In rough terrain, your equipment’s undercarriage takes the most wear and tear. That’s why preventative maintenance is so important to get the most life out of the undercarriage and most uptime on the jobsite.
Michigan CAT provides repairs, maintenance, and support for undercarriage systems and the first step in that process is scheduled inspections. We recommend that everyone makes undercarriage service an ongoing priority and let us help get the most life out of those wear components.
Undercarriage Services at Michigan CAT
Regular undercarriage inspections help find potential problems before they become more serious. Items we’re looking for include:
- Irregular wear patterns that suggest a hidden problem
- Missing or loose parts
- Physical damage to the undercarriage, driveline or tracks
- Loose bearings, gears, or track linkages
Additionally, preventive maintenance also helps your undercarriage perform its best when working in the harshest jobsite environments. To decrease the stress on undercarriage components, we:
- Recommend and source the best shoe type for your application
- Ensure tracks are properly tensioned
- Prepare your undercarriage for rough conditions
Each machine and job are slightly different, especially underfoot conditions in territories across the state. Whether you’re operating in sand, clay, rock or topsoil, our knowledgeable team will consider multiple factors to determine the optimal service solution for your fleet.
