To DIY a track replacement on your mini excavator, you'll need two people: one to remove and replace the track while the other person runs the machine.
Changing the track on a skid steer or compact track loader does not require another machine to get it off the ground. The heavy equipment itself can do it!
If the grease nipple fails it may be due to contaminants or separation. Grease helps provide tension to the tracks that allow heavy machines to operate.
When the rubber track on a compact track loader needs to be replaced, you'll need these tools to remove the old track and install a new one.
The tension will need to be adjusted on a compact track loader after placing on new tracks. We give you the steps to perform this process.
This step-by-step guide will walk you through adjusting the track tension on mini excavators, like a John Deere 35G, when you replace the rubber tracks.
