New l-5 size for BKT’s Earthmax SR 51

BKT recently launched a new size for its Earthmax SR 51 tyre: 875/65 R 29 L-5


The new 65 series tyre line is specially designed for wheel loaders working in aggressive applications, in highly abrasive rock quarries, and landfills.

This is possible thanks to the cut resistance extra deep L-5 tread that can offer excellent cut and puncture protection and longer wear life, BKT says. The Earthmax SR 51 also features an extra sidewall protection designed for exceptional traction and durability, the manufacturer adds.

 Its strong structure and cut-resistant compounds can help increase productivity and operating hours, preventing downtime due to tyre damage. BKT says the low-profile design and reinforced beads offer excellent stability and lead to a longer life while the square-shaped shoulder laterally ejects gravel and reduces the risk of punctures.

The new 875/65 R 29 L-5 size adds to existing 17.5 R 25, 20.5 R 25, 23.5 R 25, 29.5 R 29, 35/65 R 29, and 35/65 R 33. All feature the special L-5 class tread with cut-resistant compound and are popular sizes for all loading applications, meeting the demanding needs of OTR equipment applications globally.

The company says the Earthmax SR 51 is just one of their many tyres specifically designed to promote a better distribution of loads for dump trucks, wheel loaders, dozers, graders, and some multi-purpose vehicles.

The range brings together in a single line more than 20 different tyres for the OTR sector that vary depending on the application, the surface, and the machinery. They are also available in numerous sizes and compound variants.
