Magna Tyres Group has announced the launch of its latest addition to the material handling tyre line-up: the 18.00-25 Magna M-Stacker (IND-4). A more advanced tyre for use on reach stackers, empty container handlers and heavy-duty forklifts designed with a key focus on improving the efficiency and productivity of cargo operations.
M-Stacker Tyre is Magna Tyres’ Newest Launch
The Magna M-Stacker has been developed starting from the already proven MB01 tread design, with the specific operational requirements of our customers. Through years of experience, comprehensive technical analysis by the R&D department and cooperation with leading ports and terminals worldwide, Magna Tyres has managed to design a tyre that meets the ever-increasing demands of pick and stack equipment.
The M-Stacker tyre has been constructed according to key areas related to design, performance and usability. The enhanced tread and groove design feature an additional 3 extra lugs and optimised rubber compound, which allow for a reduction in heat build-up. This favours tyre performance, allowing for it to run cooler and resist heat-induced and abrasive tread wear. The deep wide lugs also support easier turning on the spot, by reducing stress in tread blocks.
Moreover, this innovative design features noticeably wider tread design in combination with an effective adjustment in the shoulder height of the tyre. The optimal carcass design grants the M-Stacker tyre ideal distribution of contact pressure resulting in a more even tread wear, increasing the tyre lifetime.
The optimised design of the tread and improved rubber compound provides longer tread life by preventing irregular wear caused by excessive lug movement and heat build-up. This new tyre meets the needs of port operators with an impressive improvement up to 32% in operating hours. Translated to the total number of cycles; this is a drastic increase in lifetime.
The M-Stacker's robust sidewalls mean a reduction of deflection, improved protection against damage, and a longer service life. In addition, the large-sized tread blocks provide the highest level of stability when loading and unloading heavy containers.
This optimal design has been added to the Magna Port Handling range. The new Magna port tyre is available in 2 versions: M-Stacker & M-Stacker+, the difference being tread depth: 55 vs. 70mm. They are both now in production and with immediate effect, being offered to the market.
