ABSTRACT
Rubber tracks or tyres-that's the choice facing farmers and contractors buying a new 350hp plus tractor, but for one farming company the answer is not one or the other but both. The farm manager for the company Farmeco which runs a 410hp rubber-tracked Caterpillar Challenger 95E tractor plus two Claas Lexion 480 combine harvesters that were both mounted on tracks for last year's harvest as of April 2003, Keith Challen, farm manager at Farmeco is a keen advocate for tracked machinery.
