Rubber Pad care

 Mount rubber pads onto all of the individual crawler shoe plates.

 The “normal use” of rubber pads is limited to paved roadways. Do not use them at a demolition site, rough terrain strewn with boulders or any other jagged objects, or on clay-like soil, or sandy terrain, terrain with moisture. Avoid prolonged travel upon soil.

 Rubber pads products will not be subject to any claim when they are not used correctly as defined above.

 Any soil with moisture, which accumulates on undercarriage parts such as link belt or sprockets, will damage the rubber pads when dried. When by necessity a crawler machine with rubber pads mounted, travels on any soil with moisture; clean up the undercarriage and remove all such mud and any accumulated soil from undercarriage parts. Use nozzled jet water for effective cleaning.

 Do not use rubber pads on steep inclines when raining or snowing, as the rubber tends to be slippery under such conditions and it is dangerous.

 Before loading a machine with rubber pads, onto a truck or any transport vehicles, ensure that the rubber pads are free of mud, snow or other debris.


  1. When fixing rubber pads onto the crawlers of used machines, remove mud and other debris from the surface of the crawler shoe plate.
  2. Place “Clip-On” type rubber pads upon crawler shoe plates by first hooking the attached L-shapedbracket onto the inner end of the crawler shoe plate, then close the other end with another bracket and screw in bolts. Place “Bolt-On” type rubber pads over the holes in the track shoe plates, then fasten with spring washers and dome nuts from the underside of the shoe plate.
  3. Use Impact Wrench for fastening bolts and nuts. Then tighten further with an offset wrench afterwards.
  4. Once the rubber pads have been securely attached to the crawler, move the machine forward slowly to check and refasten as necessary.
  5. As maintenance, check frequently for any loose bolts or nuts. Every 100 hours, refasten all rubber pads.
  6. Machines equipped with the rubber pads should be turned slowly.
  7. The rubber padscontact area with the road surface tends to decrease if the crawler linkage is loose. To prevent unbalanced wear of undercarriage parts and to prevent rubber pads bolts from loosening, keep the crawlers taut by using the track adjuster of the crawler vehicles.
