basic track question

16 years 4 weeks ago #1604 by beaver-flat
What do you do when it's time to turn the pins and bushings? Do you dissasemble the track and take to a cat dealer or do it yourself? This task is going to be in my future (down the road anyway) and I was curious how most of you catskinner experts do it:)
Its a D6-2H tractor, just looking for general comments and tools used.

You find someone who is in the track business. Split the track, and haul it to them. I found a guy near here who did it for me (to free mine up - they were rusted), and he was telling me tales of rusted parts flying every which way, and then I noticed he was missing fingers and only had 1 eye that worked.... Track work is rough and hard. To do a P&B turn on a machine like that is hard work, even with the right tools. I had mine done (both sides), that required 1/2 of the pad bolts, plus some new pins and bushings (they roemoved some of them with a torch - 100ton in the press just made some mushroom, and not move)..... and my bill was under $800.
