Why wait. Take advantage of 0% interest and secured financing over 24 months on Cat Undercarriage options..

The only OEM designing and building undercarriage for more than 110 years.

Get the most from your undercarriage investment. Undercarriage represents an average 50% of your machine’s owning and operating costs, so it makes sense to invest in a system that will deliver the most value.

We design and build our own undercarriage, giving us 100% quality control for a machine-specific product match and low O&O costs.


Cat® undercarriage is designed to work and wear as a system to help make it last with correct operation and maintenance. Undercarriage maintenance costs can consume a large portion of your maintenance budget. It’s good to understand how it works so you can reduce wear and minimize costs.


Tight tracks create excess stress throughout the undercarriage, increasing wear on bushings, sprockets, links, and idlers. Follow the tension-adjusting procedures in your machine’s owner’s manual or consult your Cat dealer.


The extra flotation of the wide shoes used for muddy conditions can actually increase wear and strain on links, pins, and bushings when used in high impact conditions.


You can equip the machine to handle the soil conditions of a specific environment. Use center-punched shoes and optimize guarding in muddy conditions to reduce packing and the increased tension and wear it causes. Use extreme service shoes and carrier rollers for abrasive conditions.
