Tough jobs are no match. The 1150 XR Professional Series™ small engine for outdoor power equipment features Overhead Valve (OHV) technology, the DuraLube™ Splash Lubrication System and a host of rugged components to bring you the precise amount of power, performance and durability you need for increasing challenges. – Want to use your own engine? No Problem! We now offer the RS196K without the engine!
This consistent and precise trademarked track design, has 7x greater sprocket support compared to a single sprocket design. The drive behind the MAGNATRAC® TCP™ system is the matched sprockets of the rear drive and front idler sprocket. Simultaneously engaging both track chains, provides redundancy in case of debris interference.
The MAGNATRAC® turns 360 degrees in half the space. Because you can rotate the tracks in opposite directions at the same time, the RS196K turns in it’s own length. The RS196K turns in just over 5 ft. A comparably powered compact tractor requires more than twice the space – over 10 ft. of clear space to turn around. Left and right drive handles are centered with the operator, giving easy access to left and right track controls. Instant power to forward and reverse, means no shifting gears, just push one handle forward and the other rearward to turn on a dime.
While firmly seated from the operator seat, you can fully operate the MAGNATRAC® RS196K. Dash mounted throttle and choke, make the RS196K easy to start, with no need to get off of the unit to mess with any controls.
Simple and easy to turn hood knobs, give quick access to the engine compartment, while strong pivot bolts allow the hood to stay up for easy fuel refilling and checking of engine oil level. Thoughtfully designed grill, allows for engine exhaust to come straight out of the MAGNATRAC®, away from the operator.
Deluxe non slip pads offer additional safety on a wet, damp day. Simple to use pull brake allows for easy access to the brake while going down a hill or for transport on a trailer. Strong, well designed fenders and fender brackets support even the heavier operator.
Made in the USA quality is what you see when you look at a MAGNATRAC® RS196K up close and personal. Thoughtful design, quality craftsmanship are abundant throughout the unit. Superior fabricating, machining and robot welded components give you peace of mind, that the MAGNATRAC® RS196K means business!

|A.||We do not. We do offer the RS196K (D-I-Y Kit) without an engine, so you can supply your own. We do have a fair amount of people that will purchase an engine on their own and install it in the RS196K. Please keep in mind, if you do this, we cannot offer any engineering help. Your warranty may be affected as well. Another item of note, there is a lot of gearing built into both of those machines, which transfers into more power.|

|A.||I think there is some confusion here. The RS196K Assembly manual is available to purchase if you'd like to take a look at the RS196K prior to purchase. Some customers will buy it ahead of time, to see if it is a project that they'd like to tackle. If you purchase a RS196K, it does come with the assembly manual. There is a $39 fee for the manual, but keep in mind it comes with a $50 coupon, that we subtract at the time of purchase. Your basically getting it for free. Does that make sense? Please call us at 1-877-828-8323 if you have additional questions.|

|A.||The average assembly build time on a RS196K would be approx. 23 to 36 hours, including the paint time of the parts. This can vary due to how much experience you have with painting. The paint dry times vary as well based on each environment that a person is working in. Cordless tools or pneumatic air tools (like an air compressor and air ratchets) will help in making sure the assembly process goes smoothly and all nuts and bolts will be properly tightened.|

|A.||Great question! Yes, the RS196K can be purchased without an engine. It will save you approx. $400 if you use your own engine. Please keep in mind, any deviations from our design may affect the warranty coverage. Our techs cannot help with any engineering questions regarding any untested designs. For more detailed information, please purchase the RS196K Assembly manual in the overview section, on this page. > https://struckcorp.com/products/magnatrac-rs196k/|

|A.||A Magnatrac has a very low center of gravity and great traction, so in general terms they can do much better than a wheeled tractor. Read more about the benefits of a MAGNATRAC here. As far as a published slope and degree angle, we don't publish anything more than what we feel is safe. The number that we provide is 30% maximum gradeability.|

|A.||Great question! As far as a company policy, no you cannot. We only offer manual attachments for the RS196K. That being said, it is a home built, d-i-y kit, so other customers have customized the RS196K to their liking. For example: paint it another color, etc. For more information on the Power Pack for the MAGNATRAC RS1000, you can download this attachment manual.|
