Mitas and TWS at Conexpo 23 in Las Vegas
From March 14 to 18, 2023, Las Vegas, Nevada, will host North America’s largest construction industry trade event - CONEXPO-CON/AGG.
Mitas and TWS to Display Tyres at CONEXPO 2023
Mitas will showcase tyres for construction equipment. Highlighted products on display will include the CR-01 crane tyre and the BIG BOY skid steer tyre.
The all-steel radial construction of the Mitas CR-01 guarantees a higher puncture resistance, as well as improved operator comfort. Designed for mobile cranes, the CR-01’s deep tread pattern delivers great traction and easy self-cleaning in off-road applications.
The BIG BOY tyre for skid steer loaders is specially designed for demanding conditions. The bias-ply construction of the BIG BOY, coupled with its robust industrial tread pattern provides stability and enhanced traction on sand, mud and gravel. The deep tread pattern also offers higher resistance to puncture and tread wear, prolonging the BIG BOY’s service life.
Jeff Cole, North and Central America Sales Director at Trelleborg Wheel Systems, remarked: “Participating in the CONEXPO trade show presents an excellent opportunity for us to demonstrate two of our reliable Mitas construction tyres and engage with professionals and operators from the construction industry. We can discuss in person how Mitas tyres can assist them in achieving their daily goals.”
Trelleborg will also be exhibiting alongside Mitas where visitors can view its Brawler HPS Soft Ride tyre and its EMR1042 tyre, which offer better productivity, increased rider comfort and extended tyre life even in the most demanding environments.
Both the Trelleborg Brawler HPS Soft Ride and EMR1042 tyres meet specific needs providing enhanced damage protection and the highest level of comfort for the rider.
Dave Barraco, North and Central America Regional Marketing Director at Trelleborg Wheel Systems, stated: “Trelleborg’s participation at CONEXPO is paramount as it provides access to a diverse customer and user audience, allowing us to guide them towards the most suitable engineered tyre solutions for their specific needs. CONEXPO enables us to stay in touch with our audience to continually address their needs. Our tyres are equipped with long-lasting, cut-resistant compounds that provide premium performance for all types of applications. Our Brawler and EMR product lines bring unmatched value.”
The Brawler HPS Soft Ride tyre is designed for wheel loaders in environments where punctures and cuts are a concern. Its solid construction makes it maintenance-free, which contributes to keeping equipment up and running in the field. Additionally, its unique tyre design delivers higher shock absorption and reduced vibration, ensuring the best possible protection for operators and machines.
Designed for articulated dump trucks and wheel loaders, the EMR 1042 range maximises the efficiency of hauling operations in open pits and quarries, construction work and site preparation. Made to last, the tyre has a reinforced sidewall rubber ring guard protection and a robust casing. The multi-surface tread design delivers control and perfect grip when it is needed the most, whether on sand, rock, gravel or soil.
