MAGOG, Québec (Feb. 7, 2017) — Off-road tire specialist Camso Ltd. has rolled out an underground mining tire it calls the "most advanced underground mining tire" for load-haul-dump (LHD) equipment.
The MST 776 features a smooth, extra-deep L5 tread pattern that Camso said helps to provide tread volume, durability and puncture resistance.
The tire's amplified contact surface help to improve traction and minimize slippage.
Other features include:
- A premium rubber compound that provides resistance against tread and sidewall wear and cuts, and reduces carcass heat build-up;
- An impact guard sidewall designed to deflect debris and reduce stress cracking; and
- A rim guard protector that shields the wheel for extended life and constant inflation.
