Mobile cranes perform various tasks in the industrial, construction and infrastructure fields. They can usually travel at high speeds and reach 80 km/h.

It is important for mobile crane tires to work at lower temperatures, making radial products ideal.

The tires must be suitable for applications on both roads and highways and on the more aggressive and uneven terrain of worksites.

BKT tires for mobile cranes are designed and built specifically to face the challenges of demanding jobs, when heavy loads are being transported on a range of surfaces.

To obtain high performance in terms of productivity and safety, BKT has developed products which provide stability during pick-up and transport.

As well, all the tires in the specific BKT ranges for mobile cranes are equipped with a robust structure in steel and particularly cut-resistant compounds to guarantee long duration. The structure is, of course, suitable for high speed during movements on roads and motorways.

Currently BKT offers two different product lines dedicated to mobile cranes, even if the portfolio is particularly wide and aimed at other types of cranes and industrial or construction machinery.  Both the ranges are radial and classified with the speed indices E and F.

The AiroMax AM 27 is suitable for movements on roads and highways that require high resistance to wear and tear, while maintaining excellent traction and resistance on aggressive and uneven terrain.

It has been made with a casing and belts in steel layers to guarantee robustness and resistance.

The AiroMax AM 543 is suitable for cranes used in the construction sector, thanks to its and stability.

The deep and knobby tread guarantees performance on rough terrain, ensuring protection to the tire structure. Given it is subject to extreme conditions, the tire has been designed to resist severe stress, a fundamental characteristic for this type of machinery and application.
