NEW VS USED OTT TRACKS
A used Over The Tire track may be cheaper, but that is not a guarantee that they will provide you with the best ROI for your operations. They may not be the ideal investment in the long-run, depending on their extent of wear. With new OTT tracks, you do not have to worry as much about your track’s service life. Below, we offer the main reasons why a new OTT track is still a better option than used OTT tracks:
Durability and Extended Service Life
New OTT tracks are much more durable and dependable than used OTT tracks. Due to the fact that they have zero wear, you can be sure that you will enjoy a longer service life with new tracks than used OTT tracks. They are also more dependable when operated on challenging applications as they have less wear and can perform optimally in these situations as opposed to worn, used tracks that perform at a much lower level.
Availability and Wider Selection of Tracks
Your choices are limited when it comes to used OTT tracks. Since the availability of compatible used OTT tracks for your particular skid steer is not guaranteed, you run into the problem of not finding the right OTT track for your skid steer. Shopping for new OTT tracks significantly extend your options as inventory includes a wider selection of tracks for various skid steer brands on the market. You save yourself the time and effort used in scouring different retailers to find the appropriate OTT track for your equipment.
Warranty on new OTT tracks
When you buy new OTT tracks, you get manufacturer’s warranty to protect you in the instance of any defect caused by material used or poor workmanship on the part of the manufacturer. You can rest assured that if for any reason there is a problem with the tracks, you can get it replaced at no additional cost as long as you do so within the warranty’s time frame. The same cannot be said about used OTT tracks. You are really on your own, should you encounter any defects. This is a risk you have to consider carefully when buying used tracks as in the long run, you might have to spend money getting another OTT track.
We recommend new OTT tracks
In conclusion, we recommend new OTT tracks if you want to get the maximum ROI for your projects. If your budget does not permit buying new OTT tracks, used OTT tracks can still be a viable option. Only buy used OTT tracks from trusted dealers. Monster Tires offers used OTT tracks for a variety of skid steers on the market.
