Camso is introducing seven tires for the compact construction industry. The new products include five multi-purpose tires (MPT), in addition to two new radial solutions for grading and earth moving applications.
The company is revamping its MPT line-up with additional sizes, new tread patterns and improved technologies to better suit the versatile work they typically are applied to.
David De Waele, executive director of product management – construction at Camso, said, “MPT refers to a range of compact construction equipment using mostly the same tires but handling a range of different jobs: agriculture, road building, residential and commercial construction, scrapyards, landscaping, snow removal and more.
“Machines using multi-purpose tires consist of telehandlers, compact wheel loaders and mini-dumpers, although the same sizes may also be fitted on backhoe loaders, concrete truck mixers and rough terrain forklifts.
“Just because a tire size fits the machine, that doesn’t necessarily mean it’s the right tire for the application, what’s important to know is that ‘multi-purpose’ doesn’t necessarily mean ‘multi-application’.
“To ensure optimal machine performance and lowest operating cost, you need a tire especially designed for the application you’re running. For that, you need to combine three core elements: size, tread pattern and technology.”
In addition to the five MPT products, Camso is also introducing two new radial solutions – the GRD 533R and EMT 553R are designed for motor graders, and for wheel loaders and articulated dump trucks, respectively.
