Track loader guys, who has used the polar treads?

    Ive seen these before.

    Now owning a machine with tracks, the first thing the guys said was its a pita to push as much when its slick out.

    When the rubber edge protech box cant scrape clean, theyre literally spinning on a thin layer of packed snow and ice, the standard tread that ive already powered through water and field mud with the other day loading salt pallets is almost dead in the water on icy parking lots :/

    The 8600lb Deere 319D had a hard time moving the 10' box when not even 3/4 full.
