ATG launches new Galaxy Mighty Trac ND
The new Galaxy Mighty Trac ND is a freshly-developed L-4 tyre for skid steer loaders, which is designed to equally excel “on hard surfaces like roads or paved farm yards as well as sticky mud, loose sand, or snow”. The Galaxy Mighty Trac ND is available in sizes 10-16.5NHS and 12-16.5NHS. A 14-17.5NHS variant is currently under development.
The tyre features a non-directional tread pattern, which is characterised by large tread blocks, stepped shoulder lugs, and angular sipes. Whilst the large lugs lead to a footprint that is 10 per cent larger than the footprint of comparable competitor tyres, the grip-enhancing angular sipes play a vital role in ensuring reliable traction on slippery surfaces. According to the company, the new Galaxy skid steer tyre also surpasses competition tyres in terms of “high on-road wear resistance, effective cut and chip resistance, tensile strength and modulus, as well as its particularly outstanding heat resistance”.
“This new tyre for skid steer loaders was developed for owners and operators who need top performers year in year out, and on all kinds of surfaces, without having to change tyres from summer to winter and back. Thanks to its special construction and compounds used, that is exactly what the Mighty Trac ND stands for”, says Angelo Noronha, president EMEA at Alliance Tire Group.
