Yokohama offers radial tire for rigid frame dump trucks
Yokohama Tire's new RL47A E-4 radial tire for rigid frame dump truck applications is now available in size 27.00R49. The RL47A, designed to handle longer high-speed hauls, is offered in four different compound options: CP (cut-protected), REG (regular), CP-S (special cut resistance) and HR (heat resistant).
"The RL47A runs faster, cooler and longer," said Bruce Besancon, Yokohama Tire vice president of OTR sales. "It's engineered to help earthmovers get the job done faster and more efficiently, which will have positive impact on the bottom line."Benefits of the RL47A include:
- Faster/longer hauls are in store thanks to the precise, heat dissipation grooves strategically placed across the tread. Additionally, specially designed thermal reduction architecture on the shoulder block provides extra heat dissipation.
- Longer service life and excellent cut resistance are insured via the larger, flatter footprint which distributes weight more evenly.
