New Brawler rubber from Trelleborg for recycling industry

LinkedIn +

Trelleborg Wheel Systems has unveiled the Brawler HPS Soft Ride, a new solid tire designed for the waste management and recycling industries.

This re-engineered version of the Brawler is said to offer greatly improved operator comfort and equipment-life through reduced vibration, while maintaining durability in the harshest of applications.

The Soft Ride tire features a new cushion rubber compound that greatly increases deflection and shock absorption. Combined with the Brawler ultra-cut-resistant tread compound this makes for a solid tire that is very tough, yet much less stiff.

Ditri Zweistra, segment manager specialty mining, waste and recycling at Trelleborg, said, “We challenged ourselves to create a solid tire that matches the benchmark for comfort achieved by foam-filled pneumatic tires but which still performed against all other requirements for tires in this specialist segment. I am pleased to say that we met – and exceeded – our own expectations.”
