Skid Steer Solutions sells them, they appear to be the same product. They're $50 a piece from SSS.

Saw those before, neat idea, gotta be a rough ride on hard ground.

IMHO, if you need those to get the job done due to extreme muck, you might wanna consider using an excavator or wait until conditions improve.

agreed...the more muck and heavy mud you run in the more you have to clean the tracks and the more wear and tear you have on your idlers and rollers

I saw these last summer and they seem like they would really add a lot of traction. Also looks like they are currently only made to fit 12" & 18" Bobcat tracks, although they may fit some others. Some machines may not have enough clearence to run them either.

Looked to see if they would fit a CAT 287, but track profile looks too different and also clearence in upper rear area.

The pictures of the individual cleats are the production forged-type, while many of the videos and other action shots look like a prototype. Need 14 to 18 cleats/per track. Looks like a good solution for some folks and situations.

i currently have a guy getting me the price to put single grouser steel tracks on a ct332, the steel tracks are made by supertrak. i think they will hold up to some real abuse and provide a lot of added traction.

I agree with bobcat ron, Wait until things dry up, Wading that much mud is some hard on skids.

what kind of work are you doing?...in my personal experience single grousers do more harm then good, but if you are into forestry then it is the way to go

The supertrak single grousers were designed for forestry work, I doubt that they offer triple or even double grouser pads. However, I think it's interesting that steel tracks are becoming more popular on select CTLS.

If you are going with steel tracks they would have to be triple bar grouser a single bar grouser would probably tear the under carriage right out of a CTL.

By the sounds of it you need a small fullsize trackloader or use a different way of doing the job.

i would like to have them so i could swap between the rubber and the steel. even triple grousers would work good. and yes forestry is what they will get used for the rubber ones get cut up so fast.
