Performing regular maintenance on your rubber tracks can significantly help increase the life of your tracks while reducing overall downtime. Daily maintenance tasks include visual inspections of the tracks and undercarriage while keeping an eye out for signs of cracks, tears, cuts, or excessive wear.
Tracks, rollers, and idlers should rotate smoothly under power. Sprockets should not have missing or overly worn/sharp teeth. You should also check fluid levels, their conditions, and hydraulic lines. The cab and canopy should be free from damage while the footrests and grab handles are secure.
Weekly maintenance requires checking filters, running hours, lights, battery condition, belts, and the exhaust system. Make sure to clean the glass at least once a week to ensure safety and proper visibility.
Below, you’ll find a rubber track maintenance checklist for daily, weekly, and long-term storage.
Here is the same downloadable checklist that you can save to your computer and print out for easy reference.
For long-term storage, move the machine under its own power for five minutes every other week. This helps keep the tracks flexible and prevents fluids from coagulating.
By taking the time to perform the above daily, weekly, and long-term maintenance tasks, you’ll help ensure the longevity of your rubber tracks while limiting costly downtime. If you have any questions about the maintenance of your rubber tracks or require a replacement, click below.
