Camso, formerly Camoplast Solideal, displayed its latest tracks and track systems at the Farm Progress Show in Decatur, IL, August 29-31. In addition, Camso product experts and marketing executives were on hand providing information and answering questions.
"We're excited about this year's show for several reasons," says Martin Lunkenbein, Camso Business Line Executive Director, Agriculture. "We announced details about our new remanufactured tracks and wheels program. In addition, we highlighted our newest Conversion Track Systems (CTS) for combines that feature a suspended frame and integrated final drive system. We also displayed our Camso AG 2500 Series Tracks, a more economical, yet high-quality track solution for general ag applications."
Coming soon: Camso remanufactured tracks and wheels
During the show, Camso executives shared details about the company's new soon-to-be-launched remanufactured tracks and wheels program. "Camso is continuously thinking about the next generation of tracks and innovation to the industry. Later this year, Camso will offer a remanufactured tracks and wheels program to provide customers with an economical, effective and durable solution that will extend the use of tracks and wheels on their equipment," says Lunkenbein. "Camso will remanufacture the tracks and wheels to ensure they are rebuilt from the best, longest-lasting carcass in the industry and will use the same Camso original materials to provide extended life."
CTS High Speed tracks for combines
Camso CTS High Speed, with an integrated final drive system, allows tracked harvesting machines to reach roading speeds similar to wheeled combines. The final drives help match the right gear to the right speed, allowing combines to move faster from field to field, up to 23 mph. Producers were able to get a closer look at Camso CTS-equipped combines in the field during the show's harvesting demonstrations.
A frame suspension system and double oscillating wheels of the CTS improve ground contact of the tracks on uneven surfaces, and improve machine stability and header placement for more efficient harvesting and improved operator comfort. "Our CTS High Speed delivers a 12% larger footprint than current CTS Q and CTS T that reduces ground compaction and minimizes field damage so harvesting operations are maximized. When field conditions are soft, CTS increases a combine's mobility and flotation so producers have better access to their fields. It an exclusive Camso innovation currently available for John Deere STS and S Series Combines," Lukenbein says.
Camso AG 2500 Series Tracks
Earlier this year, Camso introduced new AG 2500 Series Tracks for standard agricultural applications and fieldwork at a competitive price point. Built with the same process and high-quality Camso standards, AG 2500 Series Tracks feature exclusive endless single-cure technology that ensures high performance and durability. "AG 2500 tracks are engineered to perform as well as competitive rubber track products but at a lower out-of-pocket expense. With an average cost saving of 15% per hour of operation, we deliver proven Camso track performance for less money," says Lukenbein. AG 2500 Series Tracks are available for all friction-drive tractors, including the John Deere 8RT and 9RT tractors, as well as the AGCO MT700 and MT800 platforms.
Camso's CTS High Speed for combines, and its AG 2500 Series Tracks, are available for purchase through the company's network of distributors and dealers.
