BKT's EARTHMAX SR 23 tyre
Designed for tipper trucks and mining dumpers, particularly in the Middle East, the new 12.00 R 24 size of BKT
’s EARTHMAX 423 tyre was launched recently at the Automechanika Dubai exhibition.
The new tyre size showcased at the BKT platinum-sponsored showpiece event staged at the Dubai International Convention & Exhibition Centre (10-12 June 2019) is the third size in the EARTHMAX 423 tyre range, following on from the launch of sizes 10.00 R 20 and 11.00 R 20, also specifically developed for tipper trucks and dumpers used in mining and transport operations in the most demanding conditions. The EARTHMAX 423 tyre’s robust tread pattern with non-directional lugs provides excellent traction on any terrain.
The tyre’s large shoulder minimises the risk of cuts and chips even under toughest operating conditions, and on adverse and inaccessible paths. The all-steel casing structure provides great resistance and durability leading to a longer product life cycle.
EARTHMAX SR 423 has also been designed for increased load capacity, and the reinforced bead makes it the ideal tyre for heavy-duty service applications.
As a global company present in over 160 countries worldwide, Bhuj, western India-headquartered BKT says it pays a great deal of attention to developing products as a response to each territory’s most specific needs.
At Automechanika Dubai, BKT also exhibited the EARTHMAX SR 23 tyre, in size 20.5 R 25, which is specifically designed for motor graders and wheeled loaders. It is said to distinguish itself for its outstanding self-cleaning properties as well as excellent front and lateral traction, and an extended operating life-cycle.
Meanwhile, the also showcased EARTHMAX SR 33 is a radial tyre for multi-purpose trucks, said to ensure extraordinary grip on soft and sandy grounds. The tyre is also said to be extremely resistant to snags and punctures, while offering maximum stability. It was on display in size 365/80 R 20.
Another highlighted tyre from the EARTHMAX family was the EARTHMAX SR 48 for rigid dumpers operating in stone quarries, cement and mining industries. This tyre is said by BKT to have extraordinary traction and wear resistance, even under the toughest conditions in rocky environments. It is said to be ideal for transporting heavy loads.
