Mitas adds to family of earthmover tires
Mitas will unveil an ERL-30 earthmover tire at the International Exhibition for Equipment and Techniques for Construction and Materials Industries (INTERMAT) in Paris April 20-25, 2015 at its stand E051, Hall 5a.
The company says the new Mitas 29.5R25 ERL-30 tire will be available for worldwide sales early in June 2015.
ERL tires are used on loaders, dozers and graders in mining operations. Mitas says the all-steel radial construction of the 29.5R25 ERL-30 tire is particularly designed for large wheel loaders such as Liebherr L 586 and Caterpillar 980.
"Mitas has massively invested in new production facilities for industrial tires at its plant in Zlin, the Czech Republic. The range extension of ERL-30 is proof that we will grow stronger in the industrial tire segment," says Andrew Mabin, sales and marketing director.
The company says several sizes of Mitas OTR tires underwent very severe tests in open mines in Siberia and proved performance comparable with premium brands.
Mitas will display several earthmover tires at INTERMAT:
* 23.5R25 201A2 ERL-50 TL MI;
* 29.5R25 208A2 ERL-30 TL MI;
* 750/65R25 190B ERD-30 TL MIl and
* 26.5R25 193B ERD-40 TL MI.
The Mitas 26.5R25 193B ERD-40 have been tested at JSC "Tuchkovsky KSM" in Russia on dump truck Volvo – A35D since May 2012. The tires are in good condition after more than 11,000 operating hours to continue in the test, according to the company.
Mitas says the ERL-30 tread pattern is particularly resistant to wear. ERL-30 is designed for mixed conditions of soft and hard terrain. The whole ERL/ERD line is radial with a steel-enforced carcass and steel breakers. ERL/ERD tires support retreading. This set of earthmover tires responds to various off-road surfaces by changes in tread design and functionality.
Mitas ERL tires fit on loader and grader machinery, and ERD tires are intended for transport vehicles. These include wheel loaders, dozers and graders, dumpers and scrapers.
