The G-Series of compact track loaders is adding updated rubber tracks

The modified tracks will feature a new arched roller path that will help shed debris on job sites and extend the roller path’s life. The manufacturer also updated the loaders’ steel cords to reduce bending stress and enhanced the metal core adhesive process.

“Machine uptime and durability are critical for owners and operators,” said Austin Verbeck, John Deere’s aftermarket marketing manager. “When updating the rubber tracks for the G-Series compact track loaders, we focused on key areas. From updated manufacturing processes to the reinforced steel cord, the result is a durable solution that is built to power through any job site.”

John Deere’s rubber tracks announcement comes on the heels several equipment advancements for the company, including its upgraded L-Series backhoe loaders, new technology in its GP-Series motor graders and new models of articulated dump trucks.
