Most of the quad track type tractors have cab suspension. If the tractor has cab suspension they don't ride to bad on the road. The ones I have been around seem to have a sweet spot going down the road around 18 mph to 20 mph. Most everyone that has one seem to like them.

They seem to go through tracks pretty quick. Neighbors 620 had to swap tracks at like 2500hrs and the rollers were pooched too. Seemed to think that was par for the course by how the dealers talked.

Tracks will last 4000-5000hrs on a quad. Some people can wreck anything. Tracks need dirt to keep them cool and bogies don’t like 23mph for any amount time if tractors are pulling anything.

Don’t blame the tractors or tracks when it’s the guys behind the wheel

Have just under 3000hours on case quad that 10 years old. Does not get roaded much or I guess even used much - lol. The tracks would not even be half wore. It does get the bogies checked each yr and some of that very expensive oil spilled/added to some of them each time. This is not a nice job, but think it very necessary. This is one of those pieces of farm equipment where depreciation is not so much of a factor if you have looked after them.

We throw graphite in the tracks when hitting the road. It doesn't take much but if you don't they heat up and that's what destroys them.
