BKT showcased its Finest Tires & Introduces Rubber Tracks

BKT, the Off-highway tire major, showcased some of its finest tires for the mining sector and construction earthmoving equipment at Excon, namely E4 EARTHMAX SR468 TL and L5 EARTHMAX SR53 TL. Along with the newly introduced rubber tracks for the compact track loaders, the company demonstrated its ‘Made in India’ ethos with world-class, cutting-edge tires.

The highlight was the giant EARTHMAX SR 468 TL, the latest addition to the EARTHMAX family. This 57” tire (40.00R57) is equipped with an All-Steel structure, providing greater casing resistance. A winning feature is the special tread design and the compound, created to limit heat generation and resistance to cuts, and is designed for challenging mining terrains.

Also on display was the 45/65R45 EARTMAX SR 53 TL, an All-Steel radial tire specially designed for ultra-large loaders, operating in severe rocky conditions. The classified deep L-5 tread consists of a cut-resistant compound. The tire is designed to offer extraordinary abrasion-resistant properties while in loading operation.

BKT also showcased its newly introduced rubber tracks, designed for compact track loaders. “BKT is the only tire company in India to produce rubber tracks for Agricultural and Industrial Machines. We have recently started production of rubber tracks for harvesting machines for paddy fields,” informs Ashok Chhajer, Sr. General Manager, OE Sales, Balkrishna Industries Ltd (BKT).

“We are also geared up to offer innovations in the mining tire segment, which will be a core area for the company’s business going forward. Our R&D teams have come up with new technologies to meet the demands of the mining sector and build even more robust tires,” he adds.

The company has been working on the radial tires for a long time now and has introduced a new range – Mineforce 27.00-49 and 24.00-35, in the mining sector under the sub-brand BKT MineForce. The company sees potential for gaining momentum in this sector owing to the increase in mining activities across the globe.

The BKT group has over 30 years of experience in the off-highway tires segment, manufacturing an extensive and modern range of Off-Highway tires specifically for vehicles operating in agricultural, industrial, earthmoving, mining, port, ATV, and gardening industries.

BKT tires are highly durable, have impressive load-bearing tenacity, higher resistance, and superior strength. The company’s innovative solutions are designed to meet the most demanding ranges of use and entail over 3,200 different products sold in more than 160 countries worldwide.

“At BKT, we follow a rigorous testing and developing practice that has helped our products to be recognized as extremely reliable with the lowest claim ratio in the industry. Our new products, based on the latest technologies, will be a game-changer for the mining industry,” says Ashok Chhajer.
