BKT Launch new tyre design for Telehandlers

15 January, 2015

The new CONSTAR tyre from Balkrishna Industries (BKT) has been specifically designed for handling equipment in the agro-industrial sector, such as telescopic handlers and wheel loaders.

BKT have focused on providing high vertical and horizontal stability when developing the CONSTAR – an essential requirement for lifting operations. With its strong construction and thick sidewall, the CONSTAR tyre offers great stability in lift mode.

“Tyres play a vital part in the stability of telehandlers so it is of extreme importance that the correct tyres are used and the BKT CONSTAR has been specifically designed for this application”, says Andrew Gillam, Sales & Marketing Manager for TRS Tyre & Wheel.

Heavy loads can be confidently carried due to the wider lugs which provide an increased contact area on the ground. Currently the CONSTAR is available in 400/70-20, 400/80-24 and 440/80-24 which has a load/speed of 168A8, meaning it can carry a maximum load of 5600kg while travelling at a speed of 40km/h. In addition, the tough tread compound of the CONSTAR tyre has been formulated for better cut and chip resistance which in turn promote longer life.

With its industrial lug design, the CONSTAR offers excellent levels of traction while retaining the ability to also operate on hard surfaces. It is an excellent choice for mixed operations such as dairy farms.  In addition to the CONSTAR, TRS also carry a wide range of Telehandler tyres in tread designs to suit all applications from high traction to smooth surface.
