    Straddle Carrier Tires

Straddle Carrier Tires

Handling loads up to 25 meters high, straddle carriers perform under considerable pressure. To guarantee safety and efficiency, equipping them with the right tires is crucial. Magna Tyres’ straddle carrier tires deliver unmatched traction, even under the most strenuous conditions.

Functionality of Straddle Carriers

Straddle carriers stand out for their versatility, catering to a broad range of applications within terminal operations. Capable of speeds up to 30 kph while securely carrying heavy loads high above, these machines adeptly pick up and stack containers, sometimes four levels deep. A notable challenge is their tendency to sway during abrupt stops, a phenomenon attributed to the ‘slip-stick’ effect, which temporarily reduces tire-ground contact, demanding exceptional traction to manage any uncontrolled movements.

Straddle Carrier Benefits

A significant benefit of straddle carriers is their autonomous operation in lifting and moving containers without needing cranes, forklifts, or other equipment. The carrier’s lift mechanism, controlled directly from the cab, streamlines operations, emphasizing the importance of tires that provide optimal comfort and stability during use.

Straddle Carrier Tire Innovation

Magna Tyres has tailored its straddle carrier tires specifically for the demands of port and terminal environments. Featuring a unique crown design and robust sidewalls, these tires achieve superior traction. The all-steel radial construction also enhances shock absorption, ensuring peak performance.
