Mitas presented the newest addition to its family of ERL-30 earth-moving tyres at the INTERMAT fair in Paris in April 2015. The new Mitas 29.5R25 ERL-30 tyre is available for worldwide sales since early in June 2015. ERL tyres are used on loaders, dozers and graders in mining operations. The all-steel radial construction of Mitas 29.5R25 ERL-30 tyre is particularly designed for large wheel loaders such as Liebherr L 586 and Caterpillar 980. The Mitas ERL series features 12 various tyres of 28 to 90 mm tread depth. The Mitas 26.5R25 193B ERD-40 have been tested at JSC "Tuchkovsky KSM" in Russia on dump truck Volvo – A35D since May 2012. The tyres are in good condition after more than 11,000 operating hours to continue in the test.
The ERL-30 tread pattern is particularly resistant to wear. ERL-30 is designed for mixed conditions of soft and hard terrain. The whole ERL/ERD line is radial with a steel-enforced carcass and steel breakers. ERL/ERD tyres support retreading. This set of earth-mover tyres responds to various off-road surfaces by changes in tread design and functionality. Mitas ERL tyres fit on loader and grader machinery, and ERD tyres are intended for transport vehicles. These include wheel loaders, dozers and graders, dumpers (incl. articulated) and scrapers.
