The lifespan in hours of a bottom roller on a Bobcat excavator is not a universally fixed value, and there isn’t a standardized number that can be quoted across all situations. The durability of the bottom roller depends heavily on various factors including the environmental conditions in which the excavator operates, the type of terrain, the frequency of use, the weight of the loads, and how well the machinery is maintained.
For example, working on tough, rocky terrain with heavy loads will lead to much earlier wear and tear when compared to occasional use on soft soil. Moreover, maintenance activities such as regular cleaning, timely lubrication, and prompt replacement of worn parts can significantly prolong the lifespan of bottom rollers.
A certified Bobcat dealer or the manufacturer might provide a range of operational hours as a guideline based on their tests and customer feedback. However, to get the most accurate estimate for your specific situation, it would be best to consult directly with a Bobcat representative or a knowledgeable dealer who can assess the usage conditions and maintenance history of your excavator.
Keep in mind that proactive monitoring, maintenance, and the use of genuine replacement parts are vital for maximizing the operational life of the bottom rollers. It’s also important to establish a regular inspection routine so that issues can be detected early and addressed before they lead to more significant damage or complete failure.
