Cuts skid-steer downtime and boosts operator comfort
Galileo Wheel, cutting-edge developers of advanced tires for farming and construction machinery, are set to release their new Galileo SkidCup – the only tire that uses the latest CupWheel technology for improved grip, traction and efficiency in addition to extended machinery lifetime, increased comfort, and zero downtime with the run flat capability.
When operating in harsh working environments, skid-steer operators often face the inevitable and frustrating delays that result from downtime and increased tread wear-out – not to mention the financial losses. The Galileo SkidCup removes these common drawbacks from skid-steer operation, ensuring your machinery functions to a high level for longer, greatly improving work efficiency and reducing operational costs. Not only that: the SkidCup tire offers much greater comfort while driving, making the working day less stressful and more productive. This also translates to reduced maintenance costs.
At almost double the footprint of other tires, the SkidCup offers better traction and grip for smoother operation and greater accuracy. In addition to the clear comfort benefits, this has a direct benefit to profitability. The increased efficiency granted by the SkidCup tire leads to greater outputs.
Skid-steer operators are all too familiar with the rapid deterioration found in most tires. That’s why the SkidCup tire can guarantee decreased treadwear and safe “double V shape” side walls for extended tire life, letting you spend more time achieving productivity goals and less time on maintenance.
The SkidCup larger foot print and improved “spring rate” creates a smoother ride on all terrains and greater lateral stability.
In addition, the SkidCup offers greater load index and run-flat capabilities, putting an end to unnecessary downtime, finishing your work day faster and to a higher standard.
“The SkidCup Tire makes decreased performance and uncomfortable skid-steer operation a thing of the past,” said Avishay Novoplanski, CupWheel inventor and Chief Technology Officer at Galileo Wheel. “At Galileo Wheel, we put the highest value on user experience and efficiency.”
The SkidCup Tire helps skid-steer operators achieve more in their daily work while experiencing greater comfort. This is the first time skid-steer operators will have encountered tires like this – Galileo Wheel has been developing this technology for years, and it does not disappoint.”
The Galileo SkidCup tires fit seamlessly over all existing rims and skid steer platforms, with no need to modify or adjust any aspect of your existing machinery.
“As a business, we focus our resources on ensuring our products meet the high standards that operators and owners expect – as they should – of their everyday machinery,” added Rami Einav, Marketing & Sales Director at Galileo Wheel. “The Galileo SkidCup Tire takes skid-steer operation to the next level, delivering a user experience that’s not just pleasurable but profitable.”
