Mattracks has track conversion systems available that will fit 4x4 vehicles as small as a Suzuki Samurai to full-size extra heavy duty trucks like a Ford F550. Mattracks also has the Trail-R-Mate systems available for utility trailers, as well as agricultural and industrial tractors up to 100 horsepower. If you need it tracked, Mattracks is your cost efficient solution! Mattracks also has Mattracks LiteFoot ATV Track Conversions for 4X4 ATVs and LiteFoot Trail-R-Mates for light duty utility trailers.
Depending on the year, make and model of your 4 wheel drive vehicle, some alterations may be needed for proper track clearance. In some cases, removal or trimming of mud flaps, bumpers or running boards is needed. Body or suspension lifts can also provide the needed clearance for track operation.
Installing Mattracks on your vehicle is as straight forward and about as easy as changing tires! You jack up your vehicle and remove the tire, and simply bolt the Mattracks track assembly to the wheel studs. Adapter brackets are required once installed, there is one more bolt for the anti-torque linkage for each corner, and that is it! You’re all set to go.
The time needed for initial installation of the anti-torque linkage brackets, and a simple alignment of the linkage brackets will depend upon your vehicle, tools and mechanical abilities of the installer.
With Mattracks, you really not going through it… you’re going on top of it! You see, Mattracks has a unique ability to reduce ground pressure. When you reduce ground pressure, you travel on top where the going is easy!
Mattracks large surface area (26 square feet) will allow you to travel on snow, mud, sand, swamp, or bogs with ease! A standard truck with tires will exert up to 40 psi of down pressure on its tire contact area. A person standing will exert 6 to 8 psi of down pressure. The Mattracks system on a vehicle has as low as 1.5 psi of down pressure. This eliminates compaction and ruts.
Never travel faster than the conditions or terrain warrant! On a hard surface, Mattracks can travel at high rates of speed for short distances. We recommend not exceeding 40 mph.
Because there is a natural gear reduction, (the drive sprocket is 2/3 the size of your original tire) the power to run the tracks is about the same as required to turn the original tires. With tracks when your speedometer reads 60 mph, you are actually traveling approximately 40 mph.
Mattracks has over 100 different models available to match your needs. The price is dependent on the vehicle application.
The Mattracks System is SIX to THIRTY-THREE times less expensive than a dedicated full tracked vehicle. And you can use a vehicle that you already own or have in inventory!
