It’s nearly fall, and we’ve got at least one baseball team in contention. If we’re talking baseball playoffs, that means winter is on its way.

Ask the Experts is a recurring segment where we share expert advice from our professional staff. In our latest Ask the Experts segment, we go over how you determine when you need to replace the rubber tracks on your compact track loader or mini excavator.
Choose from high-quality tire and rubber track sets from our parts department to improve traction and performance on any make or model. Through August, they’re 10% off if you buy the full set.
The idea behind rubber tracks is that they increase traction while minimizing ground impact. The ample surface area means your machine’s weight is more evenly distributed, allowing for greater “flotation,” which provides an advantage with challenging terrain. Also because of the greater weight disbursement, compact track loaders (and smaller utility loaders like the Toro Dingo) are good choices for landscape and construction work at existing homes.

It’s likely not a coincidence that a person with French ancestry, like Greg Guimond, would wind up settling in the town of Bourbonnais. And so perhaps it was also preordained that Greg’s travels would lead him to a long and prosperous career at Martin Implement Sales. Greg found his calling in equipment parts, not long out of high school.
