Miami, FL (PRWEB) September 14, 2010
Duratread announces the launch of a new and greatly expanded range of Port Tires, specifically made for Reach Stackers, RTG’s and Container Handlers.
The new range has been developed to take account of the trend towards larger capacity machines, now being used at an increasing number of ports around the world.
With distinct tread compounds, definitively created and adapted for the rigors encountered in port use, the expanded range means more choice for tire buyers in the areas of logistics and material handling.
The Port Tire range spans a selection of sizes from 12.00-20 E4 tires for empty container handlers to the largest size, 21.00-35 and are made to fit a wide selection of vehicles.
In addition to the new range of tires, Duratread is also offering committed port operators access to its specialized tire management system which empowers them to have more control over their fleet and tire related costs.
A proven, professional tire management system it is implemented in stages or cycles. The system controls and automates tire pressure, tread depth and tire change routines giving vital information to the operator on how to extend tire life reduce fuel costs and improve acceptance rates for tires to be retreaded. The program allows operators to be fully trained in the use of the equipment and software programs, and have full and continual support and service with trained experts.
