    Where I was going with this, is that $2.17 per hour is easily made up in your extra production. Even for me, the only reason I want tires is for snow work but since there is no money in it anymore I might as well just go to the dark side full time.

    I bought the Camoplast tracks and when I sold the machine they were wearing well. I was happy with them and would buy again...good grip and rode descent. A lot of OEM dealers carry them now, so they must be holding up ok.

    Went with Bridgestone Polortread here and for me they are working great and showing better wear then originals one with the pad tread type.

    Mainly dirt work or more like mud work!!!! Better traction and the rougher tread is great in the mud ,but is also wearing very well in the dry hard dirt during the summer months here.I though the tread would be chunking out or worn badly.They still look good and close to a 1000 hours on them and a year old.

    I'm impressed for my use,others will vary i'm sure!

    I just watched the video on their website and they show a Takeuchi with what I can only presume is their tracks on.
