In an exciting development that once again validates the advanced engineering and robust construction of Maxam tyres, Caterpillar Inc has approved the 875/65R29 Maxam MS405 L4 tyre for use on specific Cat® 982M medium wheel loaders.
The addition of the MS405 to the Maxam tyres already approved by the renowned global mining and construction equipment manufacturer as OEMs, furthers Maxam’s strong relationship with Cat®.
According to Troy Kline, President at Maxam Tyre North America, “the MS405 was designed to thrive under extreme and rugged conditions, exceed expectations and deliver value”.
Engineered for high torque and harsh applications where extreme traction is required, the MS405 “65 Series program” features a deep E4/L4 lug pattern that combines excellent grip, stability and performance, providing users with a solution that meets harsh demands. Developed with a cut-resistant tread compound and deep undertread, the puncture-resistant MS405 allows superior productivity and minimal downtime. Deliberately designed to minimise vibration at haul speeds, the MS405 is also designed to provide lowest cost per hour for loaders, graders and earthmovers.
Maxam currently supplies the 23.5R25 MS302 as a factory fitment option on Cat® 950GC, 950L, 950M, 962L, and 962M in certain regions. Maxam MS302 tyre sizes have also been validated and approved for future factory fitment on additional Cat® medium wheel loaders.
