New style add on tracks
New rubber-coated steel cleat half tracks can be added to any tractor, combine, swather or other equipment.
The Dario tracks have a double bogie wheel that's mounted on a tightener arm that bolts to the axle of the wheel they're mounted on. With the rear end of the tractor jacked up, the tracks slip on over the wheels and then the arm is tightened to hold the tracks securely in place. Unlike steel cleats, the rubber-coated cleats can be driven over the road. And because of the easy-mount design, they can be mounted or dismounted with ease, unlike other add-on tracks which are often left in place when not needed because they're so difficult to install, ac-cording to company representative Pierre-Jean Cosmao.
A set of tracks sells for $11,000. The tracks are also available with steel cleats, which sell for $8,600.
