Two new sizes for Yardmaster Radial and three for HTSR 400 E4/L4 improve hard service and extreme environment capabilities
Galaxy tyres, a brand of the Yokohama Tyres-owned Alliance Tire Group (ATG), has extended it’s off-the-road range with the introduction of new sizes for forklifts and haul and dump trucks.
A statement from ATG said the new addition to the forklift tyre range – the Galaxy Yardmaster Radial – is an all-steel radial tyre for forklift machines used for heavy-duty, long-cycle operations. This tyre is now available in two new sizes – 12.00R20 and 12.00R24 – in addition to the previous 10.00R20 size.
Galaxy Yardmaster Radial is specially designed for heavy tonnage forklifts that perform longer cycle of operations on demanding surfaces at higher speeds, the statement said, adding that the tyre’s radial construction provides enhanced agility, riding comfort and fuel efficiency while the tread design is optimised to provide superior stability and precision while performing operations. A special cut, chip and abrasion resistant compound makes for smooth running even on hard port surfaces.
On the haul trucks side, the Galaxy HTSR 400 (Haul Truck Steel Radial 400) E-4/L-4 is now available in three additional sizes: 23.5R25, 26.5R25 and 29.5R25. These sizes were designed specifically for construction and waste management application after an extensive tests phase, said the statement.
A recent global launch, the HTSR 400 E4/L4 has proven itself for transport logistics in harsh and demanding conditions, like mines or quarries, ATG added. The tyre is specially built for dump trucks that face extreme environments while hauling heavy loads and features a high tread depth which ensures consistent traction and greater cut resistance. The presence of special compounds ensures minimum heat build-up while performing longer runs. Superior cut and chip protection with optimised belt design increases durability, resulting in reduced downtime.
