Firestone has launched the MULTI BLOCK T, designed for both wheel loaders and articulated dump trucks and covers a large area of the off-road market.
New OTR Radial Tyre for European Market
The multi-purpose tyre offers a wide range of possible uses with low vibration values, excellent cut resistance and good, even wear.
Developed to limit unexpected damage and downtime, the cost-oriented MULTI BLOCK T tyre has been carefully designed for construction site needs.
Firestone, which is known for its durable and reliable products, is bringing its first off-the-road (OTR) radial tyre line-up to the European market with the MULTI BLOCK T. The multi-purpose tyre with dual identification L3 / E3 (L for wheel loaders and E for articulated dump trucks) is ideal for dealers, rental machine companies or end users who are looking for a cost-conscious product that offers durable and reliable quality.
The Firestone MULTI BLOCK T stems from years of research as well as an understanding of customer needs and the necessary balance between wheel loaders and articulated dump trucks. The casings and the tread design of the MULTI BLOCK T reduce vibrations and offer a wide range of applications. The sidewall and the tread of the tyre are particularly cut-resistant in order to avoid unexpected damage and subsequent downtime. The tread bars prevent the lugs from flexing and moving, while the non-directional tread design ensures good, even wear. The tyre's open shoulder design contributes to its traction performance.
These developments in design and engineering have resulted in a cost-effective tyre that enables continuous operation with less downtime and long life with a trouble-free operating experience. It is the optimal storage tyre that is suitable for every spontaneous need.
The Firestone MULTI BLOCK T (L3 / E3 tyres) was developed for both wheel loaders and articulated dump trucks and will be successively available on the European market from April 2021 in the following five main sizes: 17.5R25, 20.5R25, 23.5R25, 26.5R25 and 29.5R25.
"The MULTI BLOCK T is a reliable tyre, the development of which was focused on versatility," says Christoph Frost, Director Commercial Products Bridgestone Central Europe. “It is the result of extensive research and development in order to find the optimal solution for both areas of application. The traditional brand Firestone stands for durable, reliable and cost-effective products and our latest OTR tyre embodies all of these characteristics."
