TrackBack Fitting Guidelines

1. Refitting Tracks Safely

When fitting TrackBacks ensure chain between the TrackBacks is tight. If required can adjust chain by rotating half a turn or more.

2. Rejoin Track Chains

Fit a pair of track backs to each side of the join then fit a chain block to the bottom holes and pull together.

3. Track Winch

To use as a winch, chains/cables can be fitted to the centre of the TrackBacks on one or both tracks. After anchoring the chains drive yourself forward.

4. Post Attachment

Secure chains around post to the bottom hole of each TrackBack with the post facing forward. Caution: Must remove post before doing a full revolution.

5. Track Chains

Use a chain/cable between TrackBacks for temporary traction.

6. Ultimate Traction

Fit large chains or links between TrackBacks.

7. Steel Pipe Lifter

Use TrackBacks to lift steel pipes into place e.g at a crossing. Caution: Safe work practices are recommended.

8. Emergency Anchor

Fix chain/cable to the TrackBacks. Anchor one end of chain/cable to an anchor point, then lift track and rotate until tensioned.
