French agricultural machinery manufacturer Manitou is now officially backing the Alliance 585 tyre series. The telescopic loaders of the MLT series, NewAg and NewAg XL, are now available ex works with the 585 tread in size 460/70R24. The offer is aimed at customers looking for the right tyres for demanding applications on hard surfaces, the company said in a press release from tyre maker Yokohama Off-Highway Tires. The former Alliance Tire Group (until 2021) and Manitou have had a solid partnership for years, which both companies are expanding with the addition of another Alliance tyre to their ex-factory options.
Since its market launch in the DACH region, Bohnenkamp AG has successfully established the Alliance 585 as the perfect all-rounder for telescopic handlers, excavators and skid steer loaders. For Gert Timmer, Head of the Original Equipment Division, the Manitou decision is only logical. "Telehandlers can be used for a whole range of tasks. With the right tyre, they can do it all the better. The Alliance 585 also embodies the variety of tasks typical of loaders!"
The steel belted tyre with its large multi-directional tread blocks offers significantly improved ground contact area. This feature not only increases driving comfort on hard surfaces, but also stability on uneven terrain, even under heavy loads. Reliable traction and grip, effective self-cleaning on loose surfaces and long service life are other features of the Alliance 585. The Alliance 585 tyre is available from Bohnenkamp in 13 sizes, including the 460/70R24, 500/70R24, 440/80R24 and 400/80R24 sizes, which are important for telescopic loader applications.
