rubber tracks for mini diggers and excavators

Rubber Tracks Versus Rubber Pads

As a market leading supplier of spare parts for excavators to the plant hire and construction industry, we often get asked by customers as to the benefits of rubber tracks versus rubber pads.

More and more manufacturers are offering their diggers on Steel tracks and rubber pads rather than on rubber tracks which is the more traditional option.  This is particularly the case on excavators from 7 ton upwards.

Rubber tracked excavators first made their debut in the early 80’s and became popular due to their compact size and adaptability.  As machines became more popular, the rubber track industry was also developed. Buy your rubber tracks here

Early rubber tracks were made in a long length, then the ends were overlapped and joined.  This initially caused issues with the rubber track pulling apart under extreme tension.

More recent advances have led to the tracks being manufactured as a continuous loop (Sometimes known as Jointless Track Technology or J-track), which eliminated the risk of the tracks pulling apart. Our latest designed rubber tracks also encompass smooth ride technology bringing you upto date with modern advances.

Some advantages to consider

Some of the benefits of machines fitted with rubber tracks are as follows:

  • Relative low cost
  • Quick to change
  • Lighter weight for situations where weight is a constraint
  • Smoother tracking, particularly on smaller excavators

Some of the disadvantages of rubber tracks are as follows:

  • Once a rubber track snaps, it cannot be repaired like a steel track can
  • Rubber tracks can be difficult to dispose of due to environmental legislation

Some benefits of rubber pads

  • Steel tracks with Rubber pads can last longer than rubber tracks on larger machines
  • Rubber pads can be fitted to bigger machines to offer the option to track on finished surfaces

Mini digger rubber track supplier

Our rubber tracks are designed and manufactured with cutting edge technology to ensure you get the best products available. orginially tracks were designed in the conventional style with sizes such as 300x109x41  these could only be used on undercarraiges that were exclusively designed to use rubber tracks. On this stye of track the rollers do not have contact with the metal guiding except for the purpose of guidance and derail protection. From the nature of these machines each was designed to run on either rubber track or steel track design ( but not both)  so the sprockets idlers and top and bottom rollers are different.
