Trackmobile Rebuild

When the Trackmobile came in, our team began disassembling and assessing the current condition of the unit. The entire subframe was bent and required replacement. The motor mounts were broken. The power train shifted and out of place. The cab was completely busted in, and warped.

With the machine apart.  The team began making repairs to the body and frame. The power train was carefully moved back into alignment. All broken mounts were replaced. The team installed the entire new subframe, and cab. While doing this, the cab was upgraded to the modern 2020 cab. All of the controls were updated. Buster’s team carefully aligned and custom installed the cab to fit properly with the older frame. While updating the Trackmobile, our team upgraded the Viking’s cab comforts. They installed a new air conditioner and cab heat.  New seat. All new insulation. Finally, the Trackmobile was painted with fresh decaling and tested.
