don't worry they wont scratch the paint work.
they are swamp tracks usually a lot noiseier than normal grousers and not as nice to travel long distance tracking down the road.
I know they are called swamp tracks....are they not spost to dig in or something? I would have thought a "swamp" track would be much wider for lower ground pressure?
they do dig in but also spread the weight if they are too wide then the machine would sit on top and the tracks would just rotate.if you measure along the track following the grousers up and down you will be surprised how much longer the track bearing surface is compared to flat grousers.
Better weight distribution over the shoe and less aggressive traction wise. The triangle shape is effectively giving you a bit of lift as you move as opposed to a standard grouser which sinks in then breaks away soft material and cuts slots
Swamp tracks or Apex shoes.
I imported this late model low hour dozer late last year. Only using this machine for one job to push 15,000 tonne of imported metal prep and will put up for sale in a few months, I'm quite impressed with it but we haven't got enough ongoing work to warrant keeping it. We will make a bit of dough on the sale price as well. We then tip the dough into a new digger. Never ending merry go round.
Still living your childhood......only the toys and sandpit are bigger

The little red tractor(that could) that saved the day yesterday. The track was hard, off it,the empty truck sunk 6 inches. Was hoping to nab the half track, but was stacked deep in the shed

Had a play on it earlier on this year. Blardy noice to drive
Just screams maintenance
Yeah a mate has one of each.
Reckons the half track is great and getting stuck compared to the wheeled version.
And harder to pull out. [MENTION=5170]oraki[/MENTION] have you found similar?

Haven't had much to do with it, only spent about a week in total cultivating with it. Had a heap of power and traction, and smooth to operate. I would imagine once the hours start building, the costs will go up. Had a stint in a CAT tractor and the tracks didn't last to long, and cost a bomb to replace. Traded it just before the second set needed replacing.
I would think it would go further before getting stuck, but with the small radius on leading edge, would be harder to lift back out of the hole
That is insane.
I love this guys vids.
Now your talking, nothing better than a throaty sounding V8.
Three cars in our household and all V8's:thumbsup:
