Yokohama Tire Corporation launches R69™ OTR Radial Tire for Loaders
Yokohama Tire Corporation’s new R69™ L5-S off-the-road radial for loaders in underground mine applications is now available in size 18.00R25. The tire will be on display at Yokohama’s booth (#7371) at MINExpo in Las Vegas,.
“The R69 was designed to reduce downtime and increase efficiency,” said Tom Clauer, Yokohama manager of commercial and OTR product planning. “It’s engineered for endurance and is the ideal tire for businesses looking to increase speed and loads during long-haul mining operations.”
Benefits of the R69 L-5S include:
Improved durability via advanced compounds that resist heat build-up and fight cuts and chips.
Superb cut-resistant tread and longer service life thanks to a durable belt package, along with enhanced compounds that deliver an extremely durable and stable footprint.
Added protection in underground mining excavations thanks to a high-angle sidewall that increases thickness and decreases sidewall stress.
- A stronger casing and more extensive rim contact area via high tensile strength bead cores that lower bead stress and reduce the potential for slippage.
