    Found this idea on CatUsed.com on a 299C for mulching, very neat guards on the sides of the undercarriage.
    You might need to pop them off if you need to squeeze through a narrow opening or something.

    As long as there is some UHMW or something between the steel and rubber it looks like a great idea.

    Thats pretty smart. That thing looks tough as hell with the winch on the back.

    I bet that keeps small stumps and stuff from pushing the track off while turning

    That hydrulic winch is pretty cool.

    I'm with you on the winch...nice set-up.

    The track guides don't do as much for me since they just reinforce the problems that CAT has with throwing tracks off of their CTLs on hillsides...it's a pretty well known secret out in the market.
