FAIRLAWN, Ohio (Nov. 21, 2013) — Trelleborg Wheel Systems Americas Inc. has launched the TH400 Trelleborg Agro Industrial radial tire range of tires in North America, designed for use on telescopic handlers, backhoes and mini loaders.
The tire features a tread pattern that was engineered and designed to "maximize abrasion and wear resistance," boosting overall tire strength and mileage in the toughest soils, Trelleborg said. An advanced radial casing and reinforced structure help to reduce lateral deformation, allowing for handling of heavy loads on slopes and providing greater maneuverability and comfort, the tire maker added.
Other features of the tire include rounded lug edges to increase cut resistance; overlapping lug heads for a smoother ride; and a center rib to improve lug stiffness.
"We've undertaken a number of field tests," said Andrea Masella, marketing manager, agricultural and forestry tires, Trelleborg. "These prove the shoulder and the lug shapes of the new TH400 Trelleborg Agro Industrial radial tire range give high traction capability when farming, even on muddy and soft soils."
A product information guide on Trelleborg's website shows nine available sizes for the tire: 340/80R18, 400/70R18, 400/70R20, 400/70R24, 440/80R24, 460/70R24, 500/70R24, 480/80R26 and 440/80R28.
