Apollo Tyres launches new radial tyres for compact construction equipment


The Terra Pro 1044 and Terra Pro 1045 have been developed to offer stability in tough ground conditions

Apollo Tyres has launches two new radial tyres for compact construction equipment such as telescopic handlers, compact loaders and backhoe loaders.

The Terra Pro 1044 and Terra Pro 1045 steel belted radial tyres are engineered for tough conditions, offering increased robustness and stability, the company said.

All Terra Pro tyres feature a steel belt and a tie bar, making the tyres stable during loading and lifting, while a sidewall protector and special cut and crack resistant compound improves robustness while working in mud or on debris.

In late August 2022, Mitas expanded its tyre range for wheeled and backhoe loaders and, in early September 2022, BKT launched its new Multimax MP 538 tyre for telehandlers.

 

The Terra Pro 1045 features a symmetrical tread consisting of alternating hexagons, helping with “stability in all directions even on slopes”. The hexagons are designed for even wear and good wear resistance especially while turning and manoeuvring with heavy loads. The symmetrical design also allows for equal traction driving forward and backward, the company stated.

The typical industrial traction pattern of the Terra Pro 1044 ensures traction on soft underfoot conditions like mud. The wide and V-shape ending of the lug in the centre part of the tread further improves stability whilst supporting a uniform wear pattern, it added.

In late September 2022, Continental launched its LD-Master L5 Traction construction tyre.
