The Opti-Trak® range of crawler shoes developed by Bradken for the Caterpillar, Hitachi and Komatsu platforms, offers significant advantages over traditional shoe designs. Most traditional shoes are case hardened, but the base metal is softer underneath meaning wear rates increase over time. 

Bradken's Opti-Trak shoes are through hardened to give excellent wear resistance and uniform wear rates all the way through the metal section.

The roller path is supported by Bradken's patented "Pillar of Strength" to prevent crushing of the worn shoe later in its service life.
Other areas of high wear and those subjected to significant impact strikes have been strengthened to provide greater structural integrity.

Opti-Trak crawler shoes are interchangeable with the existing OEM components.
