Danvers, Mass. – Maxam added its new MS453 53/80R63 open pit mining tire to their range of large mining tires. Maxam engineered the tire to provide the industry with a rugged and long-lasting solution for mining haul trucks.
Featuring a rugged and aggressive tread design that allows maximum tire life for the most demanding mining applications, the MS453 is built to withstand even most severe challenges on haul roads, according to Maxam. Taking feedback from customers and mine sites globally, Maxam said in a press release it has reinforced the sidewall of the MS453 by enhancing the tread belts and bead construction to provide maximum protection and performance. Similar to the products within the large mining series, the MS453 features a deep tread depth to deliver longer tire life. It also contains a heat resistant undertread for reduced heat built up, increasing the tire’s TKPH/TMPH.
Maxam has implemented a new naming structure on some products within the Large Mining Series to help broaden their future range of specialty tire programs. To assist customers and mine sites globally, the realignment of the model numbers will allow for easy ordering and program development as Maxam continues to expand the haulage program.
The new product model names correlate to specific haulage tire sizes to differentiate tread design patterns within the series. The previous MS403 in size 37.00R57 and 46/90R57 have been realigned as the MS440. All other sizes within the MS403 pattern remains the same. MAXAM believes that this realignment will improve customer communication, allowing for direct access to tread design expectations.
