IdealTrax Automatic Track Tensioning System

IdealTrax™ Automatic Track Tensioning System

The IdealTrax™ Automatic Track Tensioning System is an industry exclusive system that ensures proper track tensioning upon engine start up and operation, saving the required 10-15 minute track re-tensioning recommended every 50 hours.

By eliminating over-tensioning and releasing track tension when the engine is turned off, track life is extended by up to 15 percent. This system saves the owner substantial maintenance and track replacement costs over the life of the machine.

Less Downtime Puts Money in Your Pocket

  • Eliminates the need for manually tensioning the tracks on the loader before operation, saving valuable time on the job site.
  • Increase the life of tracks (up to 15%* in tested conditions), sprockets and bearings by ensuring the proper tension immediately upon start-up and during use, and tension release when the machine is shut down.
  • Track changes in the field are facilitated with the simple flip of a switch in the rear compartment. Removing a track without the IdealTrax™ system can take up to one hour per track. With IdealTrax™, it takes minutes.
*Track life improvement varies greatly depending on conditions, application and up-keep; results may vary.
