Who has Solideal (OTT)Tracks

I was thinking buying a set for a Gehl . I like see if anybody on here has them and what you have them for.

I would use them in lawns and at the farm to do some brush cleaning mostly thorn trees to clear

Few things I would like to know

How well do they wear if ran on pavement??
If you have them, can you tell me the good and bad about them??
Would you run them for snow work???

I thinking going with set of Loegering Tracks but the Solideal tracks are half price

All the experiences we've had with them have all been horrible. My advise is to steer very clear away from them.

I ran a set for a year or two, thought it would be a cheaper alternative than buying a ctl. Worked great, except hard on axle seals, chains and sprockets. Dirt, mud, rock get inside the track between the tires and won't easly fall out like steel tracks and puts and a lot of pressure on the axles.

My advice would be run steel tracks or suck it up and buy a CTL.

I was wondering about that.

Have you ran the Steel OTT with Pads

Come down to it I'll buy the 16'' loegering tracks. I know a lot guys around here running them

[QUOTEHave you ran the Steel OTT with Pads ][/QUOTE]

I ran loegering steel tracks without pads for years and had no problems. The rubber pads look to me that they would rip off if you spun them out on the right piece of concrete.

Hi Snyder, l have been running a see to Mclaren protrack rubber for two years are love them. Good floatation, great pushing power and add stability and some extra lifting capacity to my 763.
Really glad l bought them, but they will make more disturbance to lawn than the solideals.

I was also looking at them vs the solideal

At the farm have some thorn trees I need to clear and with the solideal system I wouldn't need non flat tires.
With the McLaren there are open areas where thorns could flatten the tire unless I run non flat tires. In lawns I say the McLaren would work perfect.
I am looking at it different ways.

I have a set of OTT Camoplast solideal tracks coming. I found a local guy has 2 sets and one set is 10 yrs old with no problems.
For what I'm going use them for they will work half price vs the bolt on tracks
