Bearcat Tyres has launched a range of over-the-tyre (OTT) rubber tracks to provide skidsteer loaders with the traction and performance they often lack in tough conditions.
Bearcat distributes Solideal’s Over the Tyre Rubber Track, known as the Trackmaster.
Ideal for loose, uneven or unstable ground, where skidsteers often slip and slide, the Trackmaster offers increased stability, high flotation, traction, control and manoeuvrability. As a result, the Trackmaster offers cost savings through faster and more efficient skidsteer operation in challenging ground and weather conditions.
According to Solideal/ Bearcat Tyres’ extensive research and testing, the Trackmaster provides more effective traction far superior to tyres, while also improving performance in rough, rocky and muddy ground.
Richard Blacker, regional sales and marketing manager of Bearcat Tyres, said, “We have tested the Trackmaster in the most hazardous conditions and they have performed well and shown a high degree of reliability. What was also apparent was the low cost of ownership and maintenance required. As an all-weather, all-condition track, I think anyone would be hard-pressed to go past these rubber tracks.”
As well as performing well, Blacker claims the tracks are easy to fit, taking less than 15 minutes – without the need to demount the wheel or tyre.
Other features include a fully closed flotation surface to ensure debris is not able to travel through open spaces; a self-cleaning tread design; a low weight compared to steel tracks; and no spin tyres and tracks.
The Trackmaster has been designed to fit common brands of tyres and, based on application, overall diameter and axle distance.
Bearcat Tyres’ dealers can recommend the appropriate size and model for individual applications.
