The sprocket plays a key role in propelling your Komatsu mini excavator across the terrain. It transfers energy from the motor to the tracks by grabbing the lugs and moving them forward or backward. But mini excavator sprockets get old like everything else and when they do their teeth can become jagged and tear into the track lugs causing damage that eventually leads to track failure. This type of incident can be avoided by inspecting your PC15-2 undercarriage on a regular basis and taking note of the sprocket’s condition. If you see evidence that the sprocket is compromised in some way it’s important to replace it as soon as possible with this Komatsu PC15-2 sprocket.
Making a profit in the construction business these days takes knowledge, determination, the right people and the right equipment. If your mini excavator is sidelined by a blown track it takes a bite out of your margins and can also damage your company’s reputation. It hurts even worse if you know that the blown track was preventable. Don’t let your Komatsu PC15-2 fall victim to damage from old mini excavator sprockets. Replace old ones with this Komatsu PC15-2 sprocket and stay on track to profitability.
