There are some advantages to that undercarriage, but I have never thought that they outweighed the drawbacks, at least for most applications. There is a guy on HEF, that has 1600 hours on his 297C and is looking to rebuild the undercarriage, including tracks it looks to me to be around 10K. That seems like a lot of money for the amount of hours on it. If the money holds at 10K that's a little over $6.00 an hour. The question to me is does the work the machine performed worth the money laid out in repairs, could it have been performed by a regular CTL equally as well?
