Exceptional service differentiates Mclaren from its competitors." - Rob Pagacz (Bobcat S300 skid steer loader);                                                                                            "Tires are still working out great. Tons of hours left on them!" - Levi McDermott (Mustang 2086 skid steer loader);                                                                                           "Made my bobcat work like a Cat dozer; Easy on off" - Roy Young (Bobcat S250 skid steer loader);                                                                                            "I think you make a superior product..." - Eric Wellish, (Case 1845C skid steer loader);                                                                                           "I really like the traction that I get from my tracks, and will most likely consider repurchasing when needed... I have the TDF series track." - Scott Robinson (Takeuchi TL 150 compact track loader);                                                                                           "Your Protrac rubber have saved me thousands of dollars! I rented a track machine for one month prior to having your tracks, that rental cost would have covered the cost of the McLarens. I was expecting to have bought a new machine, but there has been no reason to as the OTTs have added lift capacity, stability, a softer ride, and of course traction beyond my wildest expectations. My machine rep is not happy with your product, no sale for him... Could not be happier, literally!" - Simon Huxtable (Bobcat 763 skid steer loader);                                                                                            "The up front cost is greater than others but quality and performance far outweigh the cost." - Bearden Services (Bobcat S250 skid steer loader);                                                                                            "The sales rep that handled my purchase was knowledgeable, polite, and knew his product...

Ways To Reduce Operating Costs of CTL Tracks

Ways To Reduce Operating Costs of CTL Tracks

Compact track loaders are staples for many construction and landscaping companies. These important pieces of heavy machinery feature ultra-durable, high-flotation rubber tracks that allow them to traverse delicate surfaces and poor ground conditions. 

Types of CTL Tracks

There are various CTL tracks on the market. McLaren Industries offers a premium selection of skid steer tracks. Owners and operators can choose the right tracks for their application by considering the tracks’ tread patterns, tread sizes, and intended operating conditions.

  • NextGen™ Rubber Tracks are OEM-quality skid steer tracks that offer superior traction, comfort, durability in rocky conditions. These tracks are excellent for use on extreme terrains.

  • Maximizer™ Rubber Tracks are an affordable yet reliable option for skid steers and CTLs. These tracks feature reinforced steel belting and premium quality rubber for a durable, dependable, and accessible option.

CTL Tracks and Operating Costs

Like any piece of machinery, CTL tracks occasionally need replacement. However, replacements can cost money that isn’t in the budget. Fortunately, owners and operators have options. There are many ways to reduce operating costs of CTL tracks.

Choosing the Right Track for Your Environment

To minimize CTL track operating costs, choose the right track for the CTL’s primary working environment. Skid loader tracks have certain tread patterns and sizes ideal for different environments. Deep treads have maximum traction and are ideal for difficult and uneven terrain, while shallow treads are better suitable for hard surface applications. 

Choosing Quality Over Cost

While many operators consider upfront cost over long-term, this is a mistake when buying CTL tracks. Choosing cheaper skid steer tracks is more affordable in the short term, but these tracks require replacement relatively often. Choosing a higher-quality tracks from an established manufacturer, such as McLaren Industries, will save you money long term.

Prioritizing Maintenance

Maintaining your skid steer is one of the best ways to reduce operating costs. Like performing routine maintenance on technical components such as sprockets, the undercarriage, rollers, and idlers, reduce premature wear on your skid steer tracks. Maintenance is as simple as cleaning mud and debris off the undercarriage and tracks after every use.

Considerate Turns

If you take aggressive turns in your CTL, you will put extra stress on the machine and tracks. This contributes to increased operating costs; the more stress you put on the machine, the more wear and tear will result.

Safe Storage

Finally, a great way to keep operating costs down on your skid steer is to store it properly. Keeping the equipment and tracks out of direct sunlight prevents ozone damage, contributing to a premature track replacement.
