Rubber tracks have no mounting direction strictly speaking with the exception of " deported " rubber tracks. Offset tracks, found mainly on YANMAR mini excavators, have a guide track that is not in the centre of the width of the excavator but 1/3 of it. If you have offset tracks, you need to pay attention to the mounting direction so that the widest offset of the track is on the right side.
Yes, on some machines but beware it's not always the case.. Not all machines can be converted from steel chains to rubber tracks and, above all, it is important to check the compatibility of your bearing components (lower rollers, upper rollers, sprockets and idler wheels) before making any changes.. We invite you to check the possibilities for your machine with your adviser before placing an order.
