Hey who has a quadtrac? How many hours have you done and have you had many issues with the track systems? I have Challenger and I have to forever adjust idlers as it is always chewing the tracks out.

Looking for more horsepower and dad thinks case is the pick of the quadtrac setups. Just after some feedback guys, cheers!!!

Have had an STX450 for 5+ years now. Never have to adjust the tracks. Have had to do some seals and bearings in rollers is about it. Just about to hit 7000hrs on the original 36" wide tracks.

I think I've put 1500 hours on my 485 (has 3500 total). Some seals/bearings in the rollers to start. Now I just keep putting oil in the ones that leak a little bit. 3 or 4 need to be filled once a week. Oil is cheaper than seals and bearings. Until one goes right out I will keep on filling the oil and checking the gas!

Front tracks getting a bit chewed up from stubble. Rears look brand new.

If you think the challenger is bad why would you want to go to lighter built system? Don’t see very many wrecked tracks at challenger dealers, there is always a pile of wrecked tracks at any case dealer

Ran a 485 QT to 9500hrs. Tracks were to the point of needing replacement. Other than that I replaced two seals on idlers. The engine is another story. Do yourself a favor and get a Cummins powered one.

I agree with the Cummins post, my stx450 has cost a lot of money, (I bought a POS) but once I got the problems fixed it works great, and those qsx are the same ones that can put out 600 hp, just have a dialed back program in them.

I know a guy bought a brand new 620 and had to hook his 535 back up to pull the drill till he got a steinbauer for the 620. I dream of a quad with a QSK in it. Would be ultimate tractor. Too bad no more Cummins.
