Bridgestone tyre for construction vehicles

Bridgestone India on November 29 announced the launch of its new tyre for construction vehicles segment, which is meant specifically for tipper/dumper owners who operate in high load segment.

Designed using proprietary software to optimise the tyre design, it is made of special tread compound for excellent cut-chip resistance on off road. The L370HL tyre is suitable for heavy load segment and will be available in the size 295/90R20.

The tyre is in block and shoulder lug design for heat radiation and block tear resistance respectively. The enforced bead structure improved the bead durability on the off road. This tyre will not only boost longevity but will also enhance robust performance, said a press release.

Dual Nylon Chafer is another special feature of the product which will protect the highly stressed body ply turn up, and spread the stresses over a larger area to reduce cracking.

Mr Parag Satpute, MD, Bridgestone India, said, “Cost-efficient logistics are key to the economics of the construction and mining sector. Downtime because of tyre malfunction can negatively impact the bottom line. Our L370HL is designed to weather the roughs of these sectors giving operators smooth logistics and thereby increasing productivity and efficiencies of these core sectors.”
