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!
