The need for a chain-ready underground tyre

Tradefaire International and Macmahon recognised issues with traditional OTR mining tyres that required an innovative new design. These new chain-ready tyres address issues that have plagued the industry for many years.

Businesses no longer need to pay full price for OTR tyres only to buff down the tread to fit machinery. These specially manufactured chain-ready tyres are designed with adequate spacing for the chain, ensuring the tyres fit onto the equipment without requiring modifications. 

The costs associated with fitting chains to tyres, not to mention the downtime this causes businesses, drove Tradefaire International and BKT Tyres to create a much-needed chain-ready underground tyre solution.

The benefits of chain-ready OTR tyres

Smaller tyre design

The smaller design OTR mining tyres are more cost-effective to manufacture and these savings are passed on to customers, reducing operational costs.

Remove the need for buffing

Expenses are also reduced by removing the need for buffing. The new Tradefaire International and BKT Tyres chain-ready OTR tyres are manufactured to fit machinery without buffing down necessary tread.  

Minimise downtime

These tyres have effectively minimised the downtime required during tyre buffing. Simply install the chain to your mining tyres and continue production.

Reduce waste 

By removing the need to buff tyres, you will also reduce the environmental waste produced by your business. This change will positively impact the planet for the years to come.
