Worn grousers can prevent your undercarriage is functioning at its optimal capacity.
In this guide, we will break down the process of measuring grouser height into simple steps that anyone can follow.
Whether you’re a seasoned construction professional or just starting out in the industry, you’ll have no trouble using this guide to measure your excavator’s grouser height like a pro.
Clean the surface of the pad between the cleaned grousers as well to ensure you get an accurate measurement.
Place a ruler over the top of the two grousers.
It’s important the ruler is over the middle of the track shoe and not towards the end to ensure you don’t measure any additional wear that occurs at the ends.
Take another ruler, or preferably a vernier and measure the distance from the ruler to the base of the pad.
This measurement will allow you to establish the wear percentage of the track shoe and more importantly the grouser bars.
It is important to remember that maintaining your excavator’s undercarriage is crucial to its longevity and efficiency. By inspecting it regularly you can identify any signs of wear and tear and take necessary action to prevent further damage.
