Here, we'll give you an overview of the variety of heavy-duty tires available for purchase, organized by equipment type.
Dig, Move, Work: Kalamazoo Backhoe Tires
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. You need backhoe tires that go where you go. Shop Firestone backhoe tires in Kalamazoo 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 wider footprint to limit soil compaction and a radial R-4 direction tread design for superior grip. 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. No matter how dynamic your needs are, your Firestone off-the-road dealer in Kalamazoo has a dynamic backhoe loader tire to match.
Kalamazoo Dozer/Loader Tires
Construction sites require all kinds of heavy equipment to complete the job, including loaders and dozers. Loaders and dozers move materials aside or into another piece of equipment, like a dump truck or railroad car. Dozer/loader tires help these unique machines, with features like steel radial casings and deeper tread that help them work with changing loads and surfaces. Contact a Firestone construction tire dealer for loader and dozer tires in Kalamazoo. If you have questions about scraper tires, we can help with that, too.
Scraper Tires in Kalamazoo, MI
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. These are just two of many loader-scraper 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 do their best work when they don't have to go very far. Firestone has a catalog of scraper tires in Kalamazoo to support your scraper configuration.
Skid Steer Tires in Kalamazoo, MI
A skid-steer loader, or skid loader, is similar to a scraper, only smaller. It's used for digging and can be equipped to push, pull, and lift 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 Kalamazoo include tires like the Duraforce DT Skid Steer Tire, with a deep tread and cut resistance to boost work in tough terrain. Talk to your Kalamazoo off-the-road tire dealer for help selecting the best skid steer tires for your multi-use equipment.
Grader Tires in Kalamazoo
Around the construction site, you might also need grader tires in Kalamazoo for either construction, road building, or even snow removal. Firestone can help with the right front and rear motor grader tires for your grader application. Our grader tires are built tough, with features like enhanced rubber compounds for heat resistance and excellent traction. They're also built to help your work run more smoothly, thanks to self-cleaning tread that helps support traction in soft or wet environments. It doesn't matter where your grader needs to go. With Firestone construction tires, you can get there.
Container Handler Tires in Kalamazoo
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 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. No matter the load or conditions, you can bet that our supply of container handler and crane tires in Kalamazoo is ready to get your job done right. All tires are tested before they can even be considered for placement on any piece of container handling equipment. And they are, at our 350-acre facility dedicated to construction tire testing and development.
Kalamazoo Straddle Carrier Tires
Straddle carriers also handle containers, but differently than traditional container handlers. A straddle carrier is used in rail yards and port terminals 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. Straddle carriers do away with the need for cranes and forklifts. 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. All Firestone straddle carrier tires for sale in Kalamazoo are tested to assure excellent wear resistance and cut protection.
Rigid Dump Truck Tires in Kalamazoo
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 debris that needs to be moved to prepare an area for a job. They often move large volumes of heavy materials at [content-text-10-5] They usually move high volumes of weighty materials at quarries, salt mines, surface mines, and steel mills— all sites where construction tires can be damaged without notice. That's one good 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. You can compare a few different rigid dump truck tires in Kalamazoo, like the Super Rock Grip Tire or the Super Rock Grip Deep Tread Tire.
