    Have a 287B that needs some bogies and idler wheels replaced. Also some drive sprocket repairs. Tracks still look OK for now.

    Has anyone actual experience with the aluminum replacement wheels and/or grease tentioner from Bair Products??

    Any other third-party products out there that anyone knows of or actually used for CAT or ASV?

    Looking for any good input......Thanks, Rip

    First of all, it sounds like you have a Multi Terrain Loader and not a CTL. There is a big difference between the two, especially when it comes to the undercarriage and suspension.

    I would look into getting Bair's front and rear rollers only, but the rear steel rollers (if they are available for the large U/C's) would be a better option. With the price of aluminum, you never know, scrap thieves are very crafty.
