When it comes to purchasing used rubber tracks, think about wear, application, budget and warranty.


Used tracks have a percentage of life remaining. Be sure to ask your product specialist how much life the track has left. Used tracks don’t have warranty so ensure that you are aware of how many hours you are going to get from it.


Think about where you will be using the track. The terrain the track will be used in can affect whether you choose to go with a used track. If tread is important for tough working conditions, look at the tread and see how worn it is. Some used tracks are brand new, but the tread on others may be worn down compromising the traction of the track.


Used tracks are a great option when working with a tight budget. When requesting a quote for tracks, inquire with the product specialist whether there is a used track available for your machine. If there is a used track, it could have a high life remaining and be a fraction of the cost of a new track.


If you are concerned about warranty issues, it is highly advisable to go with a new track.

Always ask for photos when ordering used tracks. Photos will give a great visual so you can be sure the product is perfect for your application.
