With 30 years of experience in the clay extraction industry, Alfie Jones is a true quarry expert and he knows exactly what he needs from a tire when driving on slippery roads with a fully laden Rigid Dump Truck.
"The road conditions are very challenging: as we haul the clay, the roads will change because clay mixed with a bit of water will make the roads quite slippery and it will churn the roads up. That’s why we’ve got to have a good-treaded tire, so we can have good grip.”
Alfie Jones is using BKT’s EARTHMAX Tires for his Rigid Dump Truck.
BKT’s EARTHMAX Tires are specifically designed for operations requiring good traction and stability.
The tread depth and the unique tread pattern of these tires ensure excellent wear, minimizing vibration and noise. The All Steel casing provides extraordinary protection, durability and resistance to snags, cuts and punctures.
“We require good grip for safety on quite slippery roads and also a very good tread depth"
