track drive system

looking for a set of track drives. The ones I'm interested came on Craftsman II , Murry and a few others I think. They usually said Trac-Drve on the side. I'm trying to make an assist device for a person in a wheelchair.

Also the one posted needs drive bearings in case anyone is interested. The guy said otherwise in great running condition. FYI

Thanks E350 you rock! I actually found one running for 175. The tracks have some dry rot so I will probably be looking for new ones after I'm done.



Looking for just the rubber tracks to fit the craftsman snowblower. I'm looking for a set thats in good condition not all cracked and rotted out

rotor: Between you and me, I would buy a machine with good track rubber and bad bearings before I would buy a machine with bad tracks but good bearings. Bearings are cheaper to replace.

I didn't know about them till I got it home and really looked at it. I'm in a wheelchair so I was relying on my brother who failed me Ha!

Its not a total loss the motor works good and the chute I'm going to use in my project.

I was hoping I can find a set of tracks that are the same. I have seen some on line but not sure if the will fit. I need to do more research. I was hoping someone has a set they want to get rid of.
