ConExpo launch for new Yokohama lines
At next month’s CONEXPO-CON/AGG construction industry trade show in the US, Yokohama Tire Corporation will unveil two new OTR radials – the RL45 and the RL51. Both tyres are described by Tim Easter, Yokohama’s director of OTR sales as spotlighting the company’s “latest technology in OTR radial tyre tread design.” Easter says the new treads “are more durable and last longer.”
The RL45 E-4 is made for articulated dump trucks and scrapers and the L-4 version is for front-end loaders. “It’s the toughest radial for the most demanding applications,” comments Easter. “Many manufacturers combine the L-4 and E-4 into a single application, but Yokohama built a tyre for each, so there is no compromise for either application.” The RL45 is available in size 26.5R25.
The RL51 L-5 application is designed for front-end loaders and graders. “This is a resilient radial for high-cut uses,” says Easter. “It has incredible traction and stability. It will not sway under load thanks to the advanced belt package.” The RL51 is available in size 23.5R25.
