How Specialized Rubber Track Patterns Improve Productivity
We’ve seen it far too often—a landscaper trying to maneuver a skid steer carefully without damaging someone’s yard, or a construction worker experiencing track slip in muddy conditions. In both scenarios, the worker’s productivity level diminishes. Thankfully, there’s a simple solution––specialized rubber track patterns. If you’d like to learn more about how specialized rubber track patterns improve productivity, continue reading our comprehensive guide below.
Choose a specific pattern for your application
If you’re looking to improve productivity, you should utilize specialized compact track loader rubber track patterns. By purchasing tracks designed for your application and by properly maintaining them, your machine will always perform at its best. We took the time to research and develop the largest number of track patterns on the market to ensure you have the best tracks for any particular job with your Compact Track Loader. For instance, if you’re a landscaper that needs turf-friendly tracks, we’ve got you covered with our Terrapin track with non-marking options. Choosing the wrong rubber track pattern for your compact track loader will create more work for yourself, reduce your machine’s fuel efficiency, and considerably reduce the life of the track.
The wrong pattern can significantly decrease your profitability
If your equipment is ineffective, your costs, depreciation, and diesel per hour will increase—not to mention any damages incurred on the property as well. For instance, if a landscaper is tearing up someone’s yard, they’ll incur the cost of replacing the turf. However, merely choosing the right track could alleviate this issue altogether. Similarly, if you don’t have the appropriate CTL track in muddy conditions, you’re going to experience a lot of track slip, which burns up fuel. By using specialized rubber track pattern as our NextGen™ Zig Zag pattern which offers superior traction in wet and muddy conditions, you’ll be able to optimize your machine’s efficiency and get the job done faster.
Specialized track patterns keep workers comfortable
In the construction and landscaping industry, many machine operators eventually find that they physically can’t work anymore due to back problems and other common injuries. That said, you can significantly improve a machine operator’s experience by merely equipping your compact track loader machinery with CTL rubber tracks that have the appropriate pattern. At McLaren, we recommend using our NextGen TDF™ tracks, which have multiple lugs per pitch. We engineer our CTL tracks with more lugs because they provide a smoother ride, less vibration, and reduce operator fatigue and back pain while still maintaining high traction and performance.
We’re recognized as the best rubber track manufacturer in the industry for several reasons. We use the highest quality materials available, such as our advanced rubber compound. Additionally, our rubber tracks are engineered to last with our proprietary SpoolRite Belting Technology™ to ensure even tension along your tracks at all times and superior durability.
