DANVERS, Mass. — Maxam Tire North America has expanded its port/terminal tire series with the MS307 Portxtra IND-3 and MS407 Portxtra IND-4.
The new Portxtra series features compounding and tread design to exceed port sites' standards for heavy load requirements, the company said.
The MS307 Portxtra IND-3 was developed with an all-steel radial tread specifically designed for port applications that run heavy loads for long cycle times. It features an extra wide tread profile and reinforced sidewall for improved stability on long distances. Manufactured to withstand high heat, the MS307 allows for longer operating hours, Maxam said.
The MS307 Portxtra is now available in four sizes, ranging from 12.00R20 to 14.00R24.
The MS407 Portxtra IND-4 features a deep belt-stabilized tread that provides users with improved traction, longer tread life and low heat buildup, the company said. Engineered with a high-quality casing and a wear-and-cut resistant compound, the MS407 is retreadable.
The MS407 is available in six sizes, ranging from 10.00R20 to 14.00R25.
"In a rapidly growing worldwide market, the Portxtra product line was developed to tackle both the most complex and utilized machines requiring ever-increasing productivity. To meet the demands of port applications, the MS307 and MS407 are engineered to carry heavy loads while safely stacking and transporting containers making thousands of return trips," Jimmy McDonnell, vice president at Maxam Tire North America, said.
