CAT 279D Premium Aftermarket Rubber Tracks
Make Prowler your first choice for Premium Grade Quality aftermarket rubber tracks for your CAT 279D Compact Track Loader.
After years of product testing and innovative engineering, Prowler out-performs all other aftermarket brands with our latest technology in rubber molds and formulation. Prowler offers a state-of-the-art rubber track design accompanied by a wide selection of tread pattern options giving your CAT 279D unmatched efficiency, cross-application usability, and increased service life.
Prowler’s FST (Flexural Strength Technology) production process allows the inner circumference of the track to be made of a lower durometer rated rubber that will allow better flexibility when engaging your CAT 279D undercarriage components such as the drive sprocket, rollers, and idler wheels. The outer circumference of the track is composed of a higher durometer rated rubber that provides the utmost level of gouge and abrasion resistance.
Our tread pattern options for the CAT 279D are not simply designed for brand identity, they serve four significant purposes;
- Superior mobility and efficiency
- Better track wear and increased protection
- Reduced vibration
- Extended service life for a lower hourly operating cost
Prowler’s production facility began producing the annular splice free (continuous wound cable) rubber track in 1998, upgrading its overall quality and strength. In 2005 Prowler combined with other manufacturers to help engineer a rubber track that would bring together all the benefits of the joining supply companies. The result of our efforts was the development of a premium grade rubber track that met the demands of our clients nationwide.
Prowler CTL Tread Patterns Explained
- AT Tread Features and Benefits
AT Tread Design Description
Prowlers AT series (All Terrain) track is our best Turf Friendly option. This track has a slightly lower durometer rating allowing it to be more forgiving and less likely to scar turf when pivoting or running at low and high speeds. The AT tread has many cutting edges along its footprint too, making it a nice option for pushing snow during the winter months.
AT Series Tread Preferred Applications
- C-Lug Tread Features and Benefits
C-Lug Tread Design Description
The C-lug tread is the perfect option to have when you operate on both highway and off-road applications. Its highly durable, and has lots of cutting edges for increased traction and performance. Prowlers notched pad eliminates stress splits cause by constant flexing, commonly discovered during colder seasons when the rubber is real tight at fresh starts.

- RD Tread Features and Benefits
RD Tread Design Description
The Prowler RD series (Staggered Block) is an excellent track for operating on hard abrasive surfaces like highways, including over small rocks and gravel. This track has a high durometer rating, with an increased Carbon Black content to make it more gouge and heat resistant. If you are performing power turns on a hot parking lot the rubber on this track won’t break down as quickly as it would on other styles.

- EXT Tread Features and Benefits
EXT Tread Design Description
The Prowler EXT (Extreme) rubber tracks are by far the most aggressive in the industry, designed for increased performance while operating within mud and snow. The EXT tread provides better maneuverability while operating on soft soils, and provides better gripping power and decreased stopping distances. Operators that push snow during the off season absolutely appreciate the performance of this tread style.
EXT Series Tread Preferred Applications
- Z Tread Features and Benefits
Z Tread Design Description
Similar to our AT Series (Multi-bar) turf tread design, the Z pattern provides you another turf friendly option that has a bit more traction for both pushing and back filling. The Z tread ranks second in our line-up as one of our best snow clearing options. (2nd to our EXT Tread)
Z Series Tread Preferred Applications
- CT Tread Features and Benefits
CT Super Duty Tread Design Description
The 18″ (450mm) wide CT tread is only available for most Mustang, Gehl, and Takeuchi track loaders that requires a 100mm pitch track. The extra wide lugs will have a hard outer circumference that makes this track more gouge resistant for working in more harsh environments.
