  • Wrench 10mm
  • Allen Key 10mm
  • Ruler or Measuring tape

STEP 1 
Lift boom up and ensure safety is engaged.


STEP 2
Lay track out in front of the machine and drive machine onto tracks until rear tire is seated.


STEP 3
Hold track against rear tire and drive forward onto the middle of the track.


STEP 4
Lift track over the front of the tire and ensure track is snug around the tire.


STEP 5
Double check the mounting direction of track is correct. The small arrows should be facing towards the front of the  machine.


STEP 6
Put the joining pin in and hammer into place. You may need to use a ratchet strap to pull ends of the track together while you do this.

Installation Tips for OTTs

STEP 7
Roll the machine forward and tighten the joining pin.


STEP 8
Check for correct tension – the sag should be 50-70mm.
If you are unsure how to check for tension, use a straight edge that is long enough to rest on each wheel and use a ruler or tape measure to measure the distance between the top of the OTT track and the bottom of the straight edge.
