I need to buy tracks for our 2006 T190 (1300 hours) and would like to do so in the next 24 hours, I need to know who has used what after market brands and how good they have to been. The Dealer wants $2800 for a new set of tracks.


Thanks for any replies.

Did you put that McLaren T190 track on. How does it run and feel like? Does it look like a quality track? We will be needing some T190 tracks soon, too...

DONT DO IT !!!!!!!!!!!
march 2007 bought new tracks from McLaren. $899.00 each plus shipping. Started using it in May of 2007 within 2 months all the rubber was cracking on them. I thought no big deal all rubber has to "give" a little. August of this year on of the tracks snapped in two. steel cable and everything. (all the opperator was doing was moving sand)

talked to Mclarens " Warrenty specialist" said sorry 12 month warrenty only. I asked how long a new set of tracks should last and he told me appro. 1200 hours. he shut up real quickly when i said we had about 400-500 hours on them.

Now they realy wanted to work with me :dizzy: the specialist said and would give me a big discount on new one to compensate for the "issue" he said the new price for the same tracks has gone up to $999.99 each BUT he would be happy to discount them to 899.99 each because of my warranty "issue"

I told them thanks but see la later.

We picked up a used one from our Bobcat dealer for $400 that had more hours on it than the McLaren one did when it broke and this used one works good.

I will probably buy new OEM ones in the spring

I still maintain that Bridgestone still makes the best tracks. Remember, you get what you pay for. I don't know of a single CTL manufacturer selling their machines with anything other than Bridgestone as the original standard track.

Case and new holland sell the CTL's with solideal tracks as OEM tracks with a bridgestone track tread pattern on the tracks.

Are you sure? I will check,but don't think so. I do not like the Bridge stone's because on the T300's and CT332's they beat the machine up so bad and the rubber where the rollers run on the rubber breakdown so fast that they even beat the machine up worse.

Case and New Holland still use the Bridgestone tracks out of the factory. My good friend is a Case salesman and I walk by the new machines in the yard all the time...still Bridgestone.

march 2007 bought new tracks from McLaren. $899.00 each plus shipping. ....

Hi Superior, thanks for the good info. Which McLaren track did you buy? When I called them they gave me two prices -- $993.99 for their low end but "improved new design" track and $1157 (but he later discounted it to $1059) for their Premium NextGen TDF track... When I asked what's the difference, I was pretty much told the same -- you get what you pay for and that TDF has been designed for CTL abuse from the ground up! :weightlifter: :clapping::clapping: But he also told me something very interesting; Bobcat has been severely testing McLaren new TDF tracks for over a year and approved them, and now McLaren is directly selling tracks to Bobcat, but he didn't specify what kind of track. I checked with Bobcat web site and I think he is referring to Bobcat's "Multi-terrain track" because it looks very much like the TDF -- http://www.bobcat.com/partsandservice/genuine_parts/tracks. :usflag:

If this is really the case, I seriously consider going with McLaren TDFs. If McLaren really made a substantially better track for just $60 more and Bobcat has tested it, how can I lose?! :dancing: Anyone knows more about the TDFs? What guys do you think I should do? I'm also considering Solideals, but I read few bad comments about their CTL rubber tracks on the forum. A guy from Australia was very bitter about the Solideals on his Bobcat... :confused: :confused:

i just got to solideals for less less then half of what the tdfs where going to cost me. i dont care how well he clams they are made, the rubber is still going to wear down to nothing. yeah the cords broke in my old solideals but i dont think this happens to every set of track.

Hi Picasso, I'm not sure where you got your Solideal tracks from, but the prices I got quoted are about the same as the McLarens. It's possible they've raised their prices recently. For all the T190 owners, here is what I finally found out:

McLaren regular (Atlanta)- $993.00
Solideal (New Orleans) -- $1,050.00
McLaren TDF Premium (Atlanta) -- $1,059.90
Solideal (LA)-- $1,266.12

I've decided to go with the McLaren TDFs, mostly because they've been tested and sold by Bobcat and I found no bad comments on them on all forums I've checked. I'll let you all know how they perform... Thank you all for all the help. :usflag:

While Bobcat is going towards the multi-lug pattern (like CAT, ASV, etc.), New Holland has chosen these large-chunky pattern. Seems to me that you'll have a rough ride with these new Solideal tracks... anyone having any real life experience with them?

I would also think that the more rubber touching the ground, like the multi-lug pattern, the less ground pressure and thus longer track life -- all other things kept the same. I think I sound like a pro... :-)

i believe we have used a few places, but i know we've used
www.rubbertrackusa.com, it was a good price and we got it fast, and installed ourselves. and if u got 1300 out of those original tracks thats excellent, we got i believe less than 800 out of one side of the NH C190 because the an inexperienced operator had a rock jammed in it and didnt notice. And then the other went with around 900 hours just from normal wear and tear, rocks and tracks dont work well together. we do alittle better with the mini because it takes less wear and tear

so good luck

We just got our second track in today, Wow what a difference in ride quality and traction. I am very happy with out purchase and will be buying tracks for our mini x very soon.
I paid $1351 shipped per track, We got the best tracks we could though. Much better ride, just driving across the gravel, it didn't vibrate near as much. I can't wait to get it in the mud.

It seems as though track prices have come down dramatically, I checked out a set of the new Bobcat Multi-lug tracks yesterday, and they were just over $1100 CAN per track, and the C lugs were $1300 per track, I remember paying $1800 per track in 2005.

I find that odd since the price of oil has gone up and everything goes up in price.

What tracks are these? The McLaren TDFs or the standard ones?
