    Track kit?

    I came across a company that makes track kits for utv's as well as tractors in the 3 series and larger. It sorta got me thinking how cool would it be a have a track kit for a 1 series. It'd be awesome to drag logs out of the woods in the winter not to mention how much better it could be at plowing snow. Anyone know of anyone who might make something that fits our tractors?

    They are a set of 4 tracks - not 2 like you'd have on a bulldozer.

    That's the pic I've seen that really got the gears spinning, I wonder who makes those.

    My dealer has a Gator with tracks on it sitting outside. They put them together for guys that do a lot of ice fishing. Never seen them on a CUT before. I wonder how much they weigh compared to tires. Not like you can add wheel weights or fluid to them.

    I have a set on one of my 4-wheelers. The salesman said they would go through just about anything... He was wrong. They will go OVER anything. I can go places that my snowmobile can only dream about! They are ok in the mud as long as the mud is on the thicker side. They are wonderful in the sand. I was told not to drive on hard surfaces or turn sharply though because the machine needs to be in 4-wheel-drive all the time the tracks are on it. Because of this, I'm not sure if they would be a good idea on a tractor. What about only putting them on the back to make a half-track? Tire chains would probably work just as well for a tenth the price.

    That being said, they certainly look really cool.

    Somebody would have to convince me hands down that those things, 4 or just rears, would be any better than conventional chains on a 1XXX tractor. The more surface applied to snow the less traction is generated. It's like making a machine "lighter" and for plowing snow that's not so good. Now, 1" carbide spikes sticking out of them... then we can talk. A perfect 10 on the "Cool Factor Scale" though!!
