American tyre manufacturer, Yokohama is going to display its new R69 L5-S off-the-road radial tyres in size 18.00R25. The new product is specially designed for loaders used in underground mines.
Tom Clauer, Yokohama's manager of commercial and OTR product planning, said, "The R69 was designed exclusively to reduce downtime and increase efficiency, it's engineered for endurance and is the ideal tire for businesses looking to increase speed and loads during long-haul mining operations."
The benefits of the R69 L-5S are improved durability by using advanced compounds that resist heat build-up and fight cuts and chips, Cut-resistant tread and longer service life.
Added protection in underground mining excavations due to a high-angle sidewall that increases thickness and decreases sidewall stress. A stronger casing and more extensive rim contact area via high tensile strength bead cores that lower the bead stress and reduce the potential for slippage.
