Tracks vs. Wheels

Posted: November 7, 2013 by Bunce Rental in Earth Moving & Excavation, Home Improvement

Here at Bunce Rental, our loaders (Bobcat Skid Steers & John Deere Compact Loaders), trenchers, and stump grinders can be rented with tracks or wheels. The original plan for this blog post was to write about the differences and applications of used a tracked machine or a machine with wheels. However, after reading what others had to say about the differences between tracks and wheels, we realized we really couldn’t explain it any better.

This article from Komatsu though pertaining specifically to loaders, does a great job of explaining the differences between tracks and wheels, along with their applications.
