Who’s the strongest?
Among Mitas tyres for construction machinery, the uncontested load capacity champion is the 26.5-25 32PR EM-60 designed primarily for heavy construction machines. At a speed of 10 km/h, its load capacity is an impressive 17,000 kg, which increases when stationary to a full 27,200 kg. This parameter is important for various types of loaders and other earth-moving machines used to handle construction materials. The EM-60 tyres were developed precisely for such heavy construction and other machinery working in combined modes and are characterized by their excellent self-cleaning ability. In terms of load capacity, this design even surpasses radial tyres for mobile cranes where load capacity is the key parameter.
Who’s the fastest?
Although most construction and material handling machines aren’t built primarily for speed, and they’re not going out on a race circuit anytime soon, this product group still includes some fast tyres. These are labeled MPT, or multipurpose tyres. The 335/80R20 and 365/80R20 MPT-20 boast a top speed of 110 km/h. And they truly take advantage of this rating when used for municipal, maintenance and other special vehicles designed for both on-road and off-road application. Their universal and very durable tread pattern combined with their radial construction make them predestined for this purpose.
