Single Prowler ™ CAT 279D 16" Wide Rubber Track
This listing is for a single Premium Grade Prowler ™ Aftermarket Rubber Track to fit your CAT 279D compact track loader. The size of this track is 400x86x56 and has the Prowler ™ D tread series, also known as the Staggered Block pattern. This rubber track also weighs approx. 470 lbs.
Prowlers RD series (aka: Staggered Block) tread is an excellent track for operating on hard abrasive surfaces like highways, including over small rocks and gravel. This track has a high durometer rating, with an increased carbon black content to make it more gouge and heat resistant. If you are performing power turns on a hot parking lot the rubber on this track wont break down as quickly as it would on other styles.
Please keep in mind you can operate your CAT 279D on all the surfaces listed above, but will have the best performance and return on your investment if you operate mostly on the recommended terrain.
In our industry, you'll find that there are essentially two rubber track options available to you, and they are:
- Standard Grade (Budget Brands)
- Premium Grade (Prowler ™)
A premium grade rubber track is made of all natural rubber compounds that are blended with highly durable synthetics. A high volume of carbon black make premium tracks more heat and gouge resistant, increasing their overall service life when operating on hard abrasive surfaces. Prowler premium tracks also use continuously wound steel cables embedded deep within the thick carcass to build strength and rigidity. Additionally, our steel cables receive a coat of vulcanized wrapped rubber to help protect them from deep gouges and moisture that could corrode them if not protected.
On the other hand, standard grade tracks use lower amounts of carbon black and higher amounts of synthetics making them less heat and gouge resistant. Standard grade tracks also use spliced or overlapped cables that are known to be weaker than continuously wound cables. These same manufactures generally do not coat the inner cords in vulcanized rubber either. All these differences help keep their production cost down, but wont provide the same service and protection that a premium grade track would.
Prowler is a Premium Grade Track System, and we utilize a unique manufacturing technique called FST (Flexural Strength Technology) that stands us apart from our closest competitors. The result of FST is a track that has an abrasion resistant outer track circumference and a more flexible, yet resilient inner track circumference. This creates a track that can flex more freely while engaging your undercarriage components, and still maintain its abrasion and gouge resistance as you crawl over hazardous debris.

How Do You Get Service?
If you believe that your new track is defective, we ask that you do the following before you contact us so that we can quickly resolve the issue:
- Take photographs of the failure. We need to identify what had occurred so that we can take corrective measures to assure this does not happen again. Try to take photographs while the track is still on the machine if you can. If possible, place a measuring tape or stick beside the damage so that we can better judge the size.
- Write down the serial number on the track. The serial number can be found along the outside inner edge of the track embedded into the rubber. You may have to wash off your track to help locate this, but every track will have one.
- Be sure to have the exact name of the individual or business the purchase was made under.
- Take a few photographs of your undercarriage, specifically the drive sprocket. This will help identify if your undercarriage may be having issues, or contributed to the failure.
