Catipillar Skidsteer traction with carbide studsCan be used on:

  • Loaders
  • Skidsteers
  • Graders
  • Backhoes
  • Tractors

Gripmaster Tire and Track Studs are designed for use in all snow-removal, construction, mining and farm vehicles where ice, hard-pack or rocky terrain makes traction difficult. The large, solid carbide head really digs in to all hard and icy surfaces. Better than chains and easier to install than chains; Gripmasters provide better bite and cost less than chains. Gripmaster Ice Studs can be installed easily on all rubber-tired or tracked vehicles to eliminate spinning and side slipping that wears down expensive tires and tracks and loses time on the job.  Gripmaster Ice Studs are made for all conditions and surfaces where traction is a problem. The largest carbide head will out-perform and out last all other brands – several seasons.

  • Better than chains to prevent side-slipping, less damage to tires
  • Largest carbide head for best bite and longest wear
  • Self-tapping threads need no drilling and won’t pull out
  • Easy to install and remove
  • Heat-treated alloy steel body
  • Recommended installation 2-4 studs per lug
