- Utilising Bradken's own high strength BKC400 material, the shoes are through hardened to give excellent wear resistance and uniform wear rates.
- The roller path area is supported by Bradken's patented "Pillar of Strength" to prevent crushing of the shoe in hard pits. Other areas of high wear and those subjected to significant impact strikes have been strengthened to provide greater structural integrity.
- The connecting pins are manufactured in-house from high quality, induction hardened 4340 grade steel. This material ensures a greater service life than the more commonly used 4140 grade steel.
- The Opti-Trak range of Crawler Shoes and undercarriage components are compatible with the existing OEM components and are backed by our extensive manufacturer's warranty.
The Crawler Systems business provides full componentry for the undercarriage of mining size excavators, including:
- Crawler Shoes
- Load Rollers
