GRI has launched a new radial tire, the Grip XLR MP55, designed for heavy-duty backhoe loaders, compact loaders and telehandler applications.
Its extra-wide lugs provide grip and greater stability, while its tread compound ensures resistance against wear and cuts, the company says. Its new tie bar design increases tire life and allows for longer working hours.
The tire’s inter lug design features three steps in the lug at the centerline that prevents center lug cracks when taking on heavy loads and also enables higher traction for better productivity, GRI says. The tire has unmatched puncture resistance and durability that results in less downtime.
The Grip XLR MP55 is currently available in size 19.5L R24, with more sizes to be released soon. The tire range, available for loader applications, also includes the Grip EX LT100 in size 12.5/80-18, Grip EX LT122 in size 14.9-24, Grip EX LT200 in size 15.5-25 and the Grip EX LT300 in size 9.00-16. Specifically designed for telehandler applications is the Grip EX TL200 in size 15.5/80-24.
“We recognize that construction machinery is getting more powerful, as builders strive for more productivity to effectively build for future generations, the Grip XLR MP55 will provide utmost dependability in performance, thus ensuring we actively support the construction and industrial industries,” says Dr. Mahesha Ranasoma, CEO of GRI.
