As our customers know, heavy equipment is no small investment. Big machines usually come at an even bigger capital investment, and the best way to protect these investments is through proper maintenance and quality parts. A vitally important area in any machine is its undercarriage, which can account for up to 20% of the purchase price and 50% of the maintenance cost of the entire unit.
Highland Tractor Parts Inc has been supplying undercarriage parts since its formation. We understand that it is a high wear area where quality should never be sacrificed. Cheap undercarriage parts will not only fail faster, but will also have long lasting effects on a machine’s overall life. The sprocket, for example, is responsible for hooking onto and pulling the track link, while the idler and adjuster act as one in keeping proper alignment and tension. Bottom and top rollers both function as a carrier and mover of the chain, and track guards act as reinforcement and protection of the whole group. Sacrificing quality in any of these components will lead to unnecessary stress on your equipment, leading to immediate deterioration and rising maintenance costs.
