EMR 1051 Tyre Nabs First Prize in Final Vote

Designed specifically for wheel loaders, the EMR 1051 tyre received almost 30% of the votes from the public and judges, confirming Trelleborg's second win in these prestigious awards, following the win in the Best Agricultural Tyre Category with the TM1000 ProgressiveTraction in 2019.

Ramón Martínez, Country Manager Spain and Portugal at Trelleborg Wheel Systems, says: “We are proud to once again receive an Hevea award, this time in the OTR category. We really feel this award recognises the excellence of our products and the continuous effort we invest in the research and innovation for all our products. This recognition of our EMR range underlines Trelleborg’s commitment to the construction sector, which requires high-quality solutions and high expertise, both of which our customers have come to expect.”

Engineered using a specialised compound and boasting a strong radial carcass and extra-deep tread, the earth-moving radial tire EMR 1051 optimises load distribution and tyre life while boosting ride comfort and fuel efficiency. Designed for heavy loads, it is a solution for working on intensive construction jobs, including in open pits and quarries. The EMR 1051 range consists of four sizes: 20.5R25; 23.5R25; 26.5R25 and 29.5R25.
