TRS acquires new generation of crane tyre

30 September, 2015

The latest addition to the TRS product range will be the new Mitas CR-01 which is a new generation all-steel radial tyre designed for mobile cranes

The Mitas CR-01 provides a wide range of benefits including:

·        A high maximum speed up to 85 km/h

·        Mitas-Link, unique connection between tread blocks ensuring extended tyre life

·        Deepest tread pattern in category

·        Reduced fuel consumption thanks to all-steel construction improving rolling resistance

·        Improved operator comfort and low noise emissions in road high speed service

·        Open tread block design for excellent traction and easy self-cleaning in off-road application

·        Regroovable and suitable for retreading thanks to high durability of carcass


With a static load capacity of 17,750kg and 7,100 kg at 80 km/h, the Mitas CR01 offers excellent load capacity. Mitas claim the 28mm deep tread pattern is the deepest in its category and can operate in winter conditions & mud. Mitas says the tyre offers six per cent lower rolling resistance than a standard mobile crane tyre, resulting in reduced fuel consumption.

All CR-01 sizes feature ‘Mitas-Link’, a connection between tread blocks said to increase tyre life while limiting tread movement, even at speeds of up to 90km/h. Mobile cranes move fast on roads, and Mitas-Link keeps tyre thread lugs in a fixed position, which allows for better control of the vehicle and preserving off-road traction. These links also reduce noise levels by blocking the noise generated within the tyre tread from spreading.

With a well established position as a specialist manufacturer of wheels for mobile Cranes, TRS see entry to supplying tyres as a natural evolution.  We have carefully selected the Mitas brand as our entry point as it is a quality brand manufactured in Europe with a history dating back to the 1930s.  “This is a brand we can place in the market at competitive pricing but with the assurance of European Quality” said Andy Macdonald, Industrial Business Manager for TRS.

Mitas tyres are distributed in NZ by TRS Tyre and Wheel Ltd, NZ’s largest importer & distributor of agricultural & industrial tyre and wheel systems. TRS offer an onsite technical advisory service coupled with regular performance monitoring of specialist tyres in service.
