GENERAL INFORMATIONGENERAL INFORMATIONAll figures, information or photos presented in this documentare up to date at the time of publication. However, they maychange without notice.Read and follow indications of the SxS user manual andinstallation guidelines carefully. Their contents remainsapplicable after installating of the System.This document should be read by every person who drives theSxS equipped with the System.This document is an integral part of the System. Pass it alongto any new System owner.Consult legal authorities where you drive your SxS equippedwith the System before usage to ensure that you respect allapplicable laws and regulations.SxS Track Systems are designed to reduce ground pressureand increase vehicle traction. However, during normaloperating conditions, vehicle speed will be reduced, comparedto a wheeled vehicle.HINTS AND TIPSBefore leaving for an excursion, make sure you have thefollowing within arms reach: 13 mm, 14 mm, 15 mm, 16 mm,17 mm, and 19 mm wrenches and sockets, an axe, a shovel, atow cable, a lifting jack and an adjustable wrench.Generally, the slower you go, the better the traction will be.For riding on excursions on unknown or remote terrain, makesure you have a cellular phone or satellite phone, a first aid kitand spare parts in your possession.When driving off trails, always be cautious to the presence ofhidden obstacles.When driving in deep snow, do not intentionally spin the track(tracks keep on turning while the vehicule does not).This couldcause the vehicle to get stuck.4

USER NOTICE AND DISCLAIMERUSER NOTICE AND DISCLAIMERThe Camso UTV T4S System was initially designed to be usedin winter conditions and was then adapted to be used in fall andspring conditions.This document holds important information regarding driving anSxS equipped with the Camso UTV T4S System by Camso. Itis mandatory that every user takes the time to carefully read,understand and then consult this reference manual and userguide as well as the SxS owner's manual as needed. When purchasing either a new or used Track System, the user mustobtain all documentation related to the System, includingmanuals and guides related to the SxS on which the System isinstalled.If need be, contact the Camso products dealer nearestto you to obtain any additional information. You may alsoconsult the Camso Web site at www.camso.co and contact ourtechnical support by email at [email protected] believes that there are certain risks related to theinstallation and use of the System. Our experience shows thatthe System is safe. However, the user must be aware of therisks related with driving a SxS with the particularities of thistype of System. The SxS driver must, at all times, respect allapplicable laws and regulations, the indications of the Systemmanufacturer and the indications from the vehicle manufacturerfixed by law, namely when age restrictions exist and SxS baseequipment is required (headlights, flashers and brake lights,rearview mirror, etc.). The user must always wear adequatesafety equipment, such as a helmet, safety glasses (or visor),protective clothing, boots and gloves. It is understood thatdriving while impaired or intoxicated presents a danger for theSxS user and others and is against the law.The System consists of many moving parts, includingtransmission wheels. If an object lodges itself or becomesjammed into the System and blocks the track, it is mandatory tostop the engine and the vehicle and apply the security brakebefore removing object said. By avoiding to do so, the userexposes himself to sudden movement of the SxS or tobreakage of a part or component coming from the System,which could cause severe injuries. It is also very important towear full length clothing and always avoid hanging or stringyaccessories.Driving a SxS equipped with such a System requires particularprecautions and a knowledge of proper driving techniques ofsuch vehicles. An evaluation by the user of the conditions andterrain (state of the ground, grade of hill, density of snow, etc.)is equally essential. A SxS equipped with a System cannotcompete and/or be used to perform stunts, acrobatics or otherexploits, as these could result in loss of control or severeinjuries.6

USER NOTICE AND DISCLAIMERInsufficient knowledge of a SxS during down hill riding, climbsand crossing of obstacles and turns can result in tipping or rollover, and can cause severe injuries.Carrying a passenger, a load or attaching a tow can cause theSxS to be less stable, and affect driveability. Unless otherwiseprescribed by law and by the SxS manufacturer, you must notcarry a passenger, loads or tow any objects.The installation of a System: Increases ground clearance. Changes the center of gravity. Increases the SxS width and weight. Reduces ground pressure.These parameters will effectively change driving characteristicsof a SxS equipped with the System.Consequently, it is highly recommended that the user adapthis driving style in function of the new characteristicsmentioned above. The driver must always use caution whenhe crosses obstacles, circulates through narrow paths, meetsvehicles coming in the opposing direction, etc.As it was designed, the System will considerably reduce theSxS top speed and can falsify the speedometer. Generally, theSystem transmission wheel diameter is less than that of the tire.Therefore, the vehicle speed will be less than that actuallydisplayed. Whether the SxS is equipped or not with the System,users must always adapt the speed to actual driving conditions.Users must never exceed speed limits or drive faster than theircapacities allow. Excessive speed remains one of the maincauses of severe accidents on SxS.Camso is proud to offer SxS conversion kits within its widerange of products. SxS Track Systems are not only reliable, butsafe. However, there are risks inherent to driving a SxSequipped with the System. It is therefore very important that anydriver familiarizes himself with proper driving techniques of aSxS equipped with a System, and that he adapts his driving tohis level of experience and continually evaluates operatingconditions and terrain to safely and efficiently make the best ofthese Camso SxS Track Systems.7

