    I have a VTS track system on my skid. Getting close to rubberband replacement. Are there aftermarket suppliers of tracks or do you have to buy Loegering? I checked on price from Loegering and they are pretty proud....for a 12" track for my Gehl 5640T they want $1,921 each plus freight. Any thoughts ideas out there? Ktraxx.......any thoughts?

    I talked to KR awhile ago and he might have some different brand or tread that was interesting. I know he has been crazy busy, will pm you his email if you want.

    I just got a set of replacement tracks from KRtraxx for my 59 link VTS system. He got me a pair of the Mclaren Nexgen TDF tracks. I think they are one of the first sets to go out for VTS systems. I have not driven with them yet. You have to unbolt the system to take the front hub out to get them on, and as much as I wanted to put them back on to drive them around and see how they were I just put the tires on for snow and will have to wait until March to see how they ride. The tracks look very nice though and should have a lot smother ride then the originals.

    Are those more like an ASV/Cat track? I have the old 'blocky' style and are rough when running two speed.

    He was quoted $1850 or so for 15" plus $300.00 shippinng. So 2K a piece. That is pretty steep. I have the 18" tracks so they would likely be more yet. I also want the new tread design if I go to the VTS OEM track. That old style blocky tread is a vibration producing tread.

    I watched the video, I agree with Swede I think I would rather have those. I would like to hear from someone who runs that track, it would appear to me that it would perform well in snow as well. What was the cost of these from Mc Laren?
