 sumitomo excavator

hello
I am trying to put a rubber track back on this 14,000 lb
machine. it popped off to the inside on both ends. i must have exerted too much sideway force.
i am trying to use come alongs and farm jacks.
is there a secret method. the come alongs attach to trees.
it is not in an easy spot.
thank you very much.
andy

Don't you have to reduce the tension on the rollers to do so? Know very little here other than reading manual on mine a little smaller than yours and it reads that you do. It is my "impression" some of these adjustments are straight forward and easy to understand and some are little complicated. Mine uses grease to keep the track at proper tension and I think you have to remove the grease fitting to allow the grease a way out to reduce the tension. Don't remember it telling how to apply the pressure to push the grease out.

I have heard of operators who could loose a track and pull it back on with no tools. That would seem to be a very loose track to me.

Understand the part about not in an easy spot, believe they are designed that way. Smile kt
