Preventable breakdowns are the worst. The worst for your bottom line, the worst for your schedule the worst for your company’s reputation as a ‘can-do’ organization. Few preventable breakdowns take as many mini excavator owners and operators by surprise as those caused by old, worn out mini excavator sprockets. The sprockets transfer the power generated by the motor to the tracks by grabbing the lugs on the inside of the track and propelling it forward. But sprockets age like everything else and when they do their teeth get sharp and tear at the lugs. By inspecting the undercarriage of your mini excavator regularly you can spot this kind of age-related damage and replace your aging sprockets with this Komatsu PC27MR2 sprocket before the track fails.
To succeed in the construction business today you need to have all hands on deck at all times. You can’t afford to have important equipment sidelined by preventable failures. Make sure to have someone inspect the undercarriage of your Komatsu mini excavator regularly in order to stave off small problems before they become margin killers. If you notice that the teeth on your sprockets are worn down be sure to replace them ASAP with this Komatsu PC27MR2 sprocket.
