ContiTech Designs New Rubber Tracks for High Horsepower Tractors
Continental Corp.’s ContiTech division is introducing an enhanced version of its Trackman brand rubber tracks at the 2017 Farm Progress Show in Decatur, Ill., Aug. 29-31.
ContiTech says new Armorlug Ultra rubber tracks are designed to operate on the highest horsepower tractors in the industry.
“One of our goals is to develop tracks that enable the larger implements to take advantage of more horsepower and address the needs of tomorrow, today,” says Rob Schultz, Continental’s product manager for rubber tracks. “More horsepower means hauling larger implements. Larger implements mean less time in the field, and less time in the field means happy farmers.”
The new Armorlug Ultra incorporates a patented manufacturing process that embeds three fabric layers into the drive lugs, including one that is continuous.
“This gives tractors better power transfer enabling farmers to handle the challenges they face,” says Schultz. “It’s engineered to withstand horsepower not yet available on today’s tractors intentionally to address tomorrow’s needs. And, in an age of constant pressure to over-deliver, Armorlug Ultra provides a more durable track, delivering up to 30% longer life than any other.”
