Customer Question

I have a CAT Skidsteer 299 D. Seems like the track motor will lock up temporarily on both sides. It doesn't happen simotaneously. When it happens it feels like one side locks up but the other still rotates. Sometimes it clears on its own and sometimes the machine has to be shut down to reset. Once the machine has been restarted it may operate fine for 30 minutes but then will lock back up again. My thought is a speed sensor or low pilot pressure. Any idea what could be the solution?
