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... Good job, keep it up. " - Mike Essenpreis (John Deere 325 skid steer loader);                                                                                           "The salesman helped me quite a bit with the sizing issue." - Dennis Weiss (Bobcat Model 100);                                                                                         "I appreciate the after sales follow up."  - Eagle Golf Inc.

Machine: CAT 226B, ID 2004 

Tire condition at 1680 work hours 
Tread depth wear: approx.18 mm
At 1680 hours work on CAT 226B the McLaren tires have 20 mm tread which is approximately 50%.
Nu-Air DT tires on CAT 226B_1680h


At approximately 100 work hours on CAT 246 on concrete and solid abrasive surfaces the McLaren tires have produced 0 downtime and only 4 mm wear out. At 1680 hours work on CAT 226B the McLaren tires have approximately 50% remaining tread. Despite the harsh terrain and temperature conditions the McLaren's skid steer tires have exceeded customer's expectations. During the use of the Nu-Air tires there were no replacement or maintenance costs leading to 100% utilization of the equipment. An average saving of 40% per hour was achieved over the life of the McLaren tyres compared to the pnematic OEM equivalent.
