    Default good quality utv tracks

    I see there are plenty of posts regarding tracks so I hope I am not beating a dead horse. Maybe I am just too lazy to read them all. Anyway would like to find opinions on the best tracks for a side by side (JD xuv). Price is not the biggest concern, quality is as it will be used for a search and rescue unit. Any thought would be appreciated, the only thing I have looked at so far are matt trax.

    No comparison, the Camoplast Tatou track system is the best period. They were making snowmobile and construction equipment tracks before most of these companies were made. I have tried many different systems, mostly side-by-side comparisons with the same vehicle and the Camoplast it the smoothest and has the best traction.

    I recently purchased the Tatou 4s system for my Honda Foreman. I havn't had a lot of time to use them yet but they were easy to install, great fit and finish and making any adjustments has been extremely easy. I am very happy with them.

    I have only tried one 4 wheeler with tracks and it was a Yamaha with Power Steering. Does your ATV have Power Steering? I am curious how much harder it is to steer with the tracks vs tires on a non-power steering ATV.

    I would be interested in steering effort as well. Although improved, the xuv is probably not the easiest to steer unit on the market and before tracks will be in the #2,000 range.

    I do not have power steering.
    It is deffinately harder to steer at times than before, though I find steering in reverse is much harder than going forward. I have used the tracks on both packed trails and in powder and found the steering to be a little twitchy on the packed trails. Power steering may help with that issue as well.
    Overall I don't feel I have to have the powersteering now that I have the tracks, but if I was going to buy a new atv it would be harder to buy another without it.
