well this info is priceless... this guy worked for a skid steer co for over ten years i have saw him go through the ranks to become the head mech there so he knows his sh#t I bought several of their machines never a track he told me that there is no comparison between the tak and all the others...if you get their sheet compare it with any other he also said (now it sounded like greek to me) but something about the #/sq in and also how the force is x y and z compared to other and how a ? rear gear is like a dozer...he also said the undercarriage are sick...im going to take a look at one on friday...the looks arent there but who cares...also he said avg repair for the undercarriage on the others

That's a good plan, you can try the machine without any pressure and try it in different situations.

I've been told you can get a wider track(16") and it fits on the 130 size instead of the 12" track. I would love to see/try that out, I think it would help big time for floatation.

It's a custom order, but there is lots of room for a wider track, but the TL130 is only 62" wide, you would be surprised how tight of an opening you can squeeze through.
