New earth-moving tires from Mitas

Paris-Nord Villepinte/Prague, 17 April 2012 – Industrial tyre producer Mitas presented a set of new earth-mover tires that extends the family of its ERL/ERD tyre sizes by 30 percent.

“Each off-road surface requires its own specific tread design and functionality,” said Petr Hala, product manager. “Mitas now makes specific tires for machines operating in these demanding conditions, including gravel and rock quarries.” The new ERL/ERD-40 tires feature a large surface area to improve their life. The ERL-50 tread is designed for rocky conditions. “The customer will appreciate the cut resistance of the ERL-50,” Hala adds. All of the ERL/ERD line is radial with a steel-enforced carcass and steel breakers.

“Customers ask for resistance to damage and added value in the tyre life through retreading in quarry tires,” said Andrew Mabin, Mitas’ sales and marketing director. “Mitas has off-road expertise in industrial, agriculture and motorcycle tires.”

The new tires are made in the Czech Republic and are available for sale worldwide. Mitas ERL tires are fit for loader and grader machinery, and ERD tires are for transport vehicles. These include wheel loaders, dozers and graders, dumpers (incl. articulated) and scrapers.

MITAS a.s. is one of Europe’s leading producers of agricultural tires. Mitas manufactures and sells tires under three brand names: the company’s own Mitas and Cultor, and Continental under licence. In addition, Mitas produces and distributes a wide range of Mitas-branded industrial and motorcycle tires. Mitas is a member of ČGS a.s. Holding and operates three production plants in the Czech Republic and one in Serbia, and maintains a global sales and distribution network.
