Magna Tyres has launched the new Magna M-Rigid - the radial constructed 27.00R49 / 33.00R51 / 40.00R57 earthmover with an E4 tread pattern - designed for rigid dump trucks (RDTs) that operate in demanding off-road conditions.

The Magna M-Rigid has massive rigid lug blocks that offer the traction and durability required in the most severe surface mines. The tread pattern design has four major innovations: (1) weight reducing cut outs on the tread blocks and lugs, to reduce heat build-up and improve tyre life; (2) circumferential groove in the tread pattern to improve steering control for enhanced heavy-load cornering performance and improved heat dissipation; (3) interlocking shoulder blocks to reduce excessive movement during cornering, to reduce heat build-up, and to enhance operator comfort and tyre life; and (4) optimized contact patch ensures even wear and improves tread life.

The M-Rigid is suitable for modern RDT’s such as Caterpillar, Komatsu, Terex and Hitachi, and will be available from May 2019.
