Your Komatsu mini excavator is a workhorse but it’s not invulnerable. Proper maintenance is key to its ability to consistently do its job in a trouble-free manner. All too often owners and operators forget about the vital role mini excavator sprockets play in the smooth operation of their mini and the result is their PC27MR winds up sidelined by a blown track that could have been prevented. Mini excavator sprockets transfer the power generated by the motor to the tracks by grabbing the track lugs and propelling the rig forward or backward. If the teeth on the sprocket have become old and jagged they’ll tear at the lugs and eventually cause the track to fail. But it doesn’t have to be so.
By inspecting the undercarriage of your Komatsu PC27MR on a regular basis you will be able to tell when your sprockets have had enough and replace worn ones with this Komatsu PC27MR sprocket. It’s the kind of maintenance that doesn’t get a lot of press but is vital to keeping your Komatsu mini excavator on the job instead of on the sidelines. It will also help protect your company’s margins and keep you in the black. And in today’s ultra-competitive atmosphere that’s more important than ever.
