Magna Tyres has announced the launch of its latest addition to the material handling tyre line-up: the 18.00-25 Magna M-Stacker (IND-4). A more advanced tyre for use on reach stackers, empty container handlers and heavy-duty forklifts designed with a focus on improving the efficiency and productivity of cargo operations. The Magna M-Stacker has been developed starting from the already proven MB01 tread design, with the specific operational requirements from its customers. The R&D department in cooperation with leading ports and terminals worldwide have managed to design a tyre that meets the ever-increasing demands of pick and stack equipment.
The new design features additional 3 extra lugs and optimized rubber compound that reduces heat build-up, allowing the tyre to run cooler and also resist heat-induced and abrasive tread wear. Moreover, the deep wide lugs supports easier turning on the spot, by reducing stress in tread blocks. A noticeably wider tread design in combination with an effective adjustment in the shoulder height of the tyre and the optimal carcass design provide an ideal distribution of contact pressure resulting in a more even tread wear, increasing the tyre lifetime. According to the manufacturer this new tyre meet the needs of port operators with an impressive improvement up to 32% in operating hours. The robust strong sidewalls mean a reduction of deflection, improved protection against damage, and a longer service life. In addition, the large-sized tread blocks provide high level of stability when loading and unloading heavy containers.
The new Magna port tyre is available in 2 versions: M-Stacker & M-Stacker+, where the difference is made by the tread depth, 55 vs. 70mm. The 18.00-25 M-Stacker and 18.00-25 M-Stacker+ are now in production and with immediate effect, being offered to the market.
