Trelleborg tires approved for Cat wheel loaders
July 12, 2018 - The Brawler Solidflex HPS solid tire line, from Trelleborg Wheel Systems, has been selected as the Original Equipment Manufacturer (OEM) solid tire option for Cat medium wheel loaders and small wheel loaders from Caterpillar Inc. Caterpillar is a leading manufacturer of construction and mining equipment, diesel and natural gas engines, industrial gas turbines and diesel-electric locomotives.
“The team at Caterpillar, as well as our other customers, have long understood the value of our Brawler line to their businesses," said Jared Steier, director of OEM/OEA sales in North America for Trelleborg’s industrial and construction tires. "Engineered for extreme environments, Brawler tires provide the optimal total cost of ownership for which Trelleborg is known. Caterpillar’s choice of the Brawler Solidflex HPS tire as its OEM solid tire option on its wheel loaders is right in line with their tradition of providing the best business-driving value to their customers.”
The Brawler HPS Solidflex features elliptical apertures to deliver a comfortable ride, resulting in reduced equipment and operator fatigue. Durable cut resistant rubber compound eliminates downtime caused by tire damage, while deep lug tread design offers three times more wearable rubber than most pneumatic tires.
