Backhoe Tires in Chesapeake
When it comes to construction equipment, you'd be hard pressed to find something more dynamic than the backhoe. One moment you could be moving loads of rock and the next you could be digging a trench. When you roll, your backhoe tires need to roll, too.

It has a radial R-4 direction tread design for heightened traction and grip, plus a larger footprint to reduce soil damage. But for harsher working environments, 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.

Chesapeake Dozer/Loader Tires

Loader/dozer tires assist these versatile machines, with features like deeper tread and steel radial casings that help them work with changing loads and surfaces. Talk to your Firestone construction tire dealer for more information about loader and dozer tires in Chesapeake, and whether you might need scraper tires, too.
Chesapeake 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, 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. Whether the setup is complicated or simple, a scraper's job it typically to transport a load to a dumping area. Contrary to rigid dump trucks, scrapers only have to transport their loads a short distance. They do their best work when they don't have to go very far. Firestone has scraper tires in Chesapeake to match almost any scraper configuration.

Container Handler Tires in Chesapeake
Container handler tires are designed for less dynamic, though equally important 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 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. No matter the load or conditions, you can trust that our supply of container handler and crane tires in Chesapeake is ready to deliver.

Chesapeake Straddle Carrier Tires
Straddle carriers also handle containers, but differently than traditional container handlers. A straddle carrier works around ports and rail yards to stack and move containers. It picks up and carries containers from underneath, instead of carrying them on top like a truck. There's no need for cranes and forklifts when you have straddle carriers. 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.
