he could always walk beside it when going across concrete, so this won't solve all problems since he'll need to load and unload and go over curbs and stuff

My very brief review: excellent on turf, does not correct pavement chatter. Read my post for more details

Would you recommend buying them over the OEM style track then?

I have to get a set ordered in the next couple of days and I'm trying to figure my best route to go.

If you're looking for a turf track, I think I like these better than the Rubbertrax ones I had on previously. those had a more aggressive tread pattern even though they were supposed to be turf tracks.

I did end up getting the prowlers last spring and couldn't be happier with the results.

Wayyyyyy better turf friendliness over OEM tracks.

I want a chance to try them in the snow also. I have a feeling that the tread pattern is going to be better on the pavement after a snow storm. Rarely do I use the mini for snow work, but if we get a big storm then it gets used for sidewalks and small drives for moving snow around.

Mine seemed to have held up well so far, but the machine only gets used so much each season.

I know it seems you guys use your SK much more than we use our Vermeer.

And I will say the pavement chatter isn't as bad as it was with the prowler track. Still there, but not rattling my insides as bad.
