An Overview of Compact Track Loaders and Rubber Tracks

Why Compact Track Loaders Have Been Gaining in Popularity with Contractors

Within the construction industry, the compact track loader is a very adaptable piece of equipment; it can be used on both delicate/sensitive surfaces and tougher/unforgiving surfaces, and for jobs that require working with and/or moving heavy loads/materials. Therefore, a compact track loader can be a viable option for a wide range of industries/jobsites, such as:

  • Forestry
  • Agriculture
  • Excavation
  • Utility Work
  • Construction
  • Land Management
  • Landscaping Services

As a result of its greater versatility, the compact track loader can offer several economic and functional benefits to owners/operators; some of these benefits would include:

  • More days in use throughout the year
  • Effective on both flat and sloped surfaces
  • Pushing and lifting power for heavy-duty jobs
  • Greater stability and flotation on uneven surfaces
  • Low ground pressure – less rutting/jobsite damage
  • Rigid undercarriage – designed for maximum durability
  • Better platform for lifting due to no front-tire compression

Over the past decade-plus, compact track loaders have demonstrated significant growth in popularity; however, in order to ensure that their benefits are realized and maximized, contractors must choose the correct type of rubber tracks for their particular work/jobs.

This can be achieved by consulting knowledgeable compact equipment suppliers, such as the team from Tag Equipment in Stouffville, Ontario.
