A 120 with a long stick and thumb is going to be tippy. I think the 130 size machine is a better match for a long stick and thumb.
I will be looking forward to your thoughts on the McLaren VTS track. There are getting to be more and more companies making VTS tracks, thats good. Looks like parts of ND are going to flood again. You will likely need the VTS.That looks exactly like mine did. Did the same thing too was slipping tightened it up, started slipping 3 hours later tightened it some more then an hour later was torn all the way across luckily got it loaded on the trailer and back to the shop. I chose to go with the Mclarens have not used them yet as mine went right at the end of the year and ended up putting the tires back on it for moving snow, should be putting them back on in about 3 to 4 weeks so I can give a review of the nex-gen TDF track pattern.
Couple notes if you have not got instructions from someone else for installing. You need to unbolt the vts from the machine and take it completely off for install. You have to remove the front idler hub to get the front tensioner to lay all the way down and then the track will go on in 2 minutes. You will need a big breaker bar, and probably still a cheater pipe, I cant remember what size socket to get the front hub out but the nut is torqued to 750 ft Lbs from the factory. To make it easier I also just cut my old bands off with a sawzall as they would never be going back on anyways, before I unbolted the system from the machine no use fighting an old track anymore then you have to.
I don't think it matters. At least I hope not.Can you really do that or does the whole undercarriage have to change? I need the float with all the mud up here but Im not a big fan of the width and neither does my trailer.
