Big Tyre is the Australian distributor for Continental Trackman agricultural tracks.
Beginning in 1954 as 'Vaculug Australia', Big Tyre has serviced the industry for more than 65 years.
Since 1992, when engineer and inventor Bruce Louden became managing director, the business has grown significantly.
"Continental have been pioneers in the manufacturing of agricultural rubber track for more than 20 years," a Big Tyre spokesman said.
"The newly designed Trackman rubber track has been designed for those with demanding applications.
"It offers five per cent wider tread than previous track.
"Trackman offers fully moulded tread and guide lugs for greater durability.
"The more aggressive tread and wider lugs is certain to make this track the new favourite for tough conditions.
"Under any condition, on every soil type, season after season, you demand the most out of your equipment.
"Because you have to work harder, faster and smarter, from planting seed to the technology you deploy, everything must work as hard as possible to maximise yield and remain competitive.
"That's why trackman delivers more durability, better power transfer, and handles higher horsepower and torque.
"You'll also get better flotation, less soil compaction, increased traction and smoother ride.
"Continental has the rubber track that delivers the kind of performance where it matters the most - on your farm."
Big Tyre's range of new tracks compliments their ability to re-condition current tracks.
"We can re-build both the tread bars and guide blocks on Caterpillar/Agco and John Deere tractors.
"Big Tyre also re-conditions the undercarriage wheels for all rubber track tractors.
"This could save the machine owner from 30 to 80 per cent on new components."
