Contractors now have the options of choosing the BLS Poly Bolt-On TUFPADS track pads, made by BLS Enterprises Inc. of Itasca, Ill., factory installed on their Ingersoll-Rand milling machines.
Choosing polyurethane track pads instead of rubber will provide contractors with proven longer wear. Also, with the added benefits of the bolt-on style, contractors will save up to 50% on replacement costs by reusing the steel triple-grouser shoes and 25 to 30% on replacement labor time due to the ease of installation and removal.
Another option now available from BLS are the new TUFPADS Blues track pads. These new track pads, distinguishable by their blue material, have proven through actual field tests on asphalt milling machines to outlast the premium black polyurethane track pads by 15 to 30%.
With the introduction of the MT-2000 milling machine, Ingersoll-Rand now offers equipment for each phase of roadway construction and rehabilitation, from milling to compaction. The MT-2000 brings innovation to milling equipment through exclusive features that increase productivity, serviceability and overall safety.
