BKT launches Earthmax SR 47 OTR tyre in Middle East
The all-steel radial OTR tyre is specifically designed for rigid dump trucks operating in extreme environments
India-based tyre manufacturer Balkrishna Industries Ltd. (BKT) has launched the Earthmax SR 47 in the Middle East region. The Earthmax SR 47 made its regional debut at the Automechanika Dubai expo in May 2018.
The all-steel radial OTR tyre is specifically designed for rigid dump trucks operating in extreme environments including rock quarries, where tyres require the maximum resistance in order to tackle uneven, rough terrain conditions. The all steel casing along with extra strong steel belts provide stability and resistance to snags and punctures. The tread depth and tread design provide wear resistance on long hauls, thus reducing downtime.The Earthmax SR 47 tyre is available in standard and cut-resistant compounds for extended durability.
The Earthmax tyre range includes the Earthmax SR 33, a radial tyre for multipurpose trucks that provides grip on off road surfaces (mud + sand), and Earthmax SR 30, a dual-purposed radial tyre for wheel loaders, motor graders and telehandlers that provide traction, stability and durability in a variety of harsh operating conditions. Recently at the Intermat 2018 expo in April, BKT showcased the Earthmax SR 53, a special tyre for loaders and dozers operating on rocky terrain, Earthmax SR 31 for rigid dumpers and wheeled loaders, and Earthmax SR 50, a tyre specifically engineered for demanding loading or levelling operations.
