GeoGrips are individually vulcanised rubber pads with internal core metals. This type of pad is known as a roadliner pad. They are easily fitted to the undercarriage of excavators and other machines in the same way as conventional steel shoes. GeoGrips are a good alternative to large steel tracks which damage the ground surface and for which continuous rubber tracks are not available.
Bridgestone was first to invent this type of pad and has many years of development and sales experience supplying GeoGrips and Roadliners to the construction market.
GeoGrips or Roadliners are fitted using four bolts (not included) directly onto the track chain links of the machine undercarriage.
Individual worn or damaged GeoGrips are easily replaced in minutes, thereby reducing downtime.
Damage to roads and other surfaces caused by traditional steel shoes is avoided.
Vibration and noise are reduced compared to steel tracks.
GeoGrips are manufactured using one of Bridgestone's high durability anti-external-cut and anti-chunking rubber compounds. Thanks to Bridgestone's high quality advanced rubber and thick rubber volume, GeoGrips provide much higher durability than common clip on type pads.
