Product Details

  • Specifically designed for mining class hydraulic excavators
  • Overall length: 9.2 meters
  • Overall height: 2.5 meters
  • Mass: 51T on each side.
  • The drive tumbler configuration features a dual roller path with 12 raised drive lugs and a bolted final drive interface.
  • Belt support includes seven load rollers and two return or carrier rollers, with a hydraulically tensioned front idler.
  • 42 crawler shoes per side, with two width options available: 1400mm and 1600mm.

Design Differences

  • The crawler shoe material used in Bradken's proprietary AOD refined “BKC-400” is through-hardened to typically 420 BHN
  • 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.

Bradken Crawler Shoes

Crawler shoes are an essential component of tracked machinery such as excavators, bulldozers, and loaders. They provide traction, support, and stability to the equipment, enabling it to operate on rough terrain.

Bradken Drive Sprockets

The Bradken Drive Sprockets are specifically designed to meet the challenging requirements of the mining industry. With induction-hardened roller paths and drive lug faces, these sprockets provide a consistently low wear rate throughout their life.

Bradken Front Idlers

The Bradken Front Idlers are engineered to provide exceptional performance and durability for hydraulic excavators used in mining applications. With a hardened roller path and engineered alloy, these idlers are designed to minimise stress concentration within the transition zone.

Bradken Load Rollers

The Bradken Load Rollers are designed to overcome the problems associated with traditional Caterpillar load roller designs. With independent axles and increased lubrication capacity, these rollers are designed to lower operating temperatures, decrease wear rate and increase component life.


Wear Monitoring

The Bradken Wear Monitoring program is designed to help mine operators and contractors obtain an accurate assessment of the amount of wear on their undercarriage components. By monitoring wear, a program can be implemented to achieve maximum life from all components, reducing the amount spent on undercarriage and extending the life of these major assets.
