    I love cruising around on www.catused.com and looking at all the old Cat MTL's and looking at the pics of the damage to the tracks.

    Here's a few of my favourites:

    The best pic I ever saw was on an original 247 with over 6000 hrs, tracks were worn down smooth, right down to almost the nylon, and others I have seen all have a characteristic wear pattern where the roller wheel ride on, it's very odd too see that.

    No, these are the pics of the tracks on the machines they (Cat) is selling off as used, but more like "ab"-used!

    yeah t300 he is going to go with.. your right this **** is exspensive on these tracks. my opinion dont ever buy a track machine unless 75% of the time your in the mud sand or on dirt

    This is a common complaint with any track system, I have seen 3 pics (forgot to save those pics) of CTL tracks with really good damage done and it all comes down to the idiot behind the controls and the care of the tracks.
