Rubber track is a type of circular rubber belt which is composed of rubber
and metal or fiber materials. It is a kind of rubber transmission belt which
is mostly applied on moving system, the agricultural machineries,
construction machineries and other transportation vehicles to replace the
metal track and tires. The popularity of tracks is growing extensively and
quickly. From large scale construction equipment to mini skid steers and
motorized wheelbarrows, these tracks are widely in use. These tracks are
also designed for original equipment on many major manufacturers compact
construction machinery. Theses tracks are widely used in various
applications under wide variety of conditions of the world. The application
and working conditions are prime factors when deciding upon rubber tracks on
a skid loader or excavator. These tracks are available for all rubber track
mini-excavators, excavators and most rubber tracked skid loaders.
Uses of rubber tracks
- Type of rubber transmission belt excellent at low ground connection
force, superior traction force.
- These track ameliorates the driving effect and expands usage in range
of the agricultural machines and construction machines etc.
- Used in the mechanization of the basic construction.
- Driving and transport of farmland, desert, marsh field and other soft
- The track is a reinforced rubber belt with chevron treads for
improved traction and reduced soil compaction.
- Having a rubber belt also means that the vehicle can relocate itself
on public roads without damaging the road surface.
- These tracks on compact track loaders and excavators offer many
benefits which in-fact compact track loaders and excavators with tires
and/or steel tracks cannot offer.
- These tracks optimizes the traction system performance.
- The tracks also show power delivery efficiency.
- In straight pulling, the rubber tracks can develop substantially more
force than rubber tires for the same weight of the tractor.
- With tracks, there are no pressures or weights to change and the
tracks usually perform at their optimum.
Types of rubber track
How to take care of tracks?
- Snowmobile tracks
- Skidsteer tracks
- Snowgroomer tracks
- Earth-mover tracks
- Skid Loader Rubber Tracks
- Dump Carrier Rubber Tracks
- Excavator Rubber Tracks
- Maintain the correct tension on your track.
- Check the undercarriage components like drive wheel, rollers, idlers
for wear regularly.
- Try to limit the use of your vehicle on sharp rocky surfaces.
- Try to avoid too many fast and sharp turns.
- Try to prevent foreign objects from becoming entangled in the
- You should not drive with your rubber track sidewall edges pressing
against hard walls and other objects.
- Clean your tracks regularly to prevent accumulation of oil or similar
- Usage of these track in applications such as rocky terrain, gravel,
concrete demolition, metal debris, etc. may cause premature wear and
failure of the tracks. When using rubber track-equipped compact loaders
and excavators, the more careful an operator is, the better the track
wear performance will be.
