Buy Rubber Tracks. When fitting a new rubber track, the tension must be adjusted to allow a gap from the centre bottom roller to the position on the new track where the roller runs – see diagram. 95% of all damage occurs through wrong track tensioning.

Machine Size                    Gap Dimension A

0.7 5- 1.5 tonne                 10mm

1.5 – 3.0 tonne                   15mm

3.0 – 6.0 tonne                   20mm

6.0 – 7.5 tonne                   25mm


  • Run the track for 10 revolutions in each direction whilst up in the air, then re-tension as it will stretch.
  • Run the track normally for 1 hour then re-tension again.
  • After 3 days of operation adjust the tension again and check it once a week thereafter. And, voila!
