When you think of your Komatsu PC20-7 mini excavator and what makes it tick you likely think about the motor and the tracks but may not give much thought to the sprockets that deliver the power the motor produces to those tracks. If the sprockets are old and their teeth are worn they can chew up your rubber tracks just as quickly as a pile of nasty demolition debris and with the same result: track failure. Therefore it’s important that you inspect your mini excavator sprockets on a regular basis and if you notice they’ve been compromised in any fashion, that you replace them with this Komatsu PC20-7 sprocket.
It’s harder than ever to turn a profit in the construction industry. The last thing you need is self- inflicted wounds like track failure initiated by worn out mini excavator sprockets. Don’t let that happen. Assign someone to inspect the undercarriage of your PC20-7 periodically to look for signs your tracks have had enough. Signs like jagged edges on the teeth or cuts in the lugs of the track. By keeping an eye on the state of your sprockets you’ll increase your ability to bring jobs in on time without the kind of back-breaking track failures that destroy margins.
