The LDSR 300 E3/ L3 is designed for wheel loaders operating in tough environments.
group’s tyre company Galaxy has launched its first range of radial off-road tyres at Intermat Paris 2018, which it says are for high-pressure job sites.
Simone Hainz, marketing investigation and intelligence manager, said: “90% of the market is radial and that was a huge gap for us up until now. The demand is there and we are now able to offer the customer a complete solution.”
The LDSR 300 E3/ L3 is designed for wheel loaders operating in tough environments. A sidewall protector helps it withstand challenging terrains while the tread compounds offers resistance against lug-tearing and chunking. Traction and self-cleaning is reinforced by a S-shaped tread pattern.
Meanwhile, HTSR 400 E4 / L4 has been launched to help dump trucks in operations that involve hauling heavy loads. The high tread depth is said to deliver consistent traction and cut resistance while a special compound helps reduce heat build-up during longer runs.
For graders, the MGSR 200 G-2 aims to provide high traction and stability. The Yardmaster Radial IND-3, according to Galaxy, is suited for heavy tonnage forklifts that perform a longer cycle of operations on demanding surfaces at higher speeds. In addition, the HTSR-400 intends to equip dump trucks with high traction and minimum heat build.
“We have been working with the Yokohoma rubber company since 2016. The tyres have been designed and tested under their supervision,” Hainz added.
