About the Matters Concerning Loader Tires

Loader tires, I believe everyone is familiar with them, and even some friends are very professional about the brand, specifications and models of loader tires. However, it is not easy to explain loader tires clearly. Below, we will discuss the function, types, and correct selection of loader tires.

Function of loader tires

Unlike family cars, the weight of car tires is relatively light and can basically support a weight of about 1.5T. Loaders, on the other hand, are much different from family cars. Loader tires not only need to overcome the weight of the loader itself, but also need to bear the weight of the loading material and the pressure formed by the impact in the fully loaded state.

Loader tires are also critical for the adhesion, wear resistance, heat dissipation, and buffering ability of the loader. The adhesion of loaders greatly affects the traction of loaders, and wear resistance and heat dissipation greatly affect the service life and stability of the tires. Unlike family cars, loaders do not have shock absorption systems. The bumpiness of loaders during driving needs to be overcome and absorbed by the tires, providing drivers with good driving comfort.

Types of loader tires

Currently, almost all common loader tires are low-pressure diagonal tires with inner tubes. This type of tire has strong load-bearing capacity, high wear resistance, and good anti-impact ability. Since the technical difficulty is not great and the manufacturing cost is low, loader manufacturers generally use this type of tire. However, this diagonal tire also has the advantages of high ground friction resistance, poor puncture resistance, and short service life, which means that some users often prefer radial steel wire tires when choosing loader tires. This type of tire has strong load-bearing capacity, the degree of tire deformation when the loader turns is small, the driving resistance is small, fuel consumption is good, and the puncture resistance is excellent. Currently, radial tires have high technical difficulty and manufacturing cost and are generally used in more severe operating conditions or large mechanical equipment.

Of course, in some special working conditions, such as stone quarries and mine mining, the use of tire protection chains can greatly enhance the wear resistance and load-bearing capacity of tires.

In some more severe working environments, such as garbage treatment plants, ironworks, and steel plants, solid tires are also very popular. They avoid the harm of tire puncture after damage, and their load-bearing capacity and buffering performance are also good. However, the manufacturing technology of this type of tire is difficult and the manufacturing process is complex, and the manufacturing cost is high. Currently, the quality of solid tires is mixed and the prices vary greatly. It is recommended to buy imported solid tires if using them. After all, the stability of all performance parameter indicators of imported solid tires in long-term use environments is relatively reliable, and you should not be tempted by cheap prices.
