    Exactly this I have had our 90 pushing dirt rolling over the top of the blade and she was still going ( I was having fun with it I will admit)

    I'm sitting in the cab of the 277C right now, 515 hrs, time flies and the tracks are near new. Taken care of and maintained, they will last 1000+ hours. But I'd rather have a CTL track system though, these MTL's spit rocks in the air when working in round stone.

    I'm confused Ron, which one is it? Getting beat up, or near new?

    Tracks are near new, rollers are beat up.

    Look closer, it's so obvious, you'd think that after 2 years, people would just look closer.

    ya i can see they are different but Im no mechanic, equipment engineer here. I see the bogies and idlers are more protected now. Are all the unpainted ones bad news?
