DANVERS, Mass. — Maxam Tire North America has expanded and upgraded its underground mining series, improving its offerings for articulated dump trucks and load-haul dump loaders.
The underground mining lineup not only delivers advantages for aggressive applications, but also provides various heat-severity requirements for customers, Maxam said, noting the tires offer maximum stability and traction.
The four-star-rated E4/L4 MS405 and MS406 for articulated dump trucks boast 60% higher load capacity, Maxam claims, while the MS405 features a high-traction pattern with increased wearable tread and heavy-duty casing.
The MS406 features a deep lug pattern for improved traction and resistance to wear and cutting, maximizing performance with the lowest cost-per-hour for underground mining applications, Maxam said.
To deliver improved puncture and cut resistance that load-haul dump loaders require in underground mining, Maxam said it has improved the L5/L5S MS501 and MS502 to yield 15% higher load capacity.
Combining reinforced bead, shoulder and sidewall, both the MS501 and MS502 tackle severe underground mining jobs with a specialized mining compound for extra cut and impact resistance.
"With the underground mining market facing increasing demands, the expansion of our four-star E4/L4 and 3-star L5/L5S lineups mark Maxam's pledge to design only the most capable solutions for the industry," Matt Johnson, vice president of Maxam Mining Group, said.
"While every underground site has unique needs, we're confident that the increased load capacity our series now have will perform beyond expectation. ... (the) enhanced lineups for underground mining symbolize Maxam's commitment to play an integral part in the mining industry's operation and future."
