BKT launches Maglift Eco and Maglift Premium for forklifts
BKT has added two new tyre models to the Maglift range, which is designed specifically for forklifts. They are the Maglift Eco and the Maglift Premium.
Maglift Eco is made with two layers of rubber compound and has a special shape and very wide lugs to provide high levels of stability and load distribution. Among its distinctive features there is the rim guard designed to protect it from damage and denting. Low rolling resistance and high resistance to overheating help achieve maximum efficiency. The steel wires incorporated into the hitch offer very secure grip and prevent any risk of slippage. There are two versions available, standard and LIP, which has an asymmetric hitch to avoid having to add flanges.
Maglift Premium has been designed for forklifts used for the toughest operations and comes with an extra deep tread for a long life cycle. The design of the tread is both robust and aggressive, enabling operators to count on high levels of steering control and good forward and lateral traction. The central grooving of the tread ensures low rolling resistance. It is also available in both standard and LIP versions.
All the Maglift models are designed to have excellent load distribution, stability, safety and high load capacity, essential characteristics for a forklift tyre where vehicles carry out very intricate manoeuvres to move heavy goods.
The compound used in these products is resistant to wear and tear and to cuts, in order to guarantee operators’ comfort, a softer compound, offering a very comfortable drive, has also been included in the central part of the tyre section.
There is also a non-marking version of Maglift, which does not leave any traces, ensuring flooring is left perfectly clean. It is specifically for logistical and production facilities in the food and pharmaceutical sectors where maximum hygiene is necessary, but where all the other key characteristics of Maglift are also needed. The Maglift range is now available in 23 different sizes.
