Your nearby Firestone off-the-road tire supplier can help you pick the correct off-the-road tires for your equipment, application, and environment. Tread depth and design are just two factors that matter—we know you care about getting the right priced tire, too. What follows is a breakdown of available commercial tires, organized by equipment type.
Backhoe Loader Tires in Seattle
A backhoe is incredibly versatile. One moment you could be moving loads of rock and the next you could be digging a trench. Either way, you need backhoe tires that roll where you roll. Buy Firestone backhoe tires in Seattle for 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 wider footprint to limit soil compaction and a radial R-4 direction tread design for superior grip. But for more challenging work circumstances, there are construction tires like the Industrial Special Backhoe Tire, which features a shock fortified nylon-cord body to resist cuts and punctures. Whatever the case, turn to your Seattle Firestone off-the-road dealer for backhoe tires that meet you at your point of need.
Seattle Dozer/Loader Tires
Construction sites are full of all types of heavy equipment, including dozers and loaders. Dozers and loaders push things aside or put stuff into another piece of equipment, like a railroad car or dump truck. Loader/dozer tires assist these handy machines, with features like deeper tread and steel radial casings that help them excel despite varying load sizes and surfaces. Talk to your Firestone construction tire dealer for more information about loader and dozer tires in Seattle, and whether you might need scraper tires, too.
Seattle Scraper Tires
When properly equipped, a loader can also act as a scraper. Scrapers come in all sizes and configurations. Some are self-loading and use an elevator to load material. Others have an attachment that allows two scrapers to act as a self-loading system, which leads to exceptional efficiency. 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. 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 Seattle to support your scraper configuration.
Skid Steer Tires in Seattle, WA
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 geared up to lift, pull, or push material. Skid steer loaders are more maneuverable and lighter than tractor front loaders, and they need tires that are equally as versatile. Firestone skid steer tire options in Seattle include tires like the Duraforce DT Skid Steer Tire, with a deep tread and cut resistance to boost work in tough terrain. Call your Seattle off-the-road tire dealer for help picking the best skid steer tires for your application.
Grader Tires in Seattle
Around the construction site, you might also need grader tires in Seattle for either construction, road building, or even snow removal. Firestone can help with the right front and rear motor grader tires for your grader application. Our grader tires are resilient, 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 Seattle
Container handler tires are designed for less dynamic, but equally as functional equipment, like stack reachers, forklifts, and straddle carriers. In other words, equipment that never stops moving, stacking, and carrying. Depending on the exact application and load, you might prefer a container handler tire with extra wide tread for traction and payload stability, but minimal speed capabilities. But if your application requires that you move plenty of materials (and fast), you'll probably need a radial tire that prioritizes high speed. No matter the load or conditions, you can bet that our selection of container handler and crane tires in Seattle 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 a 350-acre Firestone facility committed to construction tire engineering and testing.
Straddle Carrier Tires for Sale in Seattle
Straddle carriers also handle containers, but differently than traditional container handlers. A straddle carrier mostly works around ports and rail yards to load, unload, and stack 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. 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 Seattle are tested to ensure outstanding wear resistance and cut protection.
Rigid Dump Truck Tires for Sale in Seattle
Compared to container handler tires, dump truck tires help equipment that moves piles of heavy stuff in tough environments instead of containers of stuff.
