Design Differences

  • Provides consistent, low wear rates throughout the life of the crawler shoes.
  • Bradken's wide roll path provides better roller support and reduces metal flow.
  • The pin lugs are strengthened and widened for greater strength and reduced pitch extension.
  • The engineered alloy used has excellent impact strength throughout the entire crawler shoe, reducing the chances of failure in the worn condition.
  • The optimised core design minimises stress in service and maximises heat treatment and mechanical properties.
