Maxam introduces MS709 telehandler tyre
Maxam Tire has expanded its construction tyre portfolio with an all-new telehandler tyre produced in the company’s recently-inaugurated solid tyre factory in Vietnam. It’s called the Maxam MS709, and Maxam says it has engineered the tyre to “provide the industry with a rugged and long-lasting solution for demanding construction applications.”
Sharing information about the tyre’s during performance validation the MS709 “displayed optimum efficiency and traction compared to other solid telehandler tyres in the market.” The manufacturer adds that the 100 per cent rubber tyre “provides durability and the highest standard of ride quality in the industry.”
The developers gave the MS709 a reinforced centreline to eliminate the lug flexing and tearing that often occurs in many solid telehandler tyres. They also employed a tread compound that runs cooler, resisting wear and chunking.
Describing the Maxam MS709’s non-directional tread as “extra deep” and “aggressive”, the tyre maker says its engineering team chose the pattern to maximise traction and eliminate tyre slippage. With a zero-maintenance airless tyre construction, the MS709 also removes the risk of downtime due to punctures or sidewall damage as well as the need for routine air pressure checks. Maxam Double-D apertures provide an extra cushion in harsh working environments.
“Delivering a premium solid telehandler to the industry, the Maxam MS709 provides exceptional performance, no maintenance and the industry’s leading tread life,” comments Maxam Tire. It currently offers the MS709 in two common telehandler sizes: 13.00-24 and
