There are things you can’t prevent like extreme weather that forces the closure of a job site and then there are things that have a negative effect on your bottom line that is completely avoidable; like sprocket failure. The mini excavator sprockets on your Bobcat 328 don’t require a lot of a maintenance but it’s crucial that you check up on them from time to time to make sure they aren’t wearing down. In a nutshell, if you see the teeth on your mini excavator sprockets have become jagged or sharp it’s time to replace them with this aftermarket Bobcat 328 sprocket in order to prevent the sharp teeth from damaging the track.
The sprocket is a key undercarriage component of your mini excavator. It grabs the lugs on the inside of the track and propels them forward. When the sprocket is in the good working order you should experience nice smooth propulsion across the terrain. If your sprockets are wearing down, however, you may experience skipping or lurching or you may sense no problems at all until the track shreds and your mini excavator is sidelined. Don’t let that happen to you. Inspect your sprockets regularly and, if need be, replace them with this aftermarket Bobcat 328 sprocket. Your company’s bottom line will thank you.
