There is a massive amount of information that you can find out about the rubber tracks your buying for your mini excavator, skid steer loader or even your dumper. It's important to know the configuration, the pitch, the rubber compound and even the steel used in the internal cord. Any reputable rubber track distributor will have this information listed on their website , brochures and be able to tell you over the phone.
Don't get us wrong, this is very important information to know about the hefty investment your about to make. So after you've done your research and picked your supplier - what information about your rubber tracks do you need to give them?
Your track size or track number
This is commonly found stamped on the inside of every rubber track and is generally universal. Don't be alarmed if the supplier you have chosen has a different number on the invoice they send you. Most companies have their own internal part numbers, much like Bobcat would have a different number at
Deer and Ditch Witch - but your getting the same thing.
Your machine model and make
If you can't find your track number or your not in a position to check it then no problem. Simply tell your supplier the machine your running (Bobcat, Hyundai, Terex, Komatsu etc) and the model (T190 and etc). It will be reasonably easy to track down the track you need with this information.
So, using the example above it could be quite easy for the incorrect track to be supplied without the proper information being provided. When in doubt, have a closer look at the compliance stamp on your machine which will have the full machine model number.
This one seems a bit obvious, but it's still very crucial. Are you only buying one rubber track or both? You will be surprised how often this information is over looked!
If you are having issues just reach out to the local supply shop.
