Heavy equipment must be able to operate in the most demanding conditions. In rough terrain, a piece of equipment’s undercarriage is the component that bears the most wear and tear. It’s for this reason that regular undercarriage service is a key part of preventive maintenance.
MacAllister Machinery provides repairs, maintenance and support for equipment by Cat® and other brands. We encourage everyone we work with to make undercarriage service an ongoing priority.
What’s Involved In Our Undercarriage Services
Preventive maintenance is an essential part of undercarriage service. Regular inspections are an opportunity to spot potential problems before they become more serious. Some things a MacAllister Machinery technician will look for include:
- Loose or missing parts
- Physical damage to the undercarriage, wheels/tracks or driveline
- Abnormal wear patterns that indicate a hidden problem
- Loose bearings, gears or track linkages
In addition to identifying damage, preventive maintenance also helps your undercarriage perform its best on a day-to-day basis. To reduce stress on undercarriage components, we can:
- Ensure tracks are properly tensioned
- Recommend and source the best shoe type for your application
- Prepare your undercarriage for rough conditions
Every machine is different — a knowledgeable technician will consider multiple factors to determine the optimal service solution for your fleet.
What Are the Benefits?
Undercarriage service can account for up to 50% of a fleet’s repair costs. By investing in regular maintenance from MacAllister Machinery, you can:
