    I am soon to be in posession of 88 pads from a Cat D8T . this is part number I think 329-9269
    I have to verifiy that along with wear , if i remeber correctly they are 45-55% worn 5600 hrs on them in landfill so they have the trapazoid hole in for the sprocket to push crap out of the chains . seems like a waste to throw them in scrap metal when they have plenty of grouser left on them for dirt work , just curious thanks for any info

    I’ve seen contractors weld up track pads because they were so thin they were so wore out they would crack. I think if you wait long enough you’ll find someone to buy them.

    A regular pad at my dealer retails for $107.03 plus tax. That gives you a starting point on the value of the used ones. I'd say 20-30% the cost of new?

    Are they actual landfill pads or heavy duty with straight line grousers?

    Once you figure out the actual percentage of wear apply that percentage to the cost of new and start your advertising at that point.

    i will take some pictures of the new tracks vs the old pads when i get the machine back to the site , i was also thinking of possibly making them like new with the weld on grousers pieces and when it gets near time for track work again i can send the pads down to the track shop and save a little money but that would be totatlly dependent on how much those repairs peices cost vs my welding wire and time to weld , it maybe more worth while to attempt to selll them to a dirt dozer guy

    I'd contact your local independent undercarriage shop if you have one, they might be interested. If the trailing edge is good they are worth a re grouser.
