Tracks are reliable and cause little issue most of the time. If you are running in muddy conditions they are great. If the mud freezes not good. A new grain cart on tracks will run $35,000 or so above tires. Replacement tracks will run $8,000 to $15,000 per side. Floater tires will also run $8,000 to $14,000 per side.How much more compared with tires ?
Think you are getting IF and VF tires mixed up.If a guy can not afford tracks IF tires give you 40% more paw print on the ground than regular radials and a lot more weight carrying capacity. We bought a older Balzer cart with tripples on each side and traded off the tires for the IF tires.
