Camoplast Tatou UTV 4S tracks

Hi,

Anybody have any problems with the Camoplast Tatou UTV 4S tracks on the Commander? I'm interested in purchasing these tracks, just wondering about issues I've read about so far. Some mention problems with belts, transmissions heating up, and some loss of top speed. Any comments? Thanks for your input.

I currently run two sets of these tracks on my 2011 XT & 2012 LTD. We have broken all four of the rear anti-rotaion brackets left and right and had a front and rear track derail. Top speed is 40mph.. They are harder on the belts, went through 5 on one trip in the U.P. of MI between the two units. We since added blowers to the outer CVT cover and eliminated this issue. Currently we have about 800 miles on the tracks and love'em but if you use them like you have tires on you will have problem's. I dont think camoplast's intent was for guys to go screamin around on snowmobile trails with these tracks. If your out in the deep suff looking at the scenery you'll be fine!

Wow!

ArcticBomb, thanks for the input! Really good to know. I am pretty attracted to those tracks, and I'm looking forward to where the machine will be able to go. Sounds like some heavy duty sort of belt may be in order for those tracks.
Thanks for the insight!

We just switched over to the Gates belts with no problem. Discount Fleet has them for $36. Good luck in your new adventure. If you have any questions I'd be happy to help you!

ArcticBomb,

This sort of information is like gold! Thank you very much! I'll look for those belts when the time comes. When I get my machine going and set up on those tracks, I'll be sure to post some pictures (early March).

I also run the tatou 4s utv tracks and have about 500 miles on them without any issues and the machine is bone stock, u can go through very deep powder with them but like arcticbomb said, they are not made to beat the shit out of so if u plan on jumping the machine or flying through whoops or ditches u are going to run into problems.
I have run my in very deep powder and up some steep slopes and they seem to be holding up great! So i guess it all depends on the way u drive on them!

Also when u are driving in deep powder ur cvt filter will clog with snow but there is an easy fix for that just pull the hose off where it connects to go the the filter, this has worked great for me because now it just sucks the air from under the hood and the snow dosent seem to get there!

Also i personally wouldnt run tracks in mud because they probably wouldnt last u very long but in snow only they should last many years!

Bjd68,

Thanks for the pictures of your machine! Very Cool! Anything I need to watch out for when I get my machine going (with those tracks)? Thanks for the reply.

Arctic bomb,

Thanks for the pictures! Awesome looking machine! I can't wait to get mine all set up pretty close to what you have there. I'm going to put a plow on it as well.
