I just put a set of Tuff-pads on a Midi-Excavator. They were bolt-on, and
were formed to fit to close tolerance. This Company has loads of patterns,
and can make (neoprene?)pads for just about any tracked vehicle...(their
claim, not mine).....but they may not have a pattern cut for a T72 yet. cost
for my Hitachi w/66 pads, +/-$2800 , 1/3 the cost of replacement rubber
tracks....my $.02 Derek----- Original Message -----
