This radial constructed 27.00R49 / 33.00R51 / 40.00R57 earthmover tyre with an E4 tread pattern is designed for rigid dump trucks that operate in the most demanding off-road conditions.

Magna stated that the tyre offers an excellent tyre performance/purchase price, resulting in a low cost price per hour. The Magna M-RIGID is designed to achieve a highly efficient mining operation and to increase a site's profitability.

The Magna M-RIGID has massive rigid lug blocks that offer the traction and durability required in the most severe surface mines. The tread pattern design has four major innovations:

  • Weight reducing cut outs on the tread blocks and lugs, to reduce heat build-up and improve tyre life;
  • Circumferential groove in the tread pattern to improve steering control for enhanced heavy-load cornering performance and improved heat dissipation;
  • Interlocking shoulder blocks to reduce excessive movement during cornering, to reduce heat build-up, and to enhance operator comfort and tyre life; and
  • The optimised contact patch ensures even wear and improves tread life.

The M-RIGID is the ideal solution for modern RDTs such as Caterpillar, Komatsu, Terex and Hitachi, and will be available from May 2019.
