Anyone have expirence with the Protrac Over the tire rubber tracks. Thinking of ordering a set here soon. Just curious what sort of traction i could expect from the rubber and also how are they on turf. The rubber pads are bolt on so they can be replaced. Also, they can be interchanged with the steel plates which is pretty cool. Thanks in advance.

Are the Protrac tracks made by McLaren? I absolutely LOVE their thier semi-pneumatic tires but have no experience with tehir tracks. Good company, though!

JDSkidsteer- I have read some of your other posts, although i beleive you dealt with track styles like the solideal tracks. The Mclaren Protrac is basically a steel grouser track with bolt on rubber pads that are replaceable.

Yes they are made by Mclaren. I talked to the sales rep on the phone and seemed very knowledgeable.

They look to be a very useful product. Anyone else know anyhting about them?

Grouser had similar style and distributor discouraged me from selling that style. I sold another style made out of polyerathane and they were a pain. Mclaren does have a good reputation with their tires, but I am still gun shy.
