Track Loader Description
Once you have decided that your worksite terrain requires the use of continuous track your next step is to determine the attachments you will need; you may find you need more than one. Most track loaders do not lift much higher than the cab; be sure to check that your loader will lift your materials high enough to release them where you would like. The final consideration is the horsepower, be sure to rent or lease a higher horsepower loader if your material is heavy.
Features of track loaders
The continuous track band of treads makes track loaders ideal for use in soft or wet conditions like sand and mud. Soft terrain would be treacherous for a skid steer loader; track loader’s continuous track provide traction where skidding is not possible.
Track loaders are made to accommodate a large number of attachments; the mechanisms are created to allow the operator to change attachments easily. The following is a list of many common track loader attachments:
Blade, variety of shapes
How track loaders work
The two hydraulic arms are hinged behind the cab where the operator is seated; the arms lift beside the cab. This keeps the compact nature of track loaders, but requires extra attention to the safety of the operator. The cab is enclosed to protect the operator from danger as the arms lift by their sides and over their head. The operator controls the loader with joystick controls inside the cab; your KWIPPED network supplier can show you how to use these controls.
About track loaders
Track loaders are made to work in small or enclosed spaces. They have two hydraulic arms that lift a wide variety of attachments. They are most frequently used to dig and carry at construction sites. They have a rigid frame for strength and durability. They are similar to skid steer loaders; track loaders use continuous tracks instead of the fixed wheels on a skid steer loader.
