With the 4500 High Roading Tracks on the updated 2019 Rowtrac tractors, customers can travel up to 50% faster while pulling implements, when compared to the previous track generation. “Reduced travel time on the road means up to a 16% increase in productivity,” says Martin Lunkenbein, service and aftermarket sales executive director of agriculture at Camso.

“As the track market leader, we’re committed to help drive the evolution of farming, and support the needs of our customers,” says Lunkenbein.

These new tracks provide the tractor with the capacity to achieve roading speed of up to 25 mph on narrow tracks. “By combining the best rubber compounds with our unique process, we can offer the market the right track to the market for roading and row crop applications."

Camso says it continues to work on developing a broad range of tracks for all farming applications. “We offer tracks to increase mobility, flotation and reduce soil compaction. From field prep to planting, harvesting and transport, Camso tracks help producers maximize their work while lower operating costs,” says Lunkenbein.
