Got the Kittytrack out to get her ready for the tractor show and to add the rubber pads I been putting off doing.

 

First I got her out for a drive to get some of the rust off the pads.

The rubber pads are made out of 3/8 belting and have been cut to size and had 3 holes drilled in them.

Here what they look like on a pad....

I put all the bolts into the rubbers.

A little dirty in the drive area...

Repainting the tracks.

Laying out all the rubber pads on the tracks. I need to buy some lock nuts to hold them on and I should be done with the tracks.

I'll be putting the tracks back on tomorrow and taking her out for another drive.

More up dates to come....

Nice machine and it looks like a serious amount of work to get those tracks fitted with the rubber pads. It's not easy drilling holes in rubber and that's a lot of holes!

It looks like they don't give you a lot of extra rubber. How long do they wear?
