Frequently Asked Questions

We gathered the best of our product experts knowledge to make sure we answer all of your questions.

Machine power

How much power does it take to use these tracks?

Less than with tires ! Camso track systems have very low power requirements, and with the undercarriage design, you gain torque. How? The undercarriage drive sprocket is smaller than your ATV tire (by about 1/3). This gears down the power to a drive ratio that delivers more power to your tracks.

Installation and maintenance

​ When I change my ATV/SxS, will I be able to transfer my track system to my new machine? ​

Yes. Camso track systems are designed to be installed on almost any 4x4 ATV or SxS model. Transfer kits are available from Camso to upgrade your track system. Contact your dealer to learn more.

How long does it take to switch between tracks and tires?

After the dealer initially installs your track system, changing back and forth between tracks and tires requires about the same amount of time as simply changing tires.*

*Installation time may vary depending on vehicle make and model.

Do I have to make modifications to my ATV/SxS to install a Camso track system?

No – in most cases, you’Il need some hardware and brackets. Consult your installation guide for more information.

Product performance

How easy is it to steer my ATV/SxS with a Camso track system?

Steering is about as easy as it is with tires, except when driving very slowy or through heavy, wet snow or thick, deep mud.

Will the tracks handle mud, snow, and rocks?

Yes, and almost anything else. The tread design and extra surface contact you have with track systems give you outstanding traction on soft terrain like deep snow or mud and a great grip on rocky surfaces. Track systems also distribute weight better, providing maximum flotation to keep the vehicle from sinking in snow, mud, sand, or swamp.

Will a track system make my ATV/SxS more likely to tip?

No. Although you gain about 4 inches of vehicle clearance with a Camso track system installed, the additional weight near ground level and the longer, wider wheel base actually increase stability.

Track life

How long do the tracks last?

Tracks will provide many, many miles of enjoyment and service. Track life, just like tire life, depends on a number of factors, including vehicle weight, speed, and the kind of surfaces you travel on.
