Komatsu offers the correct shoe for all underfoot conditions

Track shoes provide the working platform for the machine. Track shoes penetrate the ground giving the machine traction to move. Proper shoe selection is very important for better machine performance and longer undercarriage life. The narrowest shoe possible that allows adequate floatation should always be selected. A wider shoe is more likely to reduce the life of the undercarriage due to flexing while the machine is riding over rocks and hitting obstacles. Komatsu offers the correct shoe for all underfoot conditions and it is specifically engineered for both dozers and excavators.

Dozers

  • Single Grouser: manufactured for rugged operations. Its extra-thick grouser offers excellent resistance.
  • Double/Triple Grouser: this type of shoe provides lower traction due to low grousers. Operates efficiently on soft ground and during cargo handling in ships. Low in turning resistance, high in maneuverability.
  • Heavy Duty Shoe: The grouser and plate portions of this shoe are thicker and stronger, which provides a higher bending and wear resistance. It is suitable for mid-size and large dozers that are used in abrasive, high impact applications.
  • Swamp: this shoe is designed with an arc-style penetration, creating buoyancy in swamp applications. Suitable for use in small and mid-size bulldozers.

Excavators

  • Triple Grouser: strong, sturdy shoe for low penetration. Equipped with three grousers of equal height. Operates efficiently on soft ground and during cargo handling in ships. Low in turning resistance – high in maneuverability.
  • Double/Single Grouser: these types of shoe have taller grouser bar and are designed for increased penetration.  Suitable for use in adverse conditions. 
  • Heavy Duty Shoe: The grouser and plate portions of this shoe are thicker and stronger, which provides a higher bending and wear resistance. Suitable for abrasive and high impact applications.
  • Roadliner/City Shoe: with low noise and low vibrations, this shoe is designed to operate easily and smoothly on the asphalt and other paved or cement surfaces.
