|Undercarriage Replacement Parts Dealer
The moving components of the Undercarriage, such as Track Chains, Sprockets, Idlers, Track Shoes, Pads and Rollers are wear-items, meaning they are expected to wear down over time while in the process of doing their job. The bottom rollers carry the weight of the machine while it is traveling and digging. The front idler holds the track chain in proper alignment while the machine is traveling and acts as a shock absorber and chain tensioner. The upper rollers carry the chain in alignment and are high enough to allow debris to fall from the chain, so it is kept relatively clean. The drive sprocket engages the track chain and propels the machine by pulling the chain over the sprocket.Get more news about Undercarriage Parts,you can vist our website!
The Undercarriage can represent a significant portion of the operating costs for any type of heavy equipment machinery. Proper component maintenance will help extend its life and lower operating costs by keeping your equipment on the jobsite moving material and keeping you on schedule, rather than in the shop for repairs. With dozens of manufacturers, sizes and models, it is vital for today's construction equipment businesses to know exactly where to go when they need new or replacement parts. In business since 1953, HeavyQuip is known throughout the industry for its expertise, outstanding service and competitive pricing.
Every construction company will eventually need heavy equipment replacement parts. Make sure the ones you buy are from a reputable aftermarket dealer with decades of experience in the industry. Contrary to what modern advertising would have us believe, brand-name products do not have some special, magical element to them that makes them so much better than aftermarket products. In most cases, aftermarket parts are just as good, with equivalent performance to brand-name items, and since they typically cost less, can save you money.
HeavyQuip was started way back in 1953 as a family-owned retailer with just a single store.

The longer a piece of machinery is down for the count, the more money flows down the drain. Proper maintenance starts with a daily inspection or as soon as the machine returns from a rigorous day. Use a track spade to clean the dirt from the top rollers and around the sprockets and idlers. The cleaning serves two purposes: to remove material that might freeze or dry overnight and cause components to be stuck in the first movement the next day, and to allow a visual inspection for loose, worn or missing components.
Construction is a back-breaking business, and it demands a lot from both workers and equipment. Heavy machinery, such as Excavators, Dozers, Loaders, Asphalt Pavers, Skid Steers, Compact Track Loaders and Tractors, spend the better part of each day in rough, dangerous conditions, performing seemingly impossible tasks that would cause lesser machinery to buckle. It is not surprising, then, that heavy equipment is often in need of repair or new parts.
Proper maintenance starts with a daily inspection or as soon as the machine returns from a rigorous day. Use a spade to clean the dirt from the top rollers and around the sprockets and idlers. The cleaning serves two purposes: to remove material that might freeze or dry overnight and cause components to be stuck in the first movement the next day, and to allow a visual inspection for loose, worn or missing components. A walk-around inspection of the Heavy Equipment should also be performed. Track tension should be noted. There should be some slack in the chain, but not too much. It’s best to consult the operator’s manual for proper specification. For example, if the chain is too tight it will wear all components at an excessive rate. If the track is too loose, it may come off while turning or on uneven ground.
In this walk-around inspection look for loose, damaged, or missing components including bottom rollers, track guides, top rollers and loose pads. While in the front of the machine, look down along the tracks to see if there is a section that is out of line. This could indicate a loose track pad or possibly a broken pin. Stand to the side and confirm all rollers are in place and appear to be in proper alignment. Check rollers, idlers and final drives for oil leakage. Often when a roller or idler leaks, the oil drops into the track chain where it is difficult to see, but it is more noticeable where it would run down the side of the component. Rollers and idlers can be re-sealed if the outer shell has significant life left, but usually if the leak has gone on too long, there will be internal damage. It's more cost-effective to replace the component.
