This track comes in a 320mm (12.5 inches) width and an 450mm (18 inches) width also. Please call for details and to verify if the additional width will work on your machine. This track is generally available in our staggered block tread pattern, however, other tread patterns may be available upon request.
Our rubber tracks are made with helically wound continuous steel cords that are coated for protection against rust that is designed for reliable service in rigorous conditions. We use non-recycled rubber in our most technologically advanced factory that strives to bring continuous improvements to our quality products.
This track comes with a standard warranty against manufacturer defects. Always consider changing your sprockets and any worn undercarriage parts when you change your tracks. Rubber tracks and sprockets are designed to wear together and changing sprockets at any other time would reduce the lifespan of both the track and the sprocket. Other worn parts can affect the tensioning of the track and can cause de-tracking and other wear issues.
Tread Patterns Commonly Available
| || |
The off-set block tread pattern is the most general purpose tread pattern for widespread job site applications. Adequate traction with maximum floatation helps prevent damage to sensitive areas while still providing enough traction for typical job sites.
| || |
The off-set C tread pattern is common among original equipment manufactures because it gives significant forward traction and grip as well as extra traction provided by the C shaped pads when operating across a slope, even though that is not suggested practice.

This tread pattern allows for maximum traction in a wide variety of applications including mud, snow, and slopes. The additional tread depth gives you more forward traction with just enough jagged Zig-Zag edges to provide traction on a sliding slope.
