NESCO RENTALS RIGHT TRACK SYSTEM “a real game changer”
For years, the electric utility industry’s only solution to address problematic ground conditions was with a track unit. Right Track System addressed this issue with a patented design that gives users an opportunity to efficiently operate machinery on jobsites where extreme ground conditions exist. In 2011 the company launched its product line in the United States. NESCO Rentals seized the opportunity to become the exclusive rental distributor for the integrated rubber tracks.
Right Track System manufactures over-the-tire rubber tracks for off-road and over the road equipment. The tracks are custom made to fit any size tire and have the ability to be rebuilt. This means that once the outside tread has worn down it can be replaced, without having to dispose of the entire track.
Whether servicing transmission lines in the spring, or running down lines in the winter, installation of the tandem axle truck tracks dramatically improve the efficiency of the unit. Right Track’s tandem axel truck has 30” tracks, which are designed to increase floatation by over 400%. This reduces ground pressure to half of what a floatation tire provides. The added flotation prevents tire sinkage and allows 2” heavy-duty grouser/tread design to maneuver equipment in most off road situations.
The modular design allows variation in styles and depths of grousers. Some of the designs include heavy-duty ice cleats for cold weather and 2” grousers for loose mud and sand. All of the tracks are made with 1250 – 1500 lbs of heavy-duty conveyor belting. This belting is 5 times the strength of a standard truck tire. This gives customers an advantage while working on sites with loose debris or terrain where sidewall and tread tire damage are possible.
Right Tracks can be installed for an entire unit in as little as 2 hours and removed in a few minutes by experienced users. The convenience makes this product very easy to work with in the field. The Right Track System is designed for off-road use only; but can drive over short distances on asphalt or concrete roadways without damaging the road surface or the tracks. The weight of the total system is around 3600 lbs., which can be loaded on the bed of a unit or trailered behind a unit.
