This new addition is especially suited to Cat 982M wheel loaders, and adds to the company’s existing list of sizes, which include a 23.5R25, 26.5R25 and 29.5R25. The dual-purpose E-3/L-3 tread can be selected with either cut-resistant or wear-resistant compounding for excellent performance in any operating conditions.
Johni Francis, OTR global product manager at Titan International, said: “What really sets this tyre apart is its tied-in lug pattern. The lugs are designed to work together as one unit, which provides excellent stability and even wear. Couple that with a radial construction and several compound options — and this tyre is an excellent-performing, long-lasting choice for any earthmoving, aggregate or mining application.”
The tied-in, bar lug design is open and non-directional for excellent self-cleaning, and the 130%-level tread depth provides excellent traction and long life in rocky conditions. In addition to the currently available sizes, Titan is also testing a low sidewall (LSW) version of the STL2+ for the Cat 982M, which is expected to be unveiled at MINExpo 2016. The LSW version of the STL2+ is among many announcements and product launches which will be unveiled at MineExpo 2016.
