    Looks like some 48" swamp pads. I've seen a 130 jcb with 60" pads before, that was insane. I have 36" pads on my big machines and they do not like to turn on dry ground without jacking it up and swinging. I could only imagine those LOL

    they're factory made now in the uk rather than aftermarket updates. they build them on the undercarriage from the 21 tonner, feature on them in this months earthmover magazine they weigh in at about 21 tons though but very low footprint.

    few years ago they featured a jcb js130 on plastic 2 metre pads used to harvest peat in ireland

    All the width, if they were smart, they would run a set of half rails on the outside of the pads, keeps the links from twisting.
