Alliance 585: New versatile ‘master’ of hard surfaces
10 April 2019
Presented at BAUMA 2019 / Research-based and customer-oriented / For highly versatile applications and particularly low wear on hard surfaces / Excellent traction and superior puncture resistance due to the steel-belted design / High fuel efficiency for compact loaders and backhoes/
Research-based and customer-oriented: The brand-new Alliance 585 is an excellent example for the dedication of ATG’s development engineers to provide highly effective solutions for challenging applications. Developed and built for equally demanding and versatile operations of construction machinery such as compact loaders and backhoes, the A585 offers excellent traction on dry, wet and wintery surfaces, superior puncture resistance, extremely low wear particularly when used on hard and highly abrasive surfaces, thus ensuring first class productivity. Featuring a unique tread design, the innovative A585 offers excellent value for money.
Vehicle productivity is paramount
Operating machines instead of waiting for maintenance or replacement makes the difference between profitability and failure. That is why development engineers at Alliance Tire Group looked at the particular requirements of operations in the construction sector. As a result, the steel-belted design of the A585 provides excellent puncture protection and the reinforced sidewalls are resistant against damage due to sharp-edged material such as gravel. The higher non-skid depth and increased rubber to void ratio reliably ensure outstanding wear resistance and superior tire life despite abrasive surfaces such as concrete and tarmac.
Flexibility with regard to kind and site of operation means that tires for such construction machinery must be designed and built to easily cope with tight manoeuvring in confined areas as well as easy and quick road transfers from one site to the next. In order to provide the optimum match for these requirements, ATG’s development engineers deliberately chose large and multi-directional tread blocks. Design and construction of the new A585 thus provide perfect ground stability, ensure optimum load carrying capacity and offer massive grip and traction.
Demand for versatility and efficiency taken seriously
To even further increase the versatility of the A585 and machines equipped with this convincing tire innovation, the tread was designed to ensure excellent self-cleaning characteristics. Changing sites of operation, from hard to soft surfaces and back, hence is a quick and easy task. At the same time, the A585 offers top comfort and safety features during road trips. It goes without saying that fuel efficiency is ranking high on the list of requirements for newly developed tires: And again, thanks to its deliberate construction, the A585 even delivers beyond expectation. The new pattern Alliance 585 will be available in six sizes by the end of July 2019, including sizes 460/70R24, 500/70R24, 440/80R24, 400/70R20, 400/70R18 and 340/80R18.
