BKT adds to Earthmax construction tire line-up

LinkedIn +

The SR 47, SR 51 and SR 53 are the latest products in Balkrishna Industries’ (BKT) Earthmax lineup.

The SR 47 is designed for rigid dumpers, which operate under harsh conditions often found at quarries. For that reason it is designed to be highly resistant, durable and stable. The increased tread depth ensures an extended life-cycle optimizing productivity and reducing machinery downtime.

The Earthmax SR 51 features a lug design that has been developed in order to ensure the best traction in excavating and loading operations. The tire’s extra tread depth and new compound greatly extend its lifetime and increase productivity. The SR 51 also features improved expelling capabilities, which significantly reduce punctures.

Meanwhile the SR 53, which is designed for loaders and dozers operating on rocky ground such as that found in underground mines or on quarries, features a cut-resistant compound that increases both durability and productivity. A unique tread design reduces the risk of stones or other foreign matter becoming trapped in the tire.
