“The Protech Evo1 was fitted with ten RubberGrips to provide additional stability and traction. No permanent modification was required to the tracks as the RubberGrips simply bolt on and bolt off, making for easy transport and attachment removal when changing terrains.”

RubberGrip is a rubber track attachment or cleat to provide increased traction, stability and safety for excavators, hoes, skid steers and rubber tracked vehicles. Manufactured from high tensile steel, these rubber track attachments assist with sideways protection. They are installed with a bolt on mechanism – no drilling required.

Designed for muddier conditions and softer terrains, the rubber track attachment provides good depth and bite, enabling you to run on soft wet ground. If you’re using skid steer track cleats, try RubberGrip. RubberGrips extend the lifetime of your rubber tracks and allow you to repurpose worn-out tracks.

BENEFITS

  • Extend the lifetime of your rubber tracks
  • Improves safety, traction and stability
  • Assists with sideways protection
  • Install a full set in 30 minutes
  • Easy removal when you change terrain

CASE STUDY
Traction in Hill Country…

The Challenge:

Aaron from Dual Tech Fencing has years of experience in very challenging hill country environments. Recently getting his Protech fencing machine to the top of a steep ridge with extremely tight track access was blocking a job – at points the slope exceeded 45 degrees. Weather created a very slippery track on primarily mudstone sub-surface.

 

The Solution:  

The Protech Evo1 was fitted with ten RubberGrip rubber track attachments, to provide additional stability and traction allowing work to continue in wet and slippery conditions. The bolt on rubber track attachments meant no permanent modification was required to the tracks.

 

The Outcome:

  • Increased sideways protection when climbing and descending slopes

  • Dramatically improved traction and stability working in mudstone

  • Improved fuel efficiency

  • Reduced downtime – able to work in previously unworkable conditions

RubberGrip FAQs

What is a RubberGrip?

The patented RubberGrip is a rubber track attachment designed to enhance traction, safety and stability of the vehicle, assisting with sideways protection when navigating slopes and tough terrains.  It is an alternative to skid steer track cleats and steel cleats for rubber tracks.

In what conditions do you use RubberGrip on your tracked vehicle, excavator or dozer?

As a rubber track attachment, RubberGrip is ideal for using on your tracked vehicle, excavator or dozer when you’re dealing with conditions like ice, snow, mud, forestry and bush.  These track attachments or devices extend the lifetime of your rubber tracks through the added traction support.

As rubber track attachments, how do RubberGrips add traction in muddy and wet conditions?

The RubberGrips are rubber track attachments that are lined with a series of serrated teeth to provide bite in the mud and terrains where your rubber tracks would find it hard to gain traction.  Their patented design also assists with sideways protection to support against sliding.

How long does it take to install a set of RubberGrips on your tracked vehicle?

RubberGrips are rubber track attachments that are easily installed with simple bolt-on, bolt-off installation and removal.  They can be installed in just 30 minutes and removed in 30 minutes which makes it easy when changing terrains.  This makes them a far more efficient option than skid steer track cleats and steel cleats for rubber tracks.
