Rubber Tracks for Tractors
Hear first-hand from North Dakota farmer, Tim Berntson, as he shares how Firestone Ag tracks have improved the performance of his equipment.
AG TRACK TECH
Exposed track edges are more vulnerable in the field. Firestone’s optimum sidewall protection technology strengthens our rubber tracks to reduce damage by minimizing stress and bending.
TOUGH & FLEXIBLE STEEL CABLE
A precise balance of tensile strength, flexibility, and durability helps these cables meet the demands of high-horsepower farm equipment.
RUBBER TRACK STRUCTURE
Tread bars and main carcass are vulcanized as a single piece, binding it together for a seamless molded radius. The rubber compound was developed to provide added wear resistance.
Like the tread bars, our guide lugs are vulcanized seamlessly with the main carcass, incorporating a wear resistance compound for added durability.
Inside, a specially-formulated rubber compound offers additional cut resistance for the roller path area.
Adjusting the alignment is one of the most important procedures to prolong the life of the rubber tracks. Each track will have a different tendency in terms of tracking performance and is likely to change during its service life. Tracking performance is related to many of the following factors:
- • Undercarriage frame
- • Assembly quality
- • Tolerance of components
- • Wear of components and aging deterioration
- • Track gauge
- • Camber effect
- • Difference in weight distribution between the inside and outside of the tractor
- • Track width
- • Uneven tread wear
