Improvements in Crawler Tractor Traction 810925

An entirely new crawler has been developed based on analysis of how better traction with less travel reduction can be achieved for a crawler tractor. Tractive performance is considerably improved on rock or other hard surfaces. The new crawler shows 30% higher traction at only 5% reduction in travel compared with less traction and more travel reduction (20 to 100% slip ratio) for a conventional crawler tractor, on a concrete surface. In addition, ride is more comfortable and there is less noise from the undercarriage.
