Magna Tyres Group has announced the introduction of the brand-new Magna M-RIGID.
New EM Tyre for Rigid Dump Trucks
This radial constructed 27.00R49 / 33.00R51 / 40.00R57 earthmover tyre with an E4 tread pattern is designed for Rigid Dump Trucks that operate in the most demanding off-road conditions. It is claimed to offer the optimal tyre performance / purchase price, resulting in a low cost price per hour. The Magna M-RIGID has been designed to achieve a highly efficient mining operation and to increase a site’s profitability.
The Magna M-RIGID has massive rigid lug blocks, that offer the traction and durability required in the most severe surface mines. The unique and revolutionary tread pattern design has four major innovations:
- Weight reducing cut outs on the tread blocks and lugs, to reduce heat build-up and improve tyre life.
- Circumferential groove in the tread pattern to improve steering control for enhanced heavy-load cornering performance and improved heat dissipation
- Interlocking shoulder blocks to reduce excessive movement during cornering, to reduce heat build-up, and to enhance operator comfort and tyre life.
- An optimised contact patch designed to ensure even wear and improve tread life.
The M-RIGID is claimed to be the ideal solution for modern RDT’s such as Caterpillar, Komatsu, Terex and Hitachi, and will be available from May 2019.
