Galaxy Adds to Portfolio

This range of pneumatic bias tyres is characterised by a strong casing and stiff sidewalls that provide both good stability and high ride comfort during lifting and shifting operations that are typical for medium size, medium duty forklifts. These machines are typically used for loading and unloading, shop-floor duties as well as outdoor operations on moderately uneven surfaces.

The Galaxy Yardmaster series is a value offering which features an optimal tyre profile with a smooth flat tread, strong casing, fortified sidewalls and tread block reinforcements. Galaxy has now extended its sizes with 21X8-9 (16 PR), 7.00-12, 7.00-15 and 7.50-15 (all 14 PR) and 250-15 (20 PR).

The profile of the Galaxy Yardmaster was specifically developed for lateral load carrying capacity, stability and traction. The strong casing is strengthened by stiff sidewalls, further adds to the tyre’s stability and ensures smooth pneumatic ride comfort. Fortified sidewalls protect the Yardmaster against cuts during operation whilst reinforced tread blocks and a strong central tie bar make sure that this tyre also withstands extreme strains that can be experienced in some loading and shifting operations.

Special compounds were chosen for the cut, chip and wear resistance that is needed for demanding one or two shift operations. In addition to the optimal tyre profile, also the flat tread ensures that, along decent stability, footprint and load distribution fully match all operational requirements.
