BKT Launches the New EARTHMAX SR 412

BKT's EARTHMAX SR 412

BKT's range of over 2,700 tyres is expanding again. The latest is EARTHMAX SR 412, designed to equip articulated dump trucks, loaders and dozers. 

EARTHMAX SR 412 Added to BKT Range 

Excellent stability and resistance to damaging attacks are the main qualities which distinguish this new tyre. The robust casing and the All Steel belts let EARTHMAX SR 412 transport heavy loads while avoiding tears and punctures. The tread has a unique design with an E-4 depth, guaranteeing strong traction and high heat resistance, while the square shoulder ensures EARTHMAX SR 412 has a solid grip on the ground, which gives the vehicle greater control and maneuverability. EARTHMAX SR 412 is available in the 29.5 R 25 and 750/65 R 25 sizes. 

The new product thus joins the EARTHMAX family, the range of OTR radial tyres designed to operate in the most extreme and adverse situations. 

Specifically designed for dump trucks, wheel loaders, dozers and graders, the tyres in this range are true partners in the toughest operations, guaranteeing these vehicles better load distribution on the ground and ensuring comfort, safety and stability for end users. 

Originally launched in 2008, EARTHMAX now numbers over twenty different product lines with numerous models and sizes, to which can now be added the new EARTHMAX SR 412 tyre: further confirmation of BKT's commitment to continuously finding solutions which can meet the widest-ranging needs of its end users. 

The All Steel structure which characterises all the tyres in this range makes the different EARTHMAX models especially suitable for operations on large worksites, in quarries and in mines, resisting puncture, penetration by foreign bodies and other damage to the casing. 

The launch of this new product, which follows on just a few months after the announcement of the prototype of the gigantic EARTHMAX SR 468, the biggest tyre ever made by BKT, bears witness to the work of the Group's Research and Development team in always finding new solutions to help end users in their operations in the field.
