20% Longer Track Life
Camso, formerly Camoplast Solideal, has found a way to extend track life without changing track performance.
“Our new roading track will run 20% longer, yet there will be no difference in the ride in the field or on the road,” says Eric Blondeau, Camso. “There are quite a few complex factors taken into consideration that gave us this boost in track life, including the shape, design, and compounds used.”
By Camso’s estimate, the new roading track will provide farmers with the lowest operating cost solution by saving them 30% to 40% on their cost per hour compared to Camso’s closest track competitor.
The new track will debut on Case IH Rowtrac tractors because these narrow tracks operate in harsh conditions that demand tougher tracks. “This is the starting point, and we will introduce this technology to other product lines with similar conditions,” explains Blondeau. At least for the Case IH Rowtracs, Camso is not increasing the price of the tracks.
Camso is a Canadian company that has partnerships with most of the major OEMs in the ag market – John Deere, AGCO, Case IH, New Holland, and Claas – and Camso tracks come standard on multiple pieces of equipment, including the Case IH Quadtrac and John Deere’s 9RX.
