Mattracks, makers of rubber track conversion systems, now offers a rubber track conversion system made from commercial grade rubber that is designed specifically for utility work machines. The LiteFoot model converts utility work vehicles, like Bobcats, to tracks, allowing off-road capabilities in rugged terrain. With this conversion system, owners and operators of utility work machines can convert their tires into tracks in less than one hour.

“Our goal was to make it easier to switch from tires to tracks, so operators could get more use out of their utility work machines no matter the terrain,” said a Mattracks spokesperson. The upgraded commercial grade rubber track conversion joins the conversions available for 4x4 trucks, SUVs, tractors, ATVs and UTVs that Mattracks already offers.

The LiteFoot system features rubber coated UHMW wheels, two-piece HD steel sprockets, offset rocker suspension and a 15-inch wide track that is compatible with all terrain types. It is a durable and effective option and provides both two- and four-wheel steering options with a minimal increase in turning radius. “In other words,” said the Mattracks spokesperson, “we have created an innovative rubber track conversion system that offers the same maneuverability as tires, but on a larger number of terrains.”

LiteFoot comes in 16 different models and fits Bobcats 3400, 3400XL, 3450, 3600 and 3650.
