Alliance launches A585 for compact & backhoe loaders
ATG has presented its latest addition to the Alliance tyre range at the Bauma show. The Alliance A585 has been developed for construction machinery such as compact and backhoe loaders. ATG says the A585 offers excellent traction on dry, wet and wintery surfaces. It adds that the tyre also features superior puncture resistance and extremely low wear, particularly when used on hard and highly abrasive surfaces.
“Operating machines instead of waiting for maintenance or replacement makes the difference between profitability and failure. That is why development engineers at Alliance Tire Group looked at the particular requirements of operations in the construction sector,” comments the tyre maker. As a result, it designed the Alliance A585 with a steel-belted design that provides “excellent puncture protection” and reinforced sidewalls that are resistant against damage from sharp-edged materials such as gravel. The tyre’s non-skid depth and rubber to void ratio reliably “ensure outstanding wear resistance and superior tyre life” even when used on abrasive surfaces such as concrete and tarmac.
To enable the A585 to cope with tight manoeuvring in confined areas as well as quick road transfers from one site to the next, ATG’s development engineers chose large and multi-directional tread blocks. “Design and construction of the new A585 thus provide perfect ground stability, ensure optimum load carrying capacity and offer massive grip and traction,” writes ATG.
The tyre’s tread was designed to possess excellent self-cleaning properties, facilitating a problem-free transition between operation on hard and soft surfaces. Comfort and safety during on-road use were also priorities, and ATG comments that “it goes without saying” that fuel efficiency ranked high on the development list.
The Alliance A585 will be available in six sizes by the end of July 2019. In addition to the 460/70R24 tyre on show at Bauma, the A585 will be produced in 500/70R24, 440/80R24, 400/70R20, 400/70R18 and 340/80R18.
