Backhoe Tires in Lake Station
The backhoe is one of the most dynamic pieces of construction equipment on the job site. One moment you could be moving loads of rock and the next you could be digging a trench. Either way, you need backhoe tires that roll where you roll. Shop Firestone backhoe tires in Lake Station for work-ready, puncture resistant tires. If you work on soft surfaces, put the Radial Duraforce RT Tire on the top of your list. It's designed for traction and stability.

Lake Station Dozer/Loader Tires
Construction sites require all kinds of heavy equipment to complete the job, including loaders and dozers. Loaders and dozers move materials into another piece of equipment, or move materials out of the way. Loader/dozer tires assist these handy machines, with features like deeper tread and steel radial casings 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 Lake Station, and whether you might need scraper tires, too.
Lake Station Scraper Tires
With the right attachments, a loader can pull double-duty as a scraper. Scrapers come in all sizes and configurations. Some are self-loading, with an elevator for loading stuff. Others have an attachment that allows two scrapers to act as a self-loading system, which leads to exceptional efficiency. These are just two of many loader-scraper configurations. Whether the setup is complicated or simple, a scraper's job it typically to transport a load to a dumping area. 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 Lake Station to support your scraper configuration.
Lake Station Skid Steer Tires
A skid-steer loader, or skid loader, is similar to a scraper, only smaller. It's used for digging and can be equipped to lift, pull, or push material. Skid steer loaders are lighter and more maneuverable than tractor front loaders, and they require comparably versatile tires.

Container Handler Tires in Lake Station
Container handler tires are designed for less dynamic, though equally important equipment, like forklifts, straddle carriers, and stack reachers. This type of equipment is always on the go! Depending on the environment and workload, you might prefer a container handler tire with extra wide tread for traction and payload stability, but minimal 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. Whatever the conditions or load, you can be sure that our selection of crane and container handler tires in Lake Station is ready to work. Plus, all of our tires must be tested before they head to our dealers. And they are, at a 350-acre Firestone facility committed to construction tire engineering and testing.
Lake Station Straddle Carrier Tires
Container handlers aren't the only type of equipment that deal with containers. Straddle carriers do too, but a little differently. A straddle carrier is used in rail yards and port terminals to move and stack containers. Instead of carrying containers like a truck would, a straddle carrier picks up the container and carries it from underneath. Straddle carriers eliminate the need for forklifts and cranes. They're not road-going pieces of equipment, but straddle carriers still need to be able to overcome abrasive surroundings and constant fluctuations in load size. Every Firestone straddle carrier tire for sale in Lake Station is field-tested to [content-text-9-8] Each Firestone straddle carrier tire for sale in Lake Station is tested to ensure outstanding cut protection and wear resistance.
