Solid tyre designed to boost comfort

Trelleborg Wheel Systems has debuted its Brawler HPS Soft Ride, a solid tyre developed specifically for the waste management and recycling industries.

This re-engineered version of the Brawler solid tyre offers improved operator comfort and equipment life through reduced vibration, while retaining the signature Brawler life performance in harsh applications.

Ditri Zweistra, manager for specialty-mining, waste and recycling, said: “We challenged our- selves to create a solid tyre that matches the benchmark for comfort achieved by foam-filled pneumatic tyres but which still performed against all other requirements in this sector.”

The Soft Ride features a new cushion rubber compound that increases deflection and shock absorption. It is combined with the Brawler ultra-cut-resistant tread compound to makes a much less stiff solid tyre.
