BLS has a new rubber trackpad for excavators
The new trackpad from BLS will allow excavators to operate on road
US-based wear part specialist BLS Enterprises is broadening its product line with a new trackpad system. The firm’s president, Barry Stoughton, explained that the new product is designed for use with excavators, allowing them to be driven on an asphalt or concrete road without damaging the surface.
“It’s rubber bonded to steel,” said Stoughton. “We use a triple grouser steel pad.”
The firm offers the pad in three sizes, 457, 508 and 610mm wide. According to Stoughton, the pads offer extended wear life in comparison with rival products.
Traction is also said to be good in an array of applications when using the pads.
