Rubber pads from TAGEX
Pad systems are becoming increasingly popular, and for a good reason, as TAGEX pads break the limitations of current steel track undercarriages. The use of this pad system opens up totally new areas of application especially for machinery operating at weights of between 15 and 25 tons. From now on, this machinery can be used in sensitive areas where conventional steel tracks would cause too much noise and damage, such as on inner-city roads and squares.
There are three basic rubber pad systems.
Whilst so-called Bolt On Pads can be bolted onto the steel base plates of the steel track retrospectively, Chain On Pads are bolted onto the base of the track instead of the steel base plate. Clip On Pads are similar to Bolt On Pads; the two systems simply differ in the method used for installation. TAGEX stocks an extensive range of Chain On Pads. An entire range of Bolt On Pads is also available, but not ex stock (i.e., approx. 10-week lead time from receipt of order).
TAGEX pads excel in particular in
- High-quality, extremely adhesive, and wear-resistant rubber compounds,
- High-strength steel alloys,
- A modern design that uses round, level edges to counteract potential damage from shear forces when turning on the spot,
- A sophisticated triple grouser structure, giving the steel base excellent stability and providing the rubber body with a high level of adhesive surface.
Your benefits at a glance:
- TAGEX pads go easy on the ground and open up new areas of application especially for machinery of between 15 and 25 tons.
- Steel tracks with TAGEX pads have a longer service life than rubber tracks and will not tear.
- Defective TAGEX pads can be changed individually.
To ensure that we select the correct TAGEX pads for your machine we need the following information:
- The complete model name on the identification plate,
- The machine's operating weight.
- The following information is also useful: (form)
A note on the correct area of application
Rubber pads are not a panacea. For all their robustness, TAGEX pads are made of rubber, and as such not suited for use in demolition, rubble and recycling material. In addition, traction values are also worse compared to rubber and steel tracks. Machines using TAGEX pads are best suited to working on flat terrain on a solid subsurface.
