Talk to your Firestone construction tire dealer for more information about loader and dozer tires in Austin, and whether you might need scraper tires, too.
Austin Scraper Tires
With the right attachments, a loader can pull double-duty as a scraper. Scrapers are made in all configurations and sizes. Some are self-loading, with an elevator for loading stuff. Others use an attachment that allows two scrapers to work as a self-loading team, which is one of the most efficient systems. 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. Unlike rigid dump trucks, scrapers don't have to transport loads very far. They're most efficient on short hauls. Firestone has a catalog of scraper tires in Austin to support your scraper configuration.
Skid Steer Tires in Austin
A skid loader, or skid-steer loader, can look similar to a scraper but is more compact. It's primarily used for digging and can be outfitted to lift, push, and pull material. Skid steer loaders are more maneuverable and lighter than tractor front loaders, and they need equally as versatile tires.
