MAXAM adds to MS708 wheel loader tyre offering with two new sizes

MAXAM has added two new sizes to the MS708 series of tyres to provide, it says, a zero-maintenance, three-stage solution to heavy-duty wheel loaders and underground mining applications.

The MAXAM MS708, now available in 30/75-29 & 18.00-25 sizes, is one of the most progressive solid off-the-road tyres on the market, constantly evolving for wheeled loaders operating in the most severe waste, recycling and underground mining applications, the company says. With the addition of the specific sizes, MAXAM can now deliver this design to even more cutting-edge equipment. The 18.00-25 is a size for underground mining, while the 30/75-29 is a solid tyre replacement for heavy-duty loader applications using 29.5R25, 29.5R29, and 875/65R29 sizes.

The low durometer centre compound combined with patented “Double D” apertures allows the MS708 to provide an excellent ride versus two-stage products, according to MAXAM. Featuring a  high traction and wearable tread pattern with 50% tread rubber, the MS708 is billed as delivering the deepest wearable tread in the market. Increasing its footprint as it wears and transitions through four distinct tread patterns, the MS708 ends in a standard L5 pattern to provide maximum tyre life. Incorporating a 25% heat-dissipating body, the MS708 delivers effective heat dissipation and superior ride quality.

The MS708 delivers maximum strength, extreme traction and high value. Manufactured using technologically-advanced equipment and proprietary building and curing processes, the MS708 is made to perform. This process, unlike most manufacturers, eliminates tread separation and delamination defects for extended wear rates, the company says.
