General Duty Undercarriage

The Right Balance of Performance and Value

Whatever your track-type Cat machine, we have the General Duty Undercarriage to match your needs. Designed for use in low- to moderate-impact applications where the value of Cat Heavy Duty or Grease Lubricated Undercarriage is not fully needed, General Duty rounds out the Cat undercarriage options for medium-size machines.


While General Duty is built to different specifications than Heavy Duty (HD) or Grease Lubricated Undercarriage (GLT), its design makes General Duty components interchangeable with HD/GLT, eliminating any need for retrofitting and keeping downtime to a minimum. Cat HD/GLT shoes can be installed on General Duty link assemblies to meet various customer requirements.

General Duty offers a variety of track shoe options. In addition to undercarriage components, track shoe selection can impact traction and flotation as well as overall undercarriage wear life. For the conditions in which General Duty Undercarriage will typically operate, moderate service shoes offer optimal performance and wear life. (General Duty preassembled track groups are available from your Cat dealer.) General Duty is covered by Cat Undercarriage Assurance.
