When to replace your tracks?

The life of a track for machinery can vary depending on the conditions of use and storage of the track: the rubber can harden, dry out and develop cracks. These cracks can cause a great danger when using the machine. Tracks should be replaced after 1,200-2,000 hours. Watch out for the following signs of damage to the track.

  • 1: Cracks on the tracks: Cracks can occur if you regularly work on rough, rocky terrains or if the machine is operated aggressively. If you find cracks, the tracks need to be replaced.
  • 2: Tracks keep losing tension: Tracks tend to stretch over time. Check the tension once a week if you use the machine regularly. Do not tighten the track beyond the tightening instructions. Instead try to replace the track with a track from Manitou Group Parts.
  • 3: Worn sprocket(s): Similar to gears, the sprockets mesh with the track when you drive the equipment. If the sprocket is worn or the track is loose, it will cause them to interlock poorly. It can also cause the sprocket to skip over the lug. This can lead to the track derailing from the sprocket which can be very dangerous.
  • 4: Lugs are missing: Lugs can come out if the sprockets continuously slip against them or if they get damaged from debris.
  • 5: Worn tread: Your tracks have little to no traction when the track is almost flat and the tread depth is worn. This could affect the equipment’s safety and increase the chances of malfunction or damage the undercarriage because of slippage.
  • 6: Steel cord is visible: Your track(s) are close to snapping if you can see their steel cords. Exposing the cord means that the steel is susceptible to moisture, which could lead to rust and increase the chance of track failure.
  • 7: Dry rotted tracks: Exposure to heat, light and various factors on a job site can lead to stress marks and rotting rubber.
