What off-the-road Tires Are Available in Lexington?
There are so many off-the-road tires to choose from and no downtime to think about it. Not that you want or need downtime. You just need to get the job done right. Your Lexington Firestone off-the-road tire dealer can help you pick the best off-the-road tires for your environment and application. We understand that it's about more than finding a tire with the correct tread depth and design—price matters, too. What follows is a breakdown of available commercial tires, organized by equipment type.
Dig, Move, Work: Lexington Backhoe Tires
The backhoe is one of the most dynamic pieces of construction equipment on the job site. One moment you could be moving loads of rock and the next you could be digging a trench. You need backhoe tires that go where you go. Shop backhoe tires in Lexington at Firestone and you'll get 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 more challenging work circumstances, 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. Whatever the case, turn to your Lexington Firestone off-the-road dealer for backhoe tires that meet you at your point of need.
Lexington 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 support these handy machines, with features like steel radial casings and deeper tread that help them work with changing loads and surfaces. Contact a Firestone construction tire dealer for loader and dozer tires in Lexington. If you have questions about scraper tires, we can help with that, too.
Lexington Scraper Tires
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. 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 most efficient on short hauls. Firestone has scraper tires in Lexington to match almost any scraper configuration.
Lexington 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, pull, or push 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 Lexington include tires like the Duraforce DT Skid Steer Tire, with cut resistance and a deep tread to support work in rough terrain. Contact your off-the-road tire dealer in Lexington for help buying the right skid steer tires for your special equipment.
Grader Tires in Lexington
Around the construction site, you might also need grader tires in Lexington for either construction, road building, or even snow removal. Whatever the grader application, Firestone has grader tires to match. Our grader tires are made strong, with features like enhanced rubber compounds that allow for wear resistance to cutting and chipping. 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 for Sale in Lexington
Container handler tires are meant for less flexible, though equally important equipment, like stack reachers, forklifts, and straddle carriers. This type of equipment is always on the go! Depending on the exact application and load, you could opt for a container handler tire with wider tread for superior traction and payload balance, but limited 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. Whatever the conditions or load, you can trust that our selection of container handler and crane tires in Lexington is ready to get your job done right. 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 for Sale in Lexington
Straddle carriers also handle containers, but differently than traditional container handlers. A straddle carrier is used in rail yards and port terminals to stack and move containers. It picks up and carries containers from underneath, instead of carrying them 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 Lexington are tested to ensure outstanding wear resistance and cut protection.
Rigid Dump Truck Tires for Sale in Lexington
Compared to container handler tires, dump truck tires help equipment that moves piles of heavy stuff in tough environments instead of containers of stuff. Dump trucks carry broken cement, sand, dirt, rocks, and any debris that needs to find a new home so a job can get done. They often move large volumes of heavy materials at [content-text-10-5] They usually move high volumes of weighty materials at surface mines, quarries, steel mills, and salt mines— all sites where construction tires can be damaged without notice. That's one good reason 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 choose from a couple of Firestone rigid dump truck tires in Lexington, like the Super Rock Grip Deep Tread Tire and Super Rock Grip Tire.
