They might, but why would you want them? The camoplast tracks function noticably better.

I sat at the top of a hill several months back waving a one-hundred dollar bill at a friend if he could with his machine make to the top of the hill. He never did. Same machine except he has apache tracks and I have camoplast.

Last week, I winched him out twice while trying to cross a snow covered stream. I went through both ways with absolutely no issues and have gone across there dozens of times this winter.

That isn't mentioning how well camoplast stands behind their tracks. Talk with the guys at atvtracks.net. I had a wheel come off last week. It damaged the track somewhat. Friday I sent a picture of the serial number of the tracks, a picture of the missing wheel, and a picture of the damaged track. (I still rode the track over the weekend.) Camoplast said they would send out some new parts on Monday. We had the parts in Laramie, Wyoming (not some major city) on Tuesday. It is Wednesday and the new wheel and new track are installed on my machine.

Kudos to Camoplast!!!!!! Absolutely Fantastic Customer Service!!!!!

I would be interested in your experience with the two track systems. Do you have any personal first-hand knowledge? Based on your statement, you were told something about them. I could have cared less which system I bought, but talk to people who run them all and everyone will say Camoplast tracks work better.

The apache tracks work, but remember, they are designed to only be used in snow. It is quite often that we run into times when we have to ride on a dry section of road.

Based on a side-by-side comparison, on the exact same machine, I regularly have to winch, dig, or pull my friend out of places where I have just gone or will go after he is unstuck.

I've sat at the top of hills where the brand new outlander 800's with apache tracks couldn't make it. Our last ride, going back into some remote cabins where we had to make several snow bridge stream crossings, the same machine with probably 200 lbs. less weight, fell through twice in an area where I drove across with no issues, and the apache track machine had to be winched out.

When cummins says "just as good", I'm wondering if he means quality because they don't function as well when making new track in deep snow.

Once again last night. My friend and I running the same machine. He has Apache tracks and I have Camoplast. Even in my tracks, he couldn't follow me up a couple of hills.

Here's a picture of the difference between the tracks.



I took this picture of my friend trying to climb this hill. You see how far has made it. Not very far. After him trying about six times. I drove right up and around him all the way to the top and across to the left. He never made it past where you see him at in the photo even with a dozen or so tries.

Yep, this friend wants to sell his Apache tracks and buy the tatou 4s tracks so that he can ride with me. At the beginning of the year I was rubbing it in some, now, I feel bad when he can't follow me and I even get worried from time to time that we will go over a hill that he can't get back up.

If anyone is interested in a new this year set of Apache tracks let me know. He would like to get $2600 out of them.
