New earthmoving tires get debut at CONEXPO
Titan will have its expanded STL2+ line on display at CONEXPO-CON/AGG 2017, in booth #S6536. The new 875/65R29 and its Low Sidewall Technology (LSW) equivalent, the LSW875/55R34.5, are specially suited to Cat 982M wheel loaders. Additional sizes in the lineup include 23.5R25, 26.5R25 and 29.5R25.
The dual-purpose E-3/L-3 tread can be selected with either cut-resistant or wear-resistant compounding for excellent performance in any operating conditions. The tied-in, bar lug design is open and non-directional for excellent self-cleaning, and the 130 percent level tread depth provides excellent traction and long life in rocky conditions.
“What really sets this tire apart is its tied-in lug pattern,” says Johni Francis, OTR global product manager, Titan International. “The lugs are designed to work together as one unit, which provides excellent stability and even wear. Couple that with a radial construction and several compound options and this tire is an excellent-performing, long-lasting choice for any earthmoving, aggregate or mining application.”
In addition to viewing an expanded earthmover lineup, visitors to the Titan booth can register for a chance to win $2,500 tire rebates, given away each day during the five-day show. The booth will also feature a mix of proven and new technologies for everything from skid steers up to mining haul trucks. Expect to see the industry’s leading bias designs, the latest in radial and LSW technology, and time-saving wheel technologies that can reduce tire rotation and replacement time by up to 50 percent.
