Rubber Tracks vs Steel Tracks: The Benefits of Both

There are plenty of benefits when it comes to rubber Trojan Tracks. Compared to steel tracks, rubber tracks work well on grass and dirt, but when the weather conditions are wet and muddy, steel tracks work better because they offer more traction.

Let’s compare the two:

What’s the more affordable track?

Up front, rubber tracks cost much less, but in the long run, they have to be replaced more often if you’re using them quite a bit. Steel tracks are more durable, which means they last longer, but the cost up front is greater.

More Efficient?

For more efficient work, rubber tracks reduce vibration, which means they drive much faster than steel tracks. Also, when there is lower vibration, it leads to longer life. Less maintenance for your tracks will cut costs in the future.

Noise?

Rubber tracks are the winner in this one. Steel tracks create a loud clattering when they’re driven, but rubber tracks are quiet.
