ERL-50 joins Mitas earthmover range
The newest addition to the Mitas ERL earthmover tyre range has been unveiled at Bauma 2013. Like other products in the ERL range, the 20.5R25 ERL-50, which will be released globally in July, is intended for use on loaders, dozers and graders operating in rocky conditions. With the addition of the ERL-50, the ERL line-up now covers 12 sizes with tread depths ranging from 28 to 90mm.
“Customers demand durability and resistance to damage from our quarry tyres resulting in added value and lowered cost through the retreading of the tyre,” said Andrew Mabin, sales and marketing director at Mitas. “Mitas has the off-road expertise in industrial, agriculture and motorcycle tyres to provide operational solutions.”
Petr Hala stated that Mitas is “ready to move the earth.” Describing the new tyre’s qualities, the industrial product manager said “the ERL-50 tread pattern is particularly resistant to cut and wear. This radial tyre is designed for durability as Mitas altered its tread pattern and incorporated steel cord in the body and breaker.
“Mitas ERL and ERD tyres respond to various off-road surfaces by changing in tread design and functionality,” added Hala.
