Firestone Industrial Tire Division unveils new skid steer tire
The DuraForce HD is designed for skid steer loaders, aerial lift equipment and back hoe applications, and is available in three sizes.
It's the third product in Bridgestone/Firestone's DuraForce line, which is made in the United States.
The tire contains heavier ply ratings for severe service conditions, an aggressive rim deflector to guard against damage and debris accumulation, extra-wide lugs for longer wear and other features, according to company officials.
It will officially be unveiled next week at the annual Farm Progress Show in Alleman, Iowa.
