New high speed crane tyre

17. June 2014 | Comments (0)

BKT has launched a new All Terrain crane tyre, the Airomax AM 27 is currently available as a 445/95 R 25 and is designed for good performance on road and over unfinished ground.

The new tyre is approved for speeds up to 80 kph and is said to be particularly good for longer distances. Maximum payload at full speed is 6.7 tonnes per tyre – so 13.4 tonne axle loads. This rating is likely to be higher at lower speeds and on smaller sizes.

The company says that its extremely strong carcass, in conjunction with its broad shoulders and open tread guarantees excellent traction and good self-cleaning properties for off road use. At the same time, it benefits from a solid rubber compound, which protects against cuts and punctures.

The company adds that, all tyres are subjected to a final x-ray inspection, a Shearography (control of air pockets in the carcass) and a runout test. The result is high quality tyre that can achieve life/mileages, close to those to that of the premium manufacturers at an attractive price. The tyres can also be re-treaded.
