The tyres are available in various compounds including standard, cut resistant and heat resistant. The customer first used the Magna MB440 Bias tyre but has chosen to go for the Magna MA04+ radial tyres.
The all-steel radial constructed tyres, which are especially designed for coal applications, are suitable for the severe conditions in which they are used. The deep aggressive E4 pattern and excellent resistance to sidewall damages makes these giant tyres extremely durable. The customer is reportedly very pleased with the overall performance of the tyres.
The Magna MA04+ is designed and constructed based on the latest Magna radial tyre technology. The company stated that the high-tech casing reduces heat building inside the tyre which results in lower fuel consumption, higher efficiency, optimised operator comfort and prolonged service life. Additionally, the tyre offers excellent puncture resistance compared to less-durable cross-ply tyres, leading to a low cost price per hour.
