 Kobelco SK 015 TRACK replacement

I don't know much about buying tracks for my Kobelco SK 015 excavator. But I have found this site in the link below that has my machine listed.
I have no idea of the quality/brand ( think Prowler )of their tracks. See that I can get a set for $588 a set ( + $100 shipping ). Now I don't know if that is a good price or not.
Wonder is this a good place to order from---Is their some other company that others prefer to deal with?

I find that price hard to believe, even the shipping cost. I would expect $3000 for a set perhaps more. Shipping no less than $250. You could be buying inferior tracks---and there's no way to know ahead of time. Even the good and best tracks have been known to have the internal cables split or broken rendering the track useless. I have read that someone offers track rebuilding of the drive teeth themselves if yours are broken off; the rebuild consists of a hard plastic block the bolts on.

Jeff we look for you on Thanksgiving and you failed to show. So we had no turkey!

Skip I have seen their ads before and that is all I know. Your machine is small so cost would be lower. However after almost being burnt in ordering some shafts a couple of years back if you do do use credit or debit card (be sure your debit card is safe like credit card for charge back) but first ask them for referrals who buy from them and spend the time calling a few. Before you call them go on the internet and look up the phone numbers given to be sure they are really the company they tell you and not just rolling back to them. Yes some do that.

Here is a site that you may want to ask this at. They do have large and small equipment sections there. They have helped me some but seldom go there any more as the needs that drove me there have been solved.

Thanks for the link KT---
I did register there but could not post a question---even though I got a email welcome from them----guess I have to wait for activation.
Will check back there later.

Skip it has been about two years or maybe three since I first posted there. Think you had to answer questions on other threads something like 5 times before you could start your own thread or ask your own question again best memory is.

At the time I really used that site was surprised at the number of dealers and people from outside the US on there. I find it very interesting the difference in terms from yes region to region of North America but when you cross the ponds, it can be interesting. By far their strength is big iron but they were good on helping me with tiny iron. There was a dealership in Knoxville that was great to me. Part of it had to do with we both like Orange football teams just different shades.

You are most welcome for the link. Hope it serves you well. KT
