Does your business rely on walk-behind Bobcat equipment like mini-track loaders or excavators? Many compact ‘walk-behind’ models rely on an undercarriage and rubber tracks to provide stability and maneuverability on various surfaces and subsoils.

The Importance of Rubber Track Maintenance for Bobcat Equipment
Tracks are the foundation of an undercarriage system because they support the equipment's weight as it traverses the ground and ensures you have reliable traction on challenging terrain. A track contains numerous parts and components like pins, bushings, and links that must work together seamlessly to keep the equipment rolling.
To minimize downtime, rubber tracks should be regularly inspected for signs of wear, and proactively serviced or replaced to minimize downtime for your fleet.
How Often Should You Replace Rubber Tracks?
It depends. Multiple factors like operating conditions, number of operating hours, or a simple visual inspection can indicate when it's time to consider replacing rubber tracks on an undercarriage. You should upgrade the tracks if the underlying steel cord is showing, or the guide rail is deteriorating; always refer to manufacturer recommendations. A track inspection should be part of your regular maintenance inspection and operator safety inspection process.
