Camoplast/solideal tracks. Same as the one on jcb CTLs. They are the oem supplier.

The ride on these tracks are amazing. Really good traction.

So far I like these tracks. Holding up well too concrete demo, road etc. They sap the power on turns as they get more traction. The z bar pattern is harder on grass than the factory track pattern. For what they cost they are a bargain.
My friend has bought 2 sets of the Chinese tracks on 2 different bobcats and both seemed too show wear really fast. Have another friend with the chionese tracks on his TL130 and they are wearing fast. I doubt they will last much over 600 hours.

My opinion the best are still Bridgestone.
Camoplast are better than most of the Chinese tracks.

I do also like the camoplast/solideal tracks. Have a set on a TL130, they last pretty well and provide good traction. I did rip one in half a few years back but it was on an old set that was pretty worn so I can't complain too much.

That being said I'm not sure anymore if you get more for more $.

Have a TL140 with OEM takeuchi tracks, they were expensive but seem to be holding up very well so far. Seems a tougher track than the camoplast ones although not sure if the price difference is worthwhile.

Have a TB016 excavator with OEM takeuchi tracks, ~800 hours on them, tread is still 90%+ but the drive links have started to rip out of one of the tracks. I bought some cheap Ebay tracks to put on it as replacements.

Have a Deere 35d also with chinese tracks on it. I think the excavators you can better get away with the cheap ones.
