Backhoe owners and operators can finally experience the durability, comfort and traction of McLaren’s Nu-Air solid cushion tires — now for both front and rear backhoe tires.

Two Nu-Air versions are available for backhoes. The Dirt Terrain (DT) tire excels in off-road applications where aggressive traction and high stability are important. Their deep tread lugs ensure a solid grip on sand, rocks or deep mud. The All Terrain (AT) tire is a good option for mixed-purpose vehicles. The zigzag tread pattern provides a smoother ride with less wear on asphalt, concrete and other hard surfaces, yet still delivers good traction when going off road, according to the manufacturer.

McLaren already manufactured backhoe front tires, and their latest offerings cover the larger rear tires. Backhoes can now be completely fitted with the Nu-Air series tires, which utilize three layers of unique rubber compounds and multiple shock-absorbing relief holes to create a smooth ride and durability. Flat-proof technology eliminates the need for tire protection, while the extra weight of the tires lowers the backhoe’s center of gravity and provides crucial stability on harsh terrain.

With more than a decade of research and development, this product integrates the strength of a solid tire with the smooth, cushioned ride of a pneumatic tire. Featuring a lower cost per hour, the solid cushion Nu-Air tire series has become known as an economically smart alternative to foam-filled or conventional pneumatic tires.

“McLaren’s solid cushion tires have become hugely popular among owners and operators of skid steer loaders, telehandlers, wheel loaders and forklifts, so it was only natural to add backhoe tires in the mix,” said George Zafirov, marketing manager of McLaren Industries. “It makes practical sense, too, given the typical rugged, unforgiving work environment backhoes experience on a regular basis. For instance, they don’t use an axle-mounted suspension and are vulnerable to vibrations from the ground. But because our solid cushion tires lower the center of gravity and reduce equipment bouncing, backhoe safety and performance are significantly improved. Plus, with zero chance to get a flat, Nu-Air Tires are the preferred choice for safely increasing productivity.”
