What over the tire tracks have you used?

I have alot of clay soil, and hilly terrain that is just making it hard to get around on my Cat 262. What type of over the tire tracks have you guys used. I've looked at the Grouser cross-bar track and the McLaren Diamond the most. I mainly just use the machine for clean up around my own property doing brush piling and such. Any advice will help greatly, Thanks.

Get the McCLaren pro track steel. They are the best tracks out there. I am getting a set of the pro track rubber, so I can go across customers driveways with out tearing them up.

I have the Loegren Trail Blazers. They seem to work well. They have more of a pad for increased floatation. No issues with them other than the PINA putting them on thing.

I run the tracksplus brand and am very happy with them for the money.They are a good track and have a large shoe, are rebuildable and quite reasonable. About 1/2 of grouser or logeuring. 2 set of these would run as long as the major brands inho
