How To Choose The Right Rubber Tracks [A Guide]

mini excavator rubber tracks

No matter how consistently operators perform daily inspections of their rubber track equipment and adhere to the manufacturer’s preventive maintenance schedules, owners will find themselves with the need for track replacement. But, what should they look for in replacement rubber tracks?

The answer can vary depending on how customers use their equipment. For instance, a construction contractor who uses a compact track loader all day, every day in extreme job site conditions might find great value from a rubber track that a family farmer doesn’t need. 

Our sales reps are experts who can set you up with your best value based on your equipment, your operational requirements, and your goals. 

Here’s a quick look at some of the factors they’ll want to cover with you.

1. Inspection

First things first. Let’s start by checking the undercarriage for worn or damaged parts that might have contributed to the reason we’re replacing tracks. 

If you find any issues like worn sprockets, frozen or stuck rollers, or leaking idlers now is the time to replace those, preventing premature wear or failure issues of your new tracks.

2. Fit 

Our replacement tracks are guaranteed to OEM specifications. We simply need to know the make, model, and sometimes serial number, to match the correct tracks to your machine.

3. Lug pattern

Our two most common tread patterns are our C-block and Z-block tread patterns. 

The C-block is less aggressive. That means while it might have slightly less traction, it’s better for use on fragile working surfaces such as dirt, gravel, and grass. The Z-block, on the other hand, has better traction, but being more aggressive, it can be a little rougher on the ground than the C-block. The Z-block is the perfect choice for snow and mud.

4. Source

There are numerous rubber track manufacturers to choose from. 

The best value rubber tracks are generally those from a reputable dealer/distributor—like Dominion Equipment Parts. Our more than 20 years of experience has given us the chance to find the best quality replacement rubber tracks on the market. 

We stand behind the tracks we sell with a 6-month warranty on tracks for Skid Loaders and Dump Carriers and a 1-year warranty for Excavator and Mini-Excavator tracks.
