BKT LAUNCHES SPECIAL TYRES FOR FORKLIFTS
Balkrishna Industries Ltd. (BKT) has launched two new sizes specifically designed for forklifts in its Maglift range of tyres - the Maglift Eco and Maglift Premium.
The Maglift Eco is made with two layers of rubber compound and has a special shape and very wide lugs to guarantee outstanding stability and excellent load distribution. Among its distinctive features there is also the particular rim guard designed to protect it against damage and denting. Low rolling resistance and high resistance to overheating guarantee maximum efficiency. Completing the picture are the steel wires incorporated into the hitch which offer very secure grip and prevent any risk of slippage. There are two versions available, standard and ‘LIP’ i.e. with an asymmetric hitch to avoid having to add flanges.
The Maglift Premium has instead been designed for forklifts used for the toughest operations and comes with an extra deep tread to guarantee a long life cycle. The design of the tread is both robust and aggressive, enabling operators to count on excellent steering control and great forward and lateral traction. The central grooving of the tread ensures low rolling resistance. The tyre is available in both standard and ‘LIP’ versions.
Besides the two new models, new sizes are planned for these forklifts, including the non-marking compound which leaves no trace.
The non-marking version of the Maglift ensures that flooring is left perfectly clean. It is specifically suited to logistical and production facilities in the food and pharmaceutical sectors the where maximum hygiene is necessary, but where all the other key characteristics of Maglift are also needed.
