Michelin introduces new 49-inch tire for 100-ton mining and quarry dump trucks
Michelin North America has introduced a new 49-inch tire for 100-ton mining and quarry dump trucks ─ the Michelin XD Mineworks 27.00R49 ─ that is specifically designed for dependable performance and addressing the aggressive everyday needs of mines and quarries in North America.
"Michelin has a strong heritage when it comes to supporting mines, quarries and contractors," said Sarah Robinson, Michelin North America's B2B mining marketing manager. "Developed by a team of global experts, the Michelin XD Mineworks tire is built with high-quality innovations that customers know and trust."
The Michelin XD Mineworks tire is designed with a new tread pattern and tread depth to deliver even wear on hard soil and a worry-free product experience.
Utilizing the latest mining tire design principles, the tire incorporates casing and high-wear resistance compound technologies for surface mining tires to handle heavy loads at lower pressure and is designed for good balance between TMPH and wear resistance.
Due to tough cables and innovative architecture, the Michelin XD Mineworks tire allows operators to run with less pressure than competitor tires for the same load, which can deliver big benefits for the operator and the equipment. The non-directional, 66.0 mm tread minimizes stone retention.
