Backhoe Loader Tires in Porter
The backhoe is one of the most dynamic pieces of construction equipment on the job site. One second you could be digging a hole and the next you could be moving loads of rock. You need backhoe tires that go where you go. Buy Firestone backhoe tires in Porter for dependable, puncture resistant, and traction-ready tires. For soft surface work, consider a tire that's especially for stability and traction, like our Radial Duraforce RT Tire. It has a larger footprint to reduce soil compaction and a radial R-4 directional tread design to deliver superior grip and traction. And for more demanding work situations, there are construction tires like the Industrial Special Backhoe Tire, which has a shock stabilized nylon-cord body to protect from punctures and cuts. Whatever the case, turn to your Porter Firestone off-the-road dealer for backhoe tires that meet you at your point of need.
Dozer & Loader Tires in Porter
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 stand up to ever-changing surfaces and loads. Your Firestone construction tire dealer is the place to go for dozer and loader tires in Porter, and to talk scraper tires, too.
Scraper Tires in Porter, IN
When properly equipped, a loader can also act as a scraper. Scrapers come big and small, and in all different configurations. 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. But there are many other scraper-loader configurations. 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 Porter to support your scraper configuration.
Porter 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 geared up to lift, pull, or push material. Skid steer loaders are lighter and more maneuverable than tractor front loaders, and they need tires that are equally as versatile. Firestone's selection of skid steer tires in Porter includes tires like the [content-text-6-6] Firestone's catalog of skid steer tires in Porter includes tires like the Duraforce DT Skid Steer Tire, with cut resistance and a deep tread to support work in rough terrain.

Container Handler Tires in Porter
Container handler tires are designed for less dynamic, though equally important equipment, like stack reachers, forklifts, and straddle carriers. In other words, equipment that never stops moving, stacking, and carrying. Depending on the workload and environment, you could opt for a container handler tire with wider tread for superior traction and payload balance, but limited speed capabilities. For applications that require plenty of materials to be moved quickly, though, you'll probably want to look a radial tire that can accommodate high speeds. Whatever the conditions or load, you can bet that our selection of container handler and crane tires in Porter is ready to deliver. All tires are tested before they can even be considered for placement on any piece of container handling equipment. And they are, at our Center for Research & Technology and the Texas Proving Grounds.
Straddle Carrier Tires in Porter
Container handlers aren't the only type of equipment that deal with containers. Straddle carriers do too, but a little differently. A straddle carrier works around ports and rail yards to stack and move containers. It picks up and carries containers from underneath, instead of carrying them on top like a truck. There's no need for cranes and forklifts when you have straddle carriers. 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 Porter is field-tested to [content-text-9-8] Each Firestone straddle carrier tire for sale in Porter is tested to assure excellent cut protection and wear resistance.
Rigid Dump Truck Tires for Sale in Porter
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 broken cement, sand, dirt, rocks, and any other junk that needs to be moved to prepare an area for a job. They typically move lots of heavy materials at quarries, salt mines, surface mines, and steel mills— all sites where construction tires can be damaged without notice. That's one reason rigid dump trucks need tires that can do more than your average commercial tire. They need tires that perform well despite high temperatures, and offer long wear and traction day after day. The Firestone inventory of rigid dump truck tires in Porter includes stand-out performers, like the Super Rock Grip bias tire Super Rock Grip Deep Tread bias tire.
