Product Launches at Excon: BKT

BKT, the multinational Off-Highway tire manufacturer headquartered in India, made the most out of the 9th edition of Excon. It displayed a tire line, which has been specifically developed to favor the best weight distribution on the ground for dumpers, loaders, dozers, graders and some multi-purpose vehicles. Right at the forefront, there is Earthmax SR 45 in size 18.00 R 33, an ideal tire for rigid dumpersoperating even on the harshest grounds. An essential feature is the extraordinary tread depth increasing tire durability and ensuring productive efficiency on the long run. The next exhibit in size 24.00 R 35 is Earthmax SR 47, specifically designed for rigid dumpers as well. This tire stands out for an extra-long product life-cycle thanks to its E4-class tread that reduces wear and provides extreme resistance against cuts and abrasion. Earthmax SR 46 is BKT’s response to adverse and rocky environments. Displayed at Excon in size 27.00 R 35, this tire features an All Steel casing reinforced with steel-belts to provide excellent protection against impacts, mechanical stress, and punctures. Strength and resistance are the characteristic traits of Earthmax SR 55, an extraordinary ally whenever you need to face high production peaks with very little standstill times – thanks to the extra-deep L-5-class-marked and smooth-surfaced tread. The tire showcased at the trade fair was in size 18.00 R 25. Specifically developed for rigid dumpers and loaders is Earthmax SR 31 – on display at Excon in size 23.5 R 25. This tire provides best traction and pleasing riding comfort. Made of a special compound, not only is it extremely resistant against cuts and abrasion, it also dissipates the heat developed during equipment operation. In addition to the Earthmax products, XL Grip (L3) was also viewed at the trade show in size 17.5-25. It is a cross-ply tire that provides best stability and durability. It has been particularly engineered for loaders for the purpose of reducing the risk of perforation during heavy-load operations to a minimum level. A non-directional tread design, traction, and stability, instead, are the distinguishing marks of XL Grip (BHL), designed for backhoe loaders employed in excavation, leveling and loading operations. It can be viewed in size 12.00 – 24. Another pattern for tough service is SUPER GRADER, a bias tire for graders excelling in traction and self-cleaning properties. On display at the event in size 14.00–24. Last but not least, EM 936 offers riding comfort as a plus. This tire has been specifically developed for excavators and telehandlers employed in industrial applications. Its particular features are easy handling, improved self-cleaning properties, and excellent traction. Showcased in size 16.0/70–20.
