On the Bobcat (or like mini) excavators you have the option of getting steel tracks or rubber tracks. I have used both,and have noticed that the steel does not tear up the asphalt like most think, only leave white scratch marks with the small cleats. Just wondering, what is th benifet of using (what I think) the cheaper and weaker rubber tracks? Around here the majority use rubber tracks, my shop is the only that uses the steel around here. A couple things that I can think that rubber would be better if (hope I don't JINX myself)the track sliped off, then it would be easier to get back on. Or a job on a fine landscape e.g golf course. Your experiances or opinions?
