Excavator track maintenance and maintenance


LuYu Machinery reminds you that when we buy an excavator, we should learn to understand the various key parts of the excavator. This will help us to operate the excavator better. The crawler is very important for the crawler excavator, which plays the role of supporting and moving the machine. Able to withstand heavy loads and distribute the weight of the machine. When the track is damaged or broken, the excavator's ability to move will be limited. Damaged tracks can result in non-functioning or slow travel, which can affect construction progress and efficiency.

Track in the process of use will be affected by the ground friction and load, gradually wear and fatigue. Long time use and heavy load work may lead to wear of the track chain, track plate and track teeth, and even cracks and fractures. If the track is exposed to a wet or corrosive environment, such as rain, mud, or chemicals, the metal components on the track may rust and corrode. This corrosion can weaken the structural strength of the track, leading to breakage or damage. Improper use and operation may cause damage to the track. This includes operating on inappropriate surfaces, exceeding the load capacity of the track, turning sharply or fast, or operating on uneven terrain. Irregular maintenance and maintenance may result in damage to the track. For example, lack of proper lubrication and fastening, failure to replace worn track components in a timely manner, or failure to clean debris and accumulation on the track. The track may encounter external objects and obstacles during its work. Such as rocks, concrete blocks, metal fragments, etc. These objects can jam the track link or the track plate, causing the track to break or damage.

In order to avoid damage to the track, we should follow these measures and precautions from daily construction operations.

1. Choose the appropriate work site: Give priority to flat and stable ground for operation, and avoid operating on sharp, uneven or potentially dangerous terrain. Ensure that the work area is free of obstacles and large objects to reduce the risk of the track colliding with external objects.

2. Avoid overload: Understand the load capacity of the excavator track, operate and transport according to the manufacturer's recommendations, and avoid exceeding the load limit of the track to prevent excessive wear or fracture of the track chain and track plate.

3. Correct driving and operation: be familiar with the control system and operation mode of the excavator, use smooth acceleration and deceleration skills, and avoid sharp turning or fast turning. Smooth operation and driving of the excavator, reducing the impact and stress on the track.

4. Regular maintenance and maintenance: Check and maintain the track system regularly according to the manufacturer's recommendations. Ensure proper lubrication, secure parts are in good condition, and replace worn track links, track plates, and track teeth in a timely manner. Clean track debris and accumulation, keep track clean.

5. Pay attention to the working environment: When operating in a humid or corrosive environment, take appropriate protective measures, such as anti-rust coating, protective cover, etc., to reduce the corrosion and corrosion of the track.

6. Training and attention to safety: Ensure that the excavator operator is fully trained and understands the safety requirements and operating guidelines in the operator manual. Follow safety procedures and practices to ensure the safety of operators and those around them.

7. Monitoring and timely repair: Regularly check the wear and condition of the track, as well as any abnormal signs. If the track is found to be cracked, broken or otherwise damaged, stop using it immediately and repair and replace it as necessary.

By following these measures and precautions, you can minimize the risk of damage to the track and extend its service life. In the meantime. Regular maintenance and inspection of the track system, timely detection and repair of potential problems, can improve the performance and safety of the excavator.

When we find that the track is damaged, the following are the general steps to repair the track.

1. Stop use and safety measures: If the track is damaged, immediately stop using the excavator and take appropriate safety measures to ensure the safety of the operator and people around.

2. Inspect and assess the extent of damage: Carefully inspect the damage of the track to determine whether there are broken links, broken track plates or other parts damaged. Assess the extent and extent of the damage to determine the repair measures required.

3. Remove damaged parts: If a small part of the track is damaged, you can choose to remove the part for repair. Remove damaged links, track plates, or other related parts using appropriate tools and equipment.

4. Replace damaged parts: Purchase appropriate replacement parts as needed. Be sure to select original or suitable replacement parts that are compatible with the excavator model and track system. Install and adjust correctly according to manufacturer's instructions and operating manual. Tighten bolts and connectors to ensure the stability and safety of the track system.

5. Adjust and tighten: After replacing the damaged parts, ensure that the track chain, track plate, and other related parts are correctly installed and adjusted. Tighten bolts and connectors to ensure the stability and safety of the track system.

6. Lubrication and maintenance: After repair, perform proper lubrication and maintenance. Use appropriate lubricants and methods to ensure smooth operation and durability of track links and other moving parts.

7. Test and verification: After the repair is completed, test and verification are carried out. Start the excavator and perform some simple operations and tests to ensure the normal operation of the track system without abnormal noise or other problems.

As a professional construction machinery manufacturer, Lu Yu Machinery has comprehensively upgraded the track raw materials of crawler excavators, using high-quality rubber materials that are more wear-resistant, but daily maintenance is essential, which can make the service life of the crawler longer and reduce operating costs.
