- Proper Track Tension
Adhere and maintain the proper track tension when operating the equipment. A tip for you, run the tracks slightly looser when working in soft-muddy conditions.
- Sensitive Surfaces? Choose Rubber Tracks
Rubber tracks offer good flotation that allows the equipment to travel across and work on soft ground conditions with minimum ground disturbance on finished surfaces (concrete, grass, asphalt).
- Adhere to Proper Procedures
Every equipment has its own proper procedures in the manufacturer’s Operation and Maintenance Manual. Following the manual will minimize excessive wear and track degradation.
