Kelderman Tracks For 4-WD Tractors
Kelderman's "high drive" row crop rubber tracks are now available for big 4-WD tractors. The company introduced its new rubber track system at farm shows this fall mounted on a Deere 8640 4-WD tractor.
The same tracks can also be used on a combine.
The add-on assemblies mount in place of both front and rear wheels. The track assembly's large dia. drive wheel bolts onto the hub. A new "dual mount" hub allows the tracks to be switched from a tractor axle to a combine's 10-bolt wheel hub. A specially designed spindle bolts onto the combine's final drive.
The `high drive' row crop rubber tracks use a large diameter drive wheel that allows operation of the tractor at near-normal speeds," says Gary Kelderman. "An air ride suspension system improves the ride. The tracks are cost efficient because you can use them on your existing equipment without having to spend $150,000 for a specially designed tractor, and because you can use them on your combine at harvest.
The track assembly fits most 4-WD tractors as well as most combines."
