Here, we'll give you an overview of the variety of heavy-duty tires available for purchase, organized by equipment type.
Dig, Move, Work: Richmond 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. When you roll, your backhoe tires need to roll, too. Buy Firestone backhoe tires in Richmond for work-ready, puncture resistant tires. If you work on soft surfaces, put the Radial Duraforce RT Tire on the top of your list. It's designed for traction and stability. It has a larger footprint to reduce soil compaction and a radial R-4 directional tread design to deliver superior grip and traction. But for harsher working environments, there are construction tires like the Industrial Special Backhoe Tire, which features a shock fortified nylon-cord body to resist cuts and punctures. No matter how dynamic your needs are, your Firestone off-the-road dealer in Richmond has a dynamic backhoe loader tire to match.
Richmond Dozer/Loader Tires
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. 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. Contact a Firestone construction tire dealer for loader and dozer tires in Richmond. If you have questions about scraper tires, we can help with that, too.
Scraper Tires in Richmond, VA
When properly equipped, a loader can also act as a scraper. Scrapers come in all sizes and configurations. Some are self-loading. They use an elevator to load material. 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. Scrapers don't have to carry their loads very far. They do their best work when they don't have to go very far. Firestone has scraper tires in Richmond to match almost any scraper configuration.
Skid Steer Tires in Richmond, VA
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 lighter and more maneuverable than tractor front loaders, and they need tires that are equally as versatile. Firestone skid steer tire options in Richmond include tires like the Duraforce DT Skid Steer Tire, with cut resistance and a deep tread to support work in rough terrain. Call your Richmond off-the-road tire dealer for help picking the best skid steer tires for your application.
Grader Tires in Richmond
You might also need grader tires in Richmond for road building, construction, or snow removal. Firestone can help with the right front and rear motor grader tires for your grader application. Our grader tires are built tough, with features like enhanced rubber compounds that allow for wear resistance to cutting and chipping. And self-cleaning tread allows for slip resistance and excellent traction in wet or soft environments. Wherever your grader needs to go, you can get there when you ride on Firestone construction tires.
Tires for Container Handlers in Richmond
Container handler tires are meant for less flexible, though equally important equipment, like forklifts, straddle carriers, and stack reachers. Essentially, equipment that rarely stops stacking, carrying, and moving. Depending on the exact application and load, you may prefer a container handler tire with super wide tread for payload stability and traction, but limited speed capacity. 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 load or conditions, you can be sure that our inventory of container handler and crane tires in Richmond is ready to deliver. Plus, all of our tires must be tested before they head to our dealers. And they are, at a 350-acre Firestone facility committed to construction tire engineering and testing.
Straddle Carrier Tires in Richmond
Container handlers aren't the only type of equipment that deal with containers. Straddle carriers do too, but a little differently. A straddle carrier is used around ports and rail yards to load, unload, and stack 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. 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 Richmond are tested to assure excellent wear resistance and cut protection.
Rigid Dump Truck Tires for Sale in Richmond
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 really any rubbish that needs to be moved in preparation for a job. They typically move lots of heavy materials at quarries, salt mines, surface mines, and steel mills— 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 resist heat and cuts, and provide long wear and traction. You can compare a few different rigid dump truck tires in Richmond, like the Super Rock Grip bias tire Super Rock Grip Deep Tread bias tire.
