Product Description

To get the most from your CAT 279C you need to make sure all its component parts are in good working order. That’s just common sense. One part that sometimes gets overlooked when it comes to compact track loader maintenance, however, is the rear idler. The compact track loader idlers regulate tension in the tracks. Too much tension and other related components will suffer excessive wear and tear. Too little tension and you’re facing the prospect of de-tracking. As the idlers age however they can become loose and their surfaces rough and uneven. Eventually, they’ll cause enough damage to the track that the track will fail.

You can stave off this kind of profit-killing track failure by having someone inspect the undercarriage of your compact track loader on a regular basis. Some would argue that an annual inspection is enough but if you use your CAT 279C often you’ll want to inspect the compact track loader idlers every 3 to 6 months. If an inspection turns up damage to the rear idler it should be replaced ASAP with this aftermarket CAT 279C rear idler. The construction industry is not a forgiving one. Ensure your company’s continued good name by making sure your compact track loader idlers are always in good shape.
