Westlake Tyre Exhibits at Hillhead Show 2022  

The Hillhead Show is the biggest show for the quarrying and construction industries in the world and the third largest in the UK. With more than 600 exhibitors, 18,500 visitors, Hillhead 2022 proved to be one of the busiest and best-attended shows in the event’s 40-year history. At this year’s show Doosan had a large selection of machinery displayed on their stand Z4, including their DX100W-7 wheeled excavator, which was fitted with Westlake 8.25-20 EL08 as its original equipment.

Westlake EL08 is an ideal selection by Doosan or any other Wheeled Excavator manufacturer, as it offers excellent protection against accidental damage to tread and sidewall, has a specially designed sidewall protection rib to increase the cut-resistance and vehicle stability, along with a deeper tread depth to guarantee a longer tyre life. With the most advanced excavators, loaders, machine tools, diesel engines, and armored vehicles in the world, Doosan is the top manufacturer of construction machinery and holds a significant position in the heavy industry. 

The DX100W-7 wheel excavator on display is a new product in Doosan's urban and road maintenance series. The Westlake 8.25-20-14 EL08 became itsoriginal equipment tyre with excellent design and superior performance. As a result of their exceptional performance in terms of product quality, market support, customer service, and brand reputation in recent years, Westlake OTR tyres have flourished in Asia, Europe and other regions. They also have gained the recognition of many OEMs and established their long-term partnerships with them.
