Yokohama introduces a Severe Duty Solid (SDS) forklift tyre designed for industries with the highest cleanliness requirements; it offers outstanding results in tyre comparison in Italy due to its three-stage construction and long working shifts, providing high ride comfort and ideal suitability for indoor electric forklifts, with three sizes available and further SKUs under development for rim sizes 8, 9, 10, 12, 13, and 15.

Yokohama-ATG Launches Galaxy MFS 101 SDS Non-Marking Tyres for Forklifts

Yokohama-ATG (Y-ATG) is expanding the range of the Galaxy MFS 101 SDS premium forklift tyre with three new non-marking (NM) tyres specifically developed for pristine and highly presentable areas. Designed to provide protection for sensitive working environments like epoxy-coated or polished floors, these tyres leave no visible marks. Recent results from Italy further demonstrate the durability of the Galaxy MFS 101 SDS. In a tyre experiment, it outlasted a top-tier European manufacturer’s tyre by almost double the working hours under similar conditions. The initial offering of the new Galaxy MFS 101 SDS NM includes sizes 18X7-8, 6.00-9, and 23X10-12, catering particularly to operators of indoor electric forklifts in industries that demand maximum cleanliness. Additionally, the tyre comes with a 5-year warranty.

Thanks to the tyre’s higher 60J and extended wear limits; the Galaxy MFS 101 SDS NM offers a long tyre life. The 3-stage construction allows for high-intensity operations while reducing heat build-up and ensuring comfort by effective shock absorption. At the same time, vibrations are minimised to ensure operator comfort. The pattern design, with its continuous centre lug and circumferential grooves, ensures a smooth ride and good steerability. In addition, the comprehensive, flat profile and the flat sidewall provide high stability during all forklift operations.

  • Premium tyre designed for high-intensity work shifts and extended durability
  • Leaves no marks on sensitive floors, ideal for environments requiring maximum cleanliness
