Yokohama Off-Highway Tires America Inc. has unveiled a new radial tire for articulated dump trucks, the RT41, in size 875/65R29.
The new tire has a cut-and-chip-resistant compound, high-traction block tread pattern and all-steel construction. It is also dual-marked as an E-4/L-4 tire.
“The 875/65R29 RT41 radial has been a huge success on loaders operating in shot rock, gravel and soft underfoot conditions and it has passed rigorous testing to be also designated an E-4 tire for articulated dump trucks,” says Dhananjay Bisht, product manager – earthmoving, construction and industrial tires for Yokohama Off-Highway.
“The features that make the Yokohama RT41 a great loader tire – the extra-strong bead package to transfer torque, the reinforced sidewalls, the block-tread pattern for excellent traction and heat dissipation and the evenly distributed footprint – make it an outstanding performer on articulated dump trucks.”
Bisht adds that the convenience of stocking a single 29-inch high-performance tire for both E-4 and L-4 applications makes purchasing and inventory management more efficient.
The Yokohama RT41 is also available as a dual-marked E-4/L-4 in 23.5R25, 26.5R25 and 29.5R25.
