PRESS RELEASE: Yokohama Tire's new RL47A E-4 radial tyre for rigid frame dump truck applications is now available in size 27.00R49.
The RL47A, designed to handle longer high-speed hauls, is offered in four different compound options: CP (cut-protected), REG (regular), CP-S (special cut resistance) and HR (heat resistant).
Bruce Besancon, Yokohama Tire vice president of OTR sales, said: "The RL47A runs faster, cooler and longer. It's engineered to help earthmovers get the job done faster and more efficiently, which will have positive impact on the bottom line."
Benefits of the RL47A include faster and longer hauls due to the precise, heat dissipation grooves strategically placed across the tread. Additionally, specially designed thermal reduction architecture on the shoulder block provides extra heat dissipation.
The tyre also has a longer service life and excellent cut resistance are insured via the larger, flatter footprint which distributes weight more evenly.
