Michelin North America Inc. has introduced Power Digger, a bias tire designed for wheeled excavators with a dual fitment for both original equipment and replacement applications.

“With 80% of wheeled excavators in the market operating with a dual configuration, the Power Digger provides a superior solution for construction performance,” says Justin Brock, North America compact line business manager for Michelin agriculture tires.

“To offer true market value, the tires that support this equipment must have resistance to everyday site impacts — the Power Digger offers this and more.”

Designed for construction applications, the 10.00-20 Power Digger tire offers bias construction, thicker sidewalls and a directional-lug design for excellent stability.

Michelin says the tire is structurally designed to allow for more stability in the contact patch area as the machine carries out 360-degree movements on varied surfaces.

The robust sidewalls are thicker to better resist impacts. The pronounced center arch of the tire contains more rubber to provide excellent wear. The tire also has a higher-load index of 147, which is superior to competitive tires.
