Yokohama OHT Product Range Brimming with Developments and Innovation
Considering the increased demand in the construction and port segments and specific demand rushes for the reach stacker, Job went on to explain the multitude of products available for these sectors, mainly focusing on the Galaxy range of products.
Job explained, “Our traditional Galaxy range covers tyres for skid steer, excavators, telehandlers, compact wheel loaders, reach stackers, container handlers and fork-lift machines.
“Additionally, we have focused on heavy construction machines and developed a comprehensive range of radial OTR tyres for heavy wheel loaders (LDSR300) and articulated dump trucks (HTSR400).”
As for recent developments, Yokohama OHT have recently released heat resistant and cut-resistant compound tyres in the Galaxy HTSR400 pattern for the heavy construction industry for articulated dump trucks. This is in addition to introducing the LDSR310, which is a block pattern for heavy earthmoving machines.
On these further advances Job said, “with these recent developments our radial OTR range has now increased to 19 SKUs covering graders, loaders and dump trucks segments.”
And if that wasn’t enough news on product developments, the Business Development Manager for Western Europe for Yokohama Off-Highway Tires had some words on solid tyres as well. “As for solids, we recently introduced new innovative hybrid solid tyre pattern LHD510 SDS for heavy wheel loaders for scrap handling,” he added.
The LHD510 SDS is available in 20.5-25, 23.5-25, 26.5-25 and 29.5-25 sizes.
