Cat Abrasion Undercarriage

 

 

Cat® Abrasion™: An Inside Job

Our engineers spent thousands of hours talking to undercarriage users and examining performance in high-abrasion, low-to-medium-impact applications. They saw firsthand where you’d gain the most from undercarriage improvements. The design innovations of Cat® Abrasion™ are derived from these real-world applications and deliver real results for your operation.

First-to-market cartridge innovations

We redesigned Cat Abrasion’s sealed, cartridge-style joints so they perform better and last longer than their predecessor, SystemOne™. The cartridge may look the same on the outside, but the coating and seals inside are different — and better — to extend life and lower your costs.
