We have a positive outlook for the domestic construction market, and are determined to play a pivotal role in the country’s infra development. BKT’s showcase at bauma CONEXPO INDIA will include the following:

BKT’s Industrial and Construction Tires under the category AT 621 and size 9-16 are used in Backhoe Loader applications and provide excellent traction in severe conditions. Other features include wider lugs and increased puncture resistance, self-cleaning tread design and improved wear and cut-resistant tread compound.

BKT’s Forklift Tires under the category LM 81 and size 7.00R12 stand out for their specially designed aggressive and robust tread pattern and unique tread compound for high traction and long wear life. Their strong, all-steel casing and reinforced sidewall provides maximum stability and handling in lift mode. The radial casing absorbs surface irregularities to provide riding comfort, increase operator confidence and reduce fatigue. LM81 tires are anti-static compliant, in fact, all the sizes are capable of dissipating static charge from the vehicle.

The Solid Tires under the category MAGLIFT STD and size 8.25-15 are general purpose Forklift tires used for port operations, mining operations, and scrap yards. They have better abrasion, wear and cut-resistant tread compound, and a highly elastic centre cushion compound that provides excellent riding comfort. A specially designed tough base ensures dissipation of heat. The range is puncture-proof, gives smooth, trouble-free operation, and has bead wires in the base for firm grip to avoid any slippage during operation.

The Skid Steer Tires under the category GIANT TRAX and sizes 10-16.5 and 12-16.5 are most suited for scrap yard work, rough concrete surfaces, recycling operations and mines. Extra tread depth with bigger and sturdier block provide better traction and longer life, and their flat tread design provides more contact area for better stability. The special tread compound provides excellent chip and tear resistance, and the strong nylon casing provides excellent puncture resistance.

The Loader Tires under the category XL Grip and size 12.5/ 80-18 are used for Backhoe loaders. Their tough, non-directional tread pattern gives mounting versatility and excellent traction on rocky surfaces. Features include a centre tie-bar for high stability, self-cleaning tread design, strong casing and cut-resistant tread compound for cut/chip resistance and durability. Squared shoulder maximizes ground contact for high maneuverability and handling.

The Grader and Loader Application Tires G2/ L2 under the category SR 25 and size 14.00R24 are specifically engineered and designed radial tires for road building and graders. Key features include tapered tread bars and pen center to eject mud and dirt out of the tire as the tire moves, an all-steel strong casing and belt package for durability, long service life, and resistance to snags and punctures, and an aggressive non-directional tread pattern that delivers exceptional traction on all surfaces.

The Port application Tires under the category Portking Classic and size 18.00-25 are deployed in reach stackers and in container handling equipment. Key features include a unique wear-resistant compound that ensures higher initial tire life as compared to normal tread compound; an optimum footprint for even load distribution; strong sidewall for high stability in lift mode; and a strong nylon casing for higher load carrying capability, minimize impact breaks, snags, punctures, and higher retreads.

The All Steel OTR Radial Tires under the category Earthmax SR53 (L5) and size 23.5R25 are specifically designed for Loader and Dozer services. The range is suitable for severe rocky conditions and tough/rigorous scrap handling operations. The extra deep tread and customized compound delivers extended tread wear and resistance to rock cuts and punctures. The tread pattern is specifically designed for self-cleaning.

The Radial Loader Tire under the category BK-Loader 53 and size 405/70R20 is used in Loaders for Industrial and Transport applications. Its Aramid belted tire enhances puncture resistance, and its unique tread design gives lateral stability. Its extra deep tread and customized compound deliver extended tread wear and also provide resistance to cuts and punctures. Tread pattern is specially designed for self-cleaning and ensures good grip and traction on wet and dry surfaces.

BKT’s high-speed Radial Crane Tires under the category ARIOMAX AM 27 and size 445/95R25 are best suited for high speed mobile cranes. The five-rib pattern with continuous rib on the shoulder is suited for high speed and excellent steering. The special tread compound is used for optimal combination of wear and cut resistance. Its radial construction gives better comfort and a special tread design enables excellent traction on and off the road services. The strong steel belt package is used for increased resistance to cut and punctures.
