Camso, formerly Camoplast Solideal, continues to strengthen its construction tire portfolio with the launch of two next generation skid steer tires.
Camso engineered these next generation tires based on a deep understanding of the specific needs of end users. They're part of the widest range of skid steer tires in the industry. The Camso SKS 753 provides versatility and optimal durability on mixed and hard surfaces, while the Camso SKS 532 delivers superior traction on soft soil surfaces.
The construction industry has evolved over the years. General jobs have become more specialized and the skid steer's versatility has been able to respond to this reality. As applications become more specialized so should the tires that work in them. “We believe productivity and profitability can be maximized when you choose the right tire for your application,” says Mike Dembe, Product Management Director, North America and Latin America – Construction. “Beyond offering the widest range of tires, OTT and rubber tracks, having the best solution to suit any particular application is what is really driving us.”
Building on past innovations, the Camso SKS 753 and SKS 532 are the fourth and fifth skid steer tire Camso has launched since January 2015. All of which are built with features that increase tire performance and overall durability.
Camso SKS 753 takes versatility and durability to the next level
This bias-ply, pneumatic tire is the perfect tire for rental fleets and other mixed and hard surfaces. Its innovative, non-directional tread pattern optimizes durability and versatility. Its high lug-to-void ratio provides excellent wear and puncture resistance on hard surfaces, while its stepped shoulder lugs improve traction on softer surfaces. The Camso SKS 753 is the next-generation of the well-known Solideal Hauler SKZ and will out-last it by 30 percent.
The Camso SKS 532 delivers superior traction on soft soil
Traction is essential for productivity in soft soils and for digging deeper into the pile. Designed for optimum performance on general-duty, mixed-soft surfaces like Construction and Landscaping applications, the bias-ply Camso SKS 532 improves both traction and durability with its extra-deep directional tread and curved lugs. Its unique stepped tread pattern provides excellent mud clean out and comes with a Void Guard to reinforce and protect the carcass to prevent punctures and minimize flats. The Camso SKS 532 surpasses its predecessor, the Solideal Xtra Wall, with 30 percent longer life.
To protect against sidewall damage, both new tires incorporate Camso's reverse sidewall design with impact guard to deflect objects and debris away from the tire. This feature better protects the product from sidewall damage working to extend its life, and ultimately, contributes to a lower operating cost solution.
Products are currently available for purchase in the North American market and will be available on November 22nd for European, Middle-East and African customers.
