Hauler Truck Tire Line has
Michelin has introduced the new MEMSready
Earthmover (40.00 R 57 and
53/80 R 63) XDR3 tire line for rigid body
trucks operating in surface mines. Three
design innovations increase tire life by a
minimum of 10% over its predecessor,
the MICHELIN XDR 2, the company reported.
A new tread pattern improves heat
dissipation up to 8° C; puts more rubber
in contact with the driving surface; and
features interlocking shoulder blocks for
reduced movement on cornering and further
reduction of wear. Four-compound
rubber results in more uniform composition,
higher wear resistance and higher
thermal capacity. The steel cables are
10% stronger and encapsulated in rubber
to reduce corrosion and wear.
The 40.00 R 57 MICHELIN XDR3 is
currently available. The 53/80 R 63 hits
the market in January.
