Because tires have relatively high air pressure requirements, sometimes they are prone to blowouts, which have a great impact on combat. Tires and muddy roads are easy to fall into, but the track will not fall into it, because its contact area with the ground is much larger than the tires. The contact area with the ground, so it will not sink into the muddy road. Therefore, for the tank, the crawler type is used instead of the wheel type.
The pressure caused by the crawler on the ground is very large. Your continuous wall is dug 50 meters deep, and the subgrade box must be cushioned under the crawler shoes of the crane, or it is not easy to cause a collapse under the continuous wall. There are not many crawler rubbers for civil excavators. Tank crawlers now generally have ground rubber for crawler plates, rubber for track pins and ear hooks, and, for some, there are rubber for raceway surfaces. After replacing or disassembling the crawler and working for 20 hours, check and adjust the tension of the crawler to keep it normal. Too loose tension will easily cause the crawler belt to take off. Too tight will cause the crawler belt to elong, change the pitch, and cause accelerated wear of the iron teeth and drive wheels.
When the ground ribs are arranged in reverse, the compaction of the soil can be reduced, and the self-cleaning of the crawler can be realized and the manual cleaning can be facilitated. When the track slips, the ground bar digs away a lot of soil like impeller blades, and part of the soil adheres to the surface of the track due to the compaction of the track, which affects the adhesion of the subsequent driving process. The reason why tanks can climb steep slopes, wider trenches, wading deep water, overhanging walls, passing through marshes, crossing fields, and galloping on the battlefield unimpeded, all rely on these two tracks. Simply put, the track is the leg of the tank. The metal bumps you mentioned are anti-slip ribs used to improve the firmness of the track shoe and the adhesion of the track to the ground.
High-strength track shoe bolts with rounded corners provide a long-lasting connection. In any harsh field environment, it can always reliably provide a steady stream of driving force. Track shoes are usually made of high manganese alloy steel. Due to the special stress effect of high manganese alloy steel, it shows the characteristics of harder and harder as it is worn, which can greatly enhance the wear resistance of the track shoe. It is mostly suitable for small light industry and small construction machinery industry. Light industry is generally agricultural machinery within one to four tons. The construction machinery industry is mostly used in the small drilling industry.
Commonly used track shoes are divided into three types according to the grounding shape, there are single-reinforced, three-reinforced and flat-bottomed, and some of them also use triangular track shoes. Single-reinforced track shoes are mainly used for bulldozers and tractors, because this type of machinery requires the track shoes to have a higher traction capacity when working. However, it is rarely used on excavators. This type of track shoe is only used when the excavator is equipped with a drill frame or requires a large horizontal thrust. A higher traction is required when turning from a child, so a higher crawler bar (ie, crawler spur) will squeeze away the soil (or ground) between the crawler bars, thereby affecting the mobility of the excavator.
