Macmahon, Australia's leading contractor supplying services in surface and underground mining, civil construction and resources engineering teamed up with RUD Chains, BKT Tires and TradeFaire International to collaborate on the world’s first custom loader tyre.
Mining sites require tyre protection chains on loaders to last longer and reduce downtime. However, the process of ordering tyres, getting them ready for protection chains and then installing the chains is a long process, which according to Macmahon involves:
According to Macmahon on the Custom Loader Tyre, this process is not only time-consuming but expensive. In addition, it is not environment friendly because the rubber shaved off from the tyres end up in landfills, contributing to waste. Macmahon found a way to improve sustainability practices by manufacturing custom tyres by teaming up with BKT Tires and TradeFaire International and RUD Chains to create the world’s first custom loader tyre.
The rolling circumference of the new tyre was ideal to fit RUD tyre protection chains, reducing the time used to shave the tyres and downtime.
