257B2 Skid steer undercarriage rebuild
This rebuild started with a simple replacement of the tracks. That is not a simple task either but upon taking the tracks off we discovered a few other issues that needed immediate attention.

Our Bearcat wood chipper 70085 has been sitting for over a year. The deep cycle battery died a couple years ago so I rely on the pull start, which works great. Until the other day.
