This has showed up on the "G" he has posted before but It would be nice if he would post some pictures of the manufacturing process, give us some build spec's and let us know about any product testing that has gone on.

I am coming into this late in the game & just picked up a 43 White that could use some new tracks . Has anybody looked at the line up of Excavator style or Skid Steer rubber tracks that are currently offered to see if there was a model that may fit ? I have tried to piece all of the various threads together on the possibility of new tracks being made but not sure there has been a concrete answer . We operate a Firearms distribution firm and may be interested in possibly investing or distributing tracks if they become a reality. Any info would be welcome , Thank You

Check out the G503 thread linked in the first post...it's currently 63 pages but that is the best way to get up to speed on the track mahonia turning endeavor.

Welcome to halftrack ownership!  Post up some pics of your track...we like pics!

Here is the link to the thread  on the G-503. Your best contact would be Mike Keller as he has taken this on as a personal mission. He would be your go to guy.

Not sure who this Harold guy is? He seems top pop up now and again. Big promises but no back-up. I've got feelers out but no one has heard of any tracks being manufactured. The excavator idea was dropped pretty early on due to the fact they are not designed for high speed (yes 30mph is high speed compared to an excavator)

As Tom said welcome aboard and YES please post pictures!

You can try Rod Shaver, David Yamillia, there are some suppliers in Europe. There are also some people on the forum that have started to manufacture some parts after market. Check the Vendor page at the MVPA site. Also look this forum over as there are list of aftermarket parts. Remember most of the parts on these units were civilian truck parts. Designed by White Trucks, sometimes you can find parts on old truck forums.
