Rigid Dump / Dumper Truck Tyres

Rigid Dump / Dumper Truck Tyres

Rigid dump trucks, also known as dumpers, are heavy-duty vehicles used for hauling bulk materials in mining, construction, and quarrying operations. These trucks rely on specialized tyres designed to handle the demanding conditions and heavy loads they encounter. Dumper tyres are engineered to provide exceptional durability, traction, and load-carrying capacity. Apollo's dumper tyres feature robust construction, deep tread patterns, and cut-resistant compounds to withstand rough terrains and resist punctures. Apollo's dumper tyres are available in common specifications, such as 27.00R49, 33.00R51, or 40.00R57, and ensure stability and enhanced flotation.

Heavy Duty Compactor and Roller Tyres

Heavy Duty Compactor and Roller Tyres

Heavy-duty compactors and rollers are essential equipment used in road construction, soil compaction, and landfill operations. These machines require specialized tyres to effectively carry out their tasks. Compactor and roller tyres need to provide excellent traction, durability, and stability to ensure efficient compaction and smooth operation. Apollo Tyres offers a range of compactor tyres, such as the ARC 317 and ASR 624, specifically designed to meet the demanding requirements of heavy-duty compactors and rollers. These tyres are built to deliver superior performance, long-lasting durability, and maximum productivity in compaction applications.

OTR Radial and Bias Earthmoving Tyres

bias ply and radial otr earthmoving tyres

There are two primary types of OTR tires: Radial and Bias.

Radial OTR Tires:

  • Radial OTR tires are constructed with radial ply layers, where the internal ply cords run radially from the center of the tire to the outer edges at a 90-degree angle.
  • The radial construction provides several benefits, including improved stability, better traction, and reduced rolling resistance, resulting in increased fuel efficiency and longer tire life.
  • These tires offer a smoother ride and better heat dissipation, making them suitable for high-speed and long-distance applications.
  • Radial OTR tires are commonly used in various earthmoving equipment, including loaders, articulated dump trucks, and motor graders.

Bias OTR Tires:

  • Bias OTR tires are constructed with bias ply layers, where the internal ply cords crisscross at an angle to the tire's centerline.
  • These tires are more robust and less susceptible to damage from impacts, making them suitable for rough and challenging terrains.
  • Bias OTR tires are generally more cost-effective than radial tires, making them a popular choice for certain applications.
  • They are commonly used in heavy-duty equipment like bulldozers, scrapers, and rigid dump trucks, where their robust construction can handle the demanding conditions.



OTR Earthmover Tyre Specifications

The specifications of OTR (Off-the-Road) earthmover tyres can vary depending on the specific tyre model, manufacturer, and intended application. Here are some general specifications you may find for OTR earthmover tyres:

  • Tyre Size: OTR tyres come in various sizes, such as 29.5R25, 35/65R33, 45/65R45, 33.00R51, etc. The size denotes the tyre's diameter, width, and rim diameter.
  • Load Capacity: OTR tyres have different load capacities, typically specified in pounds or kilograms. The load capacity indicates the maximum weight the tyre can safely support under recommended operating conditions.
  • Tread Pattern: OTR tyres feature specific tread patterns designed for different terrains and applications, such as rock lug, E4 deep tread, L5 block, E3 rock, etc. The tread pattern affects traction, self-cleaning properties, and performance characteristics.
  • Ply Rating: The ply rating indicates the strength and durability of the tyre's construction. It represents the number of fabric layers or plies used in the tyre's construction, which affects load-carrying capacity and resistance to cuts and impacts.
  • Speed Rating: Some OTR tyres may have speed ratings indicating the maximum safe speed at which the tyre can operate. Speed ratings are designated by letters like A, B, C, etc., with each letter corresponding to a specific speed range.
  • Manufacturer: OTR earthmover tyres are produced by various manufacturers, including Apollo Tyres. Each manufacturer may have their own range of tyre models with specific specifications. It is essential to refer to the manufacturer's documentation or consult with authorized tyre dealers to obtain accurate and detailed information regarding the specifications of specific OTR earthmover tyre models.

How to read OTR tyre size?

Reading an OTR (Off-the-Road) tyre size may seem complex at first, but it follows a standardized format. The OTR tyre size is typically represented by a combination of numbers and letters. Here's a breakdown of how to read the OTR tyre size:

  • Overall Diameter: The first number in the size indicates the overall diameter of the tyre in inches. For example, "29.5" means the tyre has an overall diameter of 29.5 inches.
  • Section Width: The next number represents the section width of the tyre, which is the widest point across the tyre tread in millimeters. For instance, "R25" indicates a section width of 25 inches.
  • Construction Type: The letter "R" stands for radial construction, while "B" denotes bias construction.
  • Rim Diameter: The final number indicates the rim diameter in inches that the tyre is designed to fit. In the example above, "R25" means the tyre is designed to fit a rim with a 25-inch diameter.

Putting it all together, the OTR tyre size "29.5R25" translates to a radial tyre with an overall diameter of 29.5 inches, a section width of 25 inches, and designed to fit a 25-inch rim.
