Technology company Continental has recently introduced two additional EM-Master E4/L4 radial tyre sizes to the local market for commercial use.
According to the company’s product line manager for commercial speciality tires, the new additions complete the range of radial tyres for use on wheel loaders and dump trucks, in particular for construction work and mining.
He also indicated that the company was collaborating intensively with its customers to expand its portfolio further to meet customers’ needs and requirements.
The EM-Master is part of the ContiEarth portfolio, which was developed specifically for the construction sector. The tyre is ideally suited for articulated dump trucks (ADTs), loaders and dozers and is available in two versions, the EM-Master E3/L3 and the EM-Master E4/L4.
The EM-Master E3/L3 has a normal tread depth and wide spacing between the blocks. It makes a good choice of tire on soft ground.
In comparison to the EM-Master E3/L3, the EM-Master E4/L4 is ideally suited for hard and stony ground as a result of a greater block size with less spacing between the blocks and a deeper tread depth.
The RDT-Master is also part of the ContiEarth series and was developed for rigid dump trucks (RDTs). Owing to its special deep tread design, the tyre offers high resilience, cut resistance and self-cleaning properties.
The DumperMaster rounds out the radial tyre product range. The tyre has an all-steel radial carcass, which ensures high load capacity with low heat build-up. It makes it ideally suited for transporting ore onto the conveyor belt or directly from mines to the surface on dump trucks. Also, the tyre is well-suited for tunnel construction.
Regarding available sizes for the RDT-Master, the available products are the 18.00R33, 21.00R33 and 24.00R35. For the EM-Master E3/L, there is the 20.5R25, 23.5.R25 and 26.5R25. For the EM-Master E4/L4, there is the 23.5.R25, the 26.5R25 and 29.5R25. Lastly, for the DumperMaster, there is the 26.5R25, 29.5R25 and 35/65R33.
