The LD-Master ensures high traction and durability for loaders with demanding load requirements, company says
Continental has launched its new LD-Master L5 Traction construction tyre expanding its ContiEarth range to include the radial tire, initially in size 35/65 R33.
The tyre, which will be presented at Bauma 2022, is specifically designed for loaders operating on abrasive surfaces.
In June 2022, Continental said it would offer NightViu premium lighting for the off-highway sector.
According to the company, the LD-Master L5 Traction offers high-level traction under demanding load requirements, a long service life and is fitted with tyre sensors ex-factory.
A reinforced carcass supports high load carrying capacity requirements and is protected by an L5 traction tread pattern while an extra deep tread and sidewall protection improves tyre robustness and long-term productivity, the company says. Digital tyre monitoring platform ContiConnect 2.0 is used to optimise the service life of the tyre.
In August 2022, Magna Tyres said it would introduce new tread patterns for mining equipment at Bauma 2022.
“To minimise idle time and ensure serviceability even under harsh conditions, the special tyres fitted to construction machinery should be controlled as precisely as possible,” said Continental in a statement.
“The LD-Master L5 Traction is fitted with an integrated tyre sensor ex-factory, making monitoring possible in real time. The sensor monitors temperature and tyre pressure, assuring at all times the most efficient operation mode for a long tyre life,” the company added.
Late in August 2022, Mitas expanded its tyre range for wheeled and backhoe loaders.
