The construction business is ultra-competitive and you need to make sure all your equipment, including your Bobcat mini excavator, is always well-maintained and ready to perform. While everyone’s aware of job site hazards that can result in track failure some owners and operators aren’t fully aware that another danger to their tracks lies in the undercarriage of their 334: the mini excavator sprockets. The job of the sprocket is to grab the track and propel the excavator forward. Most of the time it does that job admirably but if the sprockets are getting old their teeth can become sharp or jagged and cause as much damage to the track as anything you’d encounter on the job site.
If your mini excavator sprockets are getting long in the tooth it’s time to replace them with this aftermarket Bobcat 334 sprocket before you wind up fielding a call from the job site that your tracks have shredded for reasons unknown. In order to prevent things from getting to that point make sure you inspect your mini excavator sprockets periodically to ensure they’re in good shape. It’s a simple process that can save you a lot of headaches in the long run. If you find the sprocket’s teeth are showing signs of age install this aftermarket Bobcat 334 sprocket and rest easy.
