Save up to 75% on your Track Wheels

In recent years there has been an increase in demand for rubber tracked tractors.  A key factor in their growth in popularity is that tracks undoubtedly give a better vehicle weight distribution in wet conditions and allow access to fields where the standard four wheeled tractors cannot go.

One drawback of the tracked systems available, is the maintenance expense. Rather than simply replacing worn tyres, as on a traditional four wheeled tractor, the track system requires complete replacement of the wheel once the tyre becomes worn.  However, in 90% of replacements only the tyre is worn, and the steel hub is often perfectly re-usable, adding unnecessary expense to replacement parts. 

Refurbished Tracked Tractor Wheel

To solve this issue, at Clifton Rubber we offer a proven method for replacing worn tyres.  We will strip off the unusable rubber or polyurethane tyre and mould a new tyre directly to the original hub.  We have the capability to refurbish all types of wheel for all types of tracked vehicle, from main drives to the mid and idler wheels, with service exchange wheels available off the shelf for the most popular models.  The result is a high grade, abrasion resistant tyre with good tear strength and longevity.

Tracked Tractor Wheels

Regular feedback from customers confirms that their refurbished wheels offer similar wear characteristics to the original wheels, but at a significant cost saving, often as much as 75% cheaper as going straight to the manufacturer.

With the De-Stoning season upon us, we are delighted to announce our new generation of Agricultural Stars, End Discs and Spacers.

Always striving to improve our product range, we have been working closely with existing customers to introduce both a new production method and a new material.  This has resulted in the creation of new tooling, producing a higher performance product, which is both stronger and longer lasting.

We always encourage customer feedback and want to provide them with the best product for their needs.  Our Engineers have created new moulds and a made improvements to the material used, which help to overcome some minor issues highlighted with the existing range.

These recent developments to our de-stoning components have been welcomed my many of our regular customers.

One commented: “For us, it is essential to use the best components on the market in our equipment.  Downtime is not an option for us which is why quality is key.  We trust Clifton Rubber to deliver this.  Working with them to provide input to improve their production processes has benefited both of us.”

These improvements enhance our reputation as a leading Agricultural component manufacturer. Trusted by many of the leading Original Equipment Manufacturers, we also manufacture and supply a range of Clifton branded aftermarket products which are suitable for various de-stoning machines in use today, including Grimme, Standen, and Reekie.

Supporting Crisis at Christmas

We close off 2021, with sponsoring Crisis at Christmas – a worthwhile cause which our Sales Executive, Andrew Meddings, is devoting 5 days of his time to over the Christmas period. Clifton Rubber will be supporting 10 Guests this Christmas.

If you want to find out a little more, have a read below:

No one should be homeless and alone this Christmas

Crisis is a charity which campaigns on behalf of people experiencing homelessness. At Christmas, they have their Crisis at Christmas campaign when they open day centres across London in schools and colleges – this year in Camden, Bermondsey, Notting Hill, and Hackney.

These provide homeless and isolated people with hot meals and drinks, clothing, showers and haircuts, and access to doctors, dentists, chiropodists, and physiotherapists. There is counselling and advice on housing, employment, welfare, and benefits. Hotel rooms are available where rough sleepers can be referred to if they would like a safe place to stay.

This is supported by over 100 general volunteers, plus others who provide the different services, with each person giving up their time to offer the guests a safe, warm, and friendly environment in which to spend Christmas.

This will be the 9th year that Andrew has volunteered at the City Academy in Hackney where he shares responsibility with other senior volunteers for the day to day running of the centre. The charity estimates that it costs £29.06 for each guest to access the services available at Christmas, plus the chance to receive year-round help from the charity which may help them improve their lives.

Andrew says: “I have seen how a hot meal, a conversation with someone, a shower, haircut, clean clothes, or just being warm and dry, can make such a difference to someone who would otherwise be on the streets, and the long term help that Crisis can offer can transform someone’s life.”

Lloyd, one of the Guests said: “They gave me a welcome pack with food, drinks, and showed me to my room! The cup of human kindness just overflowed from every person – it was unreal. I will never forget that Christmas. It made me feel human again’’.
