Maxxis Launches Industrial Tyre Range
Maxxis International UK have introduced a new range of skid steer tyres designed for versatility and the ability to tackle a range of heavy-duty tasks. The M9000 MT Loader has been developed for heavyweight forklift trucks, while the company recommends the M8000 Tuff-Guard for use in extra heavy duty applications, such as excavation.
The Maxxis M8000 Tuff-Guard is available in a full range of sizes up to 12.00-20, while the M9000 comes in a range of sizes from 10-16.5 8 PR to 15-19.5 12 PR.
Simultaneously, the brand has announced their new Sur Trak C9208 All Terrain Vehicle utility tyre. The Sur Trak features dual traction lugs, to channel loose soil away from the contact patch and a durable nylon carcass designed to improve puncture resistance. It has a multidirectional tread design, lending the tyre increased traction on a variety of surfaces.
The Sur Trak has been competition-tested in the USA, in the Grand National Cross Country series and in the BAJA 1000. It is available in sizes AT22x11.00-8 2PR TL to AT26x12.00-12 2PR TL.
Maxxis UK’s MD, Derek McMartin, points towards the importance of the agricultural sector in the ATV tyre market: “Despite the growing popularity of competition racing, it is the agricultural sector that continues to account for over 90% of ATV tyre sales in this country.” With this in mind, Maxxis are hoping to exploit both of these markets with their new addition.
