Red Zone is a spin-off from the Robotics Institute
at Carnegie-Mellon University.  They specialize in
one-of-a-kind robots for clean-up of nuclear facilities
or hazardous waste.  Consequently, their tracks
are custom cast to fit their products.

I would be happy to call Red Whittaker, their founder,
to inquire if they cast tracks themselves, or if they
contract the casting.  Either way, their tracks will cost
about as much as those for Grillo dumpers or Honda
power carriers (~$300/track).


P.S.  One of their used robots (similar to Pioneer) is
currently on the market for $1.5M if you are interested
in cleaning up your back yard.
