Bridgestone, located in Hall A6 stand N° 109/206, will present its “Total Tyre Care” programme. The aim behind Total Tyre Care is to help customers keep tight control on tyre-related costs through maximizing the life of their tyres. The programme therefore is built around three tyre management pillars: Total Tyre Life, Total Tyre Services and Total Tyre Systems.Together with its premium products, Bridgestone offers technical tools for tyre-performance monitoring, as well as maximum service quality with the “OTR Elite” label, a European dealer network of certified OTR tyre-specialists.
Along with other product innovations, Bridgestone will be presenting the 20.5 R25 VSDR pattern for the first time, a new premium tyre with extra deep treads for loaders and dozers. The VSDR is the no.1 pattern for working in harsh conditions such as recycling and mining. Compared to its predecessor (the VSDL), the VSDR offers significant improvement in cut resistance and tyre life, resulting in better cost per hour performance.
Bridgestone invites you on its stand for a photo-shoot with the largest OTR radial tyre in the world. With a weight of 5.2 tonnes and an impressive diameter of 4.02 meters, the 59/80R63 VRF will be one of the undisputed trade fair highlight. The VRF is especially recommended for high “Ton-Kilometre per Hour” operations. This outsize model is designed to fit rigid dump trucks up to 400-ton working in coal-and copper mines, and oil sands, all over the world.
