Skid Steer Track Kits Improve Mobility

Camso (formerly Camoplast Solideal) offers over-the-tire rubber tracks (OTT HXD) designed to give wheeled skid steer machines up to five times more ground flotation than with conventional pneumatic tires. The OTT HXD design includes an embedded iron core and an engineered wing profile to keep the tracks securely attached to the tires and avoid de-tracking on tough terrain. An internal traction rib maximizes the fit between the track and the tire tread, so the tracks run efficiently without slippage and undue wear on the tire tread or sidewall. According to the vendor, by taking on the load when the ground surface is treacherous, OTT tracks can actually extend the life of standard tires. Camso, based in Québec, Canada, said it has designed the tracks for easy-on, easy-off installation in as little as 20 minutes.
