Default Track Roller Guides

On a lot of crawlers I notice they fit these guards. Somewhere I read that they aren't there to keep the track on, but in reality do they help keep it running in line - like for example running forward and back across the side of a hill?

Do these weld to the frame or bolt up? only the parts book doesn't seem to indicate any means of attaching them

Richard, these Guards are Welded onto the Underside of the track Frame, then Wear Shoe's are Bolted to them, they were an extra for a long time when Ordering your New Tractor, plus you could Order the full Roller Guard Package, it was a big Cost in its Day.

The full roller guards are a pain in the arse.

OK, so best off to avoid these things....just wondered if they helped keep more worn/slack tracks straight on to the rollers/sprocket/idlers

Sean precisly, Richard, centre guides are good but with full guides, roller replacement is a much longer job....and allsorts gets caught up in them.
