As an operator, you know that the excavator is only as good as the ground it’s working on.
That’s why choosing suitable rubber pads for your excavator can make all the difference.
You may have heard about clip-on rubber pads, but perhaps you’re not entirely convinced they’re the right choice for your excavator.
In this post, we’ll explore the benefits of clip-on rubber pads and why they may be the best solution for your excavator.
What Are Clip-On Rubber Pads?
Clip-on rubber pads are a type of excavator attachment designed to protect the ground and increase the machine’s stability.
These rubber pads attach to the steel tracks of the excavator and provide a cushioned surface that distributes the machine’s weight more evenly. This cushioning effect protects the ground from damage and reduces the impact of the excavator on the environment.
Clip-on pads are made from high-quality rubber and are designed to withstand the rigours of heavy-duty excavation work. They are easy to install and can be removed easily, making them a convenient and affordable solution for your excavator.
Benefits of Clip-On Rubber Pads
There are several benefits to using clip-on rubber pads for your excavator. Here are just a few:
1. Protects the ground
One of the primary benefits of clip-on rubber pads is that they protect the ground from damage. When excavators are used on sensitive surfaces like pavements or asphalt, they can cause significant damage. Clip-on rubber pads provide a cushioned surface that reduces the impact of the excavator on the ground, preventing damage and preserving the integrity of the surface.
2. Increases stability
Another benefit of clip-on rubber pads is that they increase the excavator’s stability. When excavators are working on uneven or sloping surfaces, they can become unstable and potentially dangerous. Clip-on rubber pads provide a more stable and secure footing for the machine, reducing the risk of accidents and improving safety on the job site.
3. Improves traction
Clip-on rubber pads also improve traction, essential for excavators working on slippery or wet surfaces. The rubber material of the pads provides a better grip on the ground, reducing the risk of slippage and improving the machine’s overall efficiency.
