Abstract:

In agriculture and forestry it is important to increase mobility and lower the ground pressure to avoid soil compaction and damages to the ground. Rubber tracks have flexible sides which give a much more lenient behaviour to the ground than steel tracks. A special track system, the twin-bogie with rubber tracks, evens out obstacles and increases the mobility on all types of surfaces. This system together with a variation of vertically adjustable bogies has a big potential in the military sector. A light and thin rubber track reduces soil compaction in agriculture and is very useful in all ecologically sensitive areas.
