  • Patent number: 4865400
    Abstract: A demolition and compaction track shoe and assembly for a crawler vehicle track includes a central opening and diagonally oriented demolition blades protruding sufficiently outwardly to be primarily useful in demolishing large rocks, home appliances, and similar materials of a type generally encountered in a land fill site. The diagonally oriented demolition blades cooperate with transversely disposed grouser blades to obtain a smoother riding, stable, self-cleaning track. The grouser blades extend only part way across the track shoe in a manner leaving a lateral spacing or gap between the adjacent ends of the grousers so as to provide a scissoring action on debris captured between adjacent grousers of adjacent track shoes in the track.
