Switching over to a larger wheel rim for agricultural applications is unnecessary when fitting the new Mitas EMR-01. The manufacturer specifically designed the size 20.5R25 tyre for wheel loaders used in farming and gave it a tread similar to that of a tractor tyre. The Trelleborg Group company comments that this tread offers superb self-cleaning properties and outstanding traction.
“Nowadays, wheel loaders are not only used in the construction industry but more and more in agriculture. The answer that Mitas has for this need is the EMR-01, with its unique traction tread design,” says Jaroslav Musil, product manager for Mitas construction tyres.
According to Mitas, the size 20.5 R 25 EMR-01 is best suited for operations on wet, muddy and soft surfaces where good traction characteristics are needed, and the manufacturer considers the tyre a superior alternative to traditional L2 and L3 industrial tyre tread patterns in these conditions. The EMR-01 is also suitable for use in light construction applications.
“Wheel loaders are usually mounted on 25 inch tyres with an industrial tread pattern,” adds Musil. “When farmers want to use the loader for agriculture work, they need to change to 26 inch rims to mount tyres with a traction tread pattern. With the Mitas 20.5 R 25 EMR-01, changing from industrial to agricultural tyres is much easier, as farmers can mount the tyres on to the wheel loaders original 25 inch rims.”
