STR’s Cushotrac® rubber and polyurethane track pads for asphalt and concrete milling and paving machines have been leading the industry in performance for over 37 years. Under the harshest road construction conditions the Cushotrac® Mold On and Cushotrac® Bolt to Shoe track pads have outperformed the competition hands down.
“We offer the ‘Best of Both Worlds’ for asphalt milling and paving machines” says Jeff Gustafson, Product Line Manager for Superior Tire. “Our polyurethane pads, whether it is the molded style or bolt on style, have lead the industry in wear characteristics and work-life in ever side by side test vs. the competition.” “We listen to the contractors. While some are looking for pads that last longer, some need more traction because they’re working on grades, or in deeper cuts. So we developed the rubber bolt to shoe pads. Using natural rubber (vs. synthetic rubber) these pads, while not having the cut, tear and abrasion resistance characteristics of polyurethane, give better traction for these machines. According to Mike Hampton from Pavement Recycling Systems, one of the largest asphalt milling contractors in the US from Mira Loma, CA…
“The value is evident in their products and while they may not be the least expensive pads on the market today, they save us money in the long run. As soon as the OEM pads wear out on a new machine we purchase, we switch to Superior’s bolt to shoe system” Mike goes on to say, “Superior really listens to the contractors…they offer the best poly pads out there and now they are offering a wire-impregnated bolt to shoe rubber pad for guys who want the additional traction…they have it all.”
