Bridgestone PolarTread Rubber Track Design & Performance
Need that extra grip when it comes to plowing snow under the worst conditions? Wait now longer! The Bridgestone Polar Tread rubber tracks are the ultimate solution to this job application. Learn more about this outstanding rubber track below.
Traction is the greatest concern for those who battle the elements to provide clear save passage for pedestrians and vehicular traffic. Without sufficient traction from your machine you might as well be pushing snow with a shovel.
Bridgestone’s PolarTread is optimized to provide you with maximum traction under the most severe snow removal applications. The video to the right displays how two Compact Track Loaders demonstrate the advantages and disadvantages of using Bridgestone’s All Season PolarTread Rubber Tracks. The Bridgestone rubber track clearly out performs the staggered block rubber track for this particular job application.
The development of a polar tread is strictly for snow removal applications, therefore traction being the utmost importance in this design and performance. No other brand or design can compare to PolarTread.
Bridgestone PolarTread Handling Ability Bridgestone’s polar tread design allows you to initiate movement without slippage permitting you to focus more on the task at hand, and less on the lack of control.
Lateral slippage is very common amongst all machines while operating on snow covered surfaces. Bridgestone’s Research & Design center has significantly reduced the affects of lateral slippage within the design of the PolarTread rubber tracks. Polar tread reduces this affect by 11%, helping you to maneuver more efficiently within tight constraints such as parking lots or other congested areas. Also, this helps improve better fuel consumption efficiency.
One of many important safety considerations one must take when selecting a reliable rubber track is stopping distance. The graph to the right demonstrates how Bridgestone’s PolarTread out-performs standard rubber tracks by reducing the stopping distances by nearly half from maximum operating speeds.
Experienced operators understand that emergency stops occur more often during snow removal operations than any other job applications due to obscured obstructions, vehicle and pedestrian traffic, and heavy snowfall. Reducing your stopping distance by nearly half can save much more than cost from property damage alone. It can even save lives.
