Backhoe Tires in Effingham

You need backhoe tires that go where you go. Buy Firestone backhoe tires in Effingham for work-ready, puncture resistant tires.

Dozer & Loader Tires in Effingham
Construction sites are full of all types of heavy equipment, including dozers and loaders. Dozers and loaders push things aside or put stuff into another piece of equipment, like a railroad car or dump truck. Loader/dozer tires assist these handy 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 Effingham, and whether you might need scraper tires, too.
Effingham Scraper Tires
When properly equipped, a loader can also act as a scraper. Scrapers are made in all configurations and sizes. Some are self-loading and use an elevator to load material. Others have an attachment that allows two scrapers to act as a self-loading system, which leads to exceptional efficiency. These are two loader-scraper configurations. There are many more! Regardless of the setup, a scraper's job is generally to move its load to an area where the load is dumped. Contrary to rigid dump trucks, scrapers only have to transport their loads a short distance. They're most efficient on short hauls. Firestone has a catalog of scraper tires in Effingham to support your scraper configuration.
Skid Steer Tires in Effingham, IL
A skid loader, or skid-steer loader, can look similar to a scraper but is more compact. It's primarily used for digging and can be outfitted to lift, push, and pull material. Skid steer loaders are more maneuverable and lighter than tractor front loaders, and they require comparably versatile tires. Firestone's selection of skid steer tires in Effingham includes tires like the [content-text-6-6] Firestone's catalog of skid steer tires in Effingham includes tires like the Duraforce DT Skid Steer Tire, with a deep tread and cut resistance to boost work in tough terrain.

Container Handler Tires in Effingham
Container handler tires are made for less versatile, but equally as functional equipment, like straddle carriers, stack reachers, and forklifts. In other words, equipment that never stops moving, stacking, and carrying. Depending on the environment and workload, you could opt for a container handler tire with wider tread for superior traction and payload balance, but limited speed capabilities. But if your application requires that you move plenty of materials (and fast), you'll probably need a radial tire that prioritizes high speed. No matter the load or conditions, you can bet that our selection of container handler and crane tires in Effingham is ready to get your job done right. Plus, all of our tires must be tested before they head to our dealers. And they are, at our Center for Research & Technology and the Texas Proving Grounds.
Straddle Carrier Tires in Effingham
Straddle carriers also handle containers, but differently than traditional container handlers. A straddle carrier mostly works in port terminals and rail yards to stack and move 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. Straddle carriers might not be road-going machines, but they still need to be able to deal with abrasive surroundings and ever-changing load weights. All Firestone straddle carrier tires for sale in Effingham are tested to ensure excellent wear resistance and cut protection.
Rigid Dump Truck Tires in Effingham, IL
Compared to container handler tires, dump truck tires help equipment that moves piles of heavy stuff in tough environments instead of containers of stuff. Dump trucks carry rocks, broken cement, sand, dirt, and any debris that needs to be moved in preparation for a job. They typically move lots of heavy materials at steel mills, quarries, salt mines, and surface mines— all sites where construction tires can be damaged without notice. That's one good reason rigid dump trucks require tires that go beyond your everyday commercial tire. They need tires that can provide long traction and wear, and resist cuts and heat. You can compare a few different rigid dump truck tires in Effingham, like the Super Rock Grip Tire or the Super Rock Grip Deep Tread Tire.
