DOZER WEAR KIT
Dozer fleet comes delivered with a standard caterpillar factory supplies wear plate package on the blades. We get a life of around 10,000-12,000hrs max out of this package before it needs to be replaced. HOW DID WE IMPROVE IT? We have been installing an Arcoplate wear package for several years on our fleet of Dozer, that was recently parked up using this practice had Arcoplate kit installed at 10,000hrs. It was the last wear kit to be installed to this machine. The machine was parked up at around 82,000hrs.
WHAT IMPACT DO WE EXPECT THE CHANGE TO HAVE?
We are currently running a fleet of Dozers. Cost to install either package is the same. So again, Caterpillar wear option install, is extra spent over the 65,000hrs life of a machine. Arcoplate option would be a less spend over the 65,000hrs life of a machine. Arcoplate package is a saving of the 65,000hrs life of a machine/ machine.
