How are those tracks working for you? I just ordered a sat for my s185 bobcat. Do a lot of bush hogging with mine and hope they will allow me to get more wet areas without getting stuck

I hauled 5 dump trailer loads out that lawn to get it drain right and the 5240 made it simple work
I graded one lawn without the tracks and I notice then that 5240 is heavy but with the tracks on don't notice much rutting as I rough grade this lawn

With new cutting edge on made the grading easier I could see my edge better

So far I like them I haven't got it stuck with the tracks on increase my ground clearance

But you will see with tracks on you will want more HP
