Maxam develops new bead wrapping process for forestry tires

LinkedIn +

Maxam has expanded its LogXtra forestry line with the MS931 LogXtra for abusive forestry applications. Throughout the development, the design components and construction are said to have displayed high efficiency, durability and traction compared with industry benchmarks.

The steel belt stabilized construction along with heavy-duty shoulder and sidewall thrives in harsh environments, while also resisting cuts, cracks, impacts and punctures.

A high-performance rubber compound has also been developed by the Maxam engineering group specifically for the LogXtra tread to maximize tire resilience in a working environment. To prevent bead winding defects and protect against mounting damage, a special bead wrapping process has been implemented in the manufacturing process.

The LogXtra is said to offer excellent traction and flotation thanks to its aggressive self-cleaning tread pattern, which is deeper and wider than the industry standard.

The MS931 LogXtra will be offered in five LS2 sizes and optional ply ratings.
