Maxxis On the Look Out For Industrial Tyre Distributors
Following the launch of its new skid steer tyres last year, Maxxis International UK is reportedly keen to appoint additional distributors to help develop business opportunities in a number of heavy industry sectors. Both the M9000 MT Loader, which is designed for use on heavyweight forklift trucks, and the M8000 Tuff-Guard – developed for use in extra heavy duty applications such as excavation – are designed to deliver superior traction and long life thanks to “extra strong casings, stronger sidewalls and specially formulated rubber compounds.”
The Maxxis M9000 MT Loader features extra-thick sidewalls, which offer improved puncture resistance while the tread compound is designed to enhance durability, helping to prevent down time and increase productivity. There is also a special rim guard for better tyre and wheel protection. It is available in a range of sizes from 10-16.5 8 PR to 15-19.5 12 PR.
Available in a full range of sizes up to 12.00-20, the M8000 Tuff-Guard includes a heavy duty construction which the company says adds “superior stability and adds counterbalancing weight to skid loader machines.” The self-cleaning tread delivers excellent traction while the extra-durable tread compound helps resist chunking and separation. A double sidewall aids stability and reduces bounce and the reinforced rim guard provides added tyre and wheel protection.
“The new M8000 Tuff-Guard and M9000 MT Loader are highly versatile tyres, purpose-designed to cope with the toughest of jobs and perform problem-free in a variety of heavy duty applications. Following their launch last May our industrial tyres have been very well-received and we are now aiming to develop new business, in areas such as construction, agriculture, landscaping and dockside loading and unloading, by appointing further distributors,” Maxxis International UK’s managing director Derek McMartin commented.
