This picture dates back to 2004. Several years ago Case made an executive decision to switch to molded rubber shoes on the 580M series backhoes. (After approximately one year, they switched back to rugged laminated shoes). Molded backhoe shoes simply fall apart, sometimes in a day. FlipPad International would offer a molded shoe if we thought it would add value to our backhoe customers. They don't. Molded shoes are cheap to produce, period. Anyway, the 580N series is out and it's molded, again.
We are designing a replacement laminated rubber shoe for the 580N Case series backhoe and it will be available in a few weeks. We promise to offer a strong laminated rubber shoe that will grip, which will stop your Case backhoe from sliding, and it will not chunk out. Our rubber is 100% recycled material, and it's tough stuff. This rugged laminated rubber shoe from FlipPad International will be available in weeks. Case SuperGrip is now available. Call 1-800-FLIPPAD(354-7723) to order.
