At the ConExpo show earlier this month, Bridgestone introduced a new line of rubber tracks designed for compact track loaders.
The Bridgestone Vortech line has an H-shaped tread pattern for a smoother driving experience and expanded edges to help grip the ground and improve traction in a variety of conditions including gravel, turf and sediment.
An optimized internal structure and a slightly thinner tread lowers the bending resistance that happens when rubber tracks pass over the main sprocket. This reduces engine power loss by 26 percent, according to the company.
The Bridgestone Vortech rubber tracks are available in 450 mm-wide sizes.
