    I got some pictures from Dale(KRTraxx) of the new Solideal tracks for the VTS. He thought there was not as much vibration as the old track patterns. I'll be curious how these wear and what the cost comes too.

    holy shet he lives!!!!!! i saw your machine with the vts on back in the spring, nice rig.

    i dont know about those solideal tracks though, i find the insides tend to chunk out alot. I know my new set did and i dont have but a hundred hours on them and have never run them in any crushed stone.

    shoot i re-read that, if you havnt bought them i would highly advise you not to. I have a nice little pile of solideal tracks with 90% or better tread that are useless sitting by the shop.

    im gona go with the cheap ones on ebay for a grand a pop. at that rate i could do a set a year and not walk with a limp.

    I probably am a year or two from needing replacement tracks but I like the tread of these Solideals. We will see how they last for the guys that are getting them now. I wanted to go through my VTS this winter and sandblast/paint and just check them out but will wait till next winter. I do think the front torsion thingy is wearing out some so that will get replaced at that time to.

    Good luck with the Solid deals, cheap, cheap rubber, those are the exact same tracks as our nursery customer had on their T300 and they only lasted 600 hours, the steel imbeds either broke or bent and the rubber chunked big time.

    But hey, at least they saved $1000!

    Look good for year round but I like the classic pattern for earth work. Been waiting for Dale to get back to me now for a month on a price for replacement tracks so I have a set around for when mine do go.

    We don't use the solideal tracks. Have them on a case 440 series 3.

    Nice, you have the right brand and a S3 even! You can't get Picasso to try PowerTan?

    You have the narrow track VTS, how do you like them? How wide are they? Do you feel like you can get the power to the ground?
