BKT has confirmed an order for 42 of its giant Earthmax SR 468 tyres to South Eastern Coalfields (SECL) in India.
The first batch of six tyres have been shipped, with two further batches expected to arrive within a week. All 42 ordered are 40.00 R 57s and were manufactured at the BKT plant in Bhuj, India, to equip rigid dump trucks.
“The E-4 tread depth provides extreme resistance in highly challenging conditions,” BKT officials noted of the purchased model.
“This order, featuring this exceptionally sized tyre, rewards the group's willingness to enter and invest in the giantsegment, a choice driven by the requests and feedback, which the brand receives directly from users every day.”
SECL is owned by the Indian government's Ministry of Coal.
