Yes T190 tracks are cheap. I bought one for a machine I flipped the other day for $700 shipped. Sprockets are cheap too. And I have never had a problem with a T190 bogie wheel. I have had to replace one or two idlers, but they relatively cheap.

If the T190 was just a little bit heavier with a little more power, it would be the perfect landscape machine... like a Takeuchi TL130.

just havent told my wife yet

well been doing alot of thinking on the new machine subject. decided to stick with my skid & get a 60" root grapple from WildKat Attchments in NC. once i grow in business size and the work is truly piling up for a bigger machine i will pull the trigger then.

grass cutting & landscape renovations (mulching, adding soil etc..) are still my bread and butter as of now.

like everyone always says. screw working to pay a note. Work to make money and enjoy what you are doing!
