    I have Prowler EXT Tracks. Stock suck for the snow. Really is a world of difference.

    I'd like to see some more/better pics if your setup. I passed on buying a Tak purely for the fact of the tracks. They need to make the polar tracks for Taks.

    Nice Pic! You should check out the Kage Klawz if you want some real traction:)

    How do the tracks work on snow?
    Any loss of traction?

    Those look a lot like tires, not TRACKS

    Hello,

    My first year using skids to plow - what makes these better? Are they just retreads? How much do they cost?

    Thank you.

    Yeah, I thought they were some type of tracks.

    Thanks for putting up the picture Kristin.

    TheSnowMan8611- They are a full steel radial tire. Each tire is rated for around 4,000lbs. This helps eliminate the "bounce" in the machine. They will also give you more clearance, your machine will go faster, and a smaller foot print (so more pounds per inch). They should increase your efficiency by at least 20%, but it will feel like 50%. It is the classic scenario where you have always had enough horsepower, but never enough traction. These tire kits will make all the difference in the world. You will actually stall the engine out before you lose traction.

    They are a retread tire, but the nice thing about that is when you wear them out in 4-6 seasons, you will be able to just retread the tire again for much less money. The rim is basically a life time rim. You can tell how heavy duty they are by just looking at the pictures. It is a full steel plate that is welded all the way around. We can make them for any machine on the market. The rims come in 19.5 and 22.5 sizes and the tires come in 225, 245, and 255 sizes. We will match your machine with the correct Kage Klawz Kit.

    Prices vary depending on what kit you need and your location. Please contact info@kageinnovation.com or call 651-433-4628 for more information.

    Those tires look a lot like my kit from Westside tire for my s750
