BKT expands tyre range for recycling machinery

BKT has expanded its range of tyres designed for the different types of machinery operating in material-recycling centres.

Firstly, the Skid Max SR-Skidder, which enables to carry heavy loads while maintaining perfect stability, is available now in two sizes, including the recently introduced novelty: 300/70 R 16.5.

Its all steel structure with steel belts provides greater resistance to the carcass and therefore to impacts. The thick sidewall contributes to minimise the risk of punctures and accidental damage. In addition, the rim guard prevents any punctures and shocks that might damage the area around the rim.

The strong and wide tread has been designed with a continuous central lug and is made of a special anti-static and extremely abrasion-resistant tread compound to ensure excellent traction and a long service life.

Another tyre used in recycling environments is the BK-Loader 53, now available in the novelty size 405/70 R 18 in addition to the existing size 405/70 R 20.

This aramid-belted tyre features a unique extra-deep tread design that ensures excellent lateral stability and extraordinary resistance to wear, cuts, and punctures.

BKT says it also offers outstanding self-cleaning properties that ensure the rapid expulsion of debris, not forgetting excellent grip and traction on both wet and dry surfaces.

Meanwhile, the Earthmax SR 53, with the new variants in size 29.5 R 29, is now available in both classes L-5 ** UMS (Underground Mining Service) and L-5 *** super resistant.

This tyre features an extra-deep, L5-S-class tread along with a smooth surface providing long durability, thus minimizing downtime. Likewise outstanding are its extraordinary stability and traction features.

Finally, the Giant Trax has been designed for skid steers operating on rough surfaces. The extra-deep tread with wider and sturdier blocks provides excellent traction, stability, and puncture resistance. The special tread compound provides top resistance to cuts, punctures, and wear.
