Stellar Releases TM28 Mining Tire Manipulator
Stellar Industries has released the Stellar TM28 tire manipulator for mining tire service.
By utilizing a forklift or loader as a tire handler, this new manipulator brings increased user efficiency and equipment value to the market, the company says. It is available in either a long- or short-arm version. With a rated capacity of 28,000 lbs. (12,700 kg), the TM28 is equipped to handle large construction and mine equipment tires. Featuring 110-degree body rotation and 360-degree continuous rotating pads, the TM28 allows operators full control, increasing efficiency and productivity.
“Our customers have been asking us to enter the loader and forklift mounted space for some time,” said Tim Davison, sales and marketing manager at Stellar Industries. “It was important for us to make a product that could increase the productivity of our customer and not just create a product with the same value proposition as our competitors. We need to be able to give the customer more features, better performance and more value for their investment.”
There are many features to the TM28 that provide increased productivity for tire professionals, such as the optional side shift feature. This allows an operator to easily make small adjustments for better control over the tire.
The TM28 provides added versatility through its ability to attach and detach to equipment. By adding Stellar’s TM28 to existing equipment, professionals can increase equipment value by eliminating the need to buy dedicated equipment. The features designed into the TM28 make it strong, robust and easy to use, including an accessory mounting rail and fall back protection with integral lock ring catcher.
