Gilbert unique offer combines a two-track conversion kit, a front blade and a rear drag to enable farm tractors to be transformed into heavy-duty trail groomers. Through the years, the MCS Series has built itself a strong reputation in the snow grooming industry. Introduced in 1993, Gilbert two-track system has provided the snowmobile clubs with an innovative grooming solution to meet the challenges in terms of low operating costs, flotation, security and maintenance. Equipped with steel cleat track system, the MCS Series, also known as The Trail Master, is the perfect snow groomer for deep and powered snow conditions.
FEATURES AND BENEFITS
Chassis design allows optimal stability and maximum continuous grip making Gilbert snow groomer unbeatable on winding trails and steep slopes.
MCS Series’ steel cleat tracks, made of specially shaped high resistance steel alloy, operate with an exclusive and patented slider system that allows exceptional flotation and constant contact for maximum grip. Intermediate crawler tracks can be added for smoother ride and less vibration.
Gilbert two tracks design allows both tracks to operate in parallel at all times in order to maximize traction and drive through the most challenging trails !
Internal drive sprockets combined with high performance suspension systems on boogie wheels provide a smooth ride and maximum operator comfort for hours on end.
LOW OPERATING COSTS
Due to the modular frame design, the tractor rests on the chassis. The front blade and the rear drag are attached directly to the chassis: there is no stress on the tractor for greater durability. The simple and robust frame allows easy and fast maintenance for unmatched reliability.
LOW FUEL CONSUMPTION
Gilbert design optimizes the transfer of energy from the tractor to the tracks ; there is no wasted energy ! Therefore, the snow groomer requires a two-wheel drive tractor which is more affordable and more fuel efficient than a four-wheel drive tractor.
Gilbert’s exclusive front blade tripping system continually operates to maximize the quantity of snow going underneath the rear drag during grooming application to improve trail durability. The tripping system also protects the chassis, tractor and operator against impacts.
