12" Rear Tracks on Polaris Ranger 6x6. The "Traxion Plus" Tracks on Front were originally made by AD Boivin and later by Camoplast, but have been discoutinued.
18" Width Rear Tracks as installed on Polaris Ranger 6x6
These tracks can provide extra traction and mobility Wintertime's snow and ice and the soft and muddy conditions encountered during Spring thaw and Summer rains.
These unique tracks convert a Utility Vehicle with dual rear axles (6x6 or 6x4) into a track driven machine. The unique design of these tracks allows them to flex with the movements of the axles, irrespective of whether those axles are fixed, independent, or swing arm.
When installing the tracks, it is necessary to provide additional clearance between the tracks and the shock absorber coil springs by installing wheel spacers: 1.5" for the 12" pattern, and 3" spacers when using the 18" pattern. 3" Spacers are priced at $375 for a set of four (Discontinued).
It should also be noted that due to their relatively light weight, flexible linkage design, and individually removable shoe pads, these tracks are very easy to install and remove, especially so after one initial installation and length adjustment.
Weight of the 18" tracks is approximately 300# per pair (150# each side) and 200# per pair (100# each side) for the 12" Nominal pattern. The tracks can easily be disassembled into lighter (shorter) segments for storage or transportation.
Pricing Terms: $1595/pair for the 12" nominal tracks and $1995/pair for the 18" wide super traction/super flotation tracks. $1000 deposit. Balance due prior to shipping...usually about 4 weeks...depending upon production schedule.

Here is what the Ranger looked like after coming out of the muddy area illustrated earlier. Even with mud almost up to the floorboards, the tracks got the equipment through. If I had had tires, I would still be out there in the mud.
