BKT Launches New Forklift Products: MAGLIFT ECO & MAGLIFT PREMIUM

BKT-Tyres

BKT has launched two new models for its MAGLIFT, the tyre specifically designed for forklifts in the form of the MAGLIFT ECO and the MAGLIFT PREMIUM.

MAGLIFT ECO & MAGLIFT PREMIUM Rolled Out by BKT

MAGLIFT ECO is made with two layers of rubber compound and has a special shape and very wide lugs to guarantee stability and load distribution. Among its distinctive features there is also the particular rim guard designed to protect it against damage and denting. Low rolling resistance and high resistance to overheating guarantee maximum efficiency.

Completing the picture are the steel wires incorporated into the hitch which offer secure grip and prevent any risk of slippage. There are two versions available, standard and “LIP” i.e. with an asymmetric hitch to avoid having to add flanges.

MAGLIFT PREMIUM has instead been designed for forklifts used for the tough operations and comes with a deep tread to guarantee a long life cycle. The design of the tread is both robust and aggressive, enabling operators to count on good steering control and forward and lateral traction. The central grooving of the tread ensures low rolling resistance. Available in both standard and “LIP” versions.

All the MAGLIFT models have in common good load distribution, stability, safety and high load capacity, essential characteristics for a tyre for forklifts, vehicles which carry out very delicate operations to move heavy goods.

Also of importance is the compound used in these products which BKT has made resistant in particular to wear and tear and to cuts and, in addition, in order to guarantee operators' comfort, a softer compound, offering a comfortable drive, has been included in the central part of the tyre section.

Again as regards the compound, there is also the non-marking version of MAGLIFT which does not leave any traces, thus ensuring flooring is left perfectly clean. It is specifically for logistical and production facilities in the food and pharmaceutical sectors where maximum hygiene is necessary, but where all the other key characteristics of MAGLIFT are also needed. Thanks to the latest additions, the MAGLIFT range is now available in 23 different sizes.
