CR-02 has lighter construction
Mitas has launched the CR-02, a 445/95R25 tyre with a lighter construction to suit mobile crane OEMs. The new tread design plus the ability for the tyre to be mounted on a one-piece rim reduces the weight of the tyre by around 25 kg compared with the company's successful CR-01 range.
Mitas developed the CR-02 in response to the requirements of OEMs such as Liebherr and Manitowoc who are looking to reduce the weight and thereby improve the fuel consumption of their mobile cranes. The 445/95R25 CR-02 is designed for speeds of up to 85 km/h, with a maximum operational load capacity at 80 km/h of 6,700 kg under 9 bar. The tyre has a symmetrical tread pattern and can be retreaded. The tyres can operate in winter conditions and mud.
