Conditions Affecting Undercarriage Wear and Tear

When you consider that more than half of your annual excavator or dozer operating costs relate to your machine’s undercarriage, understanding the conditions that lead to undercarriage wear and tear becomes crucial. Paying close attention to these factors can make all the difference in your machine’s performance and longevity.

Some of the key elements that directly influence your machine’s life span include:

  • Application: Jobs requiring more torque place your undercarriage under more stress.
  • Terrain: Slopes, dips and awkward angles inflict tremendous resistance force on your undercarriage, causing substantial wear.
  • Underfoot: Lifted debris from various surfaces, including rocks and soft sand, leads to abrasive part wear.
  • Operation: Working forcefully, aggressively and in contradiction to operation guidelines can result in significant undercarriage problems.
