DESIGNED FOR YOUR APPLICATION

Caterpillar engineers understand how application demands wear undercarriage components. They design undercarriage as a system. Each one is built to take on specific conditions such as sand, gravel, mud and clay.

3 FACTORS TO CONSIDER WHEN SELECTING THE RIGHT CUSTOM OR STANDARD UNDERCARRIAGE:

Caterpillar engineers have developed computerized analysis systems to determine the correct undercarriage for your application. This helps yield low operating costs, long service life, and great value.

The components you choose will depend on three main factors:
 

Machine weight

The weight of a machine is very important in determining undercarriage size. However, the size of undercarriage components used on a crawler tractor is not necessarily the same size that should be used on a different type of machine of similar size and weight.

 

 

 ­

Machine application

Most OEM applications are slow speed (3.5 mph or less) and would be best served by using hydraulic excavator undercarriage arrangements. Generally applications above 3.5 mph are best served with crawler tractor arrangements.

 

 

 ­

undercarriage life

Undercarriage life is determined, in part, by the operating environment, normal and maximum operating speeds, and job function. Regardless of the machine’s function, proper design and service can extend the life of the undercarriage.

Undercarriages are available in class sizes based on Cat excavator models 303.5, 305, 307, 312, 315, 320, 325, 330, 345, 365, and 385. Options include different track shoe width and track shoe configurations such as double or triple grouser.
