Those sound like original ice cleats for the 200-A. Of coarse, any ice cleat will work but if you are looking for originality then reproducing the missing ones is best.

I am also in the same situation with these things. I have 44 of them, but i am also building a track and was going to use these. So if i end up doing something differant, we can figure something out or if u use something else let me know! 10 more would be nice to have.

I am considering building a new set of 200 200A tracks just to have a spare set
Just checking to see if anyone has a source four three-quarter inch C channel to fabricate new ice cleats for Husky 200 200A tracks I Have checked with all my local steel suppliers and none are able to source it
Or has someone come up with an alternative part product or solution

Are these metal U Channel cleats straight across the length of the legs or are they humped in the middle? For some reason, I always thought them to be humped for easier steering on hard snow.

If they are straight, wouldn't one would think this U channel to be a standard size?

Do we think they are hardened steel or just regular mild steel?

To the best of my knowledge I believe it is just mild steel and a standard size. As I mentioned, it measures 3/4” wide and my problem is that my local suppliers can only get 1” wide but I do believe 3/4” is still available. I also believe it is just flat and not not humped in the middle as you thought as it lays flat against the wood cleat.
Looking in the parts manual it’s interesting that it’s actually called steel channel cleat and not cleat or ice cleat. Just an observation.
