Need something way more durable than rubber tracks for your Kubota 121-3 excavator? We have steel tracks in stock that are designed around your rubber track undercarriage. No need to change anything but the tracks (or maybe your operator) and off you go. Currently they have rubber pads bolted to the steel shoe but if you don't need the rubber pads we'll take them off at no charge. Continue reading

Thinking about replacing a full set of rubber tracks for your Komatsu PC40-7? If you're working primarily on asphalt and concrete and you want maximum life out of your tracks then you should consider switching to these bad boys: If you think they are going to be expensive you're wrong and they're going to be way more durable and less likely to breaking from operator error. Continue reading

It's not going to be an exact match so if you're looking for a cheap conversion option you can switch from steel tracks over to rubber tracks without changing the rollers, sprockets and idlers. Measure pin to pin and it should come out to about 4". If it does you're off to a good start. Your bottom rollers should run no problem when you switch from steel to the offset steel pins in the rubber track. God a question about this?

NEW PRODUCT: To complete our line of track systems we are now adding roadliners. We have two sets that arrived in our container this week. Rubber Tracks are excellent on asphalt, concrete and light construction. Steel tracks with bolt on rubber pads are excellent for most environments but come into their own in heavy construction sites and have slight disadvantages in the city. Roadliners are an all purpose set up. The rubber compound encases the steel shoe and is bolted to the chain. Main advantage comes in city work. There is no steel wall (from the steel track with bolt on pad setup) to worry about when turning the machine and banging into concrete or stone kerbs/walls. Then when the machine needs to be in a harsher environment you don't have to worry about the track ripping in half through operator error. If you break the shoe you replace the shoe not the whole system. We're going to discount these two sets to get them out the door and on the job site for feedback. Sets will fit Takeuchi TB145 and Komatsu PC45 and 50 mini excavators. Call us 360-906-0109.

This DX60 excavator is becoming more popular around British Columbia and down here in Washington and Oregon. The undercarriage is slightly longer than the Bobcat 337 but very similar. So, we've increased our inventory on that track dimension. Because the undercarriage is slightly longer we've never carried the steel track conversion. Not now. If you're done with rubber tracks and are looking for a cost effective way to conver from rubber to steel give us a call. We have steel that'll work with your current rollers, sprockets and idlers. And, if you want rubber pads we can install very quickly to the pre-drilled holes on the shoe. For more info please visit or visit the steel site at DX60 Steel Continue reading

We have sold a significant amount of VIQAN tracks to fit the Leeboy 8515 pavers. The 8515 and 8510 are the same track dimension. Here is some feedback from our customers: "Finding and recieving the tracks was very easy and painless, the tracks were exactly what we wanted in a short time. The tracks seemed to hold up better then the originals for all the skidding around our pave crew does in tight areas. Great tracks for a lot less cost." There have been zero returns or complaints. Well, the only complaint is putting paver tracks on. Way worse than track loader tracks! Leeboy Pavers at VIQAN Continue reading
