    New Type of Tracks - Chanel Tracks

    Hi every body. Did you ever see those tracks made by a guy ( patenteux on sentier 6X6 forum) from Québec, Canada. channel track 19 pouces - YouTube

    They are similar to the escargo but a lot lighter and a lot cheaper. I'm in contact with Patenteux to get some. They can go on avenger with agressive tire like the mud bug 25X12X9. He also makes some for different tire size

    He has more videos on youtube ( channel track 19") in a pound of water and ice. I'm not saying they are better than adair but it seems putty good and less than 1/2 the price of escargo and adair.

    cool....Nice find. I wish it was easier to see his crossers. They seem to do pretty darn good in that terrain. Thanks for finding that- the price sounds right especially if they work really well.

    The video was just to show them. A weeled argo would do the same as that video.The other videos show it more in the snow and a bit of mud. Like I said they really look like the escargo so I think they should be good in mud and also in snow. My concern is about the strenth of the crossers and also the belt, are they as strong as the escargo. I talked to the guy and he told me that he tried them in rocks, hard terrain and mud this summer and so far no crossers broke. He didn't have a chance to try them in deep snow since he started to make them last spring.But the price is very good, it's more afordable.

    Sure looks like he is running a lot of tire pressure in the video. The tires don't seem to give at all on any of the trees or ruts. Maybe they need to be over inflated with the tracks having no real track guides.

    He's running 5 pounds in them and he said they never went off. He put them on kijiji.ca ( channel track) and on the québec site "Les pacs", just type channel track. He's asking $1800.00 neg for a 6 wheeler and around $2100.00 for an 8X8. They can go on any type of tires.

    I just talked to the guy ( his name is Marcel). He said that the crossers have 4.25 inches between each of them so the track cleans good in the mud. He's just waiting for lots of snow and he will put the video on youtube. The one on avenger weigh 95 pounds each, less than rubber and 1/2 the weight of the escargo. So far he didn't have any issues with the crossers. Nobody complained about crossers broken.
