Cruel winter weather over the last few weeks has definitely put a damper on our customers’ interest in rental crawler carriers. This isn’t an uncommon occurrence during the winter months due to the hindrance of ice, snow and rain. However, what I discovered when discussing this issue with a co-worker is that many of our customers don’t know that we have a solution.
It’s not something we’ve imagined and it’s not entirely new, but it is the offered solution for our rental crawler carrier customers. Similar to chains on tires or picks on shoes, the rubber track cleats offer traction for crawler carrier tracks in icy conditions. The rubber track cleats only take a few minutes to install and get placed on the tracks prior to use. Once the rubber track cleats are on, the crawler carrier is ready to begin working over ice just as it would on dry land.
Benefits of Rubber Track Cleats
Rubber track cleatsare an excellent defense against winter weather, and knowing that they are available on rental crawler carrier units allows your business to plan accordingly. Like a domino effect, the ability to plan accordingly reduces your companies down time saving you time and money. Therefore, if you work in an area with varying winter climates, why not utilize our rental crawler carriers with rubber track cleats.
