Tires for Container Handlers in Blacksburg
Container handler tires are made for less versatile, though equally important equipment, like forklifts, straddle carriers, and stack reachers. 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 job requires plenty of materials to be moved—and fast—then you'll want to consider a radial tire with a focus on high speeds. Whatever the conditions or load, you can be sure that our selection of container handler and crane tires in Blacksburg 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 350-acre facility dedicated to construction tire testing and development.
Straddle Carrier Tires in Blacksburg
Container handlers aren't the only type of equipment that deal with containers. Straddle carriers do too, but a little differently. A straddle carrier mostly works in port terminals and rail yards to load, unload, and stack containers. It picks up and moves the container from underneath, as opposed to carrying it on top like a truck. Straddle carriers do away with the need for cranes and forklifts. Straddle carriers might not be road-going machines, but they still need to be able to deal with abrasive surroundings and ever-changing load weights. All Firestone straddle carrier tires for sale in Blacksburg are tested to assure excellent cut protection and wear resistance.
Rigid Dump Truck Tires in Blacksburg
While container handler tires support machines that move containers of stuff, dump truck tires support trucks that move piles of heavy stuff in hard places. 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 locations where construction tires can quickly get beat up. That's why rigid dump trucks require tires that go beyond your everyday commercial tire. They need tires that can resist heat and cuts, and provide long wear and traction. You can compare a few different rigid dump truck tires in Blacksburg, like the Super Rock Grip Tire or the Super Rock Grip Deep Tread Tire.
