We now stock rubber tracks for your Challenger agriculture tractors. Challenger 35, 45, and 55 series models each offer this eighteen-inch wide track option referred to as a 457x152.4x53. This would be known as the 18x318 inch track option or 457x8077 mm size depending on your spec book.
Our friction-type drive lugs are developed with the hardness and tensile strength that your demanding tractor requires to get the job done. Three layers of cables strengthen the core of the track for a long-lasting service life. The patented galvanized steel cables are wound continuously throughout the track. Additional layers of protection for the steel cords prevent wear from the roller system.
This is a general-use ag track with heavy-duty tread bars in a directional pattern for optimal traction and clean-out when you are working in standard farmland conditions. Our tracks have a balance of carcass thickness and rubber hardness for general agriculture use in standard conditions. Check your undercarriage parts closely during installation and evaluate track alignment to prevent uneven wear. Correct track tension pressure should be maintained to avoid either over-tensioning or tearing a track versus under-tensioning which will create drive wheel slippage. Reference your model operations manual to see if your model has over and under-tensioning alarms and check visually on a daily basis. This track offers more guiding lugs for additional stability while still measuring the exact original specifications of the 8077mm circumference.
This agricultural tractor track is known as one of the eighteen-inch width options for several models:
Agriculture rubber tracks are produced in many specialized formats for high roading and side slopes. Our tracks are considered to have a higher range of general farming usage in a directional chevron tread pattern for aggressive traction with minimal on-road use.
In the Challenger series, the rubber tracks are tensioned by a mechanical spring or a combination of mechanical spring and nitrogen gas pressure to generate a track tension of 17,000 lbs. Per your Cat® service and operation manual, your track tension should be maintained properly, so please check often and do not rely solely on the alarm system. Proper tension and alignment are critical to getting a full lifespan from the rubber track.
Our Challenger 35-55 series rubber tracks are modeled from the original track standards with improvements to the carcass and drive lug design. Strong cables and layers of strength and protection have led to the most economically priced rubber track with the longest-lasting lifespan which provides the greatest value for your tractor maintenance budget. Increasing the number of guide lugs helps prevent de-tracking.
