    Anyone using the bridgestone polar tracks on there skid steer? Just looking around right now trying to figure out what to do. We have a c190 new holland and not happy with the regular tracks.

    I just put a set on a T190 Bobcat 2day. Very anxious to try them out.

    Bird21(member here) has some sets and has put some hours on them. He, among others that I have talked to, said they are WELL worth it.

    We run the polar's on a case 420CT-3 and there is a night and day difference between those and the stock tracks of our 440CT-3. I would be willing to say that the polar tracks offer better traction than any wheeled skid I've ever operated Thumbs Up

    We do the Holiday station on north university, one of your guys cut through the lot in a cat loader last time we were cleaning, if it was you, or not, have him flag me down and give the machine a go.

    Got to try mine out this a.m.(got about 3-4 in of wet stuff) I will tell you this - I was pushing a 10ft pusher w/ bobcat T190, full of wet snow, 300 - 400ft with ease. Very Very happy with them. They are everything I hoped for and more.

    I had a set for my T650 delivered yesterday.

    Based on snocrete's advice.

    Didn't know he was banned.

    I paid just under 2k for a set for our T190 last November. Shipping was $85.

    For guys that want an "all around track" for landscaping & snow, those are great. But I have done side by side comparisons with those and polars...let me put it this way, there is no comparison. So if your looking for a dedicated snow track, currently there is no other option out there that performs like they do....and for under $2000 (I paid just over $1800 tax & delivery included about a month ago) they are well worth it.

    Wow....I haven't been here for a long time and all of the sudden I come back and you guys are dragging all my old threads out of the dirt. lol We are running the camoplast "B" pattern track pretty much since the day I started this thread...so that would be about 6 years. Its the squiggly z bar pattern as I call it. We have been very happy with them in snow. Can out push most anything if you have Ice underneath. I have never tried the polar track though so I don't know the difference. The machine mainly gets used for snow and doesn't do much summer work so the tracks are holding up well for us.
