  • Added strength: Heavy-duty base beam adds strength to support center tires on ridges
  • Low-cost upgrade: Base beam only option gives you a low-cost upgrade option in the future
  • Increased traction: Helps prevent stuck drive units
  • Minimizes ground pressure: Heavy-duty steel tracks distribute weight over a wider area than other tire options
  • Increased flotation: Tracked drive unit with longer wheel base and lower ground pressure minimizes soil compaction and rut depth
