Tracks Are Specifically Engineered for Compact Track Loaders

Staff | September 28, 2010

The NextGen TDF™ series, a patent-pending line of heavy-duty rubber tracks crafted specifically for compact track loaders, have been engineered to counteract cracks, cuts and wear better than traditional tracks while also providing a smoother ride.

Traditionally, small cracks and cuts in a set of tracks continue to expand, causing further damage and decreasing service life. With McLaren's new Crack and Cut Quarantine System, a unique rubber formula incorporated in the series contains minor damage before it can spread, extending the tracks' service life.

NextGen TDF tracks are specifically designed to handle the workload of a rubber track loader. The enhanced rubber formula and belt system also give the series an advantage over traditional tracks. The company's proprietary rubber compound formula extends the service life of the tracks and additionally, McLaren's SpoolRite Belting, a continuous belt system, dramatically increases the tracks' tensile strength, making the tracks more durable.

A unique tread pattern contributes to the series' longevity while improving the ride. Tracks have been designed to protect the body by limiting exposure and the series incorporates multiple lugs per pitch, rather than the standard single lug. This, combined with the tread's double offset pattern, enhances the ride while minimizing vibration that can damage the undercarriage. The tracks are backed by a full one-year warranty.
