The Earthmax range covers a range of sizes and patterns suited to dumpers and wheeled loaders.

TRS have recently landed 24.00R35 in the SR45 (E4) which are running in a quarry application in the Bay of Plenty area. The tyres are fitted to a CAT 775 Dump Truck and initial feedback after several weeks in operation shows the tyres are performing very well with minimal tread wear and no visible sidewall cutting or other damage. The 24.00R35 Earthmax is manufactured in both a standard and cut resistant compound.

In a trial conducted by BKT at the Point Wilson Aggregate Quarry in Australia, the 24.00R35 Earthmax SR45 tyres completed over 4400 running hours on a Komatsu 465-3 comparing very favourably to other brands.  Also as a first, BKT have supplied 24 units of 18.00R33 Earthmax SR45 tyres as an OE fitment to BEML – India’s biggest Dump Truck manufacturer. Currently the dumpers are being utilised for stone quarry operations in United Arab Emirates.

TRS also have a shipment of 26.5R25 Earthmax tyres in the SR50 L5 pattern and once these arrive they will be placed on loaders operating in a harsh quarry environment. While similar to the SR45 in design, the SR50 features a directional lug, an extra deep tread pattern and a heavy duty shoulder buttress to reduce sidewall damage in severe operating conditions.

Manufactured in India, BKT has been growing rapidly internationally as one of the world leaders of off-highway tyres. BKT has the widest product range with more than 2000 SKU's (Stock Keeping Units) and is "One Stop Shop" for all off-highway tyre solutions. BKT release around 150 new sizes annually with many of these being incorporated into the New Zealand market and BKT has grown to become the largest selling agricultural tyre brand in NZ.

TRS, NZ's largest importer & distributor of agricultural & industrial tyre and wheel systems, are the authorised distributor of BKT tyres. TRS now offer more than 400 individual product lines covering industrial and agricultural applications and the range continues to grow rapidly.
