The job of the mini excavator idler is simple but crucial: to help guide the track through its paces and to provide tension so that the track can operate at maximum efficiency. If the idler wheel is somehow damaged or compromised the track can begin to flop around and will become susceptible to all manner of damage from aggressive debris. The track may also de-track which can seriously endanger both the mini excavator and the operator and lead to failure. Before you allow your Bobcat 331 to leave the yard for a new job you should have someone do a thorough undercarriage inspection and if any problems are detected with the mini excavator idler it should be replaced promptly with this aftermarket Bobcat 331 font idler.
With the construction industry as competitive as it is today you can’t afford the downtime that comes with track failure. If that track failure was preventable it’s even worse. Make sure you have someone inspect the undercarriage of your 331 regularly to see if the front idler wheel has been damaged or is malfunctioning in any way. If it is, don’t hesitate to have it replaced ASAP with this aftermarket Bobcat 331 front idler. Your company’s reputation and bottom line will be better off for it.
