With the introduction of the mining tires, Continental Specialty Tires follows the customized solution approach. This means, every tire line was developed for an individual vehicle type and therefore takes into consideration the requirements of each machine. That’s why Continental chooses different tire construction types to address the specific demands of the applications. Some products are coming with the proven V.ply design with high carcass strength and robustness, while other tires offer a full steel radial construction that delivers outstanding load capability even on longer transport distances in underground mines.
Engineered for ADTs (Articulated Dump Trucks) or heavy loaders operating under challenging conditions in construction or mining applications. High load carrying capacity as well as the robustness of the tread and carcass are key criteria for the right tire choice. Continental’s DumperMaster is customized for these specific demands and comes with a four star carcass design and cut resistant tread compound to master the application.
Continental’s ScoopMaster was developed for loaders and scoops operating in the extremely harsh underground mining environment. Premium quality tread and sidewall rubber compounds provide maximum resistance to rock cutting, penetrations, and tearing.
With its V.ply construction, the Continental DrillMaster is ideal for drill rigs, scalers, bolters and other service vehicles demanding a highly cut-resistant carcass to protect the tire from freshly blasted rocks.
