BKT, the manufacturer of offroad tires will be using the CONEXPO-CON/AGG 2017 Show which is scheduled to be held in Las Vegas from March 7 to 11 this year to display its top-of-the-range tires of its Earthmax tire lineup for construction, mining and earthmoving vehicles.
Visitors to show will have a chance to get a close look at some of the outstanding tires belonging ot the Earthmax range of products. This range has been expanding at a rapid pace to meet the demands of even the most demanding users. The tires from the Earthmax range have been designed for optimal load distribution when they are used on dozers, graders, dumpers and wheeled loaders.
The common feature of all Earthmax patterns is that they have a structure that is made entirely of steel. This gives the casing extra resistance and protects the tire against punctures and penetration by debris. These features are particularly important in the kind of terrain that these tires are used as they face many obstacles on rough or rocky road and experience serious risks of puncture or casing deterioration. The Earthmax lineup is ideal for use on tough terrains like that found on large construction sites, quarries, pits and mines.
The most impressive tire in the Earthmax range, is the Earthmax SR 45 Plus. The size of the Earthmax SR 45 Plus, BKT’s new giant tire is truly amazing. Its diameter of 106.4 inches, or 2.70 meters (size 27.00 R 49) is stunning. It has been specifically engineered for rigid dumpers, and is a giant radial tire that is ideal for long-haul operations. The tire’s All Steel casing structure gives it excellent stability and makes it highly resistant to any kind of impacts such as cuts, tears and abrasions, irrespective of the operating conditions are.
