Ken, Are yalls tracks re-buildable? I will be working in drilling mud, it is very slick, and can be deep at times. How does your tracks do for flotation? and for traction in slick mud? I will be putting lots of hours on them, up to 80 hours a week, so i will need some that have replaceable links and pads. Thanks Shawn
Yes fully, there are only 4 parts,
Shoes, side links and pivot bolt and locknut. With two 3/4” wrenches you can completely disassemble every piece.
As far as traction, I think they would bite as good as any other brand on any surface except ice or snow. Mind you most steel tracks are like skates in the snow and ice.
As far as mud goes it is far more common to have problems with the tires spinning inside the tracks, and if you work in greasy conditions it helps greatly to run the tracks on the snug side of the recommended tension.
I bought my first sets of tracks extra long so I would have spare parts should anyone need them but they are still collecting dust in on the shelf, However if you are worried about down time, I'd recommend that just in case and its cheaper than buying spares as “parts”
