Mattracks‘ is the original manufacturer of rubber-track conversions, and can equip four-wheel drive vehicles such as small ATVs, SUVs, or trucks up to 80,000 lbs. GVW.
Rubber-track systems keep vehicles mobile, even in the most challenging conditions such as at wind-energy sites.
Since its inception 25 years ago, Mattracks has also been involved in many motion pictures, behind the scenes and in front of the camera.
In 2003, Mattracks was called on to build the base for the T1 Robot in Terminator 3 Rise of the Machines. In 2010, the company was featured on a HMMWV in the blockbuster Inception starring Leonardo DiCaprio. And in 2015, Mattracks provided tracks for a camera truck to get extremely difficult mountain shots in the James Bond installment, Spectre.
Now, in 2017, Mattracks will be featured in the eighth installment of the successful Fast and the Furious franchise dubbed The Fate of the Furious. Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson, as Luke Hobbs, will be driving a Dodge Ram with Mattracks 150M1A2-SAs.
“When it’s time to save the world in the snow, Hobbs becomes the Abominable Iceman in his ICE RAM,” writes Johnson on Twitter last summer. Fate of the Furious opens April 14th worldwide. Mattracks is located in Karlstad, MN, and manufactures over 100 different models of rubber-track conversion systems.
