BKT Launches the New SKID MAX SR-SKIDDER Tyre

BKT's SKID MAX SR-SKIDDER tyre

The new BKT-branded product has been created to equip loaders and telehandlers used for heavy-duty operations. Some of the distinguishing features include extreme resistance, high load capacity, stability and comfort. 

BKT’s Latest Launch for Loaders and Telehandlers 

The development of new BKT products does not stop. The Group is ready to launch its new All Steel radial tyre, the SKID MAX SR-SKIDDER, specifically designed for use in extremely heavy work environments and on hard surfaces. This product is therefore ideal to equip loaders and telehandlers used in road maintenance work or in waste material deposits. 

In such heavy-duty applications, the tyre requires characteristics that can meet the daily challenges linked to the risk of puncture and abrasion and to the ability to transport heavy loads while maintaining perfect stability. 

SKID MAX SR-SKIDDER is a perfect mix of all these requirements and offers longer product life and high load capacity. The robust casing is equipped with an All Steel structure with steel belts which confer greater resistance on the casing and therefore against aggression, such as for example punctures and the penetration by foreign bodies. Also, the thickness of the side helps minimise the risk of punctures and accidental damage and so consequent vehicle downtime. 

In addition, SKID MAX SR-SKIDDER is equipped with a guard which protects against any punctures and impacts which could damage the area around the rim. 

The robust and wide tread has been designed with a continuous central block which, in combination with the tread's mix which is anti-static and extremely resistant to abrasion, guarantees excellent traction and long product life. 

Finally, BKT has not forgotten how important it is that this tyre guarantees optimal comfort for the operators who drive these vehicles for long periods of time. That is why SKID MAX SR-SKIDDER can also guarantee excellent comfort and stability in everyday work. 

SKID MAX SR-SKIDDER is currently available in the 260/70 R 12.5 (10 R 16.5) size.
