THE USE of the Camso rubber track system has been approved by John Deere for use on its Gator utility vehicles in Europe, following their availability in the US for several years.

Designed to extend the versatility and all year round use of these popular ATVs, the tracks reduce ground pressure by up to 75% to less than 1 psi and take less than two hours to install in place of the wheels, with no other modifications required.

Track widths are 318mm (12.5in) in front and 356mm (14in) at the rear, and they are steered, which means minimise soil scuffing when off-road.

The tracks are manufactured in Canada by the same company that supplies units for John Deere’s 8R, 9R and new 9RX four-track Series agricultural tractors.

Price of the Camso UTV T4S track system, which is available to order from the John Deere dealer network, is around £3750, plus VAT.
