Today, we’d like to take you on a short but powerful journey around the world in order to give you a closer look at our tires hard at work! We are going to show you a series of snapshots of our customers using BKT tires. We’ll find out which tires are mounted and what hard-hitting tasks they undergo!
1. Loaders in steel mill
Our Earthmax SR 30 tires equip the Phoenix Services loaders that transport iron materials throughout a steel mill area located in Marseille, France. Their resistance to wear, heavy loads and heat make these tires ideal for this type of heavy duty work.
2. Rigid dumpers in mines
The Earthmax SR 45 tires, mounted on a rigid dumper, are hard at work here at Cemex Deutschland AG. Every day, dumpers carry tons and tons of weighty sandstone in an open mine pit. This tire has received top marks for durability, reliability and strength.
3. Articulated dumpers in quarries
Here you can see Earthmax SR 41, mounted on an articulated dump truck, transporting materials in a quarry. Its resistant compound and the ultra-deep tread provide super strength and durability, allowing the tire to take on the rugged rocky Australian soil.
4. Reach Stackers in port applications
Moving on to the container handling industry. Our next stop is Turkey, where we went to see Port King Plus, mounted on a Reach Stacker, in action. Its special compound extends life and increases productivity, giving our tires the power necessary to carry out the job.
5. Container handlers in a freight village
Our short trip around the world ends in Italy, at Interporto Padua, where container handlers equipped with BKT Rock Grip Port Industrial (IND-4), move more than 4 million tons of goods a year. Impressive, right?
