins, and idlers. You should also inspect the track tension and ensure it is within the manufacturer’s recommended range.
