Looking to get more road speed out of your tracked combine as you move from field to field?
Camso believes it has the solution you’ve been looking for in its new Conversion Track System – CTS High Speed. The system was recently unveiled at the 2017 National Farm Machinery Show in Louisville, Kentucky.
In this video, Martin Lunkenbein, Camso’s business line executive director for agriculture, explains that CTS High Speed allows tracked harvesting machines to reach road speeds similar to wheeled combines with its integrated final drive system. It matches the right gear to the right speed, allowing combines to move faster from field to field.
CTS High Speed features a frame suspension system and double oscillating wheels that improve ground contact on uneven surfaces, improve machine stability and header placement for more efficient harvesting and provide better overall operator comfort.

“For many customers with spread-out field locations, this new CTS High Speed for combines is the first and only 100 percent bolt-on solution that allows operators to achieve road speeds comparable to wheeled machines,” says Lunkenbein. The conversion track system will be available for the 2017 harvest season for John Deere STS and S Series Combines.
Lunkenbein also notes that CTS High Speed’s 12% larger footprint further reduces ground compaction and field damage to maximize the quality of harvesting operations. The new conversion track system also increases the combine’s mobility and flotation for better access to fields with soft ground conditions.
