Švehlova, Czech Republic – Mitas will unveil a new tire designed specifically for mobile cranes, at the Bauma fair, 11-17 April in Munich, Germany, the company announced 21 March.
Labelled 445/95R25 CR-02, the tire features a new tread design and is said to improve operating efficiency due to its lighter construction.
Mitas’ CR-02 tires can be mounted on a one-piece rim, which reduces the overall weight of the mobile crane, thereby reducing fuel consumption.
“Crane tires are technologically advanced. They are able to carry very heavy loads even in high speeds of up to 85 km/h,” noted Jaroslav Musil, Mitas’ product manager for industrial tires, in the Mitas release.
