The new Magna M-RIGID OTR tyre

Magna Tyres Group is launching a new tyre designed for rigid dump trucks operating in demanding off-the-road (OTR) conditions.

The company says the M-RIGID is suitable for modern rigid dump trucks (RDTs) such as Caterpillar, Komatsu, Terex and Hitachi. It will be available from May 2019.

The product is a radial constructed 27.00R49 / 33.00R51 / 40.00R57 earthmover, with an E4 tread pattern. It is designed to offer optimal tyre performance/purchase price, resulting in a low cost price per hour.

The M-RIGID has massive rigid lug blocks, designed to offer the traction and durability required in the most severe surface mines.

Magna says the tread pattern design has a number of innovations. Firstly, weight reducing cut outs on the tread blocks and lugs, to reduce heat build-up and improve tyre life.

There is also circumferential groove in the tread pattern which is intended to improve steering control for enhanced heavy-load cornering performance and improved heat dissipation.

The tyre features interlocking shoulder blocks to reduce excessive movement during cornering, to reduce heat build-up, and to enhance operator comfort and tyre life.

In addition, the optimised contact patch is designed to ensure even wear and improve tread life.
