Dig, Move, Work: Du Bois Backhoe Tires
A backhoe is incredibly versatile. One second you could be digging a hole and the next you could be moving loads of rock. Either way, you need backhoe tires that roll where you roll. Shop Firestone backhoe tires in Du Bois for puncture resistant, traction-ready, and dependable 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 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. Either way, your Du Bois Firestone off-the-road dealer can help you select the best backhoe loader tire for your needs.
Du Bois Dozer/Loader Tires
Construction sites are full of all types of heavy equipment, including dozers and loaders. Loaders and dozers move materials into another piece of equipment, or move materials out of the way. Dozer/loader tires help these unique machines, with features like deeper tread and steel radial casings that help them work with changing loads and surfaces. Contact a Firestone construction tire dealer for loader and dozer tires in Du Bois. If you have questions about scraper tires, we can help with that, too.
Du Bois Scraper Tires
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. They use an elevator to load material. Others use an attachment that allows two scrapers to work as a self-loading team, which is one of the most efficient systems. But there are many other scraper-loader configurations. Whether the setup is complicated or simple, a scraper's job it typically to transport a load to a dumping area. Scrapers don't have to carry their loads very far. They're most efficient on short hauls. Firestone has a catalog of scraper tires in Du Bois to support your scraper configuration.
Du Bois Skid Steer Tires
It can be easy to confuse skid loaders/skid-steer loaders with scrapers if you don't know what you're looking at. A skid loader is more compact. It's used for digging and can be equipped to lift, push, and pull material. Skid steer loaders are more maneuverable and lighter than tractor front loaders, and they need equally as versatile tires. Firestone skid steer tire options in Du Bois include tires like the Duraforce DT Skid Steer Tire, with cut resistance for demanding conditions. Contact your off-the-road tire dealer in Du Bois for help buying the right skid steer tires for your special equipment.
Grader Tires in Du Bois
You might also need grader tires in Du Bois for road building, construction, or snow removal. Whatever the grader application, Firestone has grader tires to match. 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 for Sale in Du Bois
Container handler tires are meant for less flexible, though equally important equipment, like straddle carriers, stack reachers, and forklifts. In other words, equipment that never stops moving, stacking, and carrying. Depending on the workload and environment, you may prefer a container handler tire with super wide tread for payload stability and traction, but limited speed capacity. 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 load or conditions, you can bet that our inventory of crane and container handler tires in Du Bois is ready to work. 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.
Straddle Carrier Tires in Du Bois
Like traditional container handlers, straddle carriers also move containers. They just do so a little differently. A straddle carrier is used 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. 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 Du Bois are tested to assure excellent cut protection and wear resistance.
