The company are planning to make their impact known with three BKT Giant tyres on display.

The first is EARTHMAX SR 468, the largest tyre ever made by BKT, launched on the market in 2021. It is designed for rigid dump trucks and exhibited in size 40.00 R 57 corresponding to a height of 3.5 meters, a width of 1.13 meters and a weight of 3,800 kg.

The second Giant tyre is EARTHMAX SR 46, displayed in the sizes 27.00 R 49 and 33.00 R 51, it is designed for rigid dump trucks. The 33.00 R 51 size is equivalent to a diametre of over three meters or precisely 3,061 mm, a width of 905 and a weight of 2,400 kg, while the 27.00 R 49 has a diametre of exactly 2,688 mm and a width of 746.

Suitable for operations on rocky and harsh terrains, this type of tyre is particularly resistant to impacts and punctures thanks to the all steel structure that provides resistance to the casing. In addition, the E-4 tread depth offers extreme resistance in severe conditions. Finally, its specially designed tread pattern and the tread compound have been specifically developed to reduce the heat generation during this type of extreme applications.

These two tyres are part of EARTHMAX, the BKT range designed for a better weight distribution on the ground for dumpers, wheel loaders, dozers, graders and some multipurpose vehicles. Today the EARTHMAX range includes 40 different tyres for the earthmoving, construction, mining and quarry sectors and are available in many sizes and different compounds.
