Most of the aftermarket tracks will be the same quality as they are made in the same factories in the same place. McClaren seem too be a step up from most but It seems the OEM are still the best. Like on my TL140 I have found they range in price of 1100.00 dollars for the cheapest Aftermarket too 1800.00 for OEM.

I had a representative from a Dominion track outlet show up at my door less than 2 years ago, I ripped up the brochure. I trust Mclaren or OEM. No substitutions.

My personal opinion is there is Bridgestone and then their is all the other aftermarket stuff. And I am not paying double for bridgestone

1 year ago I would have disagreed but my tracks are literally falling apart with 1100 hours. They still look good enough for 500 more hours but the drive cleats are coming out of the tracks. I am going aftermarket myself.

Run Forest! Run!

I had a set of Dominion tracks....they did not work out too well.

I have Solideal "B" pattern tracks now and LOVE them. I will be get another pair when these wear out. Unless someone proves to me that there is something better.
I just turned 1,000 hours on them, and expect to get close to 2,000 total.

I bought them through Midwest Equipment, I believe they are located in Ohio....check tracksandtires.com
I think the tracks are called B-pattern or "crossfit"

My ex has over 1700 hours on the tracks and they look new? How long are you getting out of your tracks?

I know people on here have their own opinions and experiences with McLaren tracks. My experience I would now steer clear of McLaren tracks for excavators. I have a Kubota KX121-3 excavator. I replaced the original OEM tracks after 2800 hrs. One track the steel cord began to let go. It eventually failed. I like to replace tracks in pairs.
After 400 hrs. the two new McLaren tracks are developing cracks in the rubber approx. 2" in from both the outer as well as the inner edge on the track side of both tracks. The metal cord can be seen inside of the cracks. I'm finding the cord is only to be about an 1/8" from the surface. When I purchased the tracks I was offered a heavier duty version tracks at an additional cost. I chose the HD version. When they arrived, I found the tracks didn't even come close to being as heavy or beefy as the worn out OEM tracks I was replacing., I am 2 month over the 1 year warranty. I have spoken with McClaren's customer service. They had me send them pictures of the tracks. After them reviewing the pics, I was told they are not defective. It seems they outsource their customer service. The girl I spoke to said she has been doing this job for 2 years now. Has never had any field experience. But can determine by just looking at pictures whether or not tracks are defective.
