Yokohama Off-Highway Tires has recently introduced an all new pneumatic solid tyre for wheel loaders – the Galaxy LHD 510 SDS which presents improved levels of performance, traction and longer life.
As a Severe Duty Solid (SDS) product the Galaxy LHD 510 has been specifically produced for extreme applications and working conditions such as in waste management working , metal scrap yards and other environments including recycling centre activities.
Also, alongside a special compound formulation the tyre’s solid construction ensures a high load-carrying capacity and puncture, chipping, chunking and heat build up protection to effectively reduce wear. Whilst sidewall apertures ease fatigue on hard and uneven surfaces.
At the same time the company has recently announced further price increases for its brands in Europe which will take effect immediately and see prices for Alliance and Galaxy tyres rise by approximately five per cent. These price increases have been fuelled by rising costs of raw materials by as much as 30 per cent and freight rates.
