The CAT 308 mini excavator weighs nearly 9 tons, can dig a trench more than 13 feet deep and has a horizontal reach the length of a limousine. Because of its size and power you need to make sure you always use the right rubber tracks. That means the CAT 450x71x88 rubber track. This track is more than just a good fit, it’s actually made for the 308 using OEM specs. Because of that won’t have to worry about a loose track making excessive contact with the underside of the 308’s carriage. You also won’t have to worry about obtaining a quality foothold because the track’s computer designed lugs take big bites out of the terrain and don’t let go.
This track also utilizes the most advanced rubber compounds available in order to achieve a level of flexibility that keeps your mini excavator the game even after hours of repetitive motion. Deep inside is a layer of vulcanized rubber that prevents minor rips and tears from spelling the end to the track while a band of splice-free, drop-forged steel cord repels most common jobsite intruders like rebar, metal shards and jagged sheet metal. The CAT 450x71x88 rubber track is a must for anyone interested in maximizing the potential of their CAT 308 mini excavator.
