Camso Unveils Narrow Track System at Farm Show
Camso Inc. is introducing a narrow TTS (Trailed Track System) 40 Series and roading track at the National Farm Machinery Show in Louisville, Ky., Feb. 10-13, 2016.
In time for the 2016 planting season, the company says its Camso TTS 40 series brings a new narrow track solution for high capacity, row crop applications. It allows a row crop farmer to put heavy, high capacity planters and fertilizer applicators into the field with half the contact points compared to dual tire configurations. Benefits are up to 70% ground pressure reduction, fewer pinch rows, less soil compaction and the ability to better utilize controlled traffic practices in their fields, according to Camso.
The TTS 40 Series can run at speeds of up 15 mph (24km/hr) and is currently available in two widths: 15 inches for 20-22-inch rows and 18 inches for 30-inch rows.
Camso is also introducing a new roading track for row crop tractors. The company says it promises to be the longest lasting product on the market, boosting lifetime performance by up to 20% compared to its predecessor.

Camso designs, manufactures, and distributes of off-road tires, wheels, rubber tracks and undercarriage systems to serve the material handling, construction, agricultural and powersports industries.
The company hosted a training and product demonstration for dealers in September 2015 in Charlotte, N.C., where Mike Dembe, market development manager for Camso's construction division, said a majority of commercial tire dealers in North America are selling rubber tracks.
“Half to two-thirds of tire dealers in North America are in the rubber track business. They are selling tracks to the same people they would be selling tires to. It’s an add-on sale. Tracks have come on board in a huge way the last 10 years. Many, and I’m going to say most, commercial tires dealers today are involved in some level with rubber tracks.”
The company offers rubber tracks which can be installed over tires on skid steer machines. For details, see “Camso Launches Mobile-Friendly Training Program for Dealers.”
