Trelleborg’s New XP800 Tyre Offers Reliability in Material Handling Operations


Trelleborg Wheel Systems has launched the next Generation Forklift Tyre in the XP800 range. The new tyre is designed to handle medium intensity material handling applications.

Trelleborg Maximises Efficiency with Tyre Rating System for Customers to Choose the Matching Tyre for Their Needs

With its advanced tread design, the new XP800 ensures maximum productivity in indoor and outdoor performance. The innovative design features an extra wide tread and unique profile for minimised vibrations, as well as enhanced handling and excellent stability in indoor applications, while the lateral block design with deep lugs optimises traction in outdoor areas. The extra deep tread also increases tyre longevity.

Luca Sabelli, Product Manager Material Handling at Trelleborg Wheel Systems, explains: “In today’s multitude of material handling operations, having the right solution is key to maximising efficiency. At Trelleborg, we have developed a unique rating system with easy to recognise labels to help customers effortlessly identify which tyre suits their needs according to the application’s intensity. The XP800 is specifically designed to be the perfect choice for medium intensity applications, delivering a solid performance and minimising downtime to keep costs under control.”

The XP800 is available in two different compounds. The multipurpose compound is a standard black compound to ensure very good wear, rolling resistance and overall performance. The non-marking compound is a specialised white compound to optimise heat dissipation and keep floors clean and mark-free.

Trelleborg’s XP800 range will include multiple sizes covering low aspect ratio and 20-inch tyres for more severe applications, to help meet the complex challenges of material handling operations.
