Track choices

Looking for some feedback regarding tracks for the prowler 1000, I have an 09 and will be using it for scouting oil leases, mostly snow. I have been considering the matt tracks (litefoot). anyone running these tracks? pros, cons.

Thanks,

All I know is when I bought my tatou tracks I was told the Mattracks took more power to run and were heavier not stronger. I am well satisfied with mine. I will not run mine in snow again without an intake snorkle though sucks way to much snow.

Thanks for the info, never thought about the intake problem picking up snow. Good idea to go with a snorkel. Thanks

I would like to get mine to intake air above the cab with the filter mounted on back of cab maybe could eliminate some intake noise too

I'm a newbie to this tracked UTV thing, but was told by a few people using them, that a external drive track like Matt track and TJD are superior for running in mud and sticks because they are not as prone to "ratcheting" as the internal drives like Tatou. I looked at a Matt Track on a 650 and it looked like a power robbing beast and was told they were more for a pickup than an UTV. I really believe the Tatou is the best out there, but my running will be in serious swamps and tundra and I was afraid of the ratcheting problem, so I went with the 121" widetrack(12") TJD. I've got a temporary old style TJD that is around 100" and it seems to do well. It's only 11" wide.

seriously consider the commander widetracks. They are made for snow, are the lightest tracks on the market, by far. They are 100% UHMW, which makes them so light and strong. Their website is Commander Wide Track - Go beyond frontiers
