Continental signs collaborative agreement with Caterpillar

Continental and Caterpillar Inc. have signed an agreement to equip Cat Off-Highway-Trucks (model series 770 to 775) with Continental RDT-Master tires in sizes 18.00R33, 21.00R33 and 24.00R35. The agreement also calls for the two companies to collaborate on designing new tires for two other Cat products: Medium Wheel Loaders and Articulated Dump Trucks. Continental is the perfect partner for the construction industry offering a comprehensive product portfolio. Jan Skaletz, Key Account Manager for OTR tires, stated: “We are happy to announce the cooperation with Caterpillar on top of the launch of our new tire lines in the Mining and Construction segment.” Continental’s RDT-Master tires feature all-steel radial casings and belt packages for cut and impact resistance that provide outstanding traction in all directions. They will be listed on Caterpillar price lists starting in 2017 and can be specified by Caterpillar dealers and end users as first fit tires on new equipment orders.
