This looks like a great modification for anyone using an ATV, whether it is for checking cows or roaming the bush looking for elk or deer — a set of quad tracks for the four-wheeler.
This probably isn’t completely new, but Northern Plains Track had this display unit, (see photos) at the recent Agri-Trade Show in Red Deer. These Canadian-made tracks were installed on a John Deere side-by-side Gator, but Mark Nowacki of Northern Plains says the tracks can be installed equally as easy on a conventional four-wheeler.
Made by Camoplast of Quebec, the tracks can be installed in a couple of hours, says Nowacki. And if the operator wants to switch back to wheels, that is roughly a half-hour project.
The tracks make the average quad an all-season vehicle for rolling over dry land, mud, snow and/or fairly steep country. Great for just getting from Point A to Point B, and also make it possible to put the machine to work for winter snow plowing.
A set of tracks cost between $4,500 and $5,000, but they may make the difference between getting a job done, or not getting it done. Supposedly they have a bit more cushion too making it easier on your back and butt. And, if you decide to sell the quad there’s no reason you can’t take the tracks off and re-install them on the new unit.
