VTS can make tracked undercarriages for loads between 300 and 400,000 kg. You can select either rubber tracks or steel tracks, depending on the desired capacities and load. Or you could choose an extendable tracked undercarriage, which is ideal for applications where the width of the undercarriage matters, e.g. for narrow passageways. You also have the choice to purchase a high speed tracked undercarriage, which can travel at a speed of 25 km/h.
Rubber tracks means that the tracks of the undercarriage are made of rubber. A tracked undercarriage with rubber tracks is mainly used in construction, agriculture and industry. Due to their low soil pressure, rubber tracks leave almost no impressions in the subsoil and do not damage it. That is why rubber tracks are suitable for virtually all subsoils, especially for mud, sand and snow. Read more about rubber tracks.
A tracked undercarriage on steel tracks is mainly used for heavy transports. Those undercarriages can carry loads of 2 to 200 tonnes. A steel track has no problem negotiating rough surfaces of stones, rocks and boulders. Read more about steel tracks.

VTS Track Solutions supplies track systems that are hydraulically extendable/can be widened. An extendable track system provides for even better stability. The extendable track systems also take up less space, so they can be transported in compliance with the transport regulations. Hydraulic cylinders provide for the extension and retraction movements of the frames. Small types may even pass through a standard door opening in some cases.

VTS high speed tracked undercarriages are designed to travel at high speed. Depending on the type, the high speed track systems can reach speeds of around 25 km per hour. High speed tracked undercarriages are especially useful when your machine needs to travel long distances and/or on (public) roads. With high speed track systems, the rollers run up to the sides of the rubber tracks, leading to less wear and tear and no damage to the subsoil. There is also improved damping and stability.

In addition to new final drives, VTS Track Solutions also provides reconditioned drives. These final drives are reconditioned in our own workshop with the specialist equipment we have at our disposal. Each final drive is thoroughly checked for operation after the reconditioning. They are therefore supplied with a test certificate and exchange guarantee.
We have a number of reconditioned final drives in stock. For a selection of what is currently on offer, please visit the Used Final Drives page. Is the final drive you need not listed below? contact us.
A final drive that is broken can often be repaired at a good price, after which it can still be used for many years to come. We will send you an estimate for the repair in advance. Please contact us for more information.
When you purchase a new or reconditioned final drive, you may still be able to return your old defective final drive. We may be able to use it in some way! Please send it to us or bring it to our workshop in Maarheeze for a valuation. Feel free to contact us for more information.
