Dig, Move, Work: Knox Backhoe Tires
When it comes to construction equipment, you'd be hard pressed to find something more dynamic than the backhoe. You could be digging a hole in the morning, then moving loads of rock in the afternoon. You need backhoe tires that go where you go. Buy Firestone backhoe tires in Knox for puncture resistant, traction-ready, and dependable 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. But for more challenging work circumstances, there are construction tires like the Industrial Special Backhoe Tire, which has a shock stabilized nylon-cord body to protect from punctures and cuts. Either way, your Knox Firestone off-the-road dealer can help you select the best backhoe loader tire for your needs.
Knox 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. Loader/dozer tires assist these handy machines, with features like steel radial casings and deeper tread that help them stand up to ever-changing surfaces and loads. Talk to your Firestone construction tire dealer for more information about loader and dozer tires in Knox, and whether you might need scraper tires, too.
Scraper Tires in Knox, PA
When properly equipped, a loader can also act as a scraper. Scrapers are made in all configurations and sizes. Some are self-loading, with an elevator for loading stuff. But others increase productivity with an attachment that allows two scrapers to work as one self-loading system. But there are many other scraper-loader 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. Unlike rigid dump trucks, scrapers don't have to transport loads very far. They're best for short hauls. Firestone has a catalog of scraper tires in Knox to support your scraper configuration.
Knox Skid Steer Tires
A skid-steer loader, or skid loader, is similar to a scraper, only smaller. It's primarily used for digging and can be outfitted to push, pull, and lift material. Skid steer loaders are lighter and more maneuverable than tractor front loaders, and they require comparably versatile tires. Firestone skid steer tire options in Knox include tires like the Duraforce DT Skid Steer Tire, with cut resistance and a deep tread to support work in rough terrain. Talk to your Knox off-the-road tire dealer for help selecting the best skid steer tires for your multi-use equipment.
Knox Grader Tires
Around the construction site, you might also need grader tires in Knox for either construction, road building, or even 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. Plus self-cleaning tread helps support traction in soft or muddy environments to help work run smoother. Wherever your grader needs to go, you can get there when you ride on Firestone construction tires.
Container Handler Tires in Knox
Container handler tires are made for less versatile, but equally as functional equipment, like forklifts, straddle carriers, and stack reachers. Essentially, equipment that rarely stops stacking, carrying, and moving. 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. 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 Knox is ready to work. Plus, all of our tires must be tested before they head to our dealers. And they are, at our 350-acre facility dedicated to construction tire testing and development.
Straddle Carrier Tires for Sale in Knox
Like traditional container handlers, straddle carriers also move containers. They just do so a little differently. A straddle carrier mostly works around ports and rail yards 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. 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 Knox is field-tested to [content-text-9-8] Each Firestone straddle carrier tire for sale in Knox is tested to assure excellent cut protection and wear resistance.
Rigid Dump Truck Tires in Knox, PA
