BKT unveils EARTHMAX tire range for tough operations
August 30, 2021 By Rock to Road Staff
BKT has developed a new tire range that the company says can handle the stress of the rough terrain found in quarries and mines.
The EARTHMAX range is designed to provide optimal ground load distribution for dump trucks, wheel loaders, dozers and graders.
All tires in the range feature an all-steel structure that provides resistance to the casing and protects against impacts.
There are three EARTHMAX models:
- EARTHMAX SR 46: Fitted to rigid dump trucks that operate in rocky environments such as mines. Specifically designed to transport heavy loads, this tire ensures a high level of resistance to cuts thanks to its casing with a steel belt. The design of the tread with blocks and grooving on the circumference minimize damage to the surface of the product and improve performance on bends.
- EARTHMAX SR 45: Also designed for rigid dump trucks and has a specific design of blocks and a deeper tread, which ensures longevity of the tire.
EARTHMAX SR 53, classified L-5: Designed for loaders operating in difficult conditions. The tread consists of a compound that is particularly resistant to cuts. In addition, it is designed to offer self-cleaning properties, which facilitate the expulsion of stones and other foreign bodies.
BKT has also launched a Giant version of EARTHMAX SR 46 for rigid dump trucks operating at mines, dams and large worksites. This solution is available in the largest size BKT has ever manufactured: 33.00 R 51.
With a diameter of over three metres, the Giant EARTHMAX SR 46 tire weighs 2,400 kilograms.
