TrackGrip products to keep you safer while you work.


The TrackGrip range of patented products will significantly improve traction, stability and safety for excavators with its exceptional sideways protection. TrackGrips come in a range of styles to handle all terrain conditions where adhesion is a problem including farming, drain work, pipe laying, mud, clay, sandstone, snow and ice.


TrackGrip is the greatest safety and traction enhancement attachment available for use on most tracked vehicles and there is nothing comparable on the market today. The pay back from reduced machine downtime plus the huge increase in operator safety makes having a set of TrackGrips an absolute necessity!


TrackGrips are easy to fit on and off and with no drilling or welding and comes with a complimentary spanner.

Featured in the Rural Living magazine, the reporter stated that “the TrackGrip design has proved to be a winner, and one which neither John nor anyone else has found a floor with yet. John has extended the idea and modified it for applications in extreme environments such as forestry and ice-covered terrain. After the launch at Field Days, John is now fielding calls from manufacturers and tracked equipment owners the world over.”


So what are TrackGrips like from an operator’s experience. Would they offer a significant improvement? Ken Borg was previously using another variety of traction cleat on his machine and I asked him for his impressions of the TrackGrip. “The traction is just phenomenal. At the end of the first day’s use I was totally convinced”, Ken reported.


The TrackGrip product has received widespread praise, both from industries that are typcial of its use, and the business industry who see the innovative design creating a positive impact on the safety and productivity of those who use TrackGrip.

Hi all, I have got a set of mightygrips on a ZX-120 and a CAT-312LC mulching on steep hilly country, working on steep slopes 35 to 45 degrees you need to be safe. Not sliding and running out big slides all day. with a mulcher on you can NOT ‘jam it into the ground, to stop’ like you can with a bucket or rake on… they have to be the best value for money, I could NOT make them for what they are. they out walk the digger in sand. 100% I’ll be buying more next winter to have a set for both diggers, as it saves me hours and hours of benching to get to hard steep hill places. thank you john/trackgrip.
