Get The Most Out of Your Rubber Track

Rubber tracks can account for up to 50% of the Compact Track Loader’s expected maintenance costs during the first 3 years* of operation. Cat® steel-embedded rubber tracks are specifically engineered for maximum durability across all types of challenging applications. This means more jobsite uptime and a lower cost-per-hour.

• Cat Heavy Duty Bar rubber tracks deliver a lower ground disturbance solution, making it a great fit for all types of finish-grade work. The bar-style rubber track tread offers extra traction above the block tread when operating in snow or soft underfoot conditions.
• Cat Heavy Duty Block rubber tracks deliver a rugged, all-purpose solution suitable for machines working in high impact and high abrasion production-style applications.
• Cat General Duty Zig-Zag rubber tracks are designed for the cost-conscious customer. The zig-zag
tread pattern is suitable for a variety of medium to low impact applications and optimal traction for snow
conditions.

These tips will help you save time and money down the road by making your tracks last longer:

INSPECT TRACKS FOR WEAR – To help determine if you should replace a track soon, look for cracks, missing chunks, or low tread depth at least once per day.

CHECK TRACK TENSION REGULARLY – Loose tracks will cause lug damage and derailment; tight tracks will increase wear on roller wheels, sprockets and drive motors.

CLEAN UP DAILY – Do it several times a day if you are working in mud, clay, sand or gravel to reduce unnecessary wear.

OPERATE WITH TRACKS IN MIND – Make careful turns, be conscious when driving on slopes, and shut down in cold weather to increase longevity.
