∇ Summer storage
- The tracks should be removed, rolled up and stored after the skiing season. In this way, the rubber belts are not stressed.
- Before rolling up the tracks, put the felt mat (which was included in the delivery of the tracks) on the plastic tireguides, so that they are protected against damages.
- Remove all the spikes before rolling up the tracks. Otherwise, they will damage the rubber belts.
- Do not store the tracks on the ground but on a wooden base (pallets, etc.)
- Protect the tracks from direct sunlight.
∇ Summer maintenance
The tracks should be thoroughly checked after:
- Track cleat breakage
- Damaged tire guides
- Worn out or damaged joints
- Worn out joint screws
- Damaged or worn out rubber belts
- Loose or damaged screws
Repair and replace the parts as needed!
∇ Daily chain inspection
1. Rubber belts
- Check the rubber belts for wear and cracks.
- Repair any serious damages to the belt
- It is advisable to replace all the rubber belts simultaneously. If the rubber belts have expanded a lot due to usage, then the new rubber belts will not align properly with the old belts. This in turn produces an uneven tensile force along the track cleats, resulting in frequent breakage of the track cleats.
- Please check the mounting instruction for belt change below.
2. Track cleats
- Check if the track cleats are loose or broken.
- Replace any broken or damaged track cleats before operating the snow groomer.
- Mount any missing bolts in loose track cleats or replace the missing bolts (see torque specifications)
3. Tire guides
- Check for loose , missing or damaged tire guides
- Replace any missing or damaged tire guides
- Re-tighten the bolts on the loose tire guides or replace any missing bolts.
- Replace any damaged joints
- Check the sprocket for wear, which could damage the tire guides.
- Check the tire pressure; it should be constantly at 7.5 bar.
- Caution The tire pressure depends on the temperature.
