Source for VTS replacement tracks?

Looking for a source for VTS replacement tracks? Tried Dale at KRTraxx but haven't got any closer to getting tracks in the three weeks of talking with him and now I can't get a returned phone call.

Any source I need these ASAP as I already have to rent a track loader for work to be done next week

I need 18" wide by 56 link
Thanks

so no one knows any place?

I tried rubbertraxxusa and haven't heard back yet.

Called Dale again today and Mailbox is full.

I'm screwed, I might have to trade in for a fully tracked machine because of this.

::Swede,
I had a company saved on my laptop that sent me some information, they had the VTS tracks for 1100 a piece. I had a bug and my laptop got wiped clean. I lost the name of the company. You might start googling rubber tracks and just start sending for or calling for requests on the VTS tracks. This is a bummer for me as I figure by the end of this year I will also need to start planning on new tracks. Of course if there is no work I guess they will last longer.

You should be able to call loegering, and they will either qoute you a price buying direct or will be able to give you some dealers in your area. As far as I know the only reputable track besides the oem is the mclarens, so far for the VTS. So you may want to give them a call as well and they should be able to point you in the direction for one of their dealers.

Thanks to all the Gehl dealer I bought my Skid from I found out was a VTS Dealer and found me a set of tracks that will be here friday. They are not Loegering brand because they were $4700, Off brand model I will give a try on for $2400.

Premier, Mclaren for VTS is in the prototype stage, if you call Mclaren they don't show or offer a set for any VTS. Trust me I checked. Dale was supposed to have a prototype set for me but not sure what happened to him.
