Two new Galaxy Yardmaster sizes
A pair of new tyres have entered the Galaxy Yardmaster range. The size 250-15 NHS and 300-15 NHS fitments for forklifts are designed for high performance in medium intensity operations, and Alliance Tire Group says they can be distinguished by a strong casing with stiff sidewalls, which ensure pneumatic ride comfort and stability particularly during lifting operations.
“The smooth flat tread radius allows for even wear on hard surfaces whilst the strong central tie bar stabilises the tread blocks,” shares ATG in a statement. “A special wear resistant compound, the improved tread block reinforcement and the reinforced sidewalls protect Yardmaster tyres against cuts, chips and wear during all kinds of forklift operations.”
The Galaxy Yardmaster 250-15 NHS carries a PR of 16 while the Yardmaster 300-15 NHS as a PR of 20; ATG says the two tyres were “developed to easily cope with various working environments,” such as the smooth concrete surfaces within warehouses and the tarred, paved or uneven ground in yards. “In all cases, sharp edges of debris or stored material frequently threaten to damage the sidewalls of forklift tyres. That is why the sidewalls of Yardmaster tyres were particularly reinforced.”
ATG reports that a strong casing “ensures pneumatic ride comfort and excellent stability during all transport and lifting operations,” whilst the tread and the flat tread radius “ensure traction as well as optimum load distribution and footprint.” While they offer a similar load carrying capacity and stability in operation with the heavy-duty Yardmaster Ultra forklift tyre range, they have a reduced tread depth.
