The Giant line is being expanded in the EARTHMAX range.
EARTHMAX SR 468 has been created, designed to fit out rigid dump trucks. So far the prototype has been made in the 40.00 R 57 size and is ready to be tested in coming months by BKT engineers.
EARTHMAX SR 468 is equipped with an All Steel structure which provides greater resistance to the casing and hence against damaging attacks. In addition, it stands out for the special design of the tread and the compound, created to limit the heat generated. The E-4 depth of the tread provides extreme resistance in highly challenging conditions.
Moreover, this product has already proven its tenacity before being tested.
Yes, because the story of EARTHMAX SR 468 is truly unique.
The new machinery to make this enormous tire reached the Indian plant in Bhuj last January, just before the lockdown and therefore could not be quickly installed.
Only after a temporary shutdown of the manufacturing facilities, which was necessary to finalize a rigorous safety plan for all staff, did activities finally return to full operation.
And then the installation of the new machinery for the 57” Giant tire started, thanks to the online help of the manufacturer and to the BKT engineers on site.
BKT management is very proud of this result and, in this extremely particular moment, wishes to launch a positive message to the market, the partner distributors, customers and end users. It is more important than ever to take forward Research and Development into new products, which helps not only the company evolve, but also the whole sector.
