Quickly adjust track tension in just 4 easy steps

The track is widely used in various construction machinery and equipment. The track is too loose or too tight, which will affect the normal walking of the equipment. Therefore, it is necessary to adjust the tension of the track regularly to ensure the longer service life of the equipment.

Step 1: Lift the device. Use the jack to lift the side of the loader and place the appropriate jacks on the front and back of the machine.

Step 2: Use the wrench to open the side cover and place it on one side as shown.

Step 3: Add or remove grease. Use a grease gun to add grease to tighten the track and remove grease to loosen the track.

Step 4: Measure the distance from the track to the roller as shown in the figure, about 1 inch is the best distance. Repeat the above operation on the other side.

Quickly adjust track tension in just 4 easy steps

Certainly! Here’s a quick guide to adjusting track tension on an excavator in four easy steps:

Locate the Track Adjuster:

Identify the track adjuster, which is usually located on the rear portion of the undercarriage.
Loosen the Lock Nut:

Use a wrench to loosen the lock nut on the track adjuster. This nut is typically located at the end of the adjuster cylinder.
Adjust the Track Tension:

Turn the track adjuster cylinder to adjust the tension.
To tighten the track, turn the cylinder clockwise. To loosen the track, turn it counterclockwise.
Refer to your equipment’s manual for the recommended tension specifications.
Tighten the Lock Nut:

Once you’ve achieved the desired track tension, use the wrench to tighten the lock nut securely. This helps to prevent the adjuster from moving.
Remember to follow the specific guidelines provided in your equipment’s manual, as the adjustment process might vary slightly depending on the make and model of the excavator. Regularly check and adjust track tension to ensure optimal performance and prevent premature wear on the undercarriage components.
