For BCS two wheel tractor models 749 and up and for the model 660 Hydrostatic, BCS now offers a variety of tracks that can be installed. These add excellent traction for working in difficult areas, such as along hillsides or wet terrain. Several of the tracks feature a significant speed reduction that increase the effectiveness of various soil working implements, including plows and dozer blades. See below for more detail on each type of track.
Tracks for use with BCS models 749 and up
High-Speed Rubber Tracks (model Z24P28) — These tracks enable you to mow at higher speeds with increased traction in hard-to-access areas, such as along hillsides or on wet terrain. The High Speed Rubber Tracks weigh 167 pounds and have a 10% speed reduction.
High-Speed Rubber Tracks with Studs (model Z24P28AG) — Similar to the tracks listed above, these also feature steel studs, which help prevent slippage when traversing across sloped terrain in wet or wintery conditions. These tracks weigh 172 pounds and have a 10% speed reduction.
Steel Tracks (model DX700) — With a weight of 191 pounds and a 55% speed reduction, these tracks give excellent traction and increased pulling power for use with soil-working implements, such as the Dozer Blade, the Root Digger and Moldboard Plows. These tracks also work well on stony soils.
Tracks for Model 660 Hydrostatic ONLY
The following tracks are only for use with the model 660.
Rubber Tracks (EDR) — These tracks weigh 198 pounds and have a 40% speed reduction. They are good for use in hard-to-reach and sloped areas.
