Depends on what you mean by legit. What they are selling is 350 rails that they are not smart enough to realize that there are other factors to consider. 1. Number of links, it is not a one size fits all proposition 2. You need to rerim your old sprockets to make them work on the older crawlers
3. " Check your part number before ordering." There is no part number to check, their aftermarket number corresponds to no Deere number, so that statement is pointless.
Judging by their part number, these are 33 link chains, which fits no Deere crawler. I am guessing that if you contacted them, you might be able to get the correct link count for your crawler, but you still need to rerim your sprockets to make it work, so add another $400 give or take.

Thanks for the info. I knew. from reading this site. that reriming and using 350 tracks was an option. I will do it someday. My crawler jumps a track occasionally (3 time in 10 years) and I hate it. It is either raining or snowing. I like mechanicing in the shop beside the wood stove. Thanks again.

Not sure the brand but I had an opportunity to talk to Berko factory engineers last week at the mining show in las vegas. They confirmed that Berko does NOT have a product that fits the 420C (for what it is worth). I am "collecting" used 420c rails. Close to getting enough to take to Lavoy for a full set of repin/rebush. A previous owner had apparently put 40C rails on my 420C and they are well worn so this is a near term high priority issue

Thanks for the info. My sprockets are worn, I switched sides with them. I probably need to rerim and replace tracks.
