Dig, Move, Work: Rutledge Backhoe Tires

Either way, you need backhoe tires that roll where you roll. Buy Firestone backhoe tires in Rutledge 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 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.

Loader & Dozer Tires in Rutledge
Dozers and loaders are often critical to a construction site operation. Dozers and loaders push things aside or put stuff into another piece of equipment, like a railroad car or dump truck. Loader/dozer tires support these versatile 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 Rutledge, and whether you might need scraper tires, too.
Rutledge 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. But others increase productivity with an attachment that allows two scrapers to work as one self-loading system. These are just two of many loader-scraper configurations. Regardless of the setup, a scraper's job is generally to move its load to an area where the load is dumped. Contrary to rigid dump trucks, scrapers only have to transport their loads a short distance. They're most efficient on short hauls. Firestone has a variety of scraper tires in Rutledge to meet the needs of a range of scraper configurations. Yours included.
Skid Steer Tires in Rutledge, TN
A skid-steer loader, or skid loader, is similar to a scraper, only smaller. It's used for digging and can be equipped to push, pull, and lift material. Skid steer loaders are lighter and more maneuverable than tractor front loaders, and they need equally as versatile tires. Firestone's selection of skid steer tires in Rutledge includes tires like the [content-text-6-6] Firestone's catalog of skid steer tires in Rutledge includes tires like the Duraforce DT Skid Steer Tire, with cut resistance and a deep tread to support work in rough terrain.

Rutledge Grader Tires

Tires for Container Handlers in Rutledge
Container handler tires are made for less versatile, though equally important equipment, like stack reachers, forklifts, and straddle carriers. This type of equipment is always on the go! 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. For applications that require plenty of materials to be moved quickly, though, you'll probably want to look a radial tire that can accommodate high speeds. Whatever the load or conditions, you can be sure that our supply of container handler and crane tires in Rutledge 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 Center for Research & Technology and the Texas Proving Grounds.
Straddle Carrier Tires in Rutledge
Straddle carriers also handle containers, but differently than traditional container handlers. A straddle carrier is used around ports 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 Rutledge are tested to ensure excellent wear resistance and cut protection.
Rigid Dump Truck Tires in Rutledge
Dump truck tires support equipment that moves piles of heavy stuff, as opposed to 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 typically move lots of heavy materials at surface mines, quarries, steel mills, and salt mines— all places where construction tires can easily be damaged. That's one reason rigid dump trucks need tires that can do more than your average commercial tire. They need tires that can provide long traction and wear, and resist cuts and heat. The Firestone inventory of rigid dump truck tires in Rutledge includes stand-out performers, like the Super Rock Grip bias tire Super Rock Grip Deep Tread bias tire.
