If your rubber tracks are no longer performing at their best, STTC can help you replace them with new, efficient, highly functional tracks to get you back to doing the hard work.
Skid steer loaders sometimes have rubber tracks, which work to grip the ground, providing traction and pull, as the vehicle moves across difficult terrain. These tracks are made with the highest standards in rubber compounding materials in mind, helping provide the highest duration tread wear.
Rubber tracks may be used on numerous types of equipment, including compact track loaders, crawler dumpers, directional drills, excavators, and more. The most complicated step in purchasing rubber tracks is ensuring proper measurement. To choose the right size, you’ll need the following information:
With this information, it is then possible to determine the proper sizing of the rubber tracks needed. Note that most often, with just the make, model, and year, you can get a good idea of what size you need.
There are three steps to measuring the size of the rubber track. Measure the width of the track. This is displayed in millimeters. Then, measure the pitch, also in millimeters. The pitch is the amount of distance between the center of two links. The final step is to count the number of links on the track itself.
In some situations, manufacturers will place a stamp on the inside of the track with the information needed. If this is available, follow the information on the rubber track before measuring it yourself. This number is an industry standard figure that our team can easily look up.
Aside from the brand and size, there are other factors to think about when buying rubber tires. Most importantly, consider the application and what type of terrain is involved. Will it be boggy? A mine pit? Sandy? Also consider the length of the warranty on the tire, the cut and wear resistant rubber compound used to help reduce cuts and tears, and whether it has steel inserts. It’s also important to consider the various track patterns. Be sure to review your vehicle’s owner’s manual to determine the proper track patterns.
