Trackback

Trackback is a recovery and safety device for putting tracks back on tracked vehicles, and Trackback can also be used as an emergency traction device.

 

An excavator operator working alone typically finds it difficult and dangerous to refit a lost track. Launched in 2013, this multifunctional device is guaranteed to improve operator safety.

 

Trackback offers peace of mind while you work, as well as reducing downtime and increasing productivity. Trackback is an instant solution with immediate recovery, fitting on and off on site with no drilling or welding required.

 

This ingenious device is simple to use and can be stored in your toolbox ready for refitting tracks, attaching chains, as a track winch or joiner, traction device or post attachment device.
