Backhoe Loader Tires in Columbia

But for more challenging work circumstances, there are construction tires like the Industrial Special Backhoe Tire, which features a shock fortified nylon-cord body to resist cuts and punctures.

Dozer/loader tires help these unique machines, with features like deeper tread and steel radial casings 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 Columbia, and whether you might need scraper tires, too.
Scraper Tires in Columbia, SC
Outfit your loader and it can work also work as a scraper. Scrapers come in all sizes and configurations. Some are self-loading. They use an elevator to load material. 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. Contrary to rigid dump trucks, scrapers only have to transport their loads a short distance. They're most efficient on short hauls. Firestone has scraper tires in Columbia to match almost any scraper configuration.
Columbia Skid Steer Tires
A skid loader, or skid-steer loader, can look similar to a scraper but 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 tires that are equally as versatile.

Container Handler Tires in Columbia
Container handler tires are designed for less dynamic, but equally as functional equipment, like straddle carriers, stack reachers, and forklifts. 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 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. No matter the load or conditions, you can trust that our supply of container handler and crane tires in Columbia is ready to get your job done right. Before they can even be considered for placement on your container handling equipment, they've got to be tested.

Straddle Carrier Tires in Columbia
Like traditional container handlers, straddle carriers also move containers. They just do so a little differently. A straddle carrier mostly works in port terminals and rail yards to stack and move 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. 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 Columbia is field-tested to [content-text-9-8] Each Firestone straddle carrier tire for sale in Columbia is tested to ensure outstanding wear resistance and cut protection.
Rigid Dump Truck Tires for Sale in Columbia
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 rocks, broken cement, sand, dirt, 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 one good reason rigid dump trucks need tires that can do more than your average 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 Columbia, like the Super Rock Grip Tire or the Super Rock Grip Deep Tread Tire.
