the entire machine had 180ish hrs. on it..sprockets looked new. I've never have seen this before with OEM tracks with this low of hrs.. I think the rubber must have been a bad mix because the machine certainly wasn't abused. It happened shortly after I sold it to a man in Manitoba, so I wasn't the one it happened to. I credited him money to put towards his replacement tracks (went with Camoplast).

I met another guy who welded studs onto his bars when they pulled out of his track (TL150) and bolted them through the top of the track, much like a larry lug in a cat track. Said they held up just fine. He was able to increase the life of many a set of tracks this way as he was very hard on them...got maybe 500 hrs. out of a set of OEM tracks.
