Maxam Tire North America has secured an original equipment deal with Caterpillar for the Cat Medium Wheel Loaders, which will be shod with Maxam MS302 L3 tires in size 23.5 R25 MS302.
The tire is available optionally on the Cat 950GC, 950L, 950M, 962L and 962M in certain regions. The Maxam MS302 tire has also been approved for fitment on additional Cat Medium Wheel Loaders in futher sizes.
“Expertly engineered to thrive under extreme conditions, the Maxam MS302 is built tough to exceed expectations, delivering excellent traction and customer value. In addition to the outstanding performance of the tires, Maxam also has the support of the Maxam Tire global dealer servicing network with over 1,300 strong and growing,” commented Matthew Fagan, director of R&D at Maxam Tire North America.
Maxam’s MS302 features a rugged E3/L3+ heavy duty design for maximum traction and high heat resistance on loaders, graders and earthmovers.
It is said to minimize vibration at haul speeds and provides the lowest cost per hour. The durable cut and tear resistant rubber compound, meanwhile, prevents downtime due to damage.
