We have rented SlatTrax to customers who report great results including one who “would have not gotten the job without SlatTrax”. Another contractor used SlatTrax to cross the corner of marsh-without damaging the environment. We see this product being of value to a wide variety of contractors and utilities.

SlatTrax is a great product – easy to use and versatile. Your product has saved us countless man hours and minimized back strain.

The crew said that it was extremely easy to figure out and add sections as needed. In the pictures, we have 350 LF laid out on site. These are so worth the investment! We appreciate you getting these to us and following up!

SlatTrax was a welcome addition to our site. Since all of our work is done on a golf course, we have to make sure we don’t damage the turf. We deployed SlatTrax to protect the edge of the cart paths and the grass from heavy forklift traffic, and the mats held up great to any and all challenges.

The original version of SlatTrax was introduced in 2011 and sold to a number of National Cemeteries. In 2016 the new and improved (current) system was introduced. DIY was introduced in 2018.

Rubber-tracked or wheeled equipment is preferred. Steel tracks typically create too much of a point load and should be avoided.

The load-bearing capacity depends on the surface below the Trax. Holes, rocks, debris, etc. may result in damage to the Trax. However individual slat pieces are easily replaced. We see and hear of good results from customers with skid loaders, stump-grinding equipment, bucket trucks, excavators, lifts, and dump trucks generally up to 80,000 lbs.

SlatTrax were designed for roadways (or haul roads) – temporary roads or lanes. Other products can be used for that as well, but for the fastest layout and retrieval as well as stability (all sections easily connected) SlatTrax would be preferred. Unlike other options, the sections of Trax link together for stability and the Grip straps make them easy to handle. The ground can be saved by moving them off of grass overnight to allow turf to breathe. Repair costs are reduced or eliminated entirely. Productivity of crews and reduction of injuries will benefit any operation.

Alturnamats are preferred for random or scattered use of mats such as for felling tree limbs, material staging platforms, under-support for outrigger pads, and support for larger equipment including cranes. We also recommend a combination of mats and SlatTrax for sharper turn cornering – providing a larger covered radius for various vehicles. SlatTrax are not designed for spin turns of skid loaders.

Trax are sold independently. Additional Trax can be handled manually and connected to the SlatTrax attachment as necessary. – either in “rolled” format or directly from pallets of DIY product.

Increasing productivity of work crews results in savings and profitability. The ease of deployment and retrieval of this ground cover shifts focus to the job at hand while reducing the need to repair damaged grounds, ruts, etc. Accessing jobsites on some occasions, when otherwise saturated grounds would prevent that, results in more profitable workdays. Leave the costs of renovations in bids and proposals and pay off the cost of SlatTrax equipment over a few jobs.

Productivity is a key concern when allocation of human resources to projects along with keeping the public satisfied. Avoiding unnecessary time to protect grounds or providing temporary roads for worksite access increases productivity. Eliminating unnecessary ground repairs results in savings on budgets which can otherwise be used for equipment and other more critical needs while making customers and taxpayers happier.

It is not likely that we would be able to demonstrate at your site, but we may be able to refer you to others in your area using our SlatTrax. There are options to consider small purchase quantities of Trax to trial with your equipment and crews.

We offer a one-year warranty on our product which primarily covers equipment issues on our SlatTrax Systems. The Trax themselves may break under normal use; we can’t cover replacement costs of slats when they break due to large holes, tree roots, etc. Normally the sections can still be used in those circumstances, but replacement materials are available for repairs which are easily accomplished by removing fasteners, replacing individual slats, and refastening the strapping to the slats.

When connected as advised, the mass linear weight of SlatTrax helps to keep that roadway in position. Installing a portion of the road over the crest of a hill will help. In some cases, staking the roadway may be necessary using landscape stakes (drill ¾” holes in the road as needed and insert long steel stakes). works well on hillsides and grades, but we’re unable to say how steep is too steep due to the number of variables – humidity, precipitation, tire/track condition, weight, angle, ground conditions, capacity, driver skill etc. If installing SlatTrax on a hillside/grade, staking the road will help keep the roads in place as will the weight of the road itself.

In a hill/grade application, we recommend testing and adjusting the roads as needed until customers see the performance they want.

If the ground surface is bare/muddy, installing landscape fabric first, then the road will prevent mud from adhering to the underside of the road and slowing down retrieval.

Yes, but we’d like to know more about your specific situation and intended use of SlatTrax. We’d like to know your location, equipment you will run on these temporary roads, etc.
