Correctly managing the undercarriage of your excavators and crawler dozers is critical to their service life and productivity. Running to destruction is not always the best approach when it comes to your undercarriage management.
Cost cutting options, such as a simple pin and bushing turn, can help prolong the life of your system and a wet pin and bushing turn will prolong the sealability and allow you to get full link life.
Based on your machine’s application and the amount and type of wear, Brandeis Machinery can develop an appropriate undercarriage management program to help you schedule track maintenance and avoid unnecessary undercarriage repair costs.
Track Management System Program (TMS)
Brandeis scheduled regular undercarriage inspections through our Track Management System (TMS) program. Using this system ensures timely replacement and repair of worn components. This will help extend the life of the undercarriage, increase productivity, reduce downtime, and reduce the machine’s operating cost per hour.
Inspections and Recommendations
Fast, easy inspections can be done through a Brandeis Product Support Representative. Our PSRs will take all required measurements and accurately determine wear. Based on this data and other critical factors, your PSR will make the appropriate recommendations to assure maximum utilization of your undercarriage components.
It’s not enough to just measure undercarriage wear. Brandeis’ Track Management system allows us to provide a program that manages your system. We are able to schedule thorough inspections and accurately determine the wear of parts so that when applicable, you can extend your undercarriage life. Benefits of our program include:
- Optimize machine’s cost per hour
- Produce and maintain undercarriage data for analysis
- Provide easy to read reports and graphs for review
