- Continental expands ContiEarth range to include a new radial tire
- The LD-Master ensures high traction and durability for loaders with demanding load requirements
- Continental is presenting the new tire at Bauma 2022
Hanover, Germany, September 7, 2022. Smooth ride and long service life despite heavy loads and abrasive surfaces: The new LD-Master L5 Traction radial tire is ready for demanding conditions and is also fitted with tire sensors ex-factory. From October 24 until 30, Continental is presenting the construction tire at Bauma 2022 in Munich, Germany, the world’s leading trade fair for construction machinery, building material machines, mining machines, construction vehicles and construction equipment, thus expanding the ContiEarth range to include the new radial tire, initially in size 35/65 R33.
Construction machines usually operate with heavy payloads and are exposed to a variety of harsh ground conditions, such as rock, gravel or rubble. The LD-Master L5 Traction is specifically designed for loaders operating on abrasive surfaces and in face working jobs where high productivity and assured vehicle uptime are of most importance.
The reinforced 3* carcass satisfies the highest load carrying capacity requirements, even under extensive production cycles. The L5 traction tread pattern protects the carcass and ensures smooth and safe operation on the construction site. The solid tread block design always provides secure traction. The extra deep tread and sidewall protection also make the tire more robust and ensure long-term productivity.
To minimize idle time and ensure serviceability even under harsh conditions, the special tires fitted to construction machinery should be controlled as precisely as possible. The LD-Master L5 Traction is fitted with an integrated tire sensor ex-factory, making monitoring possible in real time. The sensor monitors temperature and tire pressure, assuring at all time the most efficient operation mode for a long tire life.
In addition to the LD-Master L5 Traction, Continental is presenting its EM-Master E3/L3 as 65-series for construction/surface applications and a sneak preview for a new solid skid steer tire.