USING THE SxS WITH TRACKSUSING THE SxS WITH TRACKSWhen using a vehicle equipped with Track Systems, it isimportant to observe the safety recommendations. As driving avehicle equipped with Track Systems is different from driving avehicle with wheels, it is strongly recommended that the safetyguidelines provided below are followed to prevent anyaccidents and serious malfunctions that could affect theoccupants, the vehicle or the Track Systems from occurring.NOTE: Non-compliance with usage recommendations can lead to awarranty claim refusal.Pre-use verification WARNINGBefore each ride make sure that the wheels and movingparts of the System are free and that they are not frozen orstuck on the frame.8

USING THE SxS WITH TRACKSSteep descents WARNINGIt is not advisable to change direction during steepdescents. This can lead to a serious malfunction of theSxS’s steering system and Track Systems. During a steepdescent, it is advisable to keep the handlebars in a forwarddirection and to begin turning when the SxS is on flatground, thus to avoid subjecting the components of thevehicle and the System to any high stress.9

USING THE SxS WITH TRACKSDescending and being stuck in reverse WARNINGIf the rear Track Systems get stuck in the snow, avoidmoving or towing the vehicle in reverse to ease it from itsposition, as this could lead to a malfunction of theSystems. If possible, move it in the forward direction to freeit from the snow. It is advisable to remove the snow fromthe top of the rear Track Systems and to compact it usingyour feet, behind the Systems to dislodge the track.Shovelling remains the best alternative in this situation.10

USING THE SxS WITH TRACKSTowing a vehicle out of the snow WARNINGIf your vehicle must be towed out of the snow, never tow itin the direction in which it sank. Tow the vehicle in thedirection of the trail it left as it became stuck.11

USING THE SxS WITH TRACKSDriving over an obstacleDriving over a steep ridge WARNINGIt is not advisable to attempt to drive over an obstacle, suchas a tree trunk, big rock or steep ridge that could lodgeitself between the front and the rear Track Systems andimmobilize the vehicle. The best option remains to bypassthis type of obstacle.12

USING THE SxS WITH TRACKSDriving over an obstacle taller than 30 cm [12 in] WARNINGIt is not advisable to attempt to drive over an obstacle tallerthan 30 cm [12 in], such as a tree trunk, stump or big rock. Ifthe situation occurs, insert a log or a rock to lower theheight of the obstacle and facilitate driving over theobstacle.13

USING THE SxS WITH TRACKSExceeding the anti-rotation stroke on rough terrain WARNINGNever exceed anti-rotation stroke of the front and rear TrackSystems, System or vehicle failure may occur. It isrecommended to drive on a surface on which the TrackSystem is always fully supported.14

USING THE SxS WITH TRACKSSharp turns in locked 4x4 mode WARNINGNever do sharp turns in locked differential 4x4 mode on asticky terrain without lubrication. The Track System isdesigned to slip into the drive system, keeping the vehiclefrom being overloaded.NOTE: Some vehicles do not have unlocked 4x4 mode on the reardifferential. These vehicles should avoid the situation describedabove and take wider turns instead.15

USING THE SxS WITH TRACKSJumping WARNINGJumping with vehicles equipped with Track Systems is notrecommended. These Systems were not designed to carryout this type of operation. A SxS equipped with the Systemmust never be used for the following activities: races,rallies, jumps, stunts, acrobatics or any other extremeapplications.16

USING THE SxS WITH TRACKSTrack Systems operating in water and mud WARNINGIf Track Systems are used in wet conditions, submerged inwater and/or mud, it is important to consult the TrackSystems’ maintenance chart and to observe themaintenance intervals in this manual for commercial,industrial and abrasive conditions use.17

USING THE SxS WITH TRACKSLocation of the towing cable WARNINGIf your vehicle must be towed out of the snow, do notsecure the cable on the Track Systems to tow the vehicle,the towing cable must be fixed on the vehicle frame.Special recommendations WARNINGNever exceed vehicle cargo and tow capacity specified byyour vehicle manufacturer on any type of terrain. WARNINGIn loaded / working mode (100 kg and over) reducesignificantly your speed and be extra careful on roughterrain. WARNINGReduce your speed at all times; Track Systems installed ona vehicle do not have the same absorption capacity as tires. WARNINGAlways operate in 4x4 mode, this significantly reducespossibility of derailing in any conditions. WARNINGIt is the driver’s responsibility to verify that the air intake ofthe vehicle is well adapted to weather conditions and is notblocked by snow accumulation.18

USING THE SxS WITH TRACKS WARNINGThe driver must remain vigilant and cautious at all times.Snow and mud can hide dangerous obstacles. WARNINGWhen travelling in groups, people following vehiclesequipped with Track Systems should by warned, as trackscan propel dangerous objects. Be especially cautious on“rocky” trails. WARNINGAdapt your driving style to surrounding conditions(weather, traffic, etc.) and to your driving abilities. WARNINGAllow for a greater braking distance and periodically applythe brakes while driving to prevent ice buildup on brakecomponents. WARNINGAlways follow the SxS manufacturer's safety rules andrecommendations regarding, for example passengerstransportation, maximum loads, etc. WARNINGIt is the driver’s responsibility to follow the recommendedscheduled maintenance further described in this manual.19
