Yes, this can be done on most small excavator models. Some machines require the rollers, sprockets, or idlers to be changed as well, so give us a call with the make and model of your machine, and our friendly staff can advise.

The most common cause of detracking is incorrect track tension. This can be due to lack of attention, stretched or worn rubber track, or lack of maintenance. It could also be caused by the incorrect track being fitted to your machine. Get in touch with our team if you have any questions about detracking, we have the knowledge and support to help!

Every machine has their own standard track size, it is important to know the make, model, and ‘dash’ before that’s all we need and our friendly staff can advise correct track. Sometimes the tracks have the size stamped on the bottom of the track. Numbers are a reference to the Size for example 230x48x70 230 is width, 48 is pitch and 70 is number of links.

It is important to verify and maintain proper track tension as directed by the machine manufacturer, and this is one of the simplest ways to ensure you get the full life out of your track. Over or under tensioning of a track will cause permanent damage, leading to costly downtime and early track replacement. Loose tracks run the risk of de-tracking, while too tight of a tension magnifies the load and increases wear on the entire undercarriage system. When fitting a new rubber track, the tension must be adjusted to allow a gap from the centre bottom roller to the position on the track where the roller runs – see the diagram below.

This gap varies for different machine sizes as follows:

MACHINE SIZE            GAP DIMENSION A

0.75 – 1.5 Tonne        10mm

1.5 – 3.0 Tonne          15mm

3.0 – 6.0 Tonne         20mm

6.0 – 7.5 Tonne         25mm

7.5 – 10 Tonne           30mm

Run the track for 10 revolutions in each direction whilst up in the air then check tension again (as the track will likely adjust during the first few rotations). Run the track normally for 1 hour then check the tension again. After 3 days of operation adjust the tension again and thereafter check it once a week.

  2. Level and lower the bucket to the ground.
  3. Raise the front of the machine off the ground approximately 8″ utilizing bucket down pressure.
