Dig, Move, Work: The Dalles 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. When you roll, your backhoe tires need to roll, too. Shop Firestone backhoe tires in The Dalles for work-ready, puncture resistant tires. For working on softer surfaces, you might choose a tire that focuses on traction and stability, like the 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. But for harsher working environments, there are heavy-duty construction tires like the Industrial Special Backhoe Tire. It has a shock fortified nylon-cord body to safeguard against cuts punctures.

Talk to your Firestone construction tire dealer for more information about loader and dozer tires in The Dalles, and whether you might need scraper tires, too.
Scraper Tires in The Dalles, OR
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 just two of many loader-scraper 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 best for short hauls. Firestone has a catalog of scraper tires in The Dalles to support your scraper configuration.
The Dalles Skid Steer Tires

Depending on the exact application and load, you may prefer a container handler tire with super wide tread for payload stability and traction, but limited speed capacity.
