It’s not unusual to find a Komatsu PC25-1 mini excavator that was bought 25 years ago still plugging away on a jobsite somewhere. These versatile pieces of compact heavy equipment were and are engineered to last. The only part you’re certain to have to replace if you own your PC25-1 for a while are the rubber tracks; just don’t make the mistake of replacing them with discount tracks. Productivity, profitability and your company’s reputation for getting the job done will all take a hit if you do. Instead, make sure you always use Komatsu 300×52.5×84 aftermarket replacement tracks.
The process of engineering the 300×52.5×84 begins with the use of original equipment manufacturing standards so that there’s never any disconnect between the track and the mini excavator. It then encompasses the company’s multi-layer design that includes an outer band of splice-free steel cable for horizontal stability and inner layers of natural rubber for necessary flexibility. This combination of strength and flexibility make it the willow tree of aftermarket rubber tracks in that it will bend but not break regardless of terrain or conditions.
Don’t trust the life of your Komatsu PC25-1 mini excavator to discount rubber tracks. Get the track designed with the PC25-1 in mind: the Komatsu 300×52.5×84.
