UK Construction parts can offer a wide variety of heavy duty rubber pads, clip on rubber pads, bolt on rubber pads, road liner or direct to chain rubber pads or even assemblies that include the steel chains with rubber pads included. These start at 300mm wide and include 400, 450, 500, 600, 700 and 800mm wide rubber pads to suit many different excavators.
They have great benefits over rubber tracks because you get the strength of a steel chain and pad combined with the flexibility of a rubber pad to run on various types of finished surfaces.
CLIP ON RUBBER PADS:
This type will clip on to the existing shoe with metal clips on each end – with these advantages:
- Less damage to finished surfaces
- Less down time fitting and removing
- Retaining existing steel shoe option
- Installation possible on site
BOLT ON RUBBER PADS:
This type bolts onto the existing shoe:
These are only suitable for shoes that have a predrilled bolt holes in the appropriate position, but the do offer a very tidy finish with no metal end clips.
BOLT ONTO CHAIN / DIRECT TO CHAIN RUBBER PADS:
The existing steel shoes are removed from the chain and replaced by the rubber shoe which is bolted directly onto the chain, this gives a lighter option than bolt on or clip on
