Specialist OTR tyre range for loaders

27 June, 2017

BKT, available from TRS Tyre and Wheel, have shaped an entire product range for loaders working in off-the-road applications. A tyre line-up conceived to face the challenges on the most differing of terrains – from snowy and icy surfaces to muddy and rocky ones at quarries and mines. BKT offer a comprehensive range featuring extraordinary traction performance, strength, safety for operators at work and to significantly enhance driving comfort.

Loaders are important types of machinery in the OTR sector, since they perform heavy operations on any type of terrain, over long paths, and for a large number of hours of continuous operation. Loaders have to face different conditions and operations. Hence, specific and customised tyres are needed as a response to such complex requirements. 

 On muddy and earthy surfaces, Earthmax SR30 and Earthmax SR49 are main players featuring an L-4 tread. The SR30 is an ideal solution suitable for particularly tough operating conditions, since its multi-ply steel belts along with the rigid block design provide excellent traction, stability and durability. The special tread compound, which has been specifically developed by BKT, enables the tyre to withstand cuts and abrasions as well as to dissipate the heat created during the loaders’ operations.

Earthmax SR49 dominates in tough environments such as mines, where traction is an essential factor. Besides, it is a sturdy, cut-and-chip resistant and highly performing tyre.
Developed for this kind of surface also is the Earthmax SR50 with its aggressive L-5 class tread. The result is a longer tyre life-cycle and steady resistance to numerous obstacles one can find on sites with muddy terrains and earthy surfaces. Thanks to its particular robustness and the extraordinary lateral stability, this tyre is ideal for loading and levelling operations.

For recycling operations putting to the test the tyres fitted on earthmoving equipment, BKT suggests Earthmax SR43 and Earthmax SR53. The latter is also suitable for rocky and underground mining applications, particularly harsh environments, where debris, stones or foreign matters can be found. The special compound along with an L-5-class tread and excellent self-cleaning properties ensure a long and profitable operating life.

 Research in always more advanced solutions and results is BKT’s main goal. The company studies in detail every single application, usage condition as well as the diversity of the terrain, in order to provide precise and cutting-edge technological products that are able to satisfy all user needs.
