The Tonkee® Track Idler Wheel for the Hitachi EX ZAXIS ZX120, ZX130-2, ZX130-3, and ZX130-5 Series is engineered with high-quality materials.
Typically, these idler wheels are constructed from high-strength steel or other durable alloys to withstand the rigorous demands of construction and excavation work. This ensures longevity and reliability in the field, reducing downtime and maintenance costs.
Track Tension Adjustment:
One of the primary functions of the idler wheel is to maintain proper track tension. It acts as a tensioning device that helps keep the track chain at the correct tension level, ensuring optimal performance and minimizing wear and tear on the track components. This feature is essential for extending the life of the undercarriage system.
Tonkee® designs its Track Idler Wheels to be easily installable, making replacement or maintenance tasks more convenient for equipment operators and technicians. The design often includes user-friendly features such as bolt-on or plug-and-play options to reduce downtime during installation.
These idler wheels are precision-engineered to meet or exceed OEM (Original Equipment Manufacturer) specifications. This ensures compatibility and a seamless fit with Hitachi EX ZAXIS ZX120, ZX130-2, ZX130-3, and ZX130-5 Series excavators, providing reliable performance in various operating conditions.
Lubrication and Sealing:
Proper lubrication and sealing are crucial for the longevity of the idler wheel. Tonkee® idler wheels often come equipped with lubrication points and high-quality seals to prevent dust, debris, and contaminants from entering the bearings. This enhances the idler wheel's lifespan and minimizes maintenance requirements.
Tonkee® idler wheels are designed to withstand heavy loads and harsh operating conditions.
Their load-bearing capacity is carefully calculated to ensure stability and durability, even in challenging excavation environments.
Advanced engineering and design may incorporate noise-reduction features to minimize the operational noise of the idler wheel, contributing to a quieter and more comfortable working environment for equipment operators.
Tonkee® ensures that its Track Idler Wheels are compatible with specific Hitachi excavator models, such as the EX ZAXIS ZX120, ZX130-2, ZX130-3, and ZX130-5 Series. This compatibility ensures that the idler wheel integrates seamlessly into the existing undercarriage system.
Maintenance and Inspection:
Routine maintenance and inspection of the Track Idler Wheel are essential for prolonging its lifespan and preventing unexpected failures. Tonkee® often provides guidelines and recommendations for maintenance tasks to ensure the optimal performance and safety of the idler wheel.
