It’s happened more than a few times that operators of a mini excavator have replaced a blown track thinking the failure was due to encountering hazardous debris, when in fact it was a failure driven from within the excavator’s undercarriage. Mini excavator sprockets are often to blame for these failures because as they age their teeth become jagged and cause damage to the track when they grab it to propel the rig forward. It’s important that you make checking the sprockets part of your regular mini excavator inspection and that if you see the sprockets are compromised that you replace them ASAP with this Komatsu PC10-5 sprocket.
The construction business is not for the meek or the ill-prepared. Competition is tougher than at any time in the past and margins these days are sometimes razor thin. You need to show up on the job each and every time ready to put in a full day’s work. If your old mini excavator sprockets are busy shredding your rubber tracks from within you’re going to have a failure on your hands that didn’t have to happen. Prevent this unhappy occurrence by checking your sprockets on a regular basis. And keep your Komatsu PC10-5 up and running like it ought to be.
