Yokohama OHT Releases New 29-In. Loader Radial Size Tire

Yokohama Off-Highway Tire introduced an 875/65R29 size of its rugged Yokohama RT41 L-4 radial for front-end loaders, adding the popular 29-in. size to its RT41 lineup.

Bruce Besancon, vice president of marketing for Yokohama Off-Highway Tires, noted that the new size features the multi-layer belt package with Yokohama’s special, OTR belt wires that add durability, stability and puncture resistance to the RT41. The tire’s buttressed sidewalls reduce snags and cuts, high turn-up carcass construction that minimizes sway, and a hexagonal bead to ensure powerful rim contact. As with the 25-inch versions of the RT41, the non-directional block tread of the new 875/65R29 features Yokohama cut-and-wear-resistant compound for long service life.

Alliance-778-Yokohama-OHT

Yokohama Off-Highway Tires America has released a new design for irrigation tires with a Y-shaped center block for the Alliance 778 irrigation tire. The overlapping Y shapes in the centerline of the zero-degree lug pattern improve both traction and durability compared to traditional lug patterns, Yokohama Off-Highway said.

"You are guaranteed to be operating in wet conditions with an irrigation tire, so you absolutely need great traction," said James Crouch, Yokohama Off-Highway Tires America national segment manager—agriculture and forestry. "But you also want to minimize rutting and make sure every tire on every tower keeps itself clean, no matter which direction the tire is operating in. We completely redesigned the Alliance 778 irrigation tire to meet the very specific needs of farmers under irrigation."
