    I've always used the mini ex to help lift and then have someone pry it on with a big bar. I'm not saying its not impossible to put a track on by yourself, but it ain't far from it:rolleyes:
    I'd con a friend over to help out!

    i was going to bring the 305 home to help but didnt need it to bad. they are hard to do but took me 30 minutes per side start to finish. just over a hour once i had to pump it back up with greese

    dont scold me on not cleaning out the mud it will be back five minutes after it gets back to work so i didnt bother.

    im not sure on how many hours they had, jdskidsteer would have to tell you that. they still had a lot of tread left as you can see, im not to happy. a steel cord should never break like that. now if it is rusted i can see that breaking but this wasnt at all. these better last.

    I did mine on my T190 with my dad, right on the trailer, no equipment was used, just an excavator to lift the tracks next to the machine. I take pity on anyone who had to do that in the bush in the mud or in the sun, I feel your pain.

    I just replaced mine. I went with the Landmaster tracks that have the Bridgestone pattern.

    Did you rotate your sprockets?
