Mitas to Unveil First of 4 New Earthmover Tire Tread Patterns

March 10, 2016

Mitas a.s. will introduce a new tire for rigid dump trucks, the ERD-45 18.00R33, at Bauma, a trade fair for the construction industry, in April in Munich, Germany.

Mitas says the tire will be on the market in May 2016, and available in the U.S. by August. The pattern is designed for hard surface conditions, and Mitas says it offers excellent traction and sidewall protection, and is also highly resistant to cuts.

Mitas ERD-45 18.00R33 is a first size in Mitas' product offerings for rigid dump trucks. In 2017 and 2018 Mitas will offer three additional sizes of the ERD-45: 21.00R33, 21.00R35, and 24.00R35.

“Mitas is significantly extending its product range in the segment of earthmover tires and ERD-45 is one of the highlights,” says Andrew Mabin, Mitas’ sales and marketing director. “During 2016 we will introduce four new tread patterns and eight new tire sizes dedicated for the earthmover segment. These product launches are made possible thanks to the massive investment we did in our production plants in last years."

Beside brand new product launches at Bauma fair Mitas will also display new sizes in the current portfolio. At its stand Mitas will unveil the new tire size in ERL-40 segment which is the 29.5R25 ERL-40 designed for loaders and graders. Mitas ERL-40 is designed for hard conditions and as the whole ERL/ERD line it is radial with a steel-enforced carcass and steel breakers. It will be available on the market in September 2016.

Attendees at Bauma can see the new ERD-45 at Mitas' stand, No. 127 in hall 6. The trade show is scheduled for April 11-17, 2016.
