Hello,Skid steer undercarriage has so many variables it is to difficult to predict.
Expert:  catmastertech replied 1 year ago.
It will vary on the amount of use and the environment it is working.

I have seen pushing wet, coarse material on concrete would destroy the belt in about 200 hours.
Expert:  catmastertech replied 1 year ago.
Other machines often had problems working is severe terrain and they would cut or gouge the belts and break cords to the point the belt would not stay on the machine.
Expert:  catmastertech replied 1 year ago.
Normal to light conditions can see service lift of a few thousand hours. More may be possible but, someone will put it on a road and high travel speeds will wear them down too.
