Alliance Tire Group is marketing the Galaxy Yardmaster SDS as the ‘king of forklift tyres’. Developed and designed for warehouse operations, all kinds of loading and unloading work, shop-floor as well as port and yard operations, the Galaxy Yardmaster SDS is said to be “a true workhorse for long and demanding tasks”.
The tyre profile provides high lateral load carrying capacity, stability and traction whilst the smooth flat tread ensures even wear on hard surfaces. Thanks to the large industrial block pattern with improved tread block reinforcements, tread life and grip both are increased, and the strong central bar stabilises the tread blocks in extreme working conditions. Compound formulation offers improved cut, chip and wear resistance as well as minimum heat build-up when compared to competitors’ tyres, thus further adding to an outstanding long service life.
Due to the design as ‘3-stage-construction’ and the use of high performance materials, the tread compound maximises tire life, the centre compound ensures a smooth, cushioned ride and operator comfort whilst the base compound provides stability and allows for efficient road transfer.
Being released between April and September 2016, the different sizes will serve the 1 to 5.5 tonnes forklift range.
