LinkedIn +

BKT has announced the release of its new Earthmax SR 412 OTR tire, set for use on construction vehicles such as articulated dumper trucks, loaders and bulldozers.

The tire features increased stability attributes and uprated damage resistance due to a robust all-steel casing belt, enabling the Earthmax SR 412 to transport heavier payloads and avoid punctures and tears. Changes have also been made to the tread pattern, which now features E4 depth alongside a square shoulder to increase traction, grip, high-heat resistance and vehicle maneuverability.

Joining BKT’s ever-growing portfolio of 2,700 tires, the newest variant will be available in 29.5 R 25 and 750/65 R 25 sizes to suit a range of vehicles found operating in extreme conditions such as in quarries, mines and building sites where resistance to foreign objects and damage is critical.
