    I take it those are Mclaren tracks?

    But if that was a Cat, you could have cleaned it with a spoon and a garden hose!!!!

    I never got around to trying the Mclarens, one local nursery has them on their T300 but they are wearing faster, but they are much smoother than the C lug OEM (Bridgestone) tracks they had.

    How do these tracks hold up in rocky conditions or rough, land clearing type conditions?

    I Never Take This Machine On Rocky Surfaces You Will Destroy The Tracks And Your Self With All The Vibration. This Machine Is Great In Mud And Dirt. Backfilling Always A Pleasure As Well, And The Machine Has Alot Of Power

    Any rock(s) bigger than 3 inches will chip and scratch the tracks PDQ, I once spent all day driving over 6" clear rock and I could see the metal cables in the tracks!

    what's clear rock? So, if there are rocks "here and there" but fairly substantial softball size, track loaders would be miserable to operate?
