BKT Expands Industrial Tire Lineup
Balkrishna Industries Ltd. (BKT) has added two products, the MAGLIFT ECO and the MAGLIFT Premium, to its forklift tire portfolio.
The ECO features two layers of rubber compound and very wide lugs "to guarantee outstanding stability and excellent load distribution," according to BKT officials. It also sports a rim guard to protect against damage, plus other features designed to enhance fuel economy and minimize heat build-up.
The Premium features an extra-deep tread for long life, a robust overall tread design for "excellent steering control and great forward and lateral traction. The central grooving of the tread ensures low rolling resistance."
BKT officials say all products in the company's MAGLIFT line "have in common excellent load distribution, stability, safety and high load capacity -- essential characteristics for a tire for forklifts. Also of fundamental importance is the compound used in these products, which BKT has made resistant, in particular, to wear and tear and to cuts."
The MAGLIFT range is available in 23 sizes.
