Largest OTR Tire Handler
Stellar Industries has unveiled what it claims is the industry’s largest truck-mounted OTR tire manipulator, the TM20165, capable of changing the largest OTR tire on the market today, the 59/80R63. The TM20165 is capable of handling tire and rim combinations weigh-ing up to 20,000 lb (9,100 kg) and has more than 24 ft (7.3 m) of reach capabili-ty. The unit’s capacity rating also allows it to mount and dismount outside as well as inside duals without repositioning the tire manipulator truck. The TM20165 has a clamping span of 44–165 in. (112–419 cm), with continuous manipulator pad rotation and 315° body rotation. It comes standard with a fully proportional radio remote control system. The TM20165 has a quad stabilizer package that has a low profile and a hydraulically extendable fold over rear stabilizer set that offers high stability when lifting large mounted OTR tires.
