Prowler vs. Mclaren

Has anyone on this forum have any real world experience with Prowler tracks?
Durability ?
www.prowlertracks.com/make/bobcat-tracks.html

I am considering using the AT version ..but just curious if there are any bad comments available for there product.

I have used Mclaren multibar tracks in the past with great results but they will wear out on the inside where the rolls ride on in approx 500 - 900 hrs

How much life is left on the outside of the tracks?

Got any pics of the worn insides?

Not the same as a full sized skid, but I purchased a set of Prowlers for my mini this year and I love them so far.

It was more of the track pattern over price, and the tracks I purchased don't tear up the turf as bad.

I will say though, you get what you pay for. The tracks individually weighed almost 20 lbs less than the OEM Vermeer tracks, so it's either the density or thickness of the track that is different, so ultimately they might not hold up as well over time.

Here you go..... 900 hr tracks that were used in some harsh conditions
Such as concrete demo and pitrun/ B gravel leveling on driveways or yards
This track was still in use this year but the ride was fairly rough
