Backhoe Tires in Ketchikan
When it comes to construction equipment, you'd be hard pressed to find something more dynamic than the backhoe. One second you could be digging a hole and the next you could be moving loads of rock. When you roll, your backhoe tires need to roll, too. Buy Firestone backhoe tires in Ketchikan for work-ready, puncture resistant tires. For soft surface work, consider a tire that's especially for stability and traction, like our Radial Duraforce RT Tire. It has a radial R-4 direction tread design for heightened traction and grip, plus a larger footprint to reduce soil damage. And for more demanding work situations, there are construction tires like the Industrial Special Backhoe Tire, which features a shock fortified nylon-cord body to resist cuts and punctures. Either way, your Ketchikan Firestone off-the-road dealer can help you select the best backhoe loader tire for your needs.
Dozer & Loader Tires in Ketchikan
Construction sites are full of all types of heavy equipment, including dozers and loaders. Loaders and dozers move materials into another piece of equipment, or move materials out of the way. Loader/dozer tires assist these versatile machines, with features like steel radial casings and deeper tread that help them excel despite varying load sizes and surfaces. Talk to your Firestone construction tire dealer for more information about loader and dozer tires in Ketchikan, and whether you might need scraper tires, too.
Scraper Tires in Ketchikan, AK
With the right attachments, a loader can pull double-duty as a scraper. Scrapers come in all sizes and configurations. Some are self-loading. They use an elevator to load material. Others use an attachment that allows two scrapers to work as a self-loading team, which is one of the most efficient systems. But there are many other scraper-loader configurations. No matter the configuration, a scraper usually has to perform one job and do it well: it must move its load to a dumping area. Contrary to rigid dump trucks, scrapers only have to transport their loads a short distance. They're best for short hauls. Firestone has a catalog of scraper tires in Ketchikan to support your scraper configuration.
Ketchikan Skid Steer Tires
A skid loader, or skid-steer loader, can look similar to a scraper but is more compact. It's used for digging and can be equipped to lift, pull, or push material. Skid steer loaders are more maneuverable and lighter than tractor front loaders, and they require comparably versatile tires. Firestone skid steer tire options in Ketchikan include tires like the Duraforce DT Skid Steer Tire, with a deep tread and cut resistance to boost work in tough terrain. Contact your off-the-road tire dealer in Ketchikan for help buying the right skid steer tires for your special equipment.

Container Handler Tires for Sale in Ketchikan
Container handler tires are meant for less flexible, but equally as functional equipment, like straddle carriers, stack reachers, and forklifts. Essentially, equipment that rarely stops stacking, carrying, and moving. Depending on the workload and environment, you might prefer a container handler tire with extra wide tread for traction and payload stability, but minimal speed capabilities. But if your job requires plenty of materials to be moved—and fast—then you'll want to consider a radial tire with a focus on high speeds. Whatever the conditions or load, you can be sure that our inventory of crane and container handler tires in Ketchikan is ready to work. All tires are tested before they can even be considered for placement on any piece of container handling equipment. And they are, at a 350-acre Firestone facility committed to construction tire engineering and testing.
Straddle Carrier Tires in Ketchikan
Like traditional container handlers, straddle carriers also move containers. They just do so a little differently. A straddle carrier mostly works around ports and rail yards to load, unload, and stack containers. Instead of carrying containers like a truck would, a straddle carrier picks up the container and carries it from underneath. There's no need for cranes and forklifts when you have straddle carriers. Even though straddle carriers aren't road-going vehicles, they still need to be able to handle challenges like constant changes in load weight and abrasive surroundings. All Firestone straddle carrier tires for sale in Ketchikan are tested to assure excellent wear resistance and cut protection.
Rigid Dump Truck Tires in Ketchikan
Dump truck tires support equipment that moves piles of heavy stuff, as opposed to containers of stuff.

You can choose from a couple of Firestone rigid dump truck tires in Ketchikan, like the Super Rock Grip bias tire Super Rock Grip Deep Tread bias tire.
