Articulating Track Drive Benefits

  • Designed to help prevent stuck drive units.
  • Weight is distributed over a wider area than other tire options to minimize ground pressure.
  • By lowering ground pressure, soil compaction and rut depth are minimized.
  • Easily maneuver through varying field conditions.
  • Tracks and tires maintain contact with the ground and follow sudden changes in field terrain.

Articulating Track Drive Features

  • Improved stability: Wider wheel base improves span stability on rolling ground and in windy conditions
  • Improved span alignment: Set of four braces on each side improves span alignment and balances the load when crossing deep ridges
  • Minimizes ground pressure: Heavy-duty base beam and steel tracks distribute weight over a wider area than other tire options
  • Increased traction: Helps prevent stuck drive units
  • Increased flotation: Tracked drive unit with longer wheel base and lower ground pressure minimizes soil compaction and rut depth
  • Rough ground-ready: Maneuvers through varying field conditions
  • Conforms to varying terrain: Articulating drive base beams keep both tracks or tires on the ground, even across sudden changes in field terrain
  • Longer life: Two center drives reduce motor load for longer life
  • Easy conversion: Retrofits to existing Valley drive units
