Collector of many tractors
Older Magna-trak uses garden tractor trannys and then chain drives down to another axle that drives the tracks...
Is it even possible to make the drive lugs on the drive wheels engauge with the teeth on the track without changing the diameter of the drive wheels? In my mind, only the diameter of the drive wheels can influence the number of drive lugs that are put onto the drive wheels. That said, no matter how wide the drive lugs or how far apart they are spaced, they will still never engage the track teeth properly unless I have the correct diameter first.
Am I right or am I missing something besides my mind?
Now, on the flip side, since this won't really be used in mud, water, or snow, what do you guys think about me using rubber to grip the steel sections of the tracks.
Does tractor supply company stop conveyor belt material? I think they do and this is what I might use to try this theory of mine.
