Undercarriages

We Back Your Tracks

The honest truth is that when it comes to undercarriages, all you need to remember is: John Deere builds them better and John Deere backs them better. Choose from three different undercarriages to best fit the needs of your operation.

  • John Deere Standard Undercarriage
  • John Deere Extended Life Undercarriage
  • John Deere Maximum Life Undercarriage

Key Features

Staggered Rollers

With stagered roller design, undercarriages have increased durability, less vibration, and a much smoother ride.

Track Shoes

John Deere track shoes are tough as nails because they're made of through-hardened boron steel. Available in a wide selection of shoe configurations, you can choose a shoe tailor-made for your application.

Track Rollers

Forged from a boron steel alloy then through-hardened to a good core hardness, our track rollers prevent bushings from loosening. We also deep heat treat the roller outside diameter for maximum wear life.

Track Links

Track links also forged from a boron-steel alloy allow deeper heat-treating, which helps keep the pins and bushings from loosening even in severe applications.

Compare Undercarriages

Savings are significant when you opt for the John Deere Maximum Life Undercarriage. In fact, tests* show the combination of SC-2 bushings, larger components, and improved seals deliver 57% per hour cost savings over standard sealed and lubed track.

Maximum Life Undercarriage

This system combines our popular and exclusive SC-2™ coated bushings with dramatically improved seals and larger, longer-wearing components to deliver significantly longer and more even wear.

We designed this undercarriage to withstand up to 4,500 hours in wet, highly abrasive soil. And with bushings, seals, and larger components working together as a system, wear life is longer and occurs more uniformly between all system components.

John Deere-Exclusive SC-2™ Coating

Through advances in heat treatment, alloy powders, atmospherics, and robotics, John Deere perfected the slurry-coat process, establishing a new technique that creates a tough shell around a wear part that won't break or crack under duress.

Seven years of testing have proven that the SC-2 coating is 25% harder than chrome plating and that SC-2-coated parts deliver approximately twice the wear. And that's just the laboratory tests. SC-2 has also been tested where it really counts — in the field.
