How to Choose the Loader Tyre
Tyres are definitely an important part of the operation of a loader, not only related to the actual quality of vehicle use, but also closely related to the traction, braking, and even economy of the loader. Scientific selection and application of loader tyres are very important for cost savings, increasing safety factors, and extending the life of tyres, especially in the mining work environment where tyres need to be selected carefully and reasonably.
Selecting loader tyres based on application
Wheeled loaders are usually manufactured for very specific applications, and tire requirements are equally specific in order to meet materials being dug and moved, surface conditions, as well as travel distance and speed. Consideration of these factors and the size of the bucket and the load it must carry can help you choose the perfect loader tire with the appropriate structure, tread depth, and pattern for the application.
There are many factors to consider: the type of machine used, its size, its application, and the type of operation it is performing. Another fundamental factor in selecting the best tyres is the soil condition in which it will be working. Working time, distance covered, and type of route are also factors. Finally, consider the weight that the machine must transport, load and/or unload.
To extend the life of loader tyres, the perfect product that suits your needs must be selected first. We always tell our customers to trust our tire consultants and suppliers. These are increasingly specific and high-tech products. It is the expert's task to successfully translate the requirements of each company into perfect tire selection. By choosing the correct product, time, consumption, and possible replacement and downtime can be saved.
Radial and bias loader tyres
You need to decide whether to use radial tyres or bias tyres. Radial tyres have better cut resistance, better traction, and lower operating temperature, which maximizes normal operating time, while bias tyres have better stability, providing better ride comfort for large loaders.
Longer cycles often accumulate heat. This is where you calculate whether to invest in radial tyres, as they can allow you to travel more tons per mile per hour because they can operate more safely and efficiently over longer distances.
Radial tyres are often more expensive than bias tyres. However, because they provide better traction and floatation, total ownership costs of the machine may be lower. It also helps to reduce fuel consumption. For applications where traction, tread wear, and distance are important factors, radial tyres are the ideal choice. They are suitable for loading operations on the completed surface that wheeled loaders operate on.
Selecting the right loaders tyres tread
After determining the best type of tire for the application, the next step is selecting the tread pattern or tire design. The correct tread design, tread depth, and load capacity are key to determining the correct tire that will maximize your loader's performance. It is important to understand whether you are looking for a tire that can provide better heat resistance, cut resistance, and traction, or one that can increase overall wear and tear costs.
L-type tyres are designated for wheeled loaders and wheeled scrapers, as well as E-type tyres for earthmoving machines, G-type tyres for graders, and C-type tyres for compaction machines. For loader tyres, there is a standardized identification code.
